Mama's Fish House is a converted beach house in a coconut grove on a secluded white sand beach. Inside, hinged windows open to let in the trade winds and Polynesian artifacts and original oil paintings decorate tropical hardwood walls. The rooms are filled with spectacular flower arrangements and tapa print cloths cover the tables. Open air dining is equally exciting, and everyone enjoys watching the windsurfers performing offshore.

Always the best when it comes to customer service and food. Great selection of entrees, including non fish dishes for those that prefer beef. If they don't have your desired drink on menu they'll still make it. We've been lucky enough to have Epps as our waiter on last couple visits. He knows the menu well and is one of the best when it comes to providing service!!

We felt so lucky to be able to get a last minute dinner reservation the day of our visit, as I had tired booking months in advance and no choices but mid afternoon. Would've been worth mid afternoon and rearranging our plans for the day, as it's that good. We were especially lucky to have Brad (from Iowa :-) ) as our waiter, as he truly made our experience above excellent. We have our 11 and 13 year old with us and he went above and beyond suggesting in making suggestions for my picky daughter that is not a seafood lover and trying to help us avoid getting her the filet steak, which she ended up getting and not leaving a bite on the plate. The food is hard to top, and we have eaten at some of the top restaurants in places we have visited. Mama's is not to be missed during your visit to Maui --boom in advance. Try to read the history of Doris and Floyd on their website before you go -- knowing the background of how they started makes it more special when you see the place.

We came here for dinner while on our honeymoon based on multiple recommendations from friends and it lived up to all expectations. The service was amazing, food was outstanding, and just a truly great experience. Thank you to the entire team at Mama’s for making this a great end to our 2nd day here on Maui!

We had the best time and we’re well taken care of. Our server was excellent and wasn’t annoyed with our decision to order all the appetizers as small plates as opposed to full meals and in fact recommended the order in which we consumed our meal. all the food was interesting and delicious. I can not praise this place enough. it was amazing.

My last evening in Maui was spent here. My server was wonderful. I did overhear other servers at tables around mine getting detailed descriptions of each menu item, whereas I did not. I had the Crab Cakes to start, Ahi for the main, and Creme Brûlée for dessert. My server recommend the Ahi, and all my courses were incredible. Although the creme brûlée was the best I’ve ever had, it was a pretty large portion for such a rich dessert. Would’ve been great for sharing though. My seat was right in the centre of the open windows overlooking the beach. I also appreciated the valet parking and use of the private beach. Great value. My bill was $150 with the tip which I thought was reasonable for for level of preparation, portion size and taste of the food. When I go back to Maui, I will definitely return to Mama’s Fish House.

We were there for lunch celebrating an anniversary. We had a nice table right next to the window facing the ocean. We enjoyed the shrimp won-ton appetizer to start. Jumbo shrimp, tempura battered, delicious! I had the stuffed fish and my wife had the Ono. Both were very light and flaky fish that were mild in fish flavor. We always make it a point to come to Mama’s each time we visit Māui. It’s never disappoints and is a favorite meal from our trip.

We dined at Mama's last year for my husband's birthday- we were so impressed we decided to bring my mother for her 70th birthday this year. Unfortunately this experience differed vastly and turned out to be a huge disappointment - I blame it on the terrible service we received from our waitress. She was completely unhelpful and was clearly uninterested in doing her job. When you are paying the kind of money Mama's charges, you expect a high standard of service, you certainly do not expect a condescending waitress who we hardly saw and who could not even be bothered asking how our meals were. I was taken aback when she told me they could not substitute the entree side dishes with a simple salad - even the most basic establishments will make this concession for dietary restriction. Instead, it was suggested I pay for a starter salad and have some fish added to it for full menu price. By the way, the romaine salad was bland and uninspired. In the end the tip we left was a hard pill to swallow - she deserved $0, but the other staff members would have been deserving of something. Maybe our waitress was having a bad day, unfortunately she made sure we did too.

We were visiting Maui over our 29th anniversary. We went to Mamas Fish House on a recommendation from a friend. We could only get a reservation at 845pm or 2pm. On hindsight, I might have chosen the afternoon meal over the late meal, just to enjoy the scenery. Everything from check in to,the service was just awesome. The drinks, the food, the ambience the service, it was just wow after wow after wow. Can’t recommend this place enough. We arrived a bit early for our reservation and took a few minutes to read about the story and history of Mamas Fish House. That made the experience even more enjoyable. We will definitely come back. It is expensive, $300 for two of us, but it was worth it!

Everyone is very kind and accommodating. The valet and hostess were very friendly.

We were given a beautiful table with a view, with a card and lei. Thank you.

We had a friendly server, but he spent much of our time talking to the table next to us. Conversations were very long. Had to ask another server for something.

Prices seemed higher than we’ve seen in the past, but the food was great.

We came in before our reservation and went to the bar. The staff was very attentive and found us some seating where we ordered our drinks. We were impressed by the attention. We ordered our drinks, but our table opened up and we seated. Our drinks were brought to our table. I ordered "Mama's stuffed Fish"... which is one of the most popular items on the menu... it's so good, my date ended up with half my meal... so be warned. lol We finished with the amazing "Black Pearl" dessert... amazing. This has been rated the top Sea Food restaurant in the USA. They deserve the rating. The service, ambiance and food were excellent. Enjoy.
