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

The Terriyaki Burger is one of the specials here only served on Saturdays. This burger was so good, i thought my eyes were going to roll back into my head. It was simply amazing! Fresh, quality, simple ingredients...melt in your mouth. You have to try this burger! Service was excellent!

This shrimp (seared in butter) may have been the most delicious shrimp we've ever had! It's served with Aloha Grill's signature Mauna Kea sauce on the side. Other sauces include Hala Kahiki (pineapple), Huli Huli (Hawaiian barbecue -- & my personal favorite), and Aloha Teriyaki. The white rice is wonderfully sticky, macaroni salad is good, and the Aloha fries are... More

The macaroni salad is worth the trip all by itself. Takeout service is great, kudos to everyone at Papa Nalu. Wish you were open on Sunday.
