Deb and her staff are alway really nice. And the food is so...delicious. From their "pupus" the Asian dumplings, which are always so tasty as a starter. And that is followed up either with the spicy Hawaiian wrap or the Mahi Tacos, either way I can't go wrong. I've yet to have a dessert, I'm always too full. By the... More

This place brings back a taste from home. My grandmother is Hawaiian and their food takes me back to grandma's kitchen. I love their Kalua pork. Needs to have more smoked flavor.

I found this restaurant by researching Trip Advisor while visiting Pensacola and we feel it truly, truly deserves it's #1 rating for area restaurants. I did not expect it to be located in a small shopping center off the main drag, but we sat outside nonetheless, next to a trickling fountain, and never even noticed if any traffic was passing....

We stopped for lunch and loved it! The Mahi Wrap was perfectly blackened and delicious as were the Aloha fries. My husband tried the Teriyaki Burger and he loved it-said it was one of the best burgers he's ever had. The service was excellent and staff very friendly. Great value for your money and large servings too! We will definitely... More

We were driving along looking for lunch and found Papa Nalu Aloha Grill, largely because of great reviews. It sits on the end of a small strip mall, with a small outdoor eating area and two rooms inside. Outdoors they have thatched roof umbrellas and a small water feature in keeping with their theme. They call themselves Hawaiian Fusion and... More

The food is consistently tasty and the people are great. Their prices are very reasonable. It's a casual and family-friendly place - a real gem for the area!

We went to Aloha Grill for the first time last Saturday. The food and service was outstanding. The moment we walked in, we were greeted with a friendly "Aloha." Our waitress was personable and knowledgeable about the menu items. We tried the sampler platter as an appetizer...with shrimp, dumplings, and chicken skewers. The food and sauces were fresh, tasty, and... More

Am I the only person who finds it ironic that a small, strip-mall based, Hawaiian diner is the BEST (and most reasonably priced) place to get a piece of Blackened or Grilled fish in Gulf Breeze?? Astonishing! Anyway, my Wife and I stopped in for lunch because of all the good reviews on TripAdvisor. The decor is (obviously) Hawaiian style... More

We visited just after 2pm on a Saturday afternoon and the place was very busy. I don't know if the kitchen was running slow or just not enough wait staff for that crowd, but we had to wait a long time just to have someone come to the hostess station to seat us. I have a meant allergy so I... More
