A California twist on an island classic, serving great food and cool cocktails, while creating a sense of community. Hula’s Island Grill is a throwback to the popular tiki restaurants and bars of the ‘50’s & 60’s. The creation of the Delaney brothers, the original location in Monterey opened in 1998, followed by Hula’s Santa Cruz in 2006. Upon entering, you are greeted by the island décor, eclectic music, and a smiling staff. The vibe is California casual. The atmosphere is always happy. Come be surrounded by hipsters, oldsters, youngsters, and everyone in between. You can enjoy a tropical cocktail, a quick bite, or a full dinner, while being taken care of by the best staff in the ‘biz. Our menu has something for everyone, and is a fusion of island, and American flavors. Hula’s mission is to create a community gathering spot for local residents, as well as that special place to invoke great memories, for diners from shores afar. Try us once, you’ll be hooked!
