Delicious vegetable sides

Hula Grill is one of 14 TS restaurants (including Duke's downstairs.) We found the food at Hula to be prepared well and the service excellent. Dinner started with a basket of bread to dip in olive oil or "Hawaiian Water" which is a sweet spicy sauce. We had seven entrees and three mixed drinks... read more

We went to Hula Grill on a Sunday night after we attempted to go to Dukes. There was a 90 minute wait at Dukes and the hostess suggested we go upstairs to Hula Grill. The wait time there was only 40 minutes and we got a nice table in the bar while we waited for our table. What a great... More

The place was nice. If you get an ocean view while dining, you get to see the beach activities going in. There was a live bank playing on the beach when we had dinner there. Food was good.

Must be new management or chef. This long time exceptional restaurant's food is sorely lacking at breakfast and happy hour. The previous chef provided amazing discounted happy hour pupu's which enticed guests to stay for a delicious dinner. Happy hour adult beverages are still great but don't expect exceptional pupu's. Breakfast has definitely changed. Scrambled eggs taste like powdered egg.... More

While waiting for friends to celebrate a birthday I had time for a cocktail at the pleasant Plantation Bar. It was really busy on a Friday night. The bartender was very friendly and she made made a top notch Manhattan. Our table waiter John was super nice and very good at pacing our dinner. We loved the Poke Tacos and... More

This is one of the best meals we've ever eaten. We liked it so much, we came back for our last meal in Hawaii. . For both our food, we paid over $100 per meal, but it was worth it. Obviously, because we came twice, though we are typically budget travelers.

My family really enjoyed the view, ambience, service and food at the Hula Grille. We made reservations for 6:15 pm and asked for seating on the balcony with a view of the beach and Diamond Head. Great to watch the sunset and lit up tiki torches in the evening. The restaurant does offer a Chef's Tasting Menu for $28.75 if... More
