We’ve been coming here for 25 years. Still maintains a high standard. This time had onion soup and calamari for starters, both very good. The soup comparable to any at a good French restaurant, and the calamari lightly breaded and fried to a perfect doneness. The mac-crusted and steamed catches of the day (mahi mahi , monchong) were cooked lightly and the flavours were not overpowered by the sides or crab sauce. The green curry seafood plate is still a strong must-try. The only plate in slight need of improvement was the chocolate love-in-a-jar, which came out a little too thick and dry. This was the sole reason for less than perfect food stars. The General Store remains our go-to restaurant on Maui.

Three of us had an early dinner before getting on a flight to leave Maui. Each dish was very good specially liked the Sashimi Napoleon. Loved the wasabi sauce. We loved the upsides down pineapple cake. Recommend this place highly after landing at the airport and before leaving the island. Great start and finish

I was shocked and disappointed to see a two percent kitchen surcharge. I have never seen that on a check, and I have eaten at many fine restaurants. It was a real turn off and made me not want to return. Are the chefs not being paid enough? Three of us had $44 entrées plus salad, dessert and coffee. Plus a 20 plus percent tip. That seems more than adequate for the meal we had. I think you should rethink the 2% kitchen surcharge. it seems too nickel and dime. Although I love the food, and always have, unless that policy changes I will feel comfortable recommending the restaurant or continue my patronage.

Made this reservation for the last evening we were on Maui. What a great send-off! Our server, Chris, was awesome! Very attentive and just very pleasant and cheerful which was exact opposite of our breakfast experience in Kihei that morning. We shared the popcorn shrimp, Caesar salad, paniolo BBQ ribs meal, and pineapple upside down cake. Was the perfect amount for the 2 of us. I had the mai-tai which was excellent! The atmosphere is relaxed and casual, nothing stuffy or uptight about it. Will definitely add this to the “rotation” for future visits to Maui.

Hailiimaile General Store is in an interesting building with a pleasant atmosphere. The building itself is a great concept-- an updated old store space that now houses a good restaurant with strong chef leadership in the person of widely acclaimed Chef Bev Gannon. Our party of four enjoyed our dinners of excellent fish, salads, & desserts. Hailiimaile is not a store. It's all about food. The only downside was that we had reserved for 5:00, opening time, because we were driving from quite a distance away & had to estimate our arrival time. We actually arrived 15 minutes early & could see people at the bar inside. One member of our foursome checked to see if the restaurant was open, & was told we could come in. When we got drinks at the bar, we asked if we might take them to our table & stated that we understood dinner service would not begin until a few minutes later at 5. We were refused that option. It simply seemed inhospitable. Otherwise, the visit was a nice experience & I would return.

It was a very enjoyable evening. It was my hubbys birthday and he enjoyed it. The duck/bun appetizer and the sashimi salad are "CHOKE ONOLISCIOUS". Only negative areas were the lamb was sweeter than usual (he did not care for the amt of sweetness) and I asked 2 diff people for another drink but it was finally ordered and delivered by the 3rd person. Overall thank you for a very enjoyable evening with my handsome birthday guy.

Great service from our server Aran. Only problem was our entrees were very delayed to our table and were standard menu items with no modifications. Food was clearly outstanding but having a very long wait between salads and entrees is not what we would expect from a restaurant of this caliber. The server provided us many apologies and brought us two deserts.

We absolutely loved our dinner at Haliimaile General Store on our first evening of Maui trip, and were made to feel very welcome. The restaurant is farm to table, and everything we ate was simple and delicious. When the vanilla cream soda was not available, the bartender came over and offered to make a homemade lemongrass soda. It was so refreshing, and tasted like lemon meringue. The poke was spectacular. The setting is beautiful, and the drive there -up some curving roads with a brief rain shower off the mountains added to the magic. There is a glass blowing studio across the street, and many examples of their beautiful glass art in the restaurant. I keep wanting to go back for lunch to get the pineapple upside down cake, and to visit the glass studio.
