Great mix of Hawaiian and other island flavors. The pork jerk, pinapple rice, plantains and Jonnycakes were a delight. We had mac and cheese and coconut shrimp as starters. I could have had just the mac and cheese and been happy it was that good. We did not have anything from the bar, to early, but they keep refilling our sodas.

Great cocktails, particularly the passion fruit Margaritas! Good garlic fries but most of the food is average at best. Service is friendly particularly at the bar.

I really wanted to love this place- How much fun could a Hawaiian themed restaurant done right be? It could be amazing- this was going through the motions at best- food was average for all 5 of our meals- yes there is Hawaii themed stuff on the walls- but they could have and should have done much more- music, plates, props- it's like they had a cool theme when they opened- then they forgot- how about giving all drinks in tiki cups etc

We enjoyed a great happy hour at Hula's. I had a Zombie which was a rum, passionfruit, pineapple drink. Good, but really strong. My partner had the blood orange martini which was also good and strong. We ordered the sweet potato fries, beef skewers, and regular fries. All were very tasty. This was a nice atmosphere and unusual food. We loved it.
