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.

We had played golf in the morning and were looking for a late lunch within walking distance. The clubhouse staff suggested Hula Grill and we were not disappointed. Service was very prompt and we were seated with a beach frontage table which was great. Our lunch orders of a caesar salad and pulled pork with slaw were tasty, good sized and quite filling. Drinks were good especially the house made lemonade. All up around $50 and well worth the visit.

We love the Barefoot Bar at the Hula Grill. The menu is simple, grilled fish ALWAYS good.
Love the casual beach atmosphere, quick service and Hawaiian music.
The price is reasonable for a fish dinner in Hawaii. Love,love,love it!
Very popular so there may be a wait but usually not too long. You can grab a bar table and order from there.

I wish I lived closer. I LOVED LOVED LOVED this place. We had no idea where we were going to eat and ended up saying lets try this. What a great surprise! When walking in everyone said hi and had smile's.The food was fresh and made very well. I don't even like coleslaw and it was delicious. It was a Macadamia coleslaw. I had it was a BLT Flat-bread. Very good. All of our food was wonderful.
We sat outside and it was on the sand. Very relaxing and the view was beautiful.

Hula Grill has always been one of our favorites in Maui. You have a choice of nice upscale dining indoors with an airy open feeling. Or you can choose the barefoot beach sand dining area. We prefer with casual option in the sand. It's close enough to hear the waves crashing on the shore and menu options are fantastic.
We also enjoy the live music they provide during dinner. Always a selection of local favorites or cool relaxing music.
Prices here are fair for beachside dining and the service is first class. We have always enjoyed great fresh fish options. Out kids enjoy the local appetizers and desserts.
Hula Grill is always one of our stops when in Maui!!

I ate here twice, both times at the bar.
Service is excellent and worth the wait, every time.
They even had a Hula dancer with the band :)
