Nice variety of hamburgers including a teriyaki one with pineapple. Decor is 'surf-city' but the clientele is what you'd expect at an open air mall that also houses a Home Depot and Costco. Upbeat place, indoor or outdoor tables, order at the counter.

The hotel recommend this place. The girl working recommended either the fish sand which or a burger.. Both were large,but verygood. The regular fries are excellent. Sweet potato fries were under cooked and soggy. The onion ring are just regular frozen rings. Service was good

Kahuna Grill obviously does not care who they hire, I have given them several chances and won't return. Employees would rather be socializing, they don't care about the customers, and don't pay attention to order detail. Food is never served correctly the 1st time, always...More
