Great lunch and service

I wasn't looking for Hawaiian food in the seafood laden area but I was sure glad I stopped. I recommend the appetizer sampler. It's a great way to sample several dishes and sauces. I highly recommend.

We love Aloha Grill. It is a family owned business and the owner always seems to be there greeting guests and seating them with a friendly smile. Food is great. Tastes just like authentic Hawaiian food with Teriyaki beef and macaroni and broccoli. Service is always good as well. Located in a small strip mall on Hwy 98, so a... More

The portions were average....I don't think the seafood was all that fresh. We went there because a friend suggested it. This is definitely not the best restaurant in Gulf Breeze for seafood. We like Aegean Breeze (1) and The Fishing Hole (2) a whole lot better. There wasn't anything really wrong with it, it just wasn't that great.

My family (party of 9) visited this restaurant 12/16/15 for dinner. The food was excellent, as usual. My husband and I had been here before but the rest of the family had not. Everyone raved about it! They can't wait to visit again. Joe was our wonderful server. This has now become one of my favorite restaurants ever! Oh, save... More

Have eaten here several times and although it is in a difficult to find spot, it is worth the search. Family owned and run business where you feel important to the entire staff during your visit. Have not had a bad thing there yet. I don't expect to.

Really enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere and music as well as the good food! The waiter was very helpful and the food was different from most anything else you can get in this area.

We go to this restaurant quite often, for just the two of us or to take a group of our children and grandchildren. It is always a favorite choice because the food is consistently good, the prices are attractive, and the staff friendly. I usually get a rice bowl with the Mauna Kea sauce and love it. Try it and...

Large variety of unique toppings allowing one to make the perfect salad...if you don't like it, remember; you built it!

My family and I love Papa Nalu's. The owners are so friendly and warm and always make sure everything is up to par. Any of the rice bowls are incredible, particularly the fish. And don't get me started on the sauces... Anything you try, you'll like.

This is our second visit to this little gem that is located away from the touristy arts of pensacola. The ribs (hala Kahiki) were outstanding- melt in your mouth tender and very flavorful. My husband had the rice bowl with Mahi Mahi, and that was just so so. It was literally 4 small pieces of blackened Mahi Mahi on top... More
