When you first walk in you are in a large bright room and the building smells like you are in tropics! We can here for the Urban Ale Trail. Tried some beer and some foods. Oh my goodness the Hawaiian Ceviche was amazing and the Lobster Bisque is not to be missed! Can't wait to come back for dinner!

We arrived at Hula's on a Friday evening after the sunset and got seated right away. The atmosphere is great here. Our server was very friendly. I had the pork tacos, so tasty! Pork with coleslaw on double corn shells, with some rice and black beans on the side. Delicious. Great find in old town Scottsdale. Will definitely come back.

Hula's on Central was super busy yet we had excellent service and the food was fantastic! Took a couple of friends who are having birthdays this week and they loved it, even had a huge "birthday" sunday. Will definitely return, brunch on Sunday until 2:30 pm and I think happy hour drinks all day!

Met a friend here to catch up over some beers and ended up having a great meal. I ordered the blackened ahi sandwich which was really fantastic, spicy and cooked very well. My only complaint was that I had some silver skin (?) or something that ran through a large part of the ahi which required me to tear apart... More

Had a great time in Hula's fun environment! The service was stellar and everyone was very friendly and chatty. I got the shrimp egg roles and OH MY GOSH! So delish! The drinks at Hula's are also spectacular! Great find! Totally recommend!

Looking for a late lunch before checking into hotel. If we lives in Phoenix this would be a regular stop. Everything was delicious from the drinks and food to the ambiance sitting at the bar. Go!!!

Hula's is a trendy restaurant with a great menu and very interesting food. It's a combination of Hawaiian meets the southwest. The downtown phoenix location has a wonderful patio and it's dog friendly. The servers will bring your dog a bowl of water or ice. The weekend brunch is as good as lunch and dinner. Try it once and you'll... More

This was our first time to Hula and most likely the last. The wait staff acted as though they were doing you a favor to take care of you...throughout the evening, not just during 'rush'. While the food tasted fine, it was not hot when served. Again, a tribute to the wait staff not promptly delivering the food when put-up.... More
