Hula Grill

Hula Grill is the best restaurant in the Whalers Village shopping center in the middle of Kaanapali Beach.  In my opinion, it is also Maui’s “most Maui-est” restaurant.  By that I mean, when you are dining at Hula Grill, the food, setting, view, and ambiance, all make you really feel like you are getting the full Maui experience.  Hula Grill has a casual section on sand called the “Barefoot Bar” (lunch and dinner) and a fine-dining more expensive section called the “Dining Room” (dinner only, but sometimes open for overflow seating at lunch).  Phone 808-667-6636.

Hula Grill menu includes fresh fish and other choices with innovative preparations.  The location is great for people-watching, as the tourists walk by on the Kaanapali Beach sidewalk.  Tables are open-air with beautiful views of the ocean, especially at sunset.  Prices are lower, and food is more casual, in the Barefoot Bar part of the restaurant, which is on a sandy floor.  Reservations are needed at dinner in the Dining Room section, which has more upscale food.

See below for some specific Hula Grill menu items as well as photos and video.

This is one of Maui’s most popular restaurants, and one of the longest-running, having been here since 1994.    Hula Grill on Urbanspoon
