Great spot to eat outside

This is a great spot to eat outside looking out over the water. Inside is small and not my favorite pick. Food is very good and staff has been great. I do recommend it!

We were looking for something overlooking the water that sold seafood. It was our second choice but well worth it. It's in an industrial area but once we found it, we decided to go in once the local told us they always go there. They had a great deck where we watched the sunset and had very good seafood. We...

Visited on a Friday evening, there was a good crowd in. Excellent selection of beers and the option to sample before you buy was good.

Went here for dinner, bet it would be a nice location during the day right on the water. Drinks and food were decent/ average. Wide selection on the menu. Service was pretty lacking/ slow at first. Not sure if it was a lot of locals that go there. Would go again if I was in the area and hopefully have... More

We had a Bridal Shower at Hula Bay Club. The service was flawless, as well as the food. The experience was top notch! So glad we had our event at Hula Bay Club

Always have a good time and good food here. The schallops are wonderful and the blackened Grouper are wonderful. Bar staff is nice. Lunch is busy but nonetheless you are still well taken care of.

We arrived here on the Christmas Saturday and was told it might be 20 mins before we get a table. No problem. HOWEVER, we waited 40 minutes and then the server told us we might have to wait OVER AN HOUR for the food. It was really good of him to tell us that but why didn't the hostess tell... More

Make no mistake this is not a high end restaurant but the meals can add up depending on what you order. Martinis and margaritas, sushi and wings, it has a wide menu and the items are ok. The view is brilliant, the vibe is very laid back, the staff were running around but they weren't bad (place was full on... More

Let me start with the positives - the food is very good and the view of the bay is very pretty .. Hula bay has a lot of potential .. But 1.
