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.

“Very busy restaurant”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

This was our first meal in Maui. We walked over at about 9pm and had to wait for about 45 minutes for a table. We finally got a seat in the sand right by the band. Perfect spot for us. Our server, Sara, was very attentive with drinks, appies and food. We enjoyed everything we ordered. The only reason we didn't eat here again is because there was always a wait, it is a very popular place.

“Beach Bliss”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Spectacular sunset view complimented a variety of fish dinners, each with a unique cooking style. The servers (we went there three times) were well versed in the differences of taste and presentation of each offering.

“Great fish, great service”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

The barefoot bar offers a casual experience and live music. The firecracker fish is a must and the experience was made exceptional by our server, Sasha.

“Great Experience”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

We totally enjoyed our lunch experience at the Hula Grill. We ate our meal in the bar area under the palapas The location is fantastic, right on the beach, there was a guitar player serenading us during our meal. The food was very good, and quite reasonable. If you check the brochures around town you will find some coupons, we got a free Large macadamia nut, fudge brownie to share with one of these coupons. Awesome!! Would definitely go back.

“go to happy hour”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

They have a great open air, beachside happy hour with live music starting at 3 PM, very relaxing! There are drink specials and the view is worth taking an hour to enjoy. The music varies from day to day.
