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 already on a wait which should tell you something. Make your reservations now!

Went to ohana grill with a group of 12 on the weekend they opened. We arrived a bit early, and they turned on some heat lamps and served us wine outside on their patio while we waited (which was so lovely!). Despite being such a large group, the service was amazing! They were patient and accommodating, kept our glasses full,... More

The best restaurant on the island. Great, consistent food served in a nice laid back atmosphere! I'd give it more stars if I could! Try this place , you won't regret it. Also, very friendly, professional staff

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 took my wife and two teenagers to Ohana Grill on New Year's Eve and we couldn't have had a better experience. The staff was attentive, warm, and eagerly efficient. I started with the chorizo/beer clams and the calamari and they were both absolutely delicious! The clams were so fresh and the sauce was possibly the best I've had in... More

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 in it. On top of that the food is just not that good. To me... More

On the spur of the moment, my husband & I decided to go out to dinner. We were headed one place when my husband " what about Ohana Grill?" I said "let's go!" & we were not sorry we did! We called to make sure we could get in & the young lady -Mary- that answered the phone was so... 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
