Very good simple food on the boardwalk.

The crab cakes are pretty close to perfect assuming you like lump crab cakes and not deviled Maryland style cakes. Simple salad and some sticky rice and you have a very enjoyable meal all on the boardwalk. As usual, if you go for dinner in peak season, you will have to wait and fight for seats.

Hawaiian chicken platter is the best!!! The service is fast and prices are reasonable for the boardwalk.

Food is good and priced right. Great choice to dine while on the boardwalk but not "fast food" but is fast service.

This is a regular stop for us. The fire cracker shrimp and Hawaiian chicken are my two favorites. The meals come with a nice side salad and a scoop of sticky rice. Some tables inside but most tables are outside under umbrellas. Service is very good. At dinner time in the summer there is usually a line. Takeouts are available.

We live here in OC and eat here often b/c we love it! We have tried many of the different entrees and they all have been delicious- The fish and seafood is always fresh, the sauces are simple and very tasty. Whenever we have company, we either take them there or do a quick takeout. If you eat there, you... More

Have lived in the area for years, but have never been here. Heard everyone rave about it. We stopped for a quick lunch and I expected average Boardwalk food. I was blown away! Food was outstanding! We shared the black bean soup and Ahi tuna burger. Fantastic. Definite return and recommend visiting.

Dined here about four or five times over the years. Food is good and something different than the typical boardwalk stuff. For the price it is a good option for the boardwalk as everything is obviously overpriced. Seating area is small, but expected.

We have gone as a family to Ocean City for 5 years now and my favorite place to eat is the hula grill. My favorite thing there is the coconut shrimp platter. Salad's great and the rice yummy. Coconut shrimp is wonderful. My son loves the firecracker shrimp. My daughter on law had a burger and she said it was... More
