Wonderful and affordable place to dine with open air seating. Some of the best fresh fish, ceviche, and Mai Tai’s we’ve had in Maui. Service was excellent.

Great service by Shawn - food was excellent. Expensive - yes; but then everything at the Kaanapali resort area is expensive. Excellent sunset views - will come back the next time in Maui.

We were disappointed that we could not get the fish tacos for dinner as we have every other time we have been there. I know it has to do with the downstairs patio being closed, but still a major disappointment. The ribs in the BBQ dinner were fantastic, but the chicken was bland. The hula pie was wonderful, as always. We will not be returning for dinner while we are on Maui this time, but we might drop in for lunch when we can get the fish tacos.

Great location and view! Food was really good, but portions were on the small side. Service was good, but felt a little rushed. Would definitely go back again!

Spent $160 for bar food. Horrible service and attention. My steak was not ‘medium well’ it was bloody and the waitress never came back to ask how it tasted. Flagged someone else down. She took it back with everything else on my plate and 15 min later didn’t come back with my food /steak. This was at 4:15 pm- not prime time busy. It took 30 min to get my meal back and at this point I had lost my appetite. I fed my lobster tail to the sea and it was a horrible meal for our 20th wedding anniversary. They didn’t do anything for that either -probably because the waitress was too busy talking to the couple across us who ordered a $75 bottle of wine. Stay away and go to Merrimans instead.

Made us wait too long
We did arrive before reservation time and checked in
They said they would try to get us a table early but it didn’t work

Made reservations through Open Table app. Thought reservation was for the outdoor / beach area. Turns out the outdoor area was closed for some reason. Ended up eating upstairs in the nicer dining area. Food was good. More expensive than had planned based on the outdoor area being closed but the ambiance was nice and the food was good.
