This local place is known for quality food at a very fair price. Their menu offers a number of local favorites and some seasonal specials. They are known for their sticky rice and seafood dishes. Also they make and sell their own line of marinades and sauces. Again many of which are local favorites. Definitely a great place to grab... More

If you're tired of eating pizza on the boards, this is a great alternative. I always look forward to when the Hula Grill opens in the spring and summer months--my favorite is the grilled ahi plate with sticky rice and pineapple salsa. It's a little pricey but I can always get two meals out of it. The owners used to... More

Everything is fresh. Love their homemade Huli Sauce and Salad dressing. The firecracker shrimp are the best (similar to banfg bang shrimp from Outback) but a lot better!

Been going to the Hula Grill for years and in the last two years they have made their portions smaller. Not happy with that so we decided not to visit this establishment anymore after this last trip.

The bad reviews are correct. It's a little hole-in-wall in a back corner of the boardwalk and the outdoor seating was not great. But, we had the platters and loved them. The sticky rice was awesome and so was the salad. I could have made a meal out of them. Pulled pork was not what I expected and took a... More

I've heard great reviews on this restaurant located on the boardwalk. I tried the coconut shrimp and it arrived hot and crispy. All platters come with rice and a salad with house dressing. They could put more dressing on the salad but you can request additional. My son had the mahi and it was delicious. The prices are reasonable and... More

Cash only. grilled tuna and coconut shrimp were great. In house salad dressing really good. Expensive but worth it. Sit outside. It's actually more peaceful that way.

On a blazingly hot day, had the delicious, large house salad with their signature dressing (somehow both light and flavorful) and tons of sweet onions and cucumbers over the greens. Indoor seating is limited but fortunately the tables outside have big umbrellas to shade from the intense sun.
