    Food was average at best. Shrimp in the shrimp salad had been frozen, thawed and totally tasteless. And what restaurant doesn’t have ANY freshly ground pepper cos this meal need something to help it!. And instead of bread they provide a sweet banana I think muffin - weird. Service was good.

    We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and the hostess on that night was kind enough to ask us if we waited a bit longer she would place us at a table next to the water. Good food, great view and ambiance, live music, relaxed vibe and great service. Delicious Prime Rib and Parmesan crusted Mahi Mahi with Mango Pono Pie, so good.

    Waited extra time for a beach front table and got an upstairs table- on the rail, but no water view. Disappointing. BUT. The excellent food made up for that, it was really great. Prime rib- the best!!

    This is a very friendly and accommodating restaurant with a fantastic seaside location on Front Street in Lahaina. The food was excellent, but the menu could be a little more extensive in its seafood offerings. When we first sat down, we were given a QR Code to access the menu with our smart phones. We were quickly provided printed menus when we asked for them. Just because you can do so many things with today's high-tech communication, etc. it doesn't mean you should. The Hula Pie made up for the QR faux pas.

    Yes, Kimo’s is touristy, but it’s not a tourist trap. We go there at least once a trip. The view is gorgeous, the food is good, and so are the drinks. Kimo’s is situated right on the ocean. We always ask to be seated outside on the deck by the bar in the open air. Even with a reservation, you may have to wait a while for the deck, but it’s worth it. Kimo’s has a full bar with many tropical drinks. Dinner has something for everyone—fish, chicken, and beef. The Cesar salad is delicious and comes with their carrot muffins. I had the coconut shrimp which were served hot and crispy. My husband enjoyed the prime rib, and our daughter loved her ahi tuna. Of course, you must have the Hula Pie for dessert. It is a fabulous slice of heaven with a chocolate crust, macadamia nut ice cream, fudge sauce, and whipped cream. One piece can serve the table. Kimo’s is a great place to experience aloha in Maui!

    They always have excellent fish here. Usually the beef is also fantastic but, on this particular evening, the prime rib came out extremely rare while the filet mignon was tragically overcooked. A waste of a fairly large amount of money. Service is always good and the location can't be beat.

    This restaurant is one of my all time favorites in Maui. I have been visiting Maui for forty years and have never been disappointed. Cocktails are excellent and if you like very cold drinks it is best to plan for some time at the bar. Drinks warm quickly when being delivered to table. I typically have one of the nightly featured fish dishes. Of course for dessert there is always the wonderful hula pie. One slice easily works for two.

    We sat so close to the ocean we were literally getting splashed by waves. That close might not be for everyone, but we loved it! Even saw a group of turtles swimming within 20ft of us. The service was fantastic and the food is so good we went a second time on our 6 day long vacation. Highly recommend!
