So far it was the best restaurant in Maui we've been to. Every dish was good including desserts.

Great food, great location, and great service. It got pretty noisy when it was busy, but it was still a fun environment.

My wife and I were there for our anniversary. The place was crowded being Valentine's Day. Fortunately we had an Open Table reservation and were seated immediately. The calamari appetizer was disappointing. Four pieces of calamari does not equate to an appetizer @ $12. The main course was the fish of the day Opa served baked Kimo style which was very good. The waitress brought us a huge piece of Hula Pie for dessert "on the house" to celebrate our anniversary which was a nice touch. Overall a good experience and we would return.

The hostess on Valentines Day went out of her way to reseat our party of 6 to a quieter location. We appreciated her cheerful and eager attitude to help make our experience much more enjoyable. Thank you.

One of our party’s steak was over done, it was replaced with a tough steak. Nothing else was done to make it better. The food was expensive but the service at the bar was excellent.

While the ambience may have worked on a nice day we were there during storms and floods. It was dark and somewhat cold. Food and service were marginal.

Food and service were great. One of our friends wore their Kimo sweatshirt as she thought you got a free Kimo Hula pie. The waiter acknowledge it but still charged us for her hula pie?? Other than that experience was great

We LOVE Kimos and have never had an issue, until Saturday night. Our waiter didn’t seem to understand English very well (which meant our order was incorrect), the weather was terrible which seemed to cause the staff to be unsure of what to do and the place was really just a cluster. Like I said, this is out of the ordinary to have such a horrible experience. We will try again :)

A great place we come every time we’re in Maui. It was packed but we had a quiet table overlooking the water. The band wasn’t too loud. We weren’t rushed to get out. It was a very relaxed dinner. Two thumbs up for the Hula Pie. Great for sharing.

We love Kimo's and while we made reservations for 6:30 we showed up a bit early and had to wait for almost one hour for our table. While we were less than satisfied …..once we got seated in a nice table on the lower level we had a wonderful dinner and our service was great. It's a busy restaurant and you will wait for your table but it's worth it!

reservations for 6pm. seated promptly with a nice sunset view. Our server was friendly & helpful.
the starters were very good. Cesar salad and the best seafood chowder i have had in a long time.
My wife ordered the fish & chips, good. Our guest had the ribs and really enjoyed them.

I ordered the coconut encrusted marlin. It came coated with coconut and a large dollop of hot sauce.
It tasted like a hot coconut. did not eat it. No taste of a fish dinner at all.

Ended the dinner with their special Kimo pie. Very tasty but needed 3 spoons to make a dent in it.
Will go back again.

The food was outstanding and was prepared the way we expected. The service was very friendly without being pushy. We were fortunate to be seated with a clear view of the ocean which added to the ambiance. Wide variety of menu items, and the seafood was excellent. I will keep this location in mind when returning to the island.

Excellent food and atmosphere! We liked it so much we went two nights in a row. Try the Kimos style mahi mahi or the Coconut marlin. Lots of local veggies to go with it. Top it off with a hula pie (free on your second visit). Seafood dining with an ocean view!

Kimos has always been one of my favorite restaurants on Maui. I felt a little disappointed this time. The service we had was not up to what it always had been and it seemed as if you were more rushed and the little extras it seemed you used to get (rolls while you wait, hula pie coupons for return visits, etc.), were not there anymore. I still enjoyed it just not as much as in years past.
