Good clean healthier semi-fast food for Boardwalk enviorment. Serves fish sandwiches etc. Calling it Hawaiian is a bit of a stretch. I see it as alternative to the pure junk served on Boardwalk which is why the seagulls weigh 50 lbs. each.

We love the Hula Grill. Actual good food on the boardwalk isn't easy to come by! Fresh seafood prepared nicely and quickly make this restaurant a good and healthy option when you've had enough pizza.

Hula grill. A great place when you get tired of eating pizza. Good seafood, chicken and pulled pork. Service is great and eating outside is a real plus. Only take cash, but an ATM on site. Get your dessert on the boardwalk.

Wife and son liked their salmon but avoid the burgers and shrimp as they are low quality. Mango Mahi was below average. Pay before you eat is stupid. Food comes so fast it is obvious it is not freshly made. Look out for seagulls stealing your food. Go somewhere else if you have any standards at all.

My family loves this place!! All options on the menu are great and they are kid friendly too!! I personally crave the sticky rice and huli huli sauce!! Always a little leery to get salmon from places, but their teriyaki salmon had just the right flavor. We have 2 solar hula girls in our window as a constant reminder of... More

All of us were very happy with our meals. So nice to get food on Boardwalk that is not super greasy and gross. We had the coconut shrimp, the firecracker shrimp and hula chicken and it was all great.

The food here is consistently several steps above the typical food you find on the OC boardwalk. Grilled fish with rice and vegetables, with a variety of delicious sauces. Even more "standard" boardwalk food like burgers, French fries and chicken tenders are all expertly prepared. Cash only, with limited indoor seating but a sizable outdoor sitting area.

neat food that was well prepared. CASH only! The firecracker shrimp were my favorite! The salad dressing was also really good. The service was nice and the place was clean. It is definitely a boardwalk style restaurant-not really a romantic spot. But OC Jersey is kind of like that all over. It is much more of a family place than... More

When you're tired of boardwalk food, stop in and eat your fill at the Hulu Grill. Very quick service and good choices to make everybody happy. Hawaiian chicken has a nice sauce that goes well with their sticky rice.Try it. We went a little later, 6:30 or so inorder to assure a table outside.
