My husband and I happened upon the Hula Grill by chance while strolling the boardwalk in Ocean City. We love all things Hawaiian, so we gave Hula Grill a try. We are so glad that we did! Their Huli Huli sauce is NOM-NOMerific! I had the Hula Burger (grilled chicken breast dressed in Huli Huli sauce on a bun) and... More

We absolutely LOVE the Hula Grill. Things to know before you go; it's small. There are six tables inside and a handful of shared tables outside. They do offer takeout, which is equally good. If you plan to dine in, avoid peak dinner hours. Cash only; no credit cards. The food is fresh, served quickly, portions are generous, and the... More

Woohoo! Much better than when I was last here. Food was fresh, healthy and flavorful. Once my husband ate here, he didn't want to go anywhere else. We ate here three times and each meal was as great as the last. Highly recommended.

This is a hidden gem on the Ocean city boardwalk. The Hula Grill is a great place to be able to get some seafood right on the boardwalk. Their crab cakes are some of the best we have ever had. Each entree comes with rice and a salad, the dressing on the salad was very good. They allow you to... More

I had the chicken platter. It was cooked perfectly and the tasted great. My husband had the Hula pork sandwich platter. Both came with a side salad with a very tasty dressing. We will eat here again, for sure, the next time we're in Ocean City.

The Hula Grill offers a variety of healthy entrees, from shrimp to salads, with a unique taste of Hawaii and Asia combined; it is a nice break from the boardwalk "norm" of burgers, pizza, and fries. I would recommend the BBQ pulled pork platter, which comes with coconut rice and a salad. The service is quick and friendly, and there... More

We just ate lunch here. It's a small place attached to the boardwalk main facade, but one of three restaurants that are actually perpendicular to the boardwalk. We walked by it twice. I had a hula chicken sandwich. It was a whole chicken breast filet, perfectly grilled, covered just refectory with its own hula sauce. The bun was fresh, and... More

we arrived shortly after 5pm which is a necessity to be seated quickly on the Sunday of Labor Day wknd in a boardwalk restaurant. I was craving fried oysters and my daughter remembered I'd gotten them there last year. When we first arrived, seating looked questionable but we got the last table. The seating is definitely sufficient, inside if it's... More

Decent and fairly fresh tasting food. It's slightly off the boardwalk which is nice since you'll have fewer gulls dive bombing on your food. Pulled pork - pretty good. Coconut shrimp - meh. It's a nice change up from pizza and chicken nugget type food. Kids meal was kinda pricey. Cash only. Warning - If you're ordering takeout/pickup, it's nearly... More

I spent 3 days in Ocean City, NJ last week. 2 of those days we ate at the Hula Grill! Because it is always excellent; the food is so fresh and delicious. Their sauces are their "signature" and they ARE incredible. The salad dressing is so good, you could put it on everything. The service is great and even though... More
