Description: On the water's edge on Kaanapali Beach, Hula Grill offers a stunning view...
On the water's edge on Kaanapali Beach, Hula Grill offers a stunning view of the Pacific and of the islands of Lanai and Molokai that has to be seen to be believed. From this distinctly Hawaiian vantage point, you are invited to join us as we celebrate the hospitality, culture and cuisine of the islands. Dinner is served in our open-air dining room where you can relax in the ambiance of a plantation era beach house while enjoying renown chef Peter Merriman's Hawaii regional seafood that isn't only a favorite of vacationers, but locals, too. Hawaiian fresh fish and locally grown produce are combined to create amazing menu offerings that are as colorful as they are flavorful. Fiery sunsets are served up daily along with live Hawaiian entertainment. Our Barefoot Bar offers a more casual menu serving both lunch and dinner under authentic thatch roof umbrellas and a sand floor where you can sink your toes in. The Barefoot Bar is seated on a walk-in basis only.

Location is right on the beachfont and you see a great sunset. Prices are midpriced but service is excellent. Portions are average. Food is very good. After dinner go for a nice walk along the beachfront sidewalks or go shopping at whalers village. If you drive and park in the garage at whalers... read more

Have lunch or dinner under the thatched palapas with your toes in the sand at the Barefoot Bar of the Hula Grill. Hula Grill serves up a delicious and vibrant array of menu items featuring fresh Hawaiian fish and locally sourced seafood and vegetables. Enjoyed dining at Hula Grill again and again.

Make sure you go to the dining room. We ordered the stuffed crab - just excellent - and Peter's special (fish) - well selected ingredients, excellently prepared. For a restaurant with barefoot are: outstanding!

Our family group (of 14) ate at the Hula Grill after a sunset sail. Initially, since restaurants on Maui don't accept reservations for parties larger than 8, we had three separate table reservations. The staff was AMAZING and agreed to put us all at one table. It was GREAT!!!! Our server did a fantastic job and got every single person's... More

The only reason why we eat here is the location and its casual beachside dining and its live music. The food is average. They do have a delicious guava ketchup that can only be found here. Come for an early dinner and check out the sunset, they don't take reservations....

We had a very nice meal with excellent service at the Hula Grill. We were at this restaurant 10 years ago more thoroughly pleased with the experience. We plan to go back the next time we're in Maui.

Really enjoyed Hula Hut! Were sat on the "beach" patio where we enjoyed the live entertainment, a great view and delicious food! Our server was excellent at recommending his favorite meals and beers to go with.

We stopped here right after getting off the plane in Maui. Food was good and the view was perfect. We were starving and our food arrived quickly. Loved the macademia nut cole slaw. It was so good I almost ordered another portion.
