A word from Kimo's Restaurant Maui
On the water in the heart of historic Lahaina Town, Kimo’s offers a casual, quintessentially Maui dining experience. This landmark restaurant is renowned for its fresh Hawaiian fish, prime rib, prime steaks and Original Hula Pie. Kimo’s has been regarded as a Maui “must do” for over 35 years. Visitors and locals alike return again and again for generous portions, reasonable prices and lively atmosphere. Lunch and dinner are served daily along with ocean breezes, spectacular views of the islands of Lana’i and Moloka’i, fiery sunsets, and friendly, gracious Island hospitality. At lunch time we offer a more casual menu and do not accept reservations. Lunch seating is on a walk-in basis only.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We have always made it a point to put Kimo's on our must dine when we are in Maui. Unfortunately on our last visit - overall experience was a let down. Service was spotty. And food portions have gotten smaller. Fish entrees were good except vegetables were bitter. Kids meal food quality was mediocre. Yes, the view is beautiful, however feel there are much better restaurant options in this price range."

  • "We went to Kimo's as our last dinner in Maui, we were flying home that very night. I would recommend people get there early, it was quite busy and we had a little bit of a wait. We had previously made reservations using open table, but we wanted preferred seating so we waited a bit longer. The hostess's were extremely friendly and energetic and got people seated as quickly as possible. The wait staff were wonderful and friendly. The drink selection was creative and I choose the Lave Flow and it was phenomenal!! The fish is fresh daily and both of our selections were beyond wonderful!!! We were very pleased with our last dinner in Maui!"

  • "The food we ordered was actually pretty good. We ordered two salads to share between four people and the staff brought them out on four plates for us. The marlin was prepared quite well, not soggy and.soft nor dry and hard. My only complaints are that the outdoor tables are so small we could barely fit all of our plates and and drinks, they were edge to edge. There were a lot of kids; the two beside us knocked the bread and muffins (yes you served muffins with bread) off there own table after five minutes of being seated. Some other kids were taking "selfies" the entire night. Thankfully there were no screaming babies and tantrum toddlers."

  • "Got a Table Downstairs, by the sea, and while downstairs is a bi tore pub-like and fast paced The waiter was excellent and always there. Food was really good. It is just great island food, period. It is priced accordingly too. Enjoy the Fresh Fish : :Lehi, Mahi Mahi or Wonchong. Kimo's style Baked is really the best :). I suggest getting a reservation that will be about 60 to 90 minutes from sunset time, that way you get the timing of Sunset for dessert. PS the Sunset was really nice to watch over Coffee and the HUGE Luau Pie Ice-cream!"

  • "The food was good but we were not a fan of the dark nautical decor. Might have felt differently if we got a waterfront table. Dark and drab inside. Too many other great choices to go here again."

  • "If for nothing else, you should come here for this. Their hula pie is amazing! The food was good, prime rib was well-seasoned and tasty. We went during an extremely busy hour (sunset) and so felt a little rushed."

  • "We brought our group of six people and made a reservation for dinner. Our table was ready exactly on time. We all ordered different fish dinners and we all really enjoyed them. Poke pupus really good too. We split two hula pies and left stuffed and happy. I appreciated the real mail tais, not fake Hawaiian ones that any hack with some rum and juice could make. I will bring my group here next time I come to Maui."

  • "This restaurant is always consistent. The food was excellent and the waitress was very personable. I didn't rate it 5 stars only because we sat at a window table (which I asked for) but the sun was in my eyes almost the entire meal. I guess I should have asked to be moved. The Kimo's preparation on the fresh fish is excellent and the hula pie never disappoints."

  • "Kimo's goes above and beyond in their service and dishes. Their staff is friendly and prompt. Their food has a beautiful presentation, but above that it is delicious. This is a must visit for anyone traveling to Maui."

  • "We had the lobster topped fish and the ribs and really enjoyed our food. The servers were friendly and attentive. Share a hula pie for dessert! The restaurant also has a great view if you manage to get a table at the waters edge."

  • "Had an awesome dinner there. The sashimi was so fresh and amazing. Beers were great, craft local Bikini Blonde from Kona Brewing company. Both my husband and I had the MahiMahi with lobster and butter sauce. It was SO good. Delicious, fresh, tasty. Had a wonderful view of the ocean from our table, right on the waterfront. Service was terrific. Couldn't have asked for a better dinner."

  • "When you start with this kind of location you are in for a great evening! First off, James at the bar helped map out our plan at the Plantation Golf course! The grain goes towards the sunset and the greens really, really played that way! Hit into the grain and it has to be firm. Hit with the grain and the ball will roll. Now that I have the golf out of the way......the food and the view is second to none! We have been to Maui five times and Kimo's is always on our list. Being the by the water and sunset is worth it! Make reservations.......great food, great ambience, great service!"

  • "Prime rib was fatty & no taste & little rubbery texture. Hula pie was awesome as ever--will return for just that."

  • "We have visited Kimo's on Maui for 31 years. The food has always been excellent, the service outstanding and the ambiance is very Maui. But the special treat is planning your reservation 30 minutes before sundown and being treated to incredible sunsets! A "must do" on any Maui vacation!"

  • "Our mahi was excellently prepared. Our waiter was great. Would have liked a better view, but no worries. We also had the calamari that was delicious and very fresh. One of the best in Maui. "
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "The friendly and attentive service combined with the cute, antique décor of the restaurant and scenic view of the ocean made for a wonderful sunset dinner. The seared ahi was very thick and fresh, and the prime rib was cooked to perfection, but my honey and yuzu fish was a little overcooked and dry. Overall, it was a great experience though. "

  • "Referred by a friend and we weren't disappointed! Asked for a table with a view as we were celebrating our anniversary. Hostess gave us the best table in the restaurant and manager came to our table offered celebratory cocktails and a free Hula Pie. We declined the drinks, but indulged in their famous dessert. Food was great and service fabulous!!! Thank you Kimo's for making our first visit with you a memorable one!"

  • "First problem... reservation for 8, was set at a table, that on a good day could maybe seat 6, literally could not fit all the plates on the table at the same time. Second problem... waiter didn't come back for over 20 minutes to take our food orders, we were on our second round of drinks, before we saw him again. Just poor service. Too bad for him, I usually tip 30%+ Third Problem... Rare Prime rib came out WELL WELL done. Fourth problem... Childs steak medalion meal came out tasting like cleaning chemicals... " response " oh we don't make these they are in frozen packages" I am local, and enjoy the bar here on occasion... but will NEVER suggest Kimo's for dinner to ANYONE"

  • "This was a return visit for us. Had lunch here on our first trip and really enjoyed it so decided to try them out for dinner and we were not disappointed. Both my husband and I got the chicken, filet kebabs and they were delicious. Ended our meal with the hula pie. Wow!"

  • "This was not our first time at Kimo's, but might be the last. We had reserved a table for dinner upstairs by the edge, knowing that we we be shaded during the sunset. Instead we were seated downstairs next to an obnoxiously loud wedding party, with the bright sun glaring in our faces. My Ono was over cooked and incredibly dry, did not even appear to be freshly prepared. Husbands cioppino was loaded with fish in an overspiced sauce. A very disappointing experience all together. This restaurant is not at all what it used to be. "

  • "Two of our daughters choose not to eat meat or fish. There is only one option and the kids both ordered it (tofu) only to be told the restaurant was sold out and there were no options including rice, vegetables etc as the rice was cooked in chicken broth and it had meat in the veggies. A chef should be creative enough to come up with something else. Food land and Safeway were close to buy tofu. The European waitress smiled big and was pleasant but even after we implored her many times she came up with zero suggestions. Very disappointing. "

  • "Decided to have a nice dinner at Kimo's since this was our final evening on Maui. We went online and booked reservations. We arrived on time and we were seated at the upstair balcony dining table in the center edge, giving a nice early sunset view of the ocean. The waiter introduced himself, promptly took our drink order, then explained the menu. Donna ordered Kimo's mahi-mahi, I ordered the ribs. We were both very pleased with the food and dining area, closing our Maui vacation nicely."

  • "I took my wife and 3 kids (10, 7, 5) for dinner. The hostess was friendly and quick to get us seated. The view of the ocean on the open-air balcony was amazing. Our server was also friendly and quick to get us drinks and take our order. Not only do you have a server, but there are also cocktail servers who stop frequently to ask if you need another drink. The food was delicious. Some of the best I've ever had. The kids loved it too which is a rarity. You must save room for the hula pie. Two pieces was almost too much for the 5 of us after our meal. "
