Wanted a good seafood restaurant and they had a good rating on Yelp and TA. We did not have reservations and it was Pro Bowl w/e, but we got a nice ocean side table after a forty minute wait which included a few Pina Coladas or was it MaiTais? Fish was done very well and service was top notch... read more

Situated above the iconic Dukes beachfront bar at the Outrigger hotel.The food was lovely with the style being island fusion.Best of all was our table on the lovely lanai where we were offered the BEST view of the fantastic sunset.After dark the lanterns are lit....what a sight..will definitely return.

We've been to the Hula Grill about a half-dozen times, and have always had a great experience. Last night was no exception. We tend to make reservations for close to sunset to enjoy the scenery and the music from Duke's downstairs. Try to get a table on the rail outside if you want to enjoy the people-watching and the beach... More

Went here on a Saturday evening and was able to get seated immediately because we didn't want to wait for the main dining room. Service was great, our fish dishes tasty, just a bit noisy, but we were mingling with a Pro Bowl crowd that evening.

This came recommended us and so we stopped for lunch and enjoyed tasty fries with a pulled pork sandwich and grilled chicken on focaccia bread. The view and service were the bright stars here, but the food was very satisfying and I am glad we tried it. I think the dinner menu may have more options so we will likely... More

We had breakfast here on our first day in Hawaii and it was so good we went again on our last. The setting is lovely over looking the beach, the staff are very friendly, the food is delicious and its very reasonable.

We had a quick breakfast, as well as a dinner, at this place. Both times the service was prompt and very attentive. Although it was a bit pricey (as in many dining places in Waikiki), the food was very good too. If you sit on a balcony, you get a pretty nice view of the Waikiki beach portion.

We wanted an early dinner & went to the Hula Grill. Unfortunately, they has happy hour at the bar & dinner started at 4.45. We made reservations & was asked if we were celebrating an occasion. My birthday just passed but my girlfriend said "yes, his birthday". We walked around & returned for dinner. We were served fresh bread to... More

This restaurant opens for early dinner and offers a special menu that allows you to try a good selection of their specialties. If you arrive too late for this special I recommend the chef's fish selection, since you get to taste two different fish and styles of cooking. Between the Hawaiian music downstairs, the beautiful sunset and the food, you... More
