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.

We had dined at Kimo’s years ago but couldn’t remember how we liked it. We returned this time with our kids with the promise of Hula Pie. Dinner was fine - our fish was tasty but small portions. My daughter ordered the ribs and they were flavored well but very tough. The kids meals are reasonably priced. Overall it was a “fine” experience, but far from the top restaurants we’ve visited on Maui.

We had a nice table right by the water with excellent service. Food is great but I think still with minor room for improvement. Location of the restaurant is amazing. Finally, recommend visiting at 6:45 or later as sun gets easy on you. Will visit again.

This was our one disappointment on the island during our trip. The prices were way too high for the small portions, ocean front or not. Nothing special except the hula pie. Never again.

The restaurant was very busy, as was our waiter . Our soups actually came out after our main course and they totally forgot my daughter's pasta ( they didn't forget to charge for it...but they did credit it) . Our bottle of wine was delivered to the table after over a 30 minute wait . Most of the food was actually good and the waiter was very nice . Hopefully just an off night for the crew . I would go back and give it another try .

The view is wonderful. Our waitress could not have been better. I ordered the shrimp and crab salad which was fine but there was not enough dressing and hard to mix if you wanted it mixed due to the flat, narrow plate it was served on rather than a bowl.

Portions are incredibly small for the price. I ate my fish in 3 bites. Tourist trap. So many better places in town, like Paia Fish Market or Lahaina Fish Co. Avoid Kimo’s.

The experience was amazing from start to finish. The view was wonderful and our waiter was great! The carrot muffin starter was delicious, and our server told us that the same local bakery had been supplying the carrot muffins for 40 years. They were phenomenal. We all ordered the fish and chips which was SO delicious. The tartar sauce was the best! Even though we were pretty full, we split a piece of Hula Pie, which was a dessert everyone should try at least once! We also drank local sodas with our meal that were refreshing. I would go back anytime!

We put Kimos on our not to miss list each yr we come to Maui however the food was sub par this year and will not hold it against them as it could be due to getting things back up post Covid. That said, our service was amazing and the atmosphere as always was spectacular!
