Was in the Tampa area visiting clients and we made another trip to Hula Bay. As usual the staff and service was great. The night we visited was very windy but they had the flaps down so we were able to sit out on the deck. There were 4 in our party and we all tried something different on the... More

Very nice place. Great view of water and boats. Oscar eggs Benedict was fine but the crab didn't really add anything our waitress was very attentive and apologized for not being more so. No need.

Have been to Hula Bay about five times and have always had a great experience! The atmosphere and service are always excellent and the food is amazing! Have had the sushi about four times and it's always fresh and tastes so good! Will continue going back and fyi, the sunsets are beyond words from the porch!

HORRIBLE SERVICE. Went to the bar and waited almost 15 minutes to order a drink. Ok, that's fine, she was a little busy. Then the bar cleared out and a big party left a practically empty bar. Ordered another beer and appetizers. Fish Dip and grouper nuggets. 20 minutes later, after the beer is finished (and still havent seen the... More

The view was great and I thought the food was a little over priced but very tasty. The only real problem I had was our server seemed to have less of a personality than the Luau pork sandwich I had. I don't particularly care for real chatty servers but I think our server may have said a total of two... More

(My apologies to Otis Redding.) Went here for drinks and dinner. Hula Bay has a large outdoor seating area and bar to enjoy the views of the marina and bay. This is going to attract you to this location but the service will make you glad you made the trip. They easily accommodated our large group both with a large... More

Spent the night before Christmas Eve with family and friends here for a quiet dinner & a few libations. The waitstaff got us a table overlooking the water and promptly took our order. The menu had a great selection of foods (from sushi to burgers & sandwiches to entrees) we were all pleased with the choices. The entire night made... More

EXCELLENT!! We really like the sushi at Hula Bay. It's always fresh and looks and tastes like fresh sushi should. The views of the water are amazing from the deck. We especially like enjoying our sushi on the deck because it's so relaxing. We order the Volcano roll and the Maui roll ever time we go which lately is twice... More

The place is located in a yacht club and have great views from the Tampa Bay. You can see the sunset also. They have also an area for bands. It is a relax and safe place. The food is good but the quantity of the main dishes it is pretty small. For the price I recommend the soups and sushi.... More
