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.

I loved being able to come off the beach with 4 teenager girls and sit in a nice restaurant, with our feet still in the sand!
The menu choice was excellent for 4 teenage girls and for myself. The causual atmosphere, while still being outside, in a nice restaurant.
A few days later, the 4 adults went back for a drink after the Hula show at Whaler's Village. Not only was the Hula show great (and free) the adults had a very nice time at the Barfoot bar. William the bartender is one of the best I have seen on Maui.

While we have eaten at the Hula Grill many times over the years and have always been pleased with the meals, the menu changes, and this was one of the best lunches I have ever had. Our waitress, Dana, recommended the Firecracker Fish which was made with Moon Fish. It was prepared in their wood fired oven and presented with a lovely sauce, white and brown rice on the side as well as a couple of fresh made corn tortillas and black bean and avocado salsa. My husband had the Kula Pork and pineapple wood fired pizza. It was very good as I had a little taste, but didn't hold a candle to my fish. Before we have to leave this paradise, we will go back to the Hula Grill, and I will likely have this wonderful meal again! And our service was excellent!
