Very disappointed in Hula Grill. The honey mac-nut shrimp was a delicious appetizer. The localicious salad was just ok. The burger and fish tacos were very disappointing. Not what I expected in Hawaii.

We had the loco moco and the mochi waffle. Both were delicious and arrived very quickly. Waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. Prices are reasonable for the area. View was unbeatable. Much quieter than Duke’s downstairs. Perfect last morning breakfast in Waikiki!

We were looking for outside seating beach view option for breakfast and made a reservation at Hula Grill based on our criteria and reviews. Liked it so much we returned each day until our departure. Mochi Waffles we’re our favorite. Added a side of bacon and it was awesome. Coffee was the best we had. Servers were attentive and food was served quickly. Definitely recommend you give Hula Grill a try!

Our dinner was delicious and the service was very good. Fresh marlin on a caeser salad, fresh ahi, fabulous green beans. Good wine. The hula pie is awesome (huge, so share it). We were on the lanai in the lovely warm weather and breeze, and there was live entertainment below, but not too loud. We were there late (8:45pm). Very enjoyable. We also had breakfast there and it was great as well!

The Mahi mahi fish was dry. My filet was good, done medium rare but not charred on the outside as requested. The Hula Ice Cream dessert was fabulous. Service good not pushy.

We had a reservation and were seated right away. Staff was attentive and food came out quickly. So good we will ret to return tomorrow! Had the banana macadamia nut pancakes and the mochi strawberry waffle with coffee. Best breakfast yet and we have been quite s few places. Can’t top the view. Pricey but worth it.

We were seated on a gorgeous porch overlooking the Outrigger pool and Waikiki beach. Our waiter was excellent; very attentive and also warned us when we were about to order multiple dishes that were larger than we assumed. His warnings kept us from wasting money which was greatly appreciated. I had the daily seafood special which was two kinds of fish with a coconut curry and it was delicious. My mom enjoyed her guava BBQ chicken and my husband loved the seafood chowder. For dessert, my mom ordered the HUGE hula pie, and my husband and I shared the pono pie which was normal sized and delicious. We had to help my mom eat the hula pie whose slice was about 6 inches tall. Wonderful dining experience!
