I went here twice with my parents. The first time we were looking for something a little lighter since we were very jet lagged. We sat outside with a view of the golf course. We got the chicken satay, pork sliders and fish and chips. We went again later in our stay and sat inside and ordered the pasta and the pork chop. Delicious food and wonderful service! Both times we had the pineapple upside down cake with Mac but icecream for dessert-it is THE BEST!

This was my first time to the Pineapple Grill and I found it to be very pleasant and enjoyable. It was a vibrant enough scene to make it fun but the tables are properly spaced to make it romantic. All of the food was really enjoyable. This is on our list of recommended places now.

Aim for Wednesday night. A very wide selection of very fine wines are offered and half price. You just cannot beat the food, wine, service, and ambiance. Kapalua is sedate, not noisy and energetic like Lahaina. Not for everyone, but if you want to be able to converse over excellent food, this is it.

Give this place a try
We have visited this Pineapple Grill twice - both times for an anniversary celebrations. The atmosphere is relaxed. Service is good but don't expect them to hover over you. All the recommendations were good - appetizers on through dessert. We had the filet and it was simply fantastic - couldn't have been any better. So make a reservation, allot time for an unrushed and wonderful dining experience. Do it!

Went to the Pineapple Grill for the second time (previous was 5 years ago). Food , service, setting, everything was excellent as we remembered. A fabulous dinner.

We ate lunch here last week and it was so good we had to come back again for dinner this week! We are totally foodies and indulged in a 4 course meal; nothing disappointed, everything was fabulous. Our favorites though were the scallop appetizer and the brea pudding for dessert. We will be back again!
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding regional menu. Service was attentive yet casual. Would return and recommend.

The wine list is second to none of the six resturants we ate at on three islands! If are looking for the hard to find wines that are yummy.....go to the Pineapple Grill! The monchong and swordfish were very, very good! You know the swordfish is good when it is moist! I wish we would of gone there eariler when it was still light outside!

The Best of The West (Maui)
The Pineapple Grill in Kapalua is a very special dining experience. Elegant indoor ambience with open air windows looking out to the beautiful golf courses. The food is sublime, my favorite is the pistachio-crusted seared ahi. The service is friendly & knowledgeable. The atmosphere is wonderful: beautiful Hawaiian music in the background, quiet enough to have a nice conversation or romantic evening. This isn't the most expensive restaurant in West Maui, but we think it is the best and we go back every year.

Excellent food, so-so service
Okay, Pineapple Grill seems more like a country club dining room more than a resort restaurant. That being said, the food is quite excellent. The fish and beef entrees are cooked quite well, at least a step ahead of most other Maui restaurants. The service, however, lacks a little something--attentiveness. You can sit for quite some time before getting another drink (or whatever else you desire). Given the price, one would expect a little better service from the staff.

Bento box - yum!
The bento box lunch was a great way to try several items on the menu. Delicious! Another great experience at Pineapple Grill!
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lovely restaurant with excellent food and service. We arrived for a 8:30 reservation and were never rushed even when the restaurant closed at 10. Highly recommend and will be back on our next Maui visit. Make sure you try the pineapple upside down cake...delicious!
8/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
The scallop appetizer was delicious. The watermelon, arugula and feta cheese salad was very refreshing. The Wagyu short ribs was simply fantastic! The pineapple upside down cake with ice cream was the best for finishing a meal. I'd go back and dine there again and in fact I did the next day for lunch.

My best dining experience on Maui
My husband and I ate out almost everyday on our honeymoon and if I had to choose only one place as my favourite it would have to be the Pineapple Grill. Service was excellent and the food delish. We shared the lobster curry soup and fish special. Yummm! We finished off with the pineapple upside down cake- best I've ever had.

Another Maui favorite!
Pineapple Grill is a great find in Kapalua! We even went for an amazing breakfast this year-all delicious. Dinner was amazing including the dessert known as the restaurant favorite-pineapple upside down cake with macadamia nut ice cream. All of the entrees were delicious. The staff was attentive and friendly!! Don't miss it on your visit-
8/8/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great food with a nice view
Great service. The scallops and mushroom risotto was delicious.
We will come back.

Pineapple Grill is not to be missed
This is definitley our number 1 choice on Maui for an outstanding dinner. The restaurant is very welcoming, the tables are spaced so that you are not on top of other guests and the food is both beautiful and a great taste sensation. Do not miss the pineapple upside down cake for dessert.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Overall quality was very good and i was a bit surprised to not see the restaurant overly crowded.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great menu selection of local seafood. Will go back on our next visit. Our server Jessica was a real gem.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Must have pineapple dessert!
We ate here for breakfast and 2 dinners while on vacation. Never a disappointment! Chef does a fantastic job with the fish and pasta dishes! Try the Kobe beef and goat cheese ravioli, you won't be disappointed! End your meal with the pineapple dessert-- yum!
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Must have dessert
Maui gold upside down cake is worth dining here...save room for dessert!

The view from the Pineapple
The view from the Pineapple Grill is awesome and the food/service is very good, which are ingredients for a most enjoyable lunch. My Cobb salad was delicious and the rolls served to the table were amongst the best I have ever eaten.
Pineapple Grill is an excellent choice for good food, a scenic view, and reasonable prices.
9/16/2013 5:00:00 PM
Our third trip to Maui and have dined here several times each time. It has always been an excellent experience. Dined here twice this time with our family. For the most part food was excellent once again with only one exception. Chicken was not as tender as I would have liked, but overall a first rate establishment.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was more than just very good. Food and service were excellent.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went to the Pineapple Grill maybe 25 years ago when it was the Bar and Grill. Time and name changes haven't eroded the high caliber of the food, which remains a great value (even though the prices are not modest). Staff was just right -- responsive but not intrusive. WIne list deep and of high quality. Also, the Mai Tais had some octane. More than half of the places we tried on this trip served Mai Tais in a distinctive glass and with hardly any oomph. Beware the distinctive glass.

The BEST in Maui!
Pineapple Grill never disappoints us! This visit we had the Manchong encrusted in panko and Mac nuts. It was spectacular! It was so fresh, moist and delicious. The purple Molokai potatoes it was served on were rich and creamy. AND of course, we saved room for the delectable upside down pineapple cake. The best dessert ever! Needless to say, we love Pineapple Grill and recommend it to all of our friends and family visiting Maui. By the way, the service is wonderful; very attentive without being intrusive.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
OMG the food was incredible
OMG the food was incredible thank you Adrian my Seafood bouillabaisse was the best seafood dinner ever we will be back you made our trip :)
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding restaurant. Staff remembered me from a prior visit weeks ago. Food was very delicious. I loved the crust on the prime rib. Meat was tender and au jus and creamy horseradish complemented the meat. Can't wait to go back!

Favorit Meal of our trip
The food was great and the view was amazing. Best meal of our trip to Maui. Clean, bright and service was great. YUM!
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good, but not great.
Pineapple Grill was on a top 10 list. Walking in it held promise, nice area, very friendly staff. Our server was terrific--knowledgable and attentive throughout. She described the special so well that we both chose it for the entry--scallops and shrimp in a mild curry with a side of jasmine rice. It was good, but from the description and at $40, we expected to be at least a little knocked out. We also ordered a side of their Brussels sprouts. Excellent. Our granddaughter ordered mac and cheese. Frankly it was just so-so. Finally we shared the signature dessert, pineapple upside-down cake. We were knocked out! Maybe dessert is an indication of how good PG could be but with a $145 ticket (no wine and with tip), even in Maui, we expected more.

A great night out!
The Pineapple Grill experience was much better than our Plantayion House experience of a few years ago.
Our waitress was knowledgeable and vey friendly. Food and atmosphere was tremendous!

Last minute decision
We were hunting for an alternative dining experience from the standard Kaanapali mix. A quick check of recent reviews and we selected the Pineapple Grill. We were not disappointed. Great food, knowledgable staff and a great wine list. We will return.

Great Food & View1
We had heard about how great this place was, so went thereon our first night in Maui this October. It lived up to its reputation. We were seated at a window table and enjoyed the spectacular view while we dined. We went early so we could catch the sunset, and we re happy we did. The place filled up rapidly, with a 'golf club' type crowd. It was obvious many diners were local, from their greetings to one another. We highly recommend this place for special occasion as it is a bit pricey, but the food is worth it.

We always eat here on our first night in Maui. Restaurant was under some renovation so ambience slightly affected. Prices have greatly increased since our last visit, but the food was delicious. The Monchung was firm and sweet. The best Mai Tai's in Maui.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Don't miss this Restaurant !
The pineapple grill was so good for lunch we decided to visit it again during our stay for dinner. The food is superb and the service outstanding. Any of the fresh fish are a great choice. My husband had a filet of beef and you could cut it with a fork. We lingered over dinner and the staff was sensitive to our desire to take our time. Although this restuarant is located in Kapulua, the drive from Lahaina is well worth it.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
First night on Maui & we couldn't wait to return to our favorite restaurant. Our favorite server Tara greeted us warmly and definitely added to our experience.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were greeted at our table by a great waitress, Sharon, and from then on the meal was perfect. The food was outstanding. We picked a Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand that we had had before and is very hard to find. The dessert was their famous Pineapple Upside Down Cake and it was the best. Overall a great meal and a great experience.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Delightful and Delicious
We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Pineapple Grill. It came highly recommended in a local newspaper, so we decided to give it a try - and we were definitely not disappointed! We shared a starter (perfectly prepared pork spring rolls) and a salad (topped with their signature - and quite wonderful - pineapple vinaigrette). The macadamia/lemongrass mahi mahi and caprese pasta entrees were equally wonderful, as was the best-we've-ever-eaten pineapple upside down cake. As much as we enjoyed the food, the service was even better: perfect pacing, just the right interaction, great recommendations. We'll be back on our next visit to Maui!
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good for repeats
I have eaten here many times. Always a very good experience because of the cuisine and ambience.

Needs to be more Hawaiian. To much like home. Fine dining but lacking a Hawaiian personality. Except the name which we like.

Excellent food, excellent service
Best service we had during our 10 days in Maui. I ordered the blue crab crusted monchong, which was cooked to perfection. My hubby ordered the filet and shrimp add on, everything perfectly cooked and they flavor was confidentially delishious. We had the upside down cake for dessert, ummm, heavenly.
Our sever had the perfect amount of attention, including her support staff. When we left, 4 or 5 people thanked us for coming in, including other servers and bussers. Special night!

What a pleasant surprise to
What a pleasant surprise to find this restaurant among the golf villas and. It any easy find if youisten to your gps and. It your concierge. The spring roll appy and the steamed Manila clams with.black beans were spectacular ! The beef short ribs was to die for and the local salad of arugula watermelon and surfing goat cheese was delightful
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
I have always loved this restaurant. Food is very good. Love the bar and it's energy and the wine list is fantastic. The only issue this restaurant faces in the future is its atmosphere. It's starting to get tired and old. They need to renovate the bar area and dining room to make it more relevant and contemporary. If they do this and do it right, they could/should elevate themselves to the restaurant that every one talks about - it's a must stop for those visiting this side of the island.
