My wife and just loved the food at Hula Grill with its tasty well prepared food - a perfect meal with its glorious views of the ocean. It can get much better than this! We had the fish special (which was Ono and Mahi Mahi) and also the Crab Topped Macadamia Nut crusted Mahi Mahi. Both were delicious, the Macadamia... More

This is a nice place to dine, great staff, wonderful food and the view can't be beat. Live music in the evening! Reservations are encouraged but we got a table right away (lucked out). I was able to add a small lobster tail to my dinner for $13.

First night ordered mahi-mahi, it came out raw. Alerted the server she sent it back to the kitchen. Again it came back uncooked. This time the manager came over and sent it back. Finally half hour later the original fish was cooked properly. The cooks obviously do not care about the product being served. Went back Thanksgiving day, the turkey... More

My wife and I had the Early Bird Chef's Tasting Menu for $27 each. It included a very small salad, choice of four small entrees and choice of either a small pineapple upsidedown cake or ice cream brownie for dessert. My Kale salad tasted good but was not cut into small pieces. The bowl was shaped like a volcano, having... More

The Aloha Hour is great here! We got food and drinks at a great price with a gorgeous view of the water and live music! You can park in Whaler's village and get your parking validated! The service was great and then we walked around the mall area!

We were here for dinner. The food was good but unfortunately, whilst we knew it was busy, it took ages for the drinks to come and then even longer for the food to come. No apologies, the tables are incredibly close, but when the food came it was good and relatively inexpensive.

On the water's edge on Kaanapali Beach, Hula Grill offers a stunning view of the Pacific and of the islands of Lanai and Molokai that has to be seen to be believed. From this distinctly Hawaiian vantage point, you are invited to join us as we celebrate the hospitality, culture and cuisine of the islands. Dinner is served in our open-air dining room where you can relax in the ambiance of a plantation era beach house while enjoying renown chef Peter Merriman's Hawaii regional seafood that isn't only a favorite of vacationers, but locals, too. Hawaiian fresh fish and locally grown produce are combined to create amazing menu offerings that are as colorful as they are flavorful. Fiery sunsets are served up daily along with live Hawaiian entertainment.
Our Barefoot Bar offers a more casual menu serving both lunch and dinner under authentic thatch roof umbrellas and a sand floor where you can sink your toes in. The Barefoot Bar is seated on a walk-in basis only.
