North Shore Kula Grille (fka Kula Grille at Turtle Bay)

The ancient Hawaiians divided their land into three sections: Mauka, kula and makai – or mountains, midland and the sea – known as ahupua ‘a. It is the kula lands, primarily used for agriculture, that now serve as the inspiration for the North Shore Kula Grille.

Welcome to a place where farm-to-table thinking is behind every ingredient on our menu. Where fresh means seasonal produce picked just a few minutes away; where seafood is sourced daily from local waters; and where premium meats and poultry are raised with the utmost care on small-scale Hawaii farms and ranches.

At the North Shore Kula Grille you can explore the flavors of our islands as they have been enjoyed for centuries – naturally, with organic artisan farming and harvesting practices, showcasing the rich agricultural history of Hawaii and the North Shore in every dish.

"Out of seven nights staying at Turtle Bay Resort, wife and I had dinner at Kula Grille. Enjoyed every time. Hostess Jeannie and server Mario helped us frequently. Great food, service attentive yet relaxed. Perfect."

"Exactly the mediocre resort restaurant you're expecting. Boring menu, bland dishes and disinterested wait staff. Go to Lei Lei's or spend a little extra on Pa'akai. Frankly, even the pool bar runs circles around the Kula Grill."

"We planned on ordering from the menu but when we arrived we saw they also had a dinner buffet option. It was well priced and looked great so we went for it. I'm glad we did. At $35 it was a fantastic value for dinner on the North Shore."

"Our server tried to encourage us to get the breakfast buffet, saying it was cheaper. That may be but we wanted specific items from the menu. She kept hanging onto my husband's menu while he was still ordering. What gives? And interesting that I made my own mimosa. Sure, I got more to drink but I didn't expect this for the price ($10). And why did it take so long to bring out?"

"I booked a reservation for Thanksgiving buffet for $46.95 per person, but upon arrival at Restaurant I was told that it would cost $69.95 per person. I was also told it was Opentables error, not the restaurant which was totally unacceptable. This left me in a position to pay that amount if we wanted to eat Thanksgiving dinner as last minute options are not possible. Total ripoff, and handled very unprofessionally."

"This was a lack luster experience overall. Originally we were to be seated on the restaurant side but as soon as we walked in it felt like a cafeteria setting and just didn't have a nice ambiance. Kids running around, loud etc. We moved to the bar side which was, well, a bar side and so not what we were after but ok. Having tv screens turned up and distracting didn't seem to fit the setting either. Service was good, food was good. At the end when we asked for to package up our food the server just placed to go containers on our table rather than take a few seconds to package it up. We asked her to package it and visibly she was upset but did so with a forced smile.
The best experience this evening was the singer they had. She was great and we chatted with her. I would not go back given the price and lack of ambiance for such a beautiful setting."

"Ate 3 dinners and 3 breakfasts here due to it being located at the resort. All meals were tasty and were served as generous portions. The breakfast buffets were impressive with selection and quality of items offered. Prices are a bit steep, however are competitive if compared to other establishments in the area. The convenience of having it on the premises and the caliber of the food in both presentation and freshness make it a good value. All staff members were professional, friendly and accommodating. The views from the restaurant are also a huge value! We enjoyed it very much, thanks."

"We were a party of 8 - 6 adults and 2 kids.
We got two tables of 4 next to each other, which was odd.
The food was great, dishes well composed and flavorful. I recommend the Herb Grilled Fish.
There were a few disappointments, I noted we were celebrating a birthday - no acknowledgement made. The bottle of wine ordered they did not have, not a big deal (but really, if you don't have it, update your list for dinner service) then the desert we ordered, they didn't have that either. Guess it wasn't our night."

"food was ok, crab cakes under cooked. Chicken was good, but veggies over salted. Salad good but over dressed. Server was nice. Get a table outside. Sound level inside is loud"

"Surprisingly good food, very fresh and fitting in with the farm to table theme. Mostly the food had such an excellent quality that it spoke for itself in fairly simply rustic dishes. Very good views of the Bay and sunset. Hostess staff were excellent and very accommodating. Waiter was friendly and polite but clearly lacking in food knowledge and missed some restaurant basics like making sure every one had silverware and side plates for appetizers. Even though you don't have much choice on the north shore for finer dining, I would go back for special occasions as we were happy enough with the food."

"I wouldn't recommend it if you are not celebrating something special or having a once-a-while weekend brunch at a nice place. If you are staying at Turtle Bay and have a car, go find somewhere else which is more affordable. We mostly had eaten here at Kula Grill, food was very good but very pricey."
