Reservations were on time. Some guests at the bar over powered our table. The food was very good, as advertised. The Pineapple Upside Down dessert was excellent! Overall the experience was good and what we have come to expect.

This dinner was a celebration for my niece, Lottie Barton, who ran the Maui Marathon that morning, placing fourth woman overall. Chris was our server and elevated our celebratory gathering with his enthusiasm and excitement. He is an excellent server and never disappoints us. He has vast knowledge about the menu and has the skill to suggest wines to compliment the food. The food was fabulous, as always! The experience was superb! Mahalo!

The best Calamari appetizer on the island. The entire staff is friendly and attentive. Portions are generous from appetizer to dessert, you will leave full. Bar seating is a good way to have a casual experience, meet new people and good conversations.

Awesome food, great service . Got there earlier than our reservation time but they were able to accommodate us at that time. Curry dish and salmon dish were outstanding, not our first time there, we trytKeit to the general store each visit to Maui. Always had a great meal, never disappointed, even the cost is reasonable!

We have visited Haliimaile yearly for 20 years and this was the first time we were disappointed with the food. The Napoleon Sashimi was excellent and the standard crab cake pizza not as good as previous.
The house salad not the usual we have had and the different ingredients were not as tasty as before.
The most disappointing were the lamb chops for the entrée. We have ordered them yearly and this time they were 60% fat and bone and only 40% meat. Only 2 chops served as opposed to the 4-6 as a rack.
The staff offered to provide a different dish but we did not wish to have more food. The restaurant did not charge for this course.
The catch of the day was prepared steamed with accompanying sides both of which had no taste and were disappointing.
The lilikoi cream brulee was excellent. Overall the menu has been very good but failed to meet their high standard. The menu items are very expensive.

It is an interesting place with all the wall decor and other knickknacks on the display shelves. I like the outdoor feel without being outdoors. It is loud because of how the place is built, but I think there's a back room where it's more private and quiet. Chris our server was really personable and most of the wait staff had a smile on their face. They were very attentive. A bit pricey, but worth it. Food was tasty and the desserts were amazing! We'll definitely come back!

Ah, so lucky to be staying up the road from this place! There’s a reason it’s made a bunch of “best of” lists. Great food, great service. We were on an anniversary trip and they even gave us a complimentary “anniversary” dessert. Be warned: the portions—especially the steak—are adequately large, so if your stomach is a bit smaller and/or if you’re traveling and don’t have the capacity to take home leftovers, consider getting a few apps and splitting an entree. But the food is top-notch and the atmosphere is very cool—a real treat!

Our waiter Tony was inattentive and a bit arrogant and took way too long to bring us our check. While the burrata was amazing, the Maui Onion soup was lukewarm and the Paniolo Ribs were dried out and the BBQ was unappetizing. All in all a very disappointing meal.

The duck was exceptionally tasty the only thing that my disapproval is that my food was all swimming in the delicious sauce that came with the duck it didn’t look very appealing, everything tasted like the sauce the
celery root purée and my green beans I had to ask for extra sauce and then I got charged for it I wanted extra sauce to be able to dip my duck in.. The waiter didn’t come back to ask us if we wanted any more drinks I would’ve loved to of had another glass of wine my husband a martini, we had to ask the waitress that was busing if she could please bring us a dessert menu the waiter seem to be kind of all over the place except at our table

Really enjoyed returning to the HGS after many years. The restaurant still has a wonderful, relaxed island atmosphere and the old general store still creates a homey setting. Service was excellent and timely. The shrimp popcorn with 3 different dipping sauces was a tasty appetizer. I thoroughly enjoyed the blackened ahi entree. Our guests enjoyed their meals as well. Beware that meals are pricey, but we would not hesitate to return.

Perfection in every sense that I hope for from a dining experience. Locally grounded with history built into its design. Creative fusion & Hawaiian culture blended into a high touch menu. Premium service with care and the human touch. A great soundtrack (90’s!) and open yet intimate environment for seating. Loved it in every way. And oh yeah, GREAT PORTIONS. Bang for your buck in every way, a true classic.

Four Entrées ordered, two came out then the third and waited for the fourth instead of all being served together and it wasn't a busy night. After getting our dinners they forgot the au jus for my prime rib special and brought it after I started eating. The prices are high food is nothing special, my green beans were tough, my mother in laws cole slaw was warm and tasteless. I don't see why people give this place such good reviews.
