Hulas Island Grill
Welcome to Hula's Island Grill and Tiki Room- an intimate local's restaurant offering an amazing dining experience in a tropical setting. Voted Best New Restaurant in 1998, we have a passion for fun, friendly, enthusiastic service, the freshest fish, great steaks, seafood, and an overall menu which includes a hint of Asian, a dash of Latin and a touch of Caribbean, all with Hawaiian inspiration. Ours is an innovative approach that will take you on a culinary adventure and tantalize your senses. We are family owned and operated, the creation of brothers Chris and Craig Delaney of New York City and Maui. A recent survey found that 93 percent of the diners at Hula's are residents of the immediate area; Carmel, Pebble Beach, Pacific Grove and Monterey; and that the majority of those persons visit at least once a month. We welcome you to join us on this quick tour of our website and afterwards in person at our home and find out why our unique menu items and gracious hospitality are becoming world renowned.
We tried this place twice. The first time (afternoon) the service was fine but the food was very bland. The second time (afternoon) the service was slow and the glassware dirty. We asked for a different glass of water and still there were little floating bits that looked like breadcrumbs. EWW! We left never to return!
What a terrific surprise. Hula's came highly recommended, and with good reason. from the moment we walked in; the music, the funky-authentic decor, the happy faces of the staff and customers. be ready to wait, this place seems to be the spot for locals and visitors alike, but they had a great bar, with a lot of fun specialty drinks. The service is very warm, like we were old friends visiting - nice touch. But most of all the food is creative and delicious, even for vegetarians. A must go.
The perfect place to end a day of surfing! The ambiance is unbeatable with a continuously playing surf movie for any lul in conversation to the antique and retro decorations that adorn every wall. While the setting is important, equally important is the cuisine. Or for the plain surfer, GRUB! From classic fish taco's to the catch of the day, your taste buds are sure to be satisfied with both food and drink! If no seats are available when you arrive which can be the case due to the popularity of this restraunt, there is a small bar for pre-dinner drinks which could consist of a nice wine or a refreshing Pacifico beer that is sure to start your experience off right! Whether you're a local who dines there weekly or you're a tourist passing through towards Carmel, you're sure to either continue your love affair or begin one at Hula's!
