I have eaten here twice now and it has been outstanding both times. The jungle tofu bowl is my favorite so far and the lilikoi pie is amazing. If you go during happy hour they have $5 appetizers and tropical drinks. If you are visiting cannery row Hula's is just a short walk up to Lighthouse Dr.

Great Time and great food. I had the wings and bacon mac and cheese off the appetizer menu and wow, it was great food. The flavor was outstanding and the service was just as good. The prices were typical for the area and not too farfetched. They had a full but the bar down the street called Carbone’s was a... More

Excellent food and drinks at a reasonable price. We had happy hour prices on drinks all night on Tuesdays and happy hour prices on appetizers. The coconut shrimp was great and my Ahi tuna perfect. My partner had the Udon noodle fish soup with 3 kinds of fish and it was so delicious, best ever. And to top it off... More

I was delighted to find this place was near our hotel - athough we did have about a 30 minute wait it was worth it. As it happened on the night we went - all cocktails were $5 and all appetisers were £5. We had the the wings and Hawaiian ceviche for starters - the ceviche was excellent - really... More

Came here on recommendation of our host at the B&B where we stayed. Food was very good. Seems like a good local hangout and bar. Fun spot.

Nice and new tastes. Casual environment. Service is good and the working people are nice and present when you need, not too much as in the major part of the US restaurants (thing that an italian doesn't like as we are used to a totally different system). So was a big point for us. The food is innovative. Sometimes too... More

Had 4 great meals tonight. Arrived 8pm, the place was buzzing but we were lucky to get a table. Others who came in after us had a short wait. Service was great . Very attentive and fun staff. Special was an awesome crab cake for a starter. Then we had two tuna dishes, a burger and rack of ribs. All... More

We had a great experience at this restaurant! The food was yummy and the service was great and fast (which was nice since we had kids with us). Best of all it is a couple blocks up from Cannery Row so we were seated right away instead of waiting thirty minutes for a table.

Great restaurant, exceptional service and delicious food! Dined for lunch and were lucky enough to sit out on the back patio. Great happy hour drink specials and appetizers. Ask the servers they will not steer you wrong. Jawaiian pork plate, dukes pork plate, ahi tacos, slaw, rice all fabulous!
