Authentic Hawaiian barbecue eatery opens new tiki-themed spot, new food truck in the works


If you’re tired of the same old burgers and fries, and looking for something exciting, adventurous and delicious, Ohana Island Grill is for you. With its first central Ohio location at 3512 W. Dublin Granville Rd., the concept is also expanding now, and in more ways than one.

The word Ohana means “family” in Hawaiian, and the Hawaiian barbecue spot incorporates its own family values and family-owned ethics into its practice as its serves central Ohio

After its first location opened in Oxford (on the campus of Miami University) last December, the positive customer feedback Ohana received has already led to a new Columbus location with a larger kitchen and more spacious dining room.


More than just providing a great meal, the Hawaiian barbecue spot aims to give a taste of home to West Coast transplants, and offer central Ohio residents a brand-new culinary adventure.

If you’re new to Hawaiian barbecue, you may not where to start, but sticking with Ohana’s top sellers won’t steer you wrong. One of the restaurant’s flagship dishes is its BBQ Mix, which combines barbecue chicken, beef and short ribs. Katzu Chicken, which is crispy, crunchy and topped with katzu sauce, is another top seller. The restaurant also offers other traditional island dishes, such as Loco Mock,  Kalua Pork, Musubi and more. Catering is available for all occasions from Ohana as well.

The family-owned Ohana is also expanding with a new location that offers a whole new dining experience. The new Ohana location is now open in Downtown Delaware (it is located at 14 W. William St.), operating as a full service restaurant. Looking for a little more fun with your food? The Delaware location also offers ten different tiki drinks to to make sure you get a chance to enjoy the full Hawaiian experience.

And if you that’s all Ohana has to offer, think again. The concept is also working on a food truck that will bring an authentic Hawaiian barbecue experience to even more Ohioans, and not just in the Columbus area. Look for the Ohana food truck to open sometime this summer.
