Located on the three-mile stretch of beach called Kaanapali, in Whalers Village, Hula Grill’s Barefoot Bar is a foodie-lover’s paradise.
Thatched roof umbrellas offer Island-style ambiance. And the eat-local menu items are made from the fresh ingredients of more than 40 local farmers — the restaurant is a three-time winner as Maui’s best supporter of local agriculture — and delicious seafood.
Pupu picks are from the sea: Coconut calamari, crab wontons, shrimp cocktail, and ahi sashimi. Dock-to-dish favorites include fish tacos, fish and chips, a fish sandwich, and firecracker fish. Or from the ranch, try the Hula cheeseburger, or a locally made organic super-food vegan burger.
Don’t miss the live entertainment around sunset, generally from 2 to 5 p.m. and then from 6 to 9 p.m. daily.
