Once again, a place we can depend on

We probably come here a dozen times a Season, why? Good food, pleasant service and always very good . On the boardwalk, one of the best choices you can make!

Fresh,healthy grilled options on the boardwalk are such a welcomed change from the deep fried heart attack options that have overrun OC. The papaya dressing served with the hula grill salad is scrumptious. Grilled tuna, salmon, shrimp are all cooked to order. Yum!

This was a tasty, inexpensive, unique meal on the boardwalk. Right next to Bashful Banana this place has a bunch of cool options to dinner. I have the Hiwaiian Chicken and my Wife had the no filler added crab cake. It was cooked immediately and served within five minutes. The staff was nice and the food was delicious. For something...

Hula Grill is a casual restaurant with outside dining. Our food was abundant, delicious and very reasonably priced. Servers were friendly and attentive. My friend and I would definitely return here. A small salad with yummy papaya dressing came with our meals.

Very good food tucked back a little off the boardwalk traffic. Great place to catch your breath and enjoy a good meal while still 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
