Favorite Lavallette restaurant. Have been going here for a number of years & it has never disappointed me. Food is excellent, service great, & the open Kitchen allows you to watch dinner being made! Accepts reservations, which is great in the summer!

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
