5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

The platters are wonderful. Food comes with salad with an awesome dressing and perfect sticky rice! Must give it a try when visiting OC. Will not be disappointed

“LOVE their Huli Huli sauce!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

My husband and I happened upon the Hula Grill by chance while strolling the boardwalk in Ocean City. We love all things Hawaiian, so we gave Hula Grill a try. We are so glad that we did! Their Huli Huli sauce is NOM-NOMerific! I had the Hula Burger (grilled chicken breast dressed in Huli Huli sauce on a bun) and my husband had the Chicken Platter (similar but minus the bun plus add salad and rice).

Service was friendly, quick, and with plenty of aloha. We sat inside and enjoyed the Caribbean music that they had playing while we watched a surfing documentary on the TV. The decor was very south pacific with thatched palm on the walls and easy island colors. Plenty of Hawaiian posters and magazine articles framed on the walls. They offer shaded outdoor seating as well. The umbrellas should help keep the laughing-gulls away.

While the menu isn't extensive, it offers enough variety to accommodate most. Allot of seafood in addition to chicken and pork. Everything is grilled to mouth watering perfection. They even offer bottles of their sauces for sale. We were very happy to bring home a bottle of their Huli Huli sauce. I've already used it on pork chops with delicious results!

We plan to visit Hula Grill often this summer. We've recommended it to all of our friends and can't wait to try out more items from their menu.

“Hidden gem on OC Boardwalk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

We absolutely LOVE the Hula Grill. Things to know before you go; it's small. There are six tables inside and a handful of shared tables outside. They do offer takeout, which is equally good. If you plan to dine in, avoid peak dinner hours. Cash only; no credit cards. The food is fresh, served quickly, portions are generous, and the sauces are incredible. We haven't had a single meal or side we haven't liked, but the standout favorites in our family are Hula chicken, sticky rice with Hula sauce, and the shrimp scampi. Platters are served with rice and salad. Even their salad dressing is incredible. Not your typical boardwalk fare. Even our kids love eating here.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Woohoo! Much better than when I was last here. Food was fresh, healthy and flavorful. Once my husband ate here, he didn't want to go anywhere else. We ate here three times and each meal was as great as the last. Highly recommended.

“Delicious crab cakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

This is a hidden gem on the Ocean city boardwalk. The Hula Grill is a great place to be able to get some seafood right on the boardwalk. Their crab cakes are some of the best we have ever had. Each entree comes with rice and a salad, the dressing on the salad was very good. They allow you to order different things as appetizers if you want to try them. The coconut shrimp were good too. Staff is very friendly and super quick service.
