We found the hidden treasure on the OC Boardwalk through TripAdvisor...The Hula Grill! This restaurant is the best kept secret. Before we tell you more, please be aware that this is a CASH only restaurant but don't let that deter you from trying it. Pack the cash....it's worth it!! First, if you're looking for ambience this is not the place... More

For a change from pizza and fries, we stopped in for some great chicken and salad one evening. It is nothing fancy and there is not table service so just pick up and take out to a table on the boardwalk. this is a good alternative to the unhealthy options normally found on the boardwalk.

They have a terrific Hawaiian chicken meal. The chicken is tender and perfectly marinated. The house salad and rice complete this dish with a nice amount of food for a fair price.

I wanted to try this little place because of the TripAdvisor reviews I read before our trip. It lived up to my expectations! We had coconut shrimp that was awesome even though I don't like coconut. They must have chopped it very fine so that I could not even notice the texture. One night scallops were a special and they... More

Towards the end of our vacation week, we were starting to crave something not fried, and a little lighter. We found that in hula grill. I had the salmon, it was fresh and flavorful, and grilled to perfection. The rice that came with it was really yummy, and the salad was fresh and crisp. My hubby had the chicken, which... More

Was there for lunch on July 3 2014 after receiving a referral from a "local"....and it did not disappoint! Ususally we are skeptical about eating seafood on the boardwalk, but this was fresh and delicious! We had a mahi sandwich wtih mango salsa and fries, grilled tuna sandwich, and hawaiian chicken platter. All were excellent! Please note that this is... More

What an awesome gem to find. Nothing like it anywhere on the boardwalk. Everything tastes great! The seafood is all cooked perfectly. The sticky rice is excellent and the little salad is made to complement everything else. Coconut shrip is light and perfectly flavored with an awesome sweet and spicy orange sauce on the side. I bought a 2nd order... More

Although my partner and I have eaten here in past years, we made our first seasonal visit the other night and were as pleased as we have been in the past. We arrived at 5:45 p.m., just before the dinner rush, and had no trouble finding an outside table. My partner had the ahi platter, always a favorite, and I,... More

my husband and I, after debating where to eat for dinner ended up here in the back of a little ally on the boardwalk. I asked the cashier what were their favorites and she said the hawaiian chicken and Mahi mango so that is what we ordered. They were both very savory. We both really loved the chicken it had... More

Pricier than other options but very good. The hula combo was very well prepared (mahi, coconut shrimp, and a crab cake). Other reviews on the salad dressing were on the mark, it was excellent. Staff was very friendly. Seating is limited and is picnic bench mostly outside, so going earlier avoids waiting to sit. Overall, very good.
