Our group from the Hyundai Tournament jumped on a free shuttle from the golf course to the Pineapple Grille in Kapalua.  We were seated near the bar and given the Grill Menu.  The actual dining section serves a completely different menu and has panoramic views of Kapalua.  We don't know why we were seated at the bar.  Just might have been the time we arrived.  We ordered a bunch of dishes for the table and a few individual entrees.  The Furakake Crusted Calamari ($12.95) was good but I am not a big Furakake fan.  The Calamari however were large and flavorful.  I loved the Shiitake Mushroom Pork Hash Spring Rolls ($9.95).  Among the best Spring Rolls I have had in Hawaii.  Loved them!  The Crab Cakes ($13.95) were crusty as billed.  They were full of lump crab meat and very good.  The Onion Rings ($6.95) were standard.  The Pistachio and Wasabi Sashimi ($17.95) was a bit expensive but perfectly prepared and delicious.  Not pictured are the Pineapple Grille Burger ($12.95) and Chicken Sandwich ($13.95).  My friends loved these items and both substituted Truffle Fries for the standard french fries.  This is a $1.00 up charge that is certainly worth the price.  The Pineapple Grill Truffle Fries are to die for.  Simply delicious.  Full of truffle flavor that explodes in your mouth.  If you like truffles, the Truffle Fries here are a must.  I tried the Portuguese Bean Soup ($7.95).  This was the most bland and tasteless soup I have ever had.  Soup out of a can would be better than this.  The soup was lacking something to add flavor.  Maybe salt?  The Fish and Chips ($13.95) were delicious.  Again, everyone opted for the Truffle Fries.  The fish was lightly battered and nice tasting.  This is a great spot to enjoy a cocktail and pupu's in Kapalua.  I will put this on my must do list every time I visit Kapalua.
