Humuhumu’s description:

This is the second location of Hula's Island Grill & Tiki Room, the first being down the coast in nearby Monterey. This newer location, which opened in late 2006, goes even further with the tiki theme than the original spot. The owners got assistance with the decor from Bosko, 'Onatiki, Tiki Tony, Polynesiac, Oceanic Arts and Munktiki, and consulted with Forbidden Island's Martin Cate in developing the bar. The space is warm, lined with lauhala matting and filled with carvings, floats and tapa lamps.

In 2009, a related location opened in Phoenix, Hula's Modern Tiki.

Good ceviche! Picked up a cool Hula's tiki shot glass for $6 (which they mostly just use at the bar to put your tab in.)

Excellent neo-tiki place, with outstanding decor, good drinks and surprisingly good food. One of the best neo-tiki locations in Northern California, or, for that matter, anywhere.

They have a great scorpion bowl! An even better mimosa brunch that is never ending on Sundays. The service is great and the burgers are prime. I highly recommend this place. The attention to detail is amazing in this little spot even the shot glasses used are tikis.
