Even though we got a breezy
Even though we got a breezy evening which required sweaters at the outdoor table, the view was still drop dead beautiful. Garden near at hand, ocean in the distance with Molokini nearby and Kaholwae in the distance. One thing the cloudy evening gave us was a long twilight, which is unusual for over there.
We did drinks, appetizers, salads, and deserts, and were stuffed. Even took some of the salad home. Cocktails were an excellent recipie, gin and lavendar. They had excellent Washington State oysters. I hate getting East Coast seafood in Hawaii. Salads were tasty and good sized. Dessert menu was a little uninspired.

Excellent food, slow service
Went for dinner and the food and outside dining was excellent. However the service was extremely slow. 30 minutes from the time we sat down until we got our beverages. Then another 30-40 minutes between first course and entree. I think they are short staffed both in service and kitchen. Went for lunch the next day and the food came out faster. Just be prepared to wait if you go and not have starving kids.

A wonderful dinner...the only problem being that the service was almost "too fast". There was essentially no time between courses...which made the meal feel very rushed.

Spectacular view with fabulous food
There is a a slogan that says "Go, there's nothing stopping you!" which applies here. The food is top notch and the menu is varied. We had breakfast here one day without reservations and were wowed by the breathtaking views from our table. The food was wonderful. Hubby had steak and eggs and I had banana macadamia nut pancakes. Both were outstanding. We returned for dinner later in week, with reservations, and had almost the same table. Sun was already setting which provided yet another gorgeous scenic view while we dined. I had the seared diver scallops with risotto, while hubby had lobster and steak. Both were divine. Also had the crab tower appetizer and butterscotch pudding dessert. Don't miss this!

Seared Ahi perfection!!!
Originally planned on Haliimaile General Store, but decided against it after considering the ambience and acoustics (better acoustics/ambience - amazing view and sunset). Started with the Crab Fonduta and raw bar Sushi/Sashimi Sampler. Fonduta is always a must. Sampler plate was just "meh". Dinner entrees selected: Scallops (nice sear, risotto cooked perfectly), King Salmon (hearts of palm a nice touch, Mr. asked for a side of Forbidden Rice, which he first became a fan of at Haliimaile), and the Fennel Crusted Ahi (no exaggeration-absolutely the best seared (rare) ahi that I've had ANYWHERE. The fennel is a tasty change from the typical sesame crust that is offered everywhere else. Love the sea salt in the butter served with the bread.

Great rib eye and fresh catch of the day. Be prepared... It is expensive. But... It is worth it.

Chef Gannon's food was fantastic
We were a group of four that decided to forgo Mama's Fish house and try Gannon's. The view was amazing and the food was very memorable. We started with muscles, ceasar salad and oyster pupus followed by ono in a buttery wine sauce, paella, and mahi enrusted with cashews in a green curry sauce. All of it was fabulous. There was one damper on what could have been a perfect evening meal. there were several group parties taking place below and adjacent to our table which made for a noisier experience than we would have liked. The service and food were so exceptional that this would not deter us from coming again.

Our new favorite on Maui
We have been coming to Maui for 22 years. We try to eat at a variety of restaurants. We are always trying new restaurants.
The view is spectacular. It is only out done by the food. The scallops on lobster risotto was excellent. My husband thought it was the best scallop dish he has ever had. He should know,he only eats scallops when we dine out. The mahi-mahi dish was worth the trip to the restaurant. It is the best on the island. We will be heading up the hill to Gannon's again before we head home.

we chose tonight really and sit outside. It was a beautiful sunset their outdoor seating and the view of the ocean was spectacular.
from the pokey to the ice cream vanilla cake everything yummy. The service from the back waiters to the server was spot on. We did not have to wait for anything.

Great location. Beautiful setting. Awesome food presentation & the food was very tasty. The service was slow. The manager Rico came to our table to apologize and comp'd our soup. We love the romantic setting but couldn't read the dessert menu.

We always eat at The General Store at least 3 times during our 10 day stay on Maui and also like Gannon's. We went for dinner and had an excellent experience. We had the goat cheese and onion tart , salads, soup, and the mahimahi. It was all very good. The patio setting is beautiful.

Best food we had in Maui
Fantastic patio setting overlooking a lush golf course with the Pacific in the background. We had been in Maui for 12 nights and ate at all the top places on the island. Our family of 4 agreed that the food was the best we had during our visit. The atmosphere was great. Highly recommend for sunset dinner.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent sunset views!
This is definitely one of the best restaurants in Maui! My husband and I had an excellent meal here. The food and service was outstanding and the sunset views were amazing!

Cashew crusted mahi mahi was excellent! The view was beautiful. The scallops with lobster risotto was also yummy.

Sea View from Afar
The setting is very nice and quiet. This particular meal, there was a wedding party, but they were adequately separated from the main dinner crowd. We were seated just inside, but had eaten outside for breakfast on a previous day. Food and service were excellent. Surprised that this place isn't more popular. Nice that it provides a change to be off the beach, and away from the crowds. Still nice view of golf course and ocean from afar.

I went with my husband and kids (ages 10 and 13). This could have been a romantic spot, despite some families. I felt we were a bit casually dressed, but the staff was never less than gracious. We were seated at the corner table on the outdoor patio with the most tremendous view of palm trees around the golf course and the ocean just beyond, as well as Molokini in the distance. It was not long before sunset, so the view was especially good. And the dinner was delicious from start to finish. My husband and I had their signature cocktail, the Awapuhi, which was delicious. I don't remember many details of the food, but the lobster bisque and the crab dip stand out. Everyone loved their food, so I think it's unlikely you'll go wrong.

Great for a casual evening. Excellent food, good selection, quiet enough so you can carry on a conversation and enjoy the meal

The service and food was wonderful.
The service and food was wonderful. A perfect brunch location for early morning weddings on the beach of Maui. The drinks were tropical and the food was very tasteful and presentation was perfect. The steak and eggs were superb! The views were the best on the island even over Kapalua Plantation and great place for wedding pictures. I recommend it highly! Will return on future trips.

Great food and nice views
Very nice evening. This was our second time in as many years and it was a treat to be back. Food and service was excellant. Since they were closing to remodel the kitchen and would not be open again until after we left the island, we drove from the other side of Maui just to make sure we at here. We weren't disappointed. It was worth the 2.5 hours it took to get there and then back again. We enjoyed every bite of everything we tried. It was a most excellant evening out.

I went to Gannon's for my birthday dinner and it couldn't have been nicer. We were seated outside overlooking the sunset. Our servers were outstanding and the food was delicious. For my birthday they brought me a scoop of the best vanilla ice cream i've ever had!

Though the restaurant was not very crowded, we had a great meal sitting outside. Good food and staff

Dinner with the view!
Gannon's is my favorite place to eat!!I The food is a wonderful combination of everything you would expect on Hawaii with the very best of local ingredients and top shelf service. There is not a better view! Do not miss this quiet location to watch the sun go down and enjoy a wonderful meal!

Great as always
Every time we visit Maui we are sure to have dinner at Gannon's.

Great Restaurant - Great View
We had an excellent dining experience at Gannon's for dinner. This was our first dinner at Gannon's after having visited 2 years ago for breakfast. The evening started with a beautiful view of the ocean from the hillside which is breathtaking especially at sunset. Then Ashley took over as our waitress and provided top notch service and suggestions throughout. The meal was absolutely incredible with my wife having the daily catch (Mahi) with some great lemon rice and sauces. I had the braised short ribs which nothing short of the best I have ever had. The GM personally stopped by three times to deliver food, ask about our experience, etc.
From our perspective they scored a 10 out of ten!!

We went there for our anniversary last year and had a wonderful experience. It was the same this year. Server had no personality but other than that it was prefect.

Excellent Choice for South Maui
The atmosphere and food were both outstanding. The service was the best we've received anywhere that I can recall. Highly recommended.
