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.

“A bit over priced”

I found this restaurant a bit over priced for what I received, I much preferred MauiFish and Pasta right next door.

“Fantastic View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

Hula Grill is always the first place we dine when we arrive in Maui. Located on the Kaanapali beach strip it has a wonderful view of both Lanai and Molokai and beautiful sunsets. Food is not too expensive and very tasty and the tropical drinks are great!

“A Favorite!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

We've just planned our 16th trip to Maui (going in November for 10 days), and this will include at least two dinners at Hula Grill! Food & Oceanside setting make for a wonderful, romantic evening (we're 60 + and still appreciate this atmosphere!). My husband claims the Ahi Tuna is the best he's ever eaten anywhere. We highly recommend a dinner here!

We ate at hula grill last week on maui and absolutely loved it. The view was so calming and our waiter (Jerry) was friendly, attentive, and extremely knowledgable and helpful when it came to the menu. Thanks for a great meal!

“Nice lunch at a crowded place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014

This place was crawling with people and service was OK but not great. We were on our way back to our place and needed lunch. After finding it in Whaler's Village we had a decent lunch. I had fish tacos and my wife had a salad with greens, asian pear, blue cheese and grilled shrimp. Her salad was good. My fish tacos were underwhelming. They did not grill the tortillas so they were very limp. The fish was fresh (from what I could tell) but not a lot of it and the salsa served on the side was rather tasteless. Would not go out of my way to come here again. Perhaps the problem was that we were not imbibing in the tropical drinks that appeared to be served in abundance. The view from our table was excellent, which made the experience better.
