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

Visited after the summer season was over but the place was still packed and reservations are highly recommended. We ate outdoors on a lovely evening. Everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed their meals. I had Hawaiian salad and filet mignon. The filet was the best I ever had, cooked exactly as ordered with a very tasty light sauce. It is...

Had some friends come visit for the day and everyone wanted some good seafood. Ohana blew their minds and then some. The mussels appetizer was out of this world. Crab balls was the other appetizer and it was impressive as well. Main courses included Day Boat Scallop Risotto, Blackened Mahi Mahi, Grilled Scallops and Jumbo Shrimp and a Red Snapper... More

What we love about this place is that they have great food AND take reservations. Not many places at the shore are like this. We went last summer and sat outside. It was a little chilly and we had slow service. This time, service wasn't bad, just a little slow. We sat inside this time, as well. However, the food... More

Went here for birthday celebration, on a Tuesday, a total of 6 of us. Place was extremely crowded and parking difficult to find. We had reservations at 7 and were seated promptly. Menu selection was a bit confusing. Food was a bit slow to come out, waitress was very busy and not always there. It is a byob. Our dinners... More

Recent visit on a Friday night with my husband and parents for my Mom's birthday. The food was spectacular and we will certainly be returning! We sat outside as the wait for indoor seating at 1.5hrs at 7:30... The service was a bit slow and we didn't eat until about 8:40, but again the food was very good and they... 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
