Went there intending to have a light dinner. After seeing the prices we did appetizers instead. Average. Nothing special. Will not go back.

The best thing about the Kula Ranch Steakhouse is that it's connected to the resort. I can't imagine dining here if it was a destination otherwise. While the food is okay, I have to say that it is far from great. Beer and wine prices are average. The patio is a nice place to enjoy a beautiful Monterey afternoon or... More

I felt like I was back home in Hawai'i! The food was delicious! My boyfriend loved the entire sushi menu! They had a wide assortment of sushi that you do not even seen at sushi restaurants. They had wonderful steak and seafood options as well as great vegetarian options. There is something for everyone there. I loved the cocktail options--reminded... More

Had diner here, was easy elk from RV park. Nothing special but good food and service. Not a lot of restaurant choices in the area.

Kula's is one of the best places for a larger group. They are willing to create a larger space, do separate checks, and provide good service. Tonight we were eleven. The menu has something for everyone and the sushi is very very good. One of my favorite appetizers is the Hawaiian nachos: egg roll chips topped with cheese, chicken, scallions... More

The setting is great, and the ambiance quite nice. But the restaurant is just ok. The food was tasty, but nothing notable. And the service was sort of lackluster. There was nothing bad about it, but there are so many solidly good restaurants nearby I just can't justify dining here. I did give it a second try to be sure... More

A wonderful restaurant near the beach. I had a business meeting at this restaurant. What a wonderful area. Lovely resort at entry. Access to a beautiful beach plus a lovely restaurant. I only had a bowl of vegetable beef soup but it was one of the best. Chunky fresh vegetables in a rich, tasty clear broth with tender pieces of... More

Two of us had lunch there in early November and were pleased with everything. We had the calamari strips and the coconut onion rings and both were very good! This was not the usual frozen squid rings and heads as you mostly get, but it was a calamari steak, cut into strips, breaded and fried. We both had what was... More

Our dinner was delicious! The menu offers a little something different, but appealling to everyone. Steakhouse with an island twist. The service was fantastic and the ukelele player was fun and had a great voice. We will definitely go back.
