About Hula Grill - Kaanapali
On the water's edge on Kaanapali Beach, Hula Grill offers a stunning view of the Pacific and of the islands of Lanai and Molokai. From this distinctly Hawaiian vantage point, you are invited to join us as we celebrate the hospitality, culture and cuisine of the islands. Dinner is served in our open-air dining room where you can relax in the ambiance of a plantation era beach house while enjoying renown chef Peter Merriman's Hawaii Regional Seafood, that isn't only a favorite of vacationers, but locals too. Hawaiian fresh fish and locally grown produce are combined to create amazing menu offerings that are as colorful as they are flavorful. Fiery sunsets are served up daily along with live Hawaiian entertainment.
Our Barefoot Bar offers a more casual menu serving both lunch and dinner under authentic thatch roof umbrellas and a sand floor where you can sink your toes in. The Barefoot Bar is seated on a walk-in basis only.

Hula Grill - Kaanapali Ratings and Reviews
Came to Hula Grill to celebrate our 50th. Wedding Anniversary. We came at 5pm to take advantage of Happy Hour prior to our dinner reservation. Great HH . In the dining room we were seated quickly. We always go for The Legacy Of Aloha Menu. This is a special menu that is served from 4:45 to 5;30PM. NOTE you must request the special menu. It is not offered unless you ask. Cost $27.00. Includes app. entrée, and desert. Great dinner and view
Have been going to Hula Grill for years... always great food. This time there was a new menu... smaller portions, higher prices, poor quality! The “farm fresh” green beans were mushy, the corn was barely enough for a couple mouthfuls, and the potstickers were doughy and very heavy. Very disappointing! Will not be going back... hope the menu and kitchen are revamped! On the bright side, our server, Eve, was absolutely incredible! One of the most genuine and nicest people. She made us feel special and was the only redeeming part of our dining experience.
When we first walked in I was seated inside. I requested outside seating on my reservation. I saw a couple tables outside with no one in them and I told the host. He asked the front person and I guess she gave them both away right after us. Even tho we got there first.
It was hot inside cause the fans above was not on. Blaze to the rescue. He turned the fans on. And offered great service! Glad we got seated at his table cause he was so good at what he does. Friendly, anticipated customers needs, knew his products! Food was delicious too. He even took the time to congratulate my nephew who had a renaissance card and the manager took time out to congratulate my nephew too. Mahalo Blaze!
Very hot by kitchen, food good but very over priced for what you get, didn’t bring complete order, had to wait very long for anything we asked for, drinks ( none from the bar) napkins, butter etc....
Loved the waitress but she had too many tables to attend too!
What a delicious dinner. Was surprised to find such a great spot in a tourist oriented location. The restaurant is next to the casual bar area visible from the shopping area. Tables are well spaced and service from the moment we arrived was excellent. We shared a ceviche appetizer and followed it with the filet special and the roasted chicken over cornbread. Both were delicious. The wine list has some very reasonably priced choices too. We’re picky diners and we recommend this spot.
We had a group of 4. Each person ordered something different. Everyone thought the food wasn't that great especially for the price. The shrimp carbonara was too salty. The sauce for the snapper was also really salty. The service however was friendly and attentative. The restaurant is as close to the ocean as it gets.
The hostess was absolutely unaccommodating. She laughed in our face when we told her that we had been waiting there for 40 minutes even though she told us only a few minutes. THen when they did seat us, they tried seating us in the worst table right near their stand. Additionally, while we waited for 40 minutes, we sat right by where the food was coming out and watched as the head server accidentally used his hands and touched multiple entrees and wiped his hands on his shorts (completely unsanitary). Also, we watched as food sat their for 20+ minutes under the heat lamp...While the sashimi appetizer and our waitress was great, everything else about this place was awful.
Pretty good - close to great. We got off to a slow start since they were running behind, and we had to stand for 15 minutes past our reservation time. After that the service was very good. A very large space, full and noisy, but tolerable. Our food was nicely prepared and presented, but the fish dishes needed more of the tasty sauces that made them special.
The Tasting Menu mentioned on the website was excellent both in quality and value but the hostess did not provide the Tasting Menu, we had to ask our waiter for it. Great time right next to the beach. The only negative is that several parents let their kids play on the lawn area between the seating area and the beach walk which would have put a damper on a romantic sunset meal and the staff did nothing to discourage it.
Hostess was not well trained to seat guests. Spent about 15 min getting us seated after first taking us to a table that had five chairs for six of us. Ended up getting a chair and seating another group of six at our table so we had to wait on another table. Once seated, all went well.
Go to the Hula Grill. We had a great waiter, Reed, who was attentive to our needs. We had one of the best seats in the restaurant. We used open door to book and let them know it was our Honeymoon. No wait to be seated for lunch reservation. The food was amazing. We ordered, poke tacos, sashimi and Fish Tacos. The price was to be expected but, a free dessert to celebrate would have made this trip unforgettable. Nonetheless, the Hula Pie was amazing. And overall worth making a viait. Thanks for the experience Hula Grill. Good job.
Stopped at the hula grill on the first night of our honeymoon in Maui. My wife and I️ ordered the shrimp cocktail appetizer which you could tell that it was very fresh, no cocktail sauce was needed. My wife ordered the ahi tuna steak cooked rare and I️ had the snapper. Halfway through dinner we traded plates just because everything was so good and we wanted to try the other plate.
Located on Kaanapali beach and had a live band and tiki torches which really made the experience complete. Also, our server Montana was excellent.
Would highly recommend to anyone traveling to Maui.
