Nothing special - in a strip mall. Food was ok but nothing great. Mama's take out BBQ in the same shopping center was better and cheaper.

Fantastic casual dinner for a family. Great service and excellent food and drinks. The baby back ribs were “fall off the bone“ tender and the smokehouse burger was amazing. We went at “happy hour” and enjoyed a nice selection of IPA and wine for $5 a glass. We will definitely come back.

This is a new place in Napili, the BBQ pork was excellent with a nice smokey flavor, though called pulled pork it was actually bite size pieces. The chopped brisket is excellent and available as sliders, making for yummy appetizers. The service is good, the portions are more than ample and the sweet potato fries an excellent option. The blue cheese dressing was very watery so not a good option for dipping the fries into, the tarter sauce would be better. The BBQ sauce on the table had a good flavor with just enough bite to be able to enjoy it without having a moment of fire in your mouth. The fish n' chips was cooked in a light tempura style beer batter and was excellent, with fresh local fish of the day. You do need to ask before ordering since the fish varies, the night we were there it was Ono which is more of a steak consistency fish then a soft flaky fish as most people are used to. Reasonable corkage policy and on Tuesday nights all wines on the menu are 1/2 price which is a great deal, if you don't mind a limited selection of wines. The menu isn't big, they focus on beer more than wine. For beer lovers, this is a good place. Don't let the name mislead you, this is a good restaurant and one that is reasonably priced compared to others in the area and give you a lot more. Recommended without any question. Though the night we were there, they weren't that busy at 5:30, reservations might be recommended for later in the evening.

Nice diversion from typical island cuisine. The baby back ribs are fine however the brisket didn't impress like it did on our last visit a few months ago. The fat cap was not removed or at least trimmed before the brisket was chopped and to compensate (hide the fat actually) they drowned it in bbq sauce. Big change from our last visit when the chopped brisket was actually the standout part of the meal. Portions are large but that didn't really matter since about 75% of each piece of chopped brisket was a hunk of fat...smoked fat but still fat nevertheless. Sides are O.K. and the salads are definitely large enough to share.

Dinner with a group of 8. Table was ready upon early arrival which was nice. Prices were good considering the area. Food was good. Service a little slow but not much to complain about. I’d visit again

Loved the garlic prawns (and added the spicy BBQ sauce that's on the table-yum! Instead of ordering the BBQ prawns, so the best of both worlds) some of the most tender beef brisket I've ever had; great tender baby back ribs too & the $10 mai tai with the dark rum floater was yummy! I can see why it's a local fav! Not much of a view of course, but open airy casual local.

As a resident I’ve had the opportunity to eat here several times. Unfortunately the food and service are getting worse. The food they are producing is average at best.
As for the service, we’ll you better lower your expectations . Good place to take young kids who want to make noise and who don’t care about the quality of good there eating.
I️ would not recommend if your looking for good food and good service !!

We Had a mushroom Swiss bacon burger and a smokehouse burger. Both were tasty. The cornbread side was sweet and tasty and almost a dessert quality. Sweet potatoes fries were good to. The mai tai was decent and the deschutes fteah squeezed beer was as expected...good. We enjoyed our dinner and there was a steady stream of people who came in after us. It is mainly open air dining with more a a warehouse feel. The servers were nice and adequately attentive. We would go back when we are back in Maui.

Best burger we have had while here. Ribs were very good, only downside was no view of the beach, but the food makes up for it.

Outstanding BBQ and Pizza...We started with the BBQ sampler. The portions were large, the various meats were tender and the two BBQ sauce options were unique and delicious. The sampler was so much food that we ended up taking the Purple Pig Pizza with grilled chicken home with us. It was delicious as well. The restaurant was open and airy...the service was excellent.

Service was a little slow. The appetizers of onions rings and calamari were very good, but then it took a long time to get entrees. My son's risotto was not cooked all the way through and my husband's pork ribs definitely could have been more tender. It was convenient if you are staying at Napili Kai and the food was certainly decent, just not superb.

Sunday evening the place was not very busy. Our table of 4 waited an hour for our food and 2 of 3 pulled pork sandwiches were cold, rolls/buns were hard and the fries cold. 1 plate sent back and new plate was hot. 4th person order wings and said they were hot and 'tasty'. We will not go back nor give favorable review.

We went two nights in a row. We enjoyed the simple selection. It was very reasonably priced. It was a pleasure after eating at many overpriced places in Maui. It is a real change of pace.

Food was below average. I ordered baby back ribs, and although there was a lot of food, there was hardly any taste at all. The others I was with ordered 2 different pizzas. Both had a couple of pieces each and said it was like eating flat bread with bland cheese. Very little sauce or taste. We all took left overs home and ended up throwing them out

This restaurant is okay for a quick bite but not very cozy - sports bar type atmosphere.

We went when it was an off time to be eating. So it was nice and quiet and the service was great. I imagine when the place is full it could get quite noisy
