This was our second visit to Ohana Grill. We love it. Service was great. Food is fantastic. Very fresh. Portions are perfect for myself and my daughter. Husband prefers bigger portions but still enjoys going here. Lots to choose from. Highly recommended.

Overpriced, overrated, over pretentious. Hawaiian salad was so small and sparse missing the essential ingredients. Not worth 12.00..The food was big on presentation and nothing else..Could tell right away it wasn't going to be a great restaurant when the bread came out..poor quality grocery store sliced french bread..soft...and the cheese sticks from a box like they sell at CostCo..My grilled...

My wife and I had fantastic meal at Ohana Grill. We were greeted warmly upon check in, and seated promptly. The restaurant is nicely decorated. The sound level was very good. We could hear each other. The food was amazing. We started with thinly sliced tuna carpaccio. Delicious! I had steamed clams in white wine sauce and my wife has... More

We've been coming to Ocean Beach for years and never thought to try this restaurant. A friend recommended it last year so we tried it. It was great so we made it a must for this year. Once again it did not disappoint. The service was fantastic. The food was great. Very flavorful. The colossal shrimp were more than colossal... More

I fell in love with the clam chowder. Staff is accommodating. BYOB but then you know what you get :( You can make reservations. The food was very good. I would go back for sure.

Small BYOB beachside restaurant with a flair for fresh seafood with an Asian influence... Thai spring rolls, civeche', Brazilian lobster tail and grilled Hawaiian sea bass were all fresh, flavorful, great dishes. Chocolate molten lava cake was sinful...... We sat near the open kitchen and loved it... very busy, noisy and fun watching the hustle of wait staff and chefs....... More

Ohana Grill is a must when we are in Lavallette- good service, relaxing atmosphere and great food. Try to make reservations a few days in advance, we missed out recently because we only called a day in advance.

Seated immediately for a late weekday dinner. Had spring rolls (tasty) and chicken satay (lacked flavor) for appetizers. For dinner, we ordered the shrimp and scallops (excellent), halibut (dry and over cooked), lobster ravioli (fair).

The service was great and the food was even better. The crab balls we're delicious and most definitely order the lobster and crab stuffed mahi... It's worth it!

My girlfriend and I were looking for something a little more elegant this time around. The service was great food was also delicious. Stuffed Mahi Mahi awesome. Seafood risotto great. BYOB makes it even better. Enjoy!!!

The Ohana Grill offers the finest seafood cooked to perfection with inviting dishes to tantalize you taste buds. We offer steak, pork, and chicken dishes for those who aren't seafood eaters. We have tried to design a menu with something for everyone without being overwhelming. We hope your Ohana will join ours soon!! Mahalo
