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.

We ate here our first night in Maui. The Mahi Mahi fish and chips were delicious and the drinks were good. Service was slow but very friendly. Good location on beach walk at entrance to Whaler's Village.

we stopped here for lunch and had fish tacos, burgers, drinks and Hula Pie. All were great as was the service. The view is also great. The fish tacos were very well prepared and were light and flaky with a great homemade sweet sauce to add on top. All in my party loved and and would return.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Hula Grill. We sat right outside and had a beautiful view of the beach and ocean. Where able to watch Whales breach while drinking and eating dinner. Drinks, appetizers and main courses were delicious. Servers were all professional, gracious and attentive. Try the jalapeno corn bread, seafood ceviche and the macadamia nut fish! Would... More

This restaurant is right on the boardwalk overlooking the ocean. Very relaxed atmosphere. Had lunch with my husband while in maui. I had the tatso, bacon and Asian pear salad with chicken. I didn't taste any bacon and it could have used more dressing, but it was okay overall. Probably would try something different next time. My husband has the... More

The location over on the edge of the ocean is spectacular and the sandy floor completes the ambiance. I had ribs and my wife had fish. Both were excellent. My only disappointment was that wine is not included in happy hour options but that turned out to not be much of a loss since the wine only cost $8 a... More

Very good food, but very expensive!! Great atmosphere. Able to watch sunset while eating dinner. $113.00 for 2 of us, and only a beer with meal, so not a lot on drinks.

We stopped here for lunch and had a wonderful time. We watched humpback whales while waiting for our food. There was a live singer who sang beautifully. The music was soothing and not too loud. Our food was delicious especially our appetizer crab filled wontons. The fish we ordered was delicious also. I think we will go back our last... More

We were staying at Honua Kai with Duke's on site but could never take a reservation for us and called Hula Grill and they were so nice and helpful.
