My first birthday off the mainland went very well, and a good meal at Hula Grill went a long way to making that happen. For starters, we were treated to an unexpected fireworks show while enjoying a cocktail waiting for our table. Always fun to get a fireworks show for your day :)
Our meal was simple, one sample platter for starters for the group to share and everyone ordered a fish for an entree. The sampler included crab cakes, imu ribs and coconut shrimp. It all tasted great and was perfect for sharing.
Hula Grill is a very nice restaurant, though you have to know what you are getting (majority of diners are tourists). The value is not as good as it could be, but you're paying for beach front property and tasty fresh fish. Sometimes it's worth paying up for a good time while on the road, something I've learned first hand through my travels.
