We love coming to Hali'imaile General Store for lunch and dinner! The food and service was excellent...but just a bit disappointed in the chicken entree for dinner. The sauce is not as good as it was when it was lemony! Please change it back! Otherwise, definitely in our top 3 restaurants for an outstanding dining experience.

Such a great restaurant. Unassuming to look at from the outside, but quaint. Service wonderful and timely. Good had great flavor and appeal. I suggest the macadamia nut crusted Mahi Mahi. Very good! A little noisy if you are seated by the bar. But there are other areas if you want quieter - just ask! Food - I felt was quite reasonable.

This beautiful and historical restaurant resonates positivity, lightness, and tradition. This is reflected in the brilliant dishes, the upbeat and friendly staff, the high ceilings, all that gorgeous original art, and, most importantly, in the satisfaction of the guests. If you'd like a quieter table, request to sit in the back room. I have to admit I have only one complaint, and it is the prices. As a North Shore Maui resident who dines out regularly and lives within 5 miles of this restaurant, I estimate I would at least quadruple my annual visits to Haliimaile General Store if the prices were 20 percent lower. So for my routine weeknight dining, I find myself in Paia or Makawao where two can dine with wine for around $100, while saving the $200 bill at Haliimaile for those semi-annual special events.

We first ate here back when the road on which it is situation was a dirt road. Now the streets are paved but the food remains top notch. The cocktails are well done. The fresh fish entree's are delicious, though I think it may be time to revamp the accompaniments (the potatoes are somewhat boring). The appetizers are superb. The real stars are the desserts- wow. The signature pineapple upside down cake is decadent and the best I've had anywhere. The island coconut cake is also wonderful. The coffee is a special house blend that is fantastic. Service is great. The atmosphere is fun. All in all, this remains one of the very best restaurants in Hawaii and worth the hour trip from kaanapali to enjoy it!

Always one of our mainstay destinations on Maui.
Everything about this place is excellent. Bev and Joe are the consummate hosts and the spirit of Aloha resonates from everyone they employ.
The setting and ambiance cannot not be exceeded.
If you are fortunate enough to meet and have a brief conversation with Joe Gannon, the Rock and roll legend, it will make your day.

The Bar was hopping tonite. For a Sunday the place was energetic. Service is tops here start to finish. The menu compliments the islands’ farm to table sustainability and everything is well prepared and served. Tried the Duck Bao appetizer, wow, amazing. Along with the Crab Pizza and Caesar salads.......and cold beers. UpCountry heaven.

I’ve definitely had better meals there. On this visit, I had the Shrimp Scorpion. This dish just didn’t go together. Sometimes you mix different flavors and get something splendid. Not so much with this dish. The server was attentive but not very helpful. She said everything is good. The dessert was below average as well. Love in a pot was just meh. My husband had ahi and liked his meal very much. I will go back and hope to have a different server and will order something different. I think my favorite part of the meal was my cocktail which was a Lemongrass vodka drink.
