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.

I call this an "impromptu" lunch because it was just that. My wife and I were at Whalers Villiage and took a walk down to the beach area. We saw these really cool looking grass style tiki huts and just had to sit down and enjoy the atmosphere and view. This outside area is called the Sand Bar if I... More

Sitting out on the oceanfront with grass hut tables, ocean waves, tiki torches lit, a hula girl dancing to a singer and a cocktail in hand-what more could you want! The tiki bar has a great list of frozen and mixed drinks and the food was very good-fresh catch of the day. Definitely go here for one of your dinners!

One of two of the hotspots so very crowded. We didn't want to wait so we ate at the bar which provided both outdoor & indoor menus. I have been picking well and had Onah with mushroom risotto and hubby had fish tacos. My only concern was watching the chef keep using the same mixing bowls for salads all night.... More

My wife and I walked down the Kaanapali Beach path after a few hours of fun in the sun and decided on Hula's based on the look of dishes we spotted and because of their view. The Maui Cruiser juice drink is amazing if you like fruit, so fresh! The Calamari was a incredibly fresh and real meaty. My wife... More

We were seated immediately by friendly staff members. Having had a pretty disappointing meal the previous night at Son'z Steakhouse, we asked our poor server many questions about the menu items and beverage options. He fielded each question professionally and promptly and was incredibly outgoing. Our group enjoyed everything that was brought to the table and we wish we had... More

We (four of us) enjoyed dinner at Hula Grill. The wait staff is very attentive and ensured we enjoyed our dining experience. The food is absolutely delicious. Our only complaint, if you want to consider it a complaint, is my wife asked to substitute risotto for the rice on her dish. Our waitress was very accommodating, but failed to explain... More

Sat at table in barefoot bar which has a great open atmosphere. Waiter Scott was nice and extremely informative which was fine for us. I'd highly recommend the fish tacos w/guac and mango jalepeno margaritas as both were delicious. I had many fish tacos in my Hawaii visit and these were probably the best. Wasn't thrilled about the fried crab... More
