Had an amazing dinner here tonight. The rib eye was perfectly cooked and the mussels were hands down the best I have ever had. The seafood curry dish had just enough spice. I can not say enough about the food here. Not in season and...More

My husband (a chef) and adult children are seafood lovers and go crazy for Ohana Grill! They love the calamari and often do take out and walk home with a delicious meal :)

Small byob with quality food. Only complaint is the menu doesn't change much so if you go often, the selection is limited. Nice ambience, decent service and good food - definitely a cut above most of the beach restaurants.

I wish this place was better. The food is not consistent and it's very salty. They have an open kitchen and I don't think they have a good ventilation system so the place feels like the air is smoky with a layer of grease floating...More

The Ohana Grill offers the finest seafood cooked to perfection with inviting dishes to tantalize you taste buds. We offer steak, pork, and chicken dishes for those who aren't seafood eaters. We have tried to design a menu with something for everyone without being overwhelming. We hope your Ohana will join ours soon!! Mahalo
