Atmosphere: feels like a theme park restaurant....very much a "hula" feel. Food: just ok. Fairly large selection of burger choices with different toppings. Burger I ordered didn't exactly match what I thought it would be from the menu description. Salads and tacos also available. Friendly, efficient service.

Our son and his family suggested this restaurant - and they were right. It is a great place with good prices, helpful staff personnel and great food. Worth a try if you're in the area.

We had a large group and need to grab a quick bite. Most people from the group enjoyed their burgers. I enjoyed my Cobb salad. Service was solid. I guess this small chain is better than a ruby Tuesday or Applebee's.

Decided to try the burgers and wasn't very impressed. The veggie burger was not very good and overpriced. The chicken wrap was mostly lettuce and would have done better ordering a salad. Not worth the money, and wish I would have gone elsewhere.

Dropped in for lunch. Quickly seated and provided drinks and menus. Decided on a Hula Burger (Good choice) with fries. It comes with mushrooms (lots) and cheese. It was all great. Nothing like a good hamburger, cooked to perfection. Service was fast despite the place being very busy. My wife had a quesadilla...and some of my fries! Prices were very... More

We happened onto this place but so glad. The wait staff was very helpful in our choosing (hard time between a couple of options). Healthy food was delicious and the there was not waiting for a table. Easy to locate, but a bit tricky to park and get inside once you see it on the corner of the intersection. Will... More

This is a fun place to go for lunch. It is a surfer sports kind of place with a very nice feel to it. The food has been very good and we have a lot of fun there.

This was a good place to bring a friend or family. Atmosphere was nice and hospitable. The servers were great! Happy Hour menu was reasonable and gave a great time of 4pm-7pm. Layed back atmosphere and Happy Hour was in the bar. We ordered the Buffalo Wings for an appetizer which were nice and spicy. And I tried the Makaha... More
