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.

Great place for a quick healthy dinner on the boardwalk. Food is consistently good and I like the location off. Side

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.

Food is excellent and if you need a change from the mostly fried food and pizza on the boardwalk this is the place to go

The Hula Grill has become our 'First Night Dinner' whenever we visit the shore. The food is great and prepared quickly; yes the tables are a little cramped and you have to be ready to 'lurk' for a table (and be lurked at) but it is worth it. The specials are always interesting, my wife had a mango tilapia and... More

We went here on a Monday night in the summer. This restaurant is located in a small food court type setting on the OC boardwalk. Very crowded but my husband and I were able to get a seat just as another table was leaving. You have to go into the small restaurant area to order and then a server brings... More
