Hula Grill located in the Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort on the 2nd Floor is one of those hidden gems if you did not know about it. The view of Diamond Head and Waikiki Beach is better than the adjacent Royal Hawaii Hotel Restaurant since you are 1 floor higher. Food and Service was outstanding. Even though the dining room was busy, we never felt rushed and were always being checked on by the staff for refills. Prices are reasonable and the menu has healthy options and hearty items too. We would recommend this restaurant for location and food.

1. Very noisy - could not carry on a conversation at your table
2. In light of the virus, hygiene was concerning. Kitchen and waitress prep area was so crowded it would have been impossible to control cleanliness.
3. Overall it was disappointing.

The food was great the atmosphere was incredible and the scenery could not be beaten. We had a little bad luck with the timeliness of things because our waitress had a large table but she made up for it with a hula pie on the house 👍

Nice place, good views and atmosphere. Best value would be happy hour selection and food was better there. Restaurant food is OK, I would not rave about it, though. We had steak and it was average. My pineaple salad was too sweet for me. With some cruncy bits that tasted like sugar crystals. Unless you are a big fan of sugar would not recommend it. We had a good time but mostly because of the lication and the atmosphere. Live music was nice so it was a good experience overall.

Went to the Hula Grill to watch the sunset and enjoy their food and beverages on a recent trip to Oahu. We had terrific cocktails to start, and a Kevin brought some delicious warm focaccia that we dipped in a combination of olive oil and sweet chili water...what a combination! So good we had a second round. We enjoyed the shrimp appetizer then all had fish for dinner. The special was a two fish combination with mahi mahi and nairogi(sp) prepared differently, both fresh and delicious. We also enjoyed coconut milk creamer corn, an awesome dish with the vegetables coming from local farmers. During our visit, the restaurant got very busy so make a reservation so you don’t have to wait. It’s open air and on the second floor above Dukes in the Outrigger Hotel. A great meal and enjoyable views!

Hula Grill same location as Duke's Waikiki, but you can make reservations. Food is terrific, fresh fish, steaks, Hawaiin drinks and a view over the beach. They have chef specials which I recommend giving a try. Very nice atmosphere. Any of the servers that have waited for our table are personable and helpful in making food choices. They'll take pictures for you (using your own camera) to reminisce once you get home. Always a stop when in Waikiki.

We had a table overlooking the ocean. Best mai tai’s on the island. We had our favorite, the fish special, which was outstanding ! Kevin, our waiter, was great. He was so friendly and efficient. We had a wonderful time. I also have to give a shout out to the cocktail waitress, that served us our drinks in the bar. She was also so friendly and efficient, even though she was very busy. I don’t remember, but she had long brown hair. Another excellent experience at the Waikiki Hula Grill.

This was our favorite restaurant in Oahu! The food was amazing, the service was friendly, and the drinks were even better! We ate:
- Sashimi (appetizer)
- Scallops (appetizer)
- Coconut Corn (appetizer)
- Ahi Tacos (appetizer)
- Back Scratcher (drink)
- The chef's special (crusted mahi mahi and marlin, with lobster risotto)
- pineapple upside down cake with ginger ice cream
- Also, the bread in the sweet chili sauce was amazing!
We left so full, but it was so worth it.

I thoroughly enjoyed our meals at Hula Grill, once for dinner on a Friday, and a second time for lunch on Monday. Night vibes here are bustling and energetic — live music, hula dance, lively crowd — and peaceful and laid back during the day.

Our servers Jorge and Devin were personable and on point. Service was quick, even when we had only an hour for lunch. The food was great — I can vouch for the fresh mahi mahi and marlin, as well as the pineapple and green salad and fish and chips.

Tip: try the “chili water” condiment, even if you don’t like spice. It’s very mild and very tasty!
