This has been a must visit for us every year to Maui. Excellent food, atmosphere and service. What was even more special this year was the amazing safety precautions they were taking for COVID-19. I must say even though we are older and "compromised" their protocols were above and beyond making us feel very safe.

One of the best meals we had during our two weeks in Maui! We shared the crab pizza appetizer and French onion soup. So good!! My husband had the short ribs and I had mac nut crusted Mahi. Both were fantastic! I had the chocolate Mac nut pie for dessert. Very rich, but delicious. I also had the Kafir lime/Coconut daiquiri. Probably my favorite cocktails on Maui. There is no view, but the food makes it worth the drive Upcountry. Can’t wait to go back!

We went to HGS twice, the first time just to experience the food. We loved it! Bev’s crab pizza and onion soup to start. My husband rated the onion soup as the best he’s ever had. Bev’s pizza is smooth and delicious- I would have liked it a little “crabbier”, but it was delicious as is. Then the ahi poke bowl for me. This combo is truly ono- the sauce on the ahi perfectly complements the tender fish. My husband had the burger, done just right.

We came back for lunch after a drive to Haleakala. Fish tacos for me with a pineapple and crunchy veg salsa on top. The fish was perfectly seasoned mahi-mahi. My husband had the barbecued ribs- falling off the bone tender.

The crowning touch was the chocolate macadamia nut pie. Decadent dark chocolate, lots of whole macadamias inside and a chocolate crust with a caramel coating. Heaven!

We loved the laid back atmosphere here and the friendly servers.

Friday night out for dinner is not the same when restaurants can only have 30% capacity now. Luckily that doesn’t affect the friendly and attentive staff and delicious menu.

The male manager was amazing. My fiancé had ordered a cocktail that was just not up to par and the manager came over because he noticed I wasn’t doing so great and took it off our tab (you were amazing). The waitresses were nice but the hostess was very unprofessional. The food was edible but nothing spectacular for the price point. It was just a bit disappointing that the ribs tasted just like the ones from Costco slathered in ketchup. I once order the crab pizza and soon found out they actually use the crab mix from Costco and put it on a piece of bread and call it pizza. I gave the place a chance because of the cute atmosphere but that was overwhelmed by my disappointment in the menu. I had signified that I was there on a special occasion but no such treatment was prepared. this is not the place to come for a special occasion

A $42 fish plate advertised as “the fresh catch of the day” was not accurate nor was it macadamia nut crusted. It was just Panko crusted unseasoned frozen mahi mahi.

Blacked Tofu was just seared unseasoned tofu... for $26 with giant chunks of carrots, green beans a s peppers. Could have been more carefully julienned.
Beer was room temp in a warm glass.

High end prices.. low end quality.
Bill $125 with tip for 2 people and I get better food everytime at Paia Fish Market or Whole Foods.

Won’t return.

Wanna support local but its hard to justify going back for that.

It was alright. Service kind of messed up our order through the night giving our order to the wrong person in our table. The flow of appetizers to our main entree and dessert was to long of a wait. Food was alright, the only 2 dishes that highlighted the night was their duck bun and korean braised short ribs. We had multiple food on the table but those 2 were the most memorable. It was our first experience for all of us dining there but I think we'll stick to our usual spots. It was cool trying someplace new though 🤷🏽‍♀️

We opt to sit outside bad mistake. It was cold, raining, crazy wind. It made for a very uncomfortable dining experience since we out in a tent. People were covered in blankets and freezing.
The food was mediocre. While I’ve eaten here several times since I live right down the street the food was nothing to write home about. We had the seafood pizza. Can someone please tell me what was on that? It tasted like cream cheese with some crab and other chopped seafood. It’s not a good mix. Why not try something like shrimp, crab and lobster with mixed greens baked on the crust. It taste way better without all the cheese.
The coconut curry was the other dish we had. If you were trying for a Thai twist maybe a little lemongrass and lime would work. We also had the ahi salad, ok it was decent but not great. There was no dressing to speak of on it so I had to ask for some more. The only really good thing was our waitress. She was attentive, sweet and very obliging.
While we are desperately in need of good restaurants here on Maui we went to HM general store because in the pass we have been given great food and a great service. It really bums me out when I spend that kind of money and know I can do better at home.
Better luck next time I guess!

Long time great restaurant. Now working hard to delivery a wonderful experience though very challenging. Spacing, service, ambience alL nicely done. Reduced menu is good, but down a notch from pre pandemic times. More fresh fish options is probably beyond already heroic performance. Thanks for coming back. Highly recommended as part of the heart and sole - pono - of Maui

Was disappointing compared to many prior visits. Seated in back room which seemed like a storage closet. Food and drink were no where near the previous quality. 4 people $300 with a tip and never once did a manager even ask if all was well. This was our 2nd recent visit last week we ate with friends and had an even worse experience so I felt it was time to say something! We live nearby and want to return so please put someone on the floor to get the previous quality back!

We so enjoyed eating "outside" in the large tent with the very tall Christmas tree. We hope you will maintain this tent for the future.
As always, the food was so very good. The staff were superb, remembering me by name and singing Happy Birthday to me.
Highly recommend.
