    Great, casual restaurant in Kaanapali. There are 2 dining areas, one in the "bar," where they actually have tables in the sand under an awning so you can kick off your shoes and really enjoy, and another that is in a bit more of a proper dining area. Go for the feet in the sand, its amazing. Good for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

    A beachside setting for a great restaurant. There is an early bird special which is quite good.

    The BEST mai tais in Maui can be found here. $9 for mai tais with freshly squeezed fruit. Most places use a mix, but this is the real deal. Come for happy hour from 3-5pm and get $2 off mai tais. Their crab and mac nut wontons are delicious if you're craving a small bite. Nice lanai seating with a view of the ocean.

    The view and atmosphere at the hula grill is amazing. The bread with the irreplaceable chili sauce is also great. The food is not the best, but the HULA PIE desert is outstanding. They are huge, so I suggest sharing one piece for a couple people. Delicious delicious though. Love hula grill and its always nice to take a walk down the beach or around the shopping center before or after dinner.

    Live local music, good fresh seafoods, and beautiful views of the sunset along Molokai, combine to make this a great place to while an evening away. In the midst of highly commercialized Whalers Village, it's still worth the trip.

    We opted for the dining room as the wait for the bar (sitting on the sand) was too long this time). We still had a table with a great view of the water. Service was excellent, fish preparations were interesting and tasty. Everything was fresh and locally sourced where possible-- Yum!

    We had a couple great meals here. They make some great drinks here; I had the Mai Tai and it was strong and flavorful. The food was quite good as well. I had the fish special for the night: mahi, pan seared with brown butter and capers. Very good. The view here is very nice of course, since you are literally steps from Kaanapali Beach.

    Pretty good...over-rated, though.

    The food is good here, but the Hula Pie is amazing! I would recommend that to anybody visiting the island.

    A wonderful place for lunch or dinner. Sister restaurant to Duke's, Kimo's in Lahaina, and Keilani across the way. Sand area is interesting.

    Great place for Lunch, Pupu's or Dinner. Great Bar or sit at a table with your feet in the Sand. Located in Whalers Village at Kaanapali

    Hula Grill is a lot of fun. It is right on the Kaanapali Beach walk. The outdoor portion requires no shoes, as the tables and umbrellas are right in the sand. If you are there around sunset you can watch the Sheraton diving ceremony right from the Hula Grill. A great hamburger is served here at this restaurant. Reservations are required at sunset in the busy winter season.

    We love to have lunch here during happy hour. The food is good and reasonable priced, but we mostly come for the music. We’ve seen some great local entertainment here.

    Life is good when you can be eating good food, with your toes in the sand, while being entertained with live music and the world's best sunset.

    When on Maui, Ka'anapali Beach. A must is the Hula Grill. Great food! Great service. And a awesome view of the sunset.

    Perfect location on Kaanapali Beach! I recommend sitting outside where you can put your feet in the sand, listen to the band, and sip an excellent strawberry banana smoothie or the drink of your choice. They have excellent cheeseburgers too.

    Great location right on the beach. You can even put your toes in the sand while you dine in the bar! The menu is similar to the Hula Grill in Waikiki, which is not a bad thing because both locations offer fresh fish and locally grown ingredients. Very friendly staff and great live music. All around a great dining experience.

    This is one of those restaurants where you look forward to even the bread they bring out before you order. The food's great, and the view is unbeatable. Watch the sunset here as musicians strum ukeleles or just go to the bar for a drink.
