Great happy hour, the dynamite shrimp tempura and empanadas were awesome. Great service, definitely will return.
We’re locals and wanted to try out a neighborhood restaurant. Service was very slow and we were brought the wrong order. Once our food was brought out, it was bland. Maybe we ordered the wrong thing but didn’t think we could go wrong with fish. Atmosphere was nice with an ocean view. They took proper precautions with Covid rules so no issue there. I don’t think we’ll return as the food and service were just not good.
One of the few Maui restaurants that are open and have a good view.
They need to refresh their menu
Poorly staffed. Food average except for French onion soup which was great
The food and service was great! They have recently updated everything and it looked very nice.
Tried the Hawaiian Benedict. Smoked savory deliciousness. Could eat this one every day. Outstanding service. Haven’t had everything on the menu yet, but all the dishes we’ve tried are on point and delicious. This is our go to place for everything. Mahalo
Amazing food and service. Can’t wait to dine again. Hopefully you have the same awesome servers (Tyler) (Koa) when we get back to dining in at Lava Rock.
Recommended to other couples who will be visiting in June! Great food and drink and happy hour.
They really need to do something with the washrooms as they are in rough shape! Food was good and service was okay. Overall experience was good enough I would go back as they have a great happy hour
Even though Lava Rock was busy, we got delicious food and OUTSTANDING service from Tyler. Mahalo
We visited for the first time to watch an NCAA basketball game at 11 am. They had a table reserved in front of a tv but we sat at the bar. Tyler was great. The pancakes were very good.
Dinner was great
The staff was amazing. On task and the food doesn’t get better than Lava Rock. Delicious food and amazing server means we’ll be back again. Mahalo
We had a great meal, asked for a table with a view a d watched a beautiful sunset.
This place was a great find! Very good value for the happy hour menu, which runs from 3-6 pm. The portions were large and the quality of food was very good for the price. One of the best places we have went to for dinner in 3 trips to Maui.
Lava Rock is a neighborhood sports bar with great food. Yes, there is an elevator. It is on the second floor with a distant view of the ocean and palm trees. Nice sunset. They have a pool table and a bar with sports on many TVs. I must say the food was surprisingly good.. I had the featured NY steak. It came out on a sizzling platter with the best steak sauce ever. Dress casual, bring a hat and sunglasses for sunset and have a great time. It is a bit funky with great food. Interesting experience. I would go back.
Only place I go if I want consistently great food and outstanding service.
Mahalo for excellence in dining 😊
Had a great time with my party! Definitely great location to have a party
Food was good, once we Finally got service it was ok. We sat at table for 10 minutes after being seated before anyone even acknowledged us, 10 minutes later we finally had a drink, once we ordered food it was there in less than 10 minutes. Not sure we would go back or recommend
Good dinner experience one of the best restaurant in that plaza
Pub fare. Nice sunset view but service a little slow—burgers definitely not hot off the grill. However, nice cold drinks.
We have been to lava rock a couple times and every time we go we get delicious food with outstanding service. I love all the televisions that you can watch your favorite sports on. Lava rock is a hidden Gem 💎
Thank you so much for the review! We are very happy you enjoyed the food and service! We hope to see you again soon, Mahalo!
The Hawaiian burger was amazing! Loved the outdoor dining area as well. It was a great meal and our family would definitely like to return before leaving Maui!
Thank you for leaving a review! Please do come again and enjoy another burger! We appreciate you joining us for a meal during your visit to Maui and we hope you guys had a blast!
Food was good. Atmosphere was nice. 45 minutes to get our food and it wasn’t busy. We will think twice before we go here again.
Thank you for the feedback! We are sorry for the wait time! We try to Keep our service as quick as possible but it happens to the best of us! We hope to see you again soon!
We ate here for a Sunday breakfast/ lunch with 5 adults and a two and six year old.
This is a great spot for children with open are seating under a covered patio.
This is not gourmet restaurant by any means but just a nice spot for a casual meal. Service was a little slow but no big deal/
Valentines Day. Good food. Very good service!
Thank you so much for the review! We hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day and we hope to see you back soon!
Valentine’s Day reservation and I think they were short staffed. Slow drink service !!!! Food was pretty good.
We are very sorry you experienced slow service! We always try to deliver service quickly and efficiently and unfortunately it seems as we may have felt short on your visit. Please do come back and give us another try so that we can make it up to you! Mahalo for giving us a shot and we are happy you enjoyed the food!
Great Food, Great Service, Great Happy Hour Specials!
We watched the Superbowl here and it definitely made the experience more memorable - more so the excited crowd than anything else. Good local bar, with ample parking.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review! Please let us know how we may improve next time! Mahalo for joining us and we hope to see you again soon!
Great food and atmosphere.
We ate here our first night. The food was delicious, great service, nice views. It was so good that we decided to have breakfast there the next morning and it was delicious as well along with great service again. We will be going back there again for sure!
We have been there many times and the service and food has always been great. Great views at sunset and very comfortable setting.
Highly recommended! Food was excellent and the service was top notch!
It honestly depends on when you go for this restaurant. Had you asked me about our Christmas dinner and waitress, I would have given it 5+ stars. However, on New Years Day we were later in the day. It was busier, and the staff was not as attentive. The food was also not as good. Overcooked and dry. I would still recommend this place, but you should know it is hit and miss.
Went for dinner because the steak served on a hot slab looked cool. When we walked in it took them a few mins to greet us. 5 mins to seat us. 5 mins to get us menus, then awhile to get our drink orders and longer to get us drinks. We left before eating. We tried the $20 in drinks we ordered - they were all juice. Big letdown.
We sat for 10 minutes without water or being recognized. Our waitress passed the table twice during that time without an acknowledgment. We then waited 50 minutes for a simple poke bowl and loco moco.
Was able to get a table for 6 at last minute. Probably has a nice sunset but we ate too late. Drinks were a little pricey and food was OK. Enjoyed food and drink at other places more but I assume the view would make up for that, provided you get there by sunset.
Bar area/bathrooms needs to be redone.
The food was actually very good.
We sat in the deck and had a very nice dinner but we were scared walking up the stairs to the restaurant.
We had reservations. Got there and were seated. Waited 35 minutes and never got even saw a server. Got up and went next door to Three's bar and grill WITHOUT reservations...... Were immediately greeted, seated, and waited on within 5 minutes....... Food was out in less than 15 minutes and was great. After the great reviews we saw on Lava Rocks, we were all surprised on how everything went down. Maybe we just caught them on a bad night.
We are very sorry, the delay with everything, as you could observe, it was a day with a lot of rain and in the patio there were not all the tables available because of the rain, we had to make people wait and we were late in everything, we apologize, We only work with reservation on Christmas Day, and open table is organized by the tables and we were fine, but with the rain we could not give a good service
Reservations at 7:45. Seated at 8:00. We were left alone until about 8:30 nearly an hour after our reservations. We ordered both food drinks at the same time at the first appearance of a very sweet and very busy server. We got our drinks about 15 minutes later. No sign of food until 9:30 at which time they told two of our party of six that they ran out of rice as a side. The manager said the had more reservations than they anticipated but could not explain why they kept accepting reservations if they did not have the staff to support so many people. The wait staff were literally running through the restaurant, so it was not their fault. Huge management fail. Most of the food was ok, but the chicken was super dry and tough and essentially inedible. They did give us a discount on the meal due to the delay, but still charged for the chicken that was sent back. All on all, over two hours of waiting for one round of drinks and a disappointing meal. We would have walked out long before the end, but it was Christmas night and there was literally nothing else available. Believe me, we looked after about 45 minutes of waiting around.
