Excellent Food, Service SLOW

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... read 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.

We had different types of bowls. They were all fantastic! Their meals are different than the typical seafood or beach food!

The food here is good, (maybe on the level of an L&L BBQ) but not great. And in my opinion they have taken some liberties with traditional Hawaiian food. The musubis, for example, are more like sushi than a traditional musubi you will find in the Islands. Also, I feel that for what you are ordering the meals are a... More

I take my grandkids here at least once a month! They grew up in Hawaii and the tuna poke and musubi remind them of home. I love the the variety of bowl and plate options. Will keep coming back!

This kitchen produces wonderful dishes at a fair price. Modest surroundings.....the salads are fresh and crisp. The blackened mahi wraps are to die for.

There is nothing about this place that stand out. Very small amount of fish or meat over brown or white rice. There is nothing special about the food. it more like Japanese food in cheap dishes.

Great eateries in Gulf Breeze are hard to come by! We have been a couple of times. Each time the service is great. The facility is clean and well maintained. Plenty of parking. The food is always fresh and generous. Try their fun drinks. We get the non alcoholic drinks and always enjoy them. The teriyaki bowls are popular, and... More
