ALOHA GRILL IS AUTHENTIC AND DELISH!!!

I lived in Hawaii for over four years, and believe me, there is nothing quite like authentic Hawaiian food. When I get the inevitable cravings to "return to the islands" gastronomically, I am delighted to jump in my car and head to Aloha Grill!

We eat here every chance we get. We moved from Hawaii and this is truly authentic Hawaiian food. The staff are great and the place is spotless as far as cleanliness. I highly recommend it for a great meal.

Staying in Gulf Breeze area for a week solo I decided I would not eat at the same place twice. Wrong!!! I ate here one night and new I had to go again. I had the teriyaki steak plate both times. One was dining in and one was take out. The steak was perfect and the teriyaki sauce was amazing.... More

We tried it for dinner and the service and taste was good. They have some expensive meals, we chose the Mahi sandwich and chicken bowl. Both around $10. We beat the Friday crowd, as we were leaving the parking lot was filling up! Not many choices around Gulf Breeze, but this is definitely one of the better.

Got a late start for dinner during Spring break so decided to try Aloha because most other places in Pensacola Beach were already booked for the night. So very glad we did. The food was excellent, waiter was extremely helpful and attentive, and our family of our had a great time. Overall, the best restaurant we tried during our 5... More

This is our local "go to" restaurant. Excellent, especially if you make the right choices. We go to this restaurant or have carry out approximately 4 times per month. Great service, friendly staff, and delicious food. Ribs, bbq pork, mahisandwich all good.

We were overall impressed with everything! The Aloha sampler platter was a good sized appetizer and I enjoyed all the sides with my meal. The whole table agreed though, we wanted more pineapple in our side dishes - the mac salad would've been amazing with some pineapple! The service was excellent and the variety of options was nice (even though... More

Loved the fish tacos and the shrimp! Salads are great too. We use this often for take out, and the food is usually ready when it it supposed to be and hot.
