Date night! Asked for oceanside dining. Had to wait extra but totally got what I envisioned. Tag team service. Well done! Food was great (mostly). In order of favorites: filet, beet salad, carrot rolls, veggies and pita, prime rib.

Totally worth the trip/cost! Great place!

One of the better waterside restaurants in Lahaina It's been around for years and survived covid closing for 7 months. Food was much better than expected, baked mahi mahi was really excellent. My martini was meh. Wine selection limited but prices fair considering Hawaii.

We have visit Kimo’s every time we have come to maui. This our worst experience. My wife and I both order steak and ask for her to be medium well and both times they brought back almost raw. If appears the chef either doesn’t know what medium well is or didn’t care. I ate my meal and we left. More concerning is not one manager can out to talk to us. All we heard from the server is we will take it off the bill.

Went for special occasion. They made sure we got a table with a view of the ocean and complimentary Hula Pie for dessert. Typical dinner prices for Maui.

Honestly, Kimo’s is very much overrated. While the ambience is decent being right on the beach, it’s very noisy with so many tourist trying to get a glimpse of the sunset. The food was meh! The prime rib was very chewy and under seasoned. Food is very unimaginative and good for the McDonald’s tourist crowd.

Anniversary dinner with family so they gave us a free hula pie. The only downside was the medium prime rib I ordered was a little more red than I like which made it chewy. My bad. Everything else about the evening was spot on. Device was impeccable. The sunset was stunning for pictures.

Service was great. Setting was great. One meal was average. The other meal was good. We ordered drinks and while they were good, they were not as described. We even checked with our waitress to be sure we were brought the right drink. Overall, it was too pricey for what we got.

It was a bit touristy and not very authentic/local in our opinion. Food was as you would expect for a tourist trap. Deep fried, store bought sauces etc. The view was lovely but there are many along the front with the same. Service was fine

Fantastic view at sunset! Our waiter and other help staff were so nice and prompt! Loved the "Kimo Style" Mahi Mahi... highly recommend! There's a reason it's been on the menu so long.

Our first time to Kimo’s. We were vacationing in Wailea. I had prime rib which was ok. Mashed potatoes were great. My husband loved the fish tacos. We were seated upstairs near a window, but it did not seem to have the same ambiance as the first level. Service was excellent. Would definitely return if I was staying at a nearby resort but would probably not drive from Wailea.
