We met up here for a dear friend's birthday celebration after last year's was shut down due to the pandemic. What a wonderful experience! The food was excellent, the servings huge, the drinks tasty, the atmosphere warm and fun, and the service exceptional.

I really wanted it be great but not so much. Service was very slow and poor. Went on a Thursday for lunch. The good - chips, fresh flour tortillas and the mahi mahi tacos. The bad- service, watery queso, coconut shrimp were burnt. No coconut...flavor or shrimp flavor because they were so over cooked. We weren’t crazy about the loaded fries - they are the very thick cut potatoes. Water and even the soda has very strong chlorine taste.More

There is not enough good to say about Hula Hut management of our very special private party. Bryan Jones could not have been more helpful. Developed a private food menu and private drink menu. The food was beyond good and the service was exceptional. The...group was relaxed, and laughter was constant. I highly recommend considering Hula Hut for your casual dinner and your private party. They kept us safe and with a view of the water it couldn't have been better. Thank you Bryan and your team! Beautiful job!!!!More

We came with two other couples who had already preplanned the visit. The food remains the same to me. It reminds me of prepared food that is simply warmed up and served. It is just not that appetizing. For the life of me, I do...not see what people see in it. The setting is great and there is much potential but first comes the food. However, in saying this, they are still number one in Little Elm. I am not impressed and sadly will not return.More

We went by this restaurant while we were visiting the area. Hostess wasn’t great but the manager was awesome . We told him it was our first time and he explained to us the full layout of this large restaurant which had rooms and outside...patio. Stopped by our table twice to check on us . The complimentary chips are salty and good & the salsa even better . Hubby had the Hula burger made with Waygu beef , he loved it . I had the Thai fajitas , delish. Alcohol Drinks were ok , but with great food like that I didn’t even care . We will definitely returnMore

After an August 2020 lunch at Hula Hut Little Elm, I commented to my family that we had waited too long to return. Three of us shared superbly delicious food - a stuffed avocado and the Huli Huli Luau Platter, which is a half rack...of B.B.Q. baby back ribs, four nachos with grilled chicken, two B.B.Q. chicken tacos, four chicken flautas, chopped salad, papas asadas & chile con queso - enough to serve four, although we left nothing behind. My single complaint: The salad is too small for three people. Food presentation was beautiful, worthy of the restaurant's knock-out atmosphere. The entire staff was helpful and friendly. Distancing, masking, and clean-ups followed Covid-19 guidelines comfortably and unobtrusively for the customers. We won't wait so long again!More

Used to enjoy the place as food is decent and atmosphere is great. However, the service lately has been terrible along with the horrendous and disrespectful treatment I have experienced by Sylia. Such attitude is inexcusable in the service industry and can ruin a reputation.

Helo, The Hula Hut is not dog friendly, however the restaurant next door The Tap House, does allow dogs in the outside dinning area. Food is okay, but does not have the same feel of Hula Hut.
