Description: 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.

The location can't be beat but the food is very average and over priced. As a local we don't frequent Hula Grill.

Too expensive for the quality and portion size. I went with myself and my 5 year old. I had one beer. A child's dinner, an entree and we split a plate of potstickers (3) for an appetizer. Before tip...$78 bucks. The food was so so. Not impressed. I think it is a well-marketed restaurant that doesn't live up to it's hype.

We had a late afternoon lunch/dinner in Nov 2012. Comfortable chairs (if you are sitting in the sand section of the patio) and very pleasant atmosphere. Good shade that other restaurants lack in the patio. The service was attentive and not pushy. The food that we ordered was a bit of a hit and miss. I ordered the the Gado - Gado salad that was disappointing, skip it. My wife ordered the hamburger and liked it, sister ordered a chinese chopped chicken and liked it. This all was on the lunch menu. They validate 3 hour parking.

I thought the meal was good but the quality is not there for the price point. It's a bit overpriced. But you can't beat the location. And the size of tge establishment is big enough that there's no problem getting a table.
