Took awhile to be greeted at 530 while three host/ess figured our reservations. Received warmth and smiles from majority of the staff. Multiple workers handling different tasks. Asked for a napkin three times from three different people finally got one. All three dishes were excellent the Ono special was a little too creamy but otherwise terrific. Very comfortable in space and was in and out in two hours.
Great food and service! They were super accommodating to us while dining with our one year old. We even got to meet the owner who was super friendly. The drinks and food were delicious! We always visit this place on our trips to Maui.
First time was wonderful and this time it was even better. The food is exceptional and the service extremely attentive
There was three of us and we each try each other’s entrees. We couldn’t decided who had the best dish. They were all delicious.
The Napoleon Sashimi is the best appetizer we have had in Maui.
Food is reasonable given the quality. The fresh baked rolls are a must. The Kalua pork wantons have great flavor. I had the pork chop that was cooked medium rare as I had ordered it. The bbq ribs were tender falling off the bone. Must get the pineapple upside down cake with vanilla ice cream was a perfect way to end the meal. Only issue was the noise level.
This is our fourth time going and I wasn’t particularly satisfied as I am have had better here. It was my birthday and I want to try something different so I ordered the duck, a bit dry but good not great. My husband ordered the crab pizza. Whoever thought of that pizza needs to nix it. It’s like having cream cheese on a pizza, not good. The wontons were great.
The service was great, as expected at those prices. Will try again next time stick to what we know taste good😞
The food and service was exceptional
We had a mix of appetizers they were really great the poke was fantastic.
The salads were good. I had the Ono it was amazing.
The food and service are excellent and we will continue to go back.
Just excellent food, perhaps the best on Maui. Lovely room, attentive service. Only issue is driving to a place where there are no car services and everyone is driving drunk
We had an enjoyable evening celebrating birthdays with old friends. Wait staff was excellent.
It was great. However, it has gotten pretty touristy. Enjoyed it more about 20 years ago...
Now we have a place in Maui rivaling Mamma's Fish House as our favorite restaurant. Food is AMAZING with lovely ambiance. Mamma's has great food with an amazing view, but the General Store has more variety, equal quality, more reasonably priced. Totally worth the drive....may go again before flight back to mainland. Yes, it's THAT good.
Excellent food and good variety. Priced competitively with other local premium restaurants. The back room is much quieter than the front room.
Excellent food and service in a great atmosphere.
The Lemongrass Ginger Frost drink was amazing. We had the lamb and the seafood curry as well as the pulled pork and goat cheese wontons. Everything was yummy!!
Had wonderful craft cocktails at the bar before dinner because we were early for our reservation. We started with the sashimi Napoleon, and the shishito peppers, both delicious.
For entrees, I had the szechuan salmon, very tasty, and my wife had the seafood coconut curry, also very good. We were too full to be tempted by dessert, but finished with coffee.
A nice rainy dinner out.
Nice place, good service and awesome food selection.
Service was fast, friendly, and they anticipated my needs. Food was delicious and i was happy with the portion sizes of each meal and appetizers.
We had the mothers day brunch. The prime rib was really tender. Too much use of Krab with a "K" instead of the real thing. Brunch was $50 which i felt was at the top of the scale for this menu.
Wonderful food. Unique items to try.
Food & Service was Excellent as Usual!!!
My husband and I had a lovely anniversary dinner here on our vacation to Hawaii. I’m vegetarian, and they have a separate veg menu that is truly excellent. The food was exquisite. Can’t wait to visit again.
Hands down, BEST dining on the island. Service was exceptional and friendly. Food was prepared perfectly. Great vegetarian menu too. Front start to finish, pure perfection.
We had a very enjoyable meal at Haliimaile recently. Our waiter was excellent, very engaging, very energetic and very informative. My first dish was a dumpling dish. My only negative comment was that I thought the dumplings were too heavily deep fried - they were crunchy as opposed to be soft with a light crunch on the edges. Unfortunately, the menu did not reference the fact they were deep fried. My wife had a house salad which was very nice. My main course lamb dish was excellent - it has been on the menu for 30 years with good reason. My wife’s main dish was the curry fish stew which was also excellent. We would go back to this restaurant again, one of the few restaurants in Maui that we tried and to which we would return.
Haliimaile General Store is one of our favorite destinations for a really good meal and I normally would give them a solid 5 stars.
BUT: I ordered the blistered semi -spicy peppers appetizer, and for a while that was the best of our 3 appetizers -- until I bit into the one ghost pepper among all the peppers. The waiter had told me there would be one, and that it could not be determined visually which of the many peppers on the plate that was. I thought it was a joke, since ghost peppers are so unbearably hot, that a restaurant wouldn't smuggle one into a "semi spicy" dish. I even like super spicy, but even I couldn't feel anything but a burn in my mouth for a good 5 minutes. No idea how a person who is sensitive to spicy food would have fared.
We had a lovely meal among old friends, and by the time of the dessert I had forgotten the incident. On the way home we wondered if the single ghost pepper is a standard - and very cruel - hidden ingredient in this otherwise phenomenal dish, or if it was a mistake the kitchen made and decided to serve it to me anyhow. Either way, it's not "pono" as the Hawaiians say.
Incredible delicious food! Best on the island!!
Delicious dinner in a lovely setting. Wait staff was attentive and informative. We thoroughly enjoyed our first, and we are hopeful not our last, dining experience at the General Store. The avocado tempura was unusual and wonderful with a touch of sweetness that worked perfectly. The seafood curry was unbelievably good and I would recommend it highly. I also enjoyed the presentation that included side dishes of cashews, toasted coconut and pineapple chutney. Finally, the warm pineapple upside down cake was perfect. The wine list is strong.
Chris is the best waiter in the world! He kept us entertained and provided amazing service! Everything was awesome... as usual!
The food and the service It’s always. The noise level makes it hard to visit while dining
Haliimaile General Stored was recommended to us and we are so happy we tried it! I had the seafood curry and it was great flavor, plentiful fish and veggies. My boyfriend got the opakapaka and it was also delicious. We loved the atmosphere - relaxed and friendly. Cocktails had their own twist - the one i tried was some sort of tropical punch with toasted coconut on the rim. There’s a small bar you can eat at as well. The prices were very reasonable. We would definitely return.
This is our third visit to this restaurant and never disappoints. Everything on the menu is fantastic and cooked and presented to perfection . It is almost an hour drive from both sides of the island but well worth the time
An awesome place for dinner. The food was fantastic with a very good menu. Drinks were excellent and original. Front area of restaurant noisy but tolerable. Decor was tasteful and authentic.
Great place! High recommended to put on everyone’s list of “Must Go” Maui Restaurant list!
Great meal, as always. I had a 6;30PM reservation for 3; arrived a bit early, but was able to be seated. I advised the hostess I was meeting a couple. At 6:45PM, I was concerned as this couple is never late for anything. The waiter and hostess stopped by twice to inquire about my guests. Finally, at 6:50PM, I called my guests. They were waiting outside on the front patio. They arrived at 6:30PM, gave my name and said they'd wait outside as the hostess said I had not arrived yet.
We’ve been here twice for lunch, and this time for dinner. Simply amazing! Dinner rivals Mamas Fish House!
Haven't been here in awhile and it was a good experience going back. Decor had been updated (paint, art) and service staff was far more attentive. Food was delicious and a varied menu. Still quite noisy, hard to hear others at a 4 person table. I would recommend.
Amazing food and friendly staff
We were visiting from Honolulu for the weekend, and wanted to dine there at least once since we hadn't been there for several years. We were able to get a dinner reservation on Friday, and had a wonderful dinner! The food was excellent, and the service friendly and attentive. Especially enjoyed the scallop and Hamachi carpaccio, crispy duck, and the vanilla bean ice cream and mango sorbet for dessert.
