One of the places my in-laws higly suggested us to go to was Haliimaile General Store. So my husband, 1 year old, in-laws and I went on our first night out. The food was delicious! My sin gobbled up the monchong and mashed potatotes whike the rest of us devoured our various different meals. He was completely entertained by ecerything hanging frim the ceilings and walls! The waitstaff was courteous. We definitely can't complain about anything. We had such a great exoerience there that it kick started our need to try all of Bev Gannon's Maui restaurants. On our last night in Maui my husband and I returned to Hailiimaile for one last amazing meal!.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreatBrought in food items for the Food Bank and received 1/2 off on all entries.

Bev is one of the Best Chefs in the US.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific Relaxed MealWhat a fun restaurant! The food can be GREAT and is, at least, always GOOD. The drive to get there, the views from the area, are all spectacular. It's casual but lovely. You'll have a great time.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable.We dined here twice this trip. Fresh fish, fresh produce, well prepared. The service was very good and we very much enjoyed this Maui standout. Dining room is on the loud side, if you are seated by the bar get ready for the roar of the blender.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMA Wonderful Experience!What a nice surprise this restaurant was! The food & service were exceptional! The décor warm and inviting! A must for anyone visiting Maui! It's a bit of a drive from Kaanapali, but well worth it! Be for warned, it is expensive!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe green coconut curry isThe green coconut curry is simply the best and well worth the drive!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMSugar cane field find.An establishment with a great deal of history. Kept the look of a general store during plantation days in Maui.
The ribs fall of the bones the fish ever so fresh. Good bar and attentive wait service. A must on your dinning list.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Hawaiian regional foodThis was our annual visit to Maui and even though it's a drive from either Wailea or Kaanapali we almost always include a dinner at Haliimaile General Store. I love the Chi Chi's that the regular bartender, Tim, makes and will call ahead to verify he's working before booking a reservation. If you like coconut based drinks give one a try, you won't be disappointed. Dinner was excellent. I tried the hanger steak as opposed to my usual rack of lamb and was very pleased. Service was attentive but not intrusive. We prefer to sit in the front area even though it can be noisy as there's a nice breeze usually and the casual feel is great. This is our favorite of the three Gannon restaurants in Maui.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always Hailimaile delivers...froAs always Hailimaile delivers...from the friendly manager and entire staff, to Carol 'our favorite'.

Staff friendly and helpful.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant is the bestThis restaurant is the best in Maui that we have found. It is out of the way in terms of location, so it has to be excellent.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAfter a long hike in the rainAfter a long hike in the rain across the crater at Haleakala this was a welcome treat! Excellent selection and preparation of fish dishes and tasty desserts. Pineapple upside down cake was awesome.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOasis in the sugar cane fieldsOff the beaten track and well worth every minute of the drive. Miles of sugar cane fields between town and this "old Hawaii" gem. The lillikoi creme brulee was the best dessert I've ever had, bought the cookbook so I can attempt it at home. This is the kind of restaurant that travelers dream of, leave your resort and have the most amazing meal of your trip.

Well worth the drive....make a reservation.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA Day To RememberAs usual our lunch was a HIT !! Dale our waiter made our dining experience "The BEST" and all 5 guests enjoy their lunch to the fullest!!
If you want to have a GREAT day have lunch at the Haliimaile General Store, then head to the Lavender Gardens, hit "The Surfing Goat Farm and end the day at MaMa's Fish House and you will not regret a moment of what you did that day.
Have fun!!!!!1/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is an excellent restaurant.This is an excellent restaurant. The food was delicious (wontons, popcorn shrimp, ribs), service very attentive, and the atmosphere is very homelike. It is an excellent dining experience.12/7/2012 12:00:00 AMWe had our best meal hereWe had our best meal here on our 2 week vacation on Maui. The fish was cooked to absolute perfection; the sauce was exquisite; the Maui mashed sweet potatoes and veggies were all delicious. The ahi napoleon appetizer continues to be the best appetizer we've ever had. The only thing that keeps me from rating this place the highest in everything is the fact that it is in what used to be a general store and the ambience is pleasant but cannot compare to the ambience and view at Mama's Fish House and Merriman's. The chef is an absolute treasure and they should appreciate him like the island treasure that he is.11/23/2012 12:00:00 AM
