    This restaurant is outdoors & it's location is excellent with the surrounding beauty. The food was carefully prepared & excellent food tasting. It is convenient since it is open for breakfast, lunch, early & late dinner.

    The Westin Ka`anapali Ocean Resort Villas is a huge property. The Ocean Pool Bar & Grill starts your day with a good breakfast. An easy breakfast, where you don't linger. Maui has so much to offer. You can order from the menu or enjoy their breakfast buffet. The view is quite nice. The Staff were nice and friendly. We were holding dinner reservation for the night before but did not get in until after 10pm. (Sorry, I could not cancel it in time). It was nice to see the property and take in the view from our table!

    Many of the less expensive restaurants in this area have very similar menus. But this one has a few more selections with a bit more variety. It is located poolside with somewhat of an ocean view. I had fish and chips which were very good and not the least bit greasy. My husband had a pizza which was had a very thin crust; it was OK but rather small and generic. The waitress was very friendly and responsive. We will come back again next year.

    There are no Dungeness crabs. What idiot would pay $50.00 for AYCE snow crabs? You must be joking!

    One of the only all you can eat fresh crab (King) and fried Chicken on the island...worth the drive from Wailea. Includes Maui corn, pineapple crumble, potato salad and caesar salad as well as garlic bread. Great for after a long day of outdoor activities. Gorgeous view. Be sure to make reservations. Brittany our server was delightful.

    While the food was very good, the service was lacking. Specifically the hostess attended to a family that was behind us in line (and we had a reservation), our waiter confused my wife's order (even after repeating back to her), and took over 10 minuted to get her glass of wine she ordered. Once we informed him that he brought out the wrong order, he went back to the office to correct. However, from order to correct food took over 40 minutes. I could understand if the grill was packed, but it wasn't half full.

  • Prime Rib Night

    Dined on 4/3/2014
    Went for their special prime rib night and we're not disappointed. Included salad, prime rib with 2 sides and lavender cheesecake for desert. Great cut of prime rib, cooked as ordered. Had a Brussels sprouts side that was prepared like I've never seen before and very good. Chose a home-style Mac and cheese as my other side and liked that as we'll. The lavender cheesecake with fresh berries was great. This is an outdoor casual poolside restaurant. Only thing that would have made it better is if it was on the beach. But you're on Maui so no complaints there.

    The dining view is great, can't see the ocean, but very peaceful. The service was good once we went back to hostess to see who might be waiting our table. We waited ten minutes to get our server. The food was good, but few menu choices. I would recommend it, especially if you are staying near the Westin, or near the boardwalk.

    We've been to the Bar and Grill several times during our stay at the Westin and we will be back several more times before we leave. We have found the food to good, but the service can be non-existent. We always been seated promptly and where we have requested. The service, though, can be missing in action- number of times no one has shown up to bring water, take a drink order, or provide a menu. Not unusual to have a server who has no clue about the wines or the food. Also have found on repeated occaison that the kitchen is out of certain sides or main dishes and the bar has a limited supply of bottles of wine. We will go back, but are not expecting a seamlessly good experience.

  • It was just OK, nothing special

    The good news is that with the 3 course menu it wasn't overly expensive. The bad news is the wines there were absolute Sh..... once again, this is a restaurant that is going to charge 3X's retail for wine, please at least offer "decent' stem wear or even decent wine service. This type of service (or lack of) is surprising because the Italian restaurant on property is a Wine Spectator award winner. After that, go off property and get a better meal.

    The food was ok. The staff wasn't keeping a very close eye on the servings. When I was at the hot table, there were no mashed potatoes or stuffing. The gravy was only lukewarm. We had to flag down our waiter a few times when we wanted drink refills or after dinner coffees. The waiter was friendly and pleasant I just think he had too many tables to look after.
