Good Food

Hula has good food and very accommodating to my daughter who has a nut allergy. The specials are very good. The restaurant is accessed from the boardwalk but is on a short pier from the store fronts so you cannot see the restaurant until walking down the small pier.

This is our "go to" place for dining in or take out in OCNJ. The crab cake platter is excellent , with the seasoned rice and salad with a tasty dressing. Have also had the grilled Salmon and teriyaki Chicken - all good choices. We 've visited this restaurant for a number of years and the food is consistently good,... More

The restaurant offers excellent alternatives, such as their Hawaiian chicken, from the ordinary and repetitive fried foods you'll find in the boardwalk. The prices are reasonable. The staff are courteous. We'll definitely go back for more.

It lives up to its fame! Nice fresh fast food! The only choice for vegetarians is a salad. But the coconut shrimp is great! If you need to use the restrooms, don't expect clean...

Kiddies were down with Easy Mac at the condo, so I hiked down to the well-reviewed Hula restaurant for some dinner to take out. If you drive it will take you longer to find a parking spot on a Sunday night than it will to get served your meal. Wow, they are fast. I ordered a key lime pie for... More

This is a great alternative to the boardwalk fries and pizza, but you get what you pay for. A solo crab cake sandwich over $9. A burger No fries or chips $7.50. Fish and mango salsa are yummy!Limited inside and a fair amount of outside tables.

It's a small place on the boardwalk, not much to it. You can sit outside or inside...not dressy, or fancy, it's boardwalk/beach attire. With that being said the food is absolutely amazing, dave the owner has spent time on the north Shore of Oahu and has totally captured the taste of hawaii.

I'm not a pizza and fries kind of person, so when my spouse and I spent three days in Ocean City, I immediately started looking for healthy food options. On the basis of reviews of the Hula, we ate here twice. It's a little off the beaten path, at the end of an aisle off the boardwalk near 9th Ave.... More

Hula Grill is hidden between 9th &10th Streets on the boardwalk in Ocean City,NJ. It's at the end of other eateries and across from go-karts and a miniature golf course. The hula sauce is so good that you want to lick your plate. On the dish is salad, rice that's out of this world (yes, rice), and a healthy portion... More
