We had great sunset dinner on the beach. Ahi tuna was delicious! If I come back here again, I will have dinner there. Love it. Food was a little bit pricy but try the sauce with bread. It was addicted!

I have been to this restaurant every time I go to Maui. It's casual, the Mai Tai's are great and the staff are very friendly. It's along the ocean, so the view is great!

We had lunch at the bar with our toes in the sand. Coconut shrimp appetizer is really good but you only get 3. The blackened fish tacos were perfect. The lemonade is delicious!

While not directly on the beach (across the access sidewalk), some of the outdoor seating is on the sand and under umbrellas. The food and service was very good. A little pricey, but worth it for a nice meal with the family.

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.
