Diner Reviews
  • "Have enjoyed many good meals here over past several years, but our antenna should have gone up when the waiter told us they stopped lighting the tiki torches out back to cut costs. Really? And the Dow Jones is over 17,000. The prime rib was anything but prime, not even convinced it was a rib roast. The lamb chops could have been good if they had a decent cut of meat. The coconut lobster bisque is still good, but the lobster meat cost extra. But of course. We have a many friends from the mainland that eat here based on our recommendation and I plan on letting them know about that "cost cutting measures" are in effect! We won't be back until someone can convince us otherwise. Too bad, always liked the place before."

  • "This place is incredible. Seriously underrated online. Food was PHENOMENAL! Our waiter was attentive but not pushy which is always appreciated. My husband and I absolutely loved Pineapple Grill. The food is to die for. We were seated at a table overlooking the course with views of the oceans. And the Mai Tai's we ordered when we first sat down were great."

  • "We enjoyed our dinner with a lovely view. The blue crab monchong (sic) was delicious! The ribeye was excellent. We had the creme brûlée for dessert. Would order it all again! A bit pricey, but not disappointed! I would recommend highly. We arrived right when they opened. At first, a few bar patrons were loud, but once the restaurant was a bit busy, romantic and scenic."

  • "You can't go wrong here...Everything on the menu is great. This year I ventured away from my usual fish and had the duck special. Wow....what a feast...great preparation and excellent flavor. Wife and daughters all loved their entrees also....Service is excellent and everyone makes you feel at home. We can't wait to go back next year !!!"

  • "We had an excellent meal at Pineapple Grill. It came highly recommended by friends of ours who had been 5+ years ago, and I thought it was excellent. As with many places on Maui, it did feel overpriced for what we got, and we did eat other places that were just as good; but, that being said, we did really enjoy it."

  • "This was our third visit to pineapple grill. While the interior looks like it needs an update, the food is consistent and good without being overdone. Order the short ribs or ahi. All is good. Service is friendly but lacks precision, but the friendly attention makes up for it."

  • "Our experience at the Pineapple Grill was good...very quiet night for a Saturday night, hence the "quiet" noise level. The ambiance was fine as well as the food... just that our server was slow and inattentive which wasn't acceptable considering the place was sparse with patrons."

  • "We were very disappointed with the quality of the food. For example, the chicken was tough, the pasta was overlooked and obviously spent too much time under warmer or heat lamp, and other dishes were equally disappointing. The service was mediocre and rushed. With so many great restaurants in the area I don't know how this place survives."

  • "Overall, the food, service and atmosphere was the best we experienced on Maui. Although other restaurants have better views of a beach or water, this restaurant has a great view of the golf course and the bay (sunset) in the distance. It also had had more variety in the menu and the presentation was excellent. My wife, who doesn't enjoy sea food, ordered a delicious beef short rib that made her very happy. And I give thumbs up to the bar!"

  • "We had a great lunch at Pineapple Grill. My Cajun blackened mahi sandwich was awesome. The French fries are done perfectly. My husband and son also thoroughly enjoyed their sandwich and burger here. The drinks are good (lava flow and bloody mary). The service is also very good. The views of the Maui mountain with the Kapalua breezes can't be beat. We will definitely come back on our next Maui visit."

  • "I read of numerous awards given the Pineapple Grill and made reservations before coming to the island. Although the setting was beautiful and the service attentive, the food did not live up to expectations. The Caesar Salad lacked flavor and the bouillabaisse just average. Plenty of fresh seafood, but the broth was nothing special. Finally, the flour less chocolate cake seemed undercooked. Ours was not a bad experience, but it was disappointing nonetheless. "

  • "We ALMOST didn't bother going in since the outside is so shabby. That would have been a huge mistake. We sat on the outdoor patio with a view of the ocean and had a fabulous meal. Great service, delicious dining. Exceptional meal."

  • "We enjoyed our snapper and mongchong, both prepared to tintilate the taste and sight. Salad and signature pineapple upside down cake compliment the meal perfectly. Whenever we visit Maui regardless of where we stay it is worth a special drive for the meal. "

  • "We chose this restaurant mostly based on its proximity to where we were stating and Yelp reviews. There was a nice variety of of meat and seafood selections. The food was over seasoned and not served hot enough (lukewarm). The view is of a golf course with ocean in back. The sun blazes in through floor to ceiling windows so the shades are drawn. There were a few adequate bottles of wine at not too high of a mark up. Overall it was Napa Valley prices for a bit better than mediocre food, which for around here actually rates a good value! "

  • "We were given a table overlooking the golf course and could see the ocean past the tall pines in the background. We first tried the caprese salad as an appetizer. The waiter said for an extra $2 we could get it split with 'larger portions.' The macadamia nut pesto over the mozzarella and yellow tomato was very good but the portion size left me wanting more. For dinner I had the short ribs and my wife the free range chicken. I really enjoyed mine and would definitely recommend it. They were very tender and the pineapple chutney combined with the glaze was a nice flavor. My wife liked the free range chicken but was not blown away by it. Overall I would dine there again. The wait staff was attentive and very nice, food above average."

  • "We have always liked the location of the Pineapple Grill. It has a beautiful view towards the ocean. Our dinner was fine. Mine was a bit heavy - pasta with vegetables and shrimp. My husband's was better - short ribs. I am not certain why restaurants feel the need to supersize the portions. We both left over half our dinners on the plates. Too much food. The obesity epidemic is prevalent in Hawaii!"

  • "We both had a fun tine and the pupu menu was great at reasonable prices. Our wine choice was excellent and it was 1/2 off on Wed. We try to go to the spot at least once a month when we are on island."

  • "Our party of four had a great experience with terrific food and very good service. Two things of a negative nature struck us: first, we were there on a Monday which the web site indicates is a day that offers a 3-course meal with a bottle of wine for $120 per couple; we wanted to check out that possibility but the menu did not say anything about it and our waitress did not mention it; only by asking specifically for it can one see the menu for that special. We ended up ordering off the regular menu anyway, but it was disappointing to us that one had to ask for the special menu for that day. Second, we were charged to share a salad; I do not recall a separate "split" charge on prior visits and was disappointed by the attitude of charging."

  • " Views of the Kapalua Resort and ocean are terrific from Pineapple Grill, and the food is very good. My family enjoyed the chicken Cobb salad as well as the french toast & bacon entrees. It is nice that both breakfast and lunch are served on weekend afternoons. Prices are reasonable and the service was very attentive making for a most positive dining experience at Pineapple Grill. I recommend this restaurant for breakfast, lunch, or dinner any time one is on West Maui."

  • "The Asian Braised Short Rib and the Blue Crab Encrusted Monchong were excellent. It was my 66th and Pineapple Grill kindly celebrated it with a complementary and exceptional pineapple upside down cake topped with Macadamia nut ice cream. Anyone staying in west Maui should put Pineapple Grill on their list of must go to restaurants."

  • "This was my first time back in awhile and we went three times in a week. The Carne Asada Huevos Rancheros is the best ever. Lunch and dinner are a good choice as well. All of the dishes we tried were great. We will definitely return. "

  • "The restaurant is part of a golf course. It felt like the place where the golfers ended up after their day on the course. The dining room felt dated and the service was "ok". Dinner matched the ambiance."

  • "Went last night as our special night out. Food was just ok, nothing spectacular. The spinach salad was overdressed, wine list was lack luster. My Mahi Mahi was overlooked, my husbands swordfish was good. The ambiance was typical golf clubhouse, a little dark and dingy. Would not go back."
