Always at the top of my list around happy hour. Island poke and the beef skewers are flavorful. Easy to find mixed rums drinks. Loud Upbeat atmosphere. Date worthy low lighting.

Jerk chicken bowl was great! Happy hour is 2:00-6:00 with $5 app list and tiki drinks. Pink bikini martini was good too.

Sitting at the table, I felt like a kid again visiting the Tiki room at Disneyland. Had the poki as an appetizer and it was terrific. Got the Mac crusted butterfish with rice and it was amazing! A little out of place on the menu was jalapeño bacon mac&cheese but it was delicious. Look forward to heading back there for another great meal as well as making fun of my buddy who ordered a Lilikoi drink in tall glass. Enjoy!

Hula's Island Grill and Tiki Room is where I found my love of ceviche. That being said, everything here was top notch. The decor and atmosphere were great, the food was amazing! I split the steak and the mahi mahi with my sister. You get to choose the seasoning on the fish which I thought was great. Served with plantains (which I love) rice, and beans. The drinks were also very good and on happy hour are half price. I had the Zombie which was very tasty. The server even let me keep my cup which was very nice of her! If you are in Santa Cruz, make a reservation (IT FILLS UP VERY QUICKLY) and go check this place out.
