We stopped here looking for an alternative to the fatty, fried foods that we'd been eating too much of on vacation. This place was perfect!! We had teriyaki rice bowls - rice, veggies and meat of your choice with a sauce to fit your tastes (I like sweet over spicy). Everything was cooked perfectly and the service was quick and... More

I really enjoy the food here. It's unique for the area, and fairly price. The service is usually slow, the side salads are completely lackluster, and it's not in an exciting atmosphere or building. The standout is definitely the food. I think they have great BBQ, wraps, and steaks.

We eat here so often because the food is wonderful and reasonably priced. Their blackened grouper with slaw is the best I have ever had. Teriyaki chicken and steak with sweat potato fries are incredible. Don't forget to ask for extra Muana Kea Sauce. You won't be disappointed.

She had the pineapple chicken bowl and I had the shrimp wrap. I can't remember the names, but they were both delicious! I also got an order of the Hawaiian sweet bread with a spicy pineapple sauce that was very tasty. It's a little hole in the wall place, but don't let that fool you. The food is amazing and... More

We were looking for something different and laid back so we went to the Aloha Grill. The Staff was super friendly. We started out with the Musubi which is like a spam sushi roll. It didn't appeal to me that much. Then we waited almost forty minutes for our meals. I had the Kealoha plate and wow it was a... More

We drove here from Ft Walton on the recommendation of my sister's friend who is Hawaiian. While we are not Hawaiian ourselves, my sister lived in Hawaii for a time and I am active in the Polynesian community where I live so we have both have had a fair share of Hawaiian food in our lives. The Papa Nalu Aloha... More

Tired of seafood on a recent beach trip, I saw this was ranked #1 and decided to try it. If you don't know where it is, it can be hard to find. It's in a strip mall on US 98 in Gulf Breeze, past the Pensacola Beach turn off. It was worth looking for. If you are looking for authentic... More

Great food, great people and a very reasonable price. A surprising find in a small strip mall near the Tiger Point Wal-Mart. They recently expanded and added several more tables for additional seating. The owners are very nice and take an interest in your experience

The restaurant itself is plain, diner-like, but that's where plain ends. With Hawaiian music playing and posters of Hawaiian scenes, it starts to relax you. The menu had many items I would have liked. I chose Kealoha (bowl size $7.99). The grilled teriyaki steak and pineapple chicken were very tender. It was served in a bowl over a choice of... More
