Service was so so, the server appeared to be bored and disengaged. Food was below average for two orders, burger and salad with fish but the special was very good! You were out of Brussel sprouts and the broccoli side was salty and awful. Overall not a good time.

Not a very big food selection and quite pricey. No chicken main dish offered.
Waiter was nice/helpful.
Jalepeno mashed potatoes were delicious!
Skip the lobster deviled eggs.

Beautiful location (Ka’anapali beach); great service, amazing Mai Tai, appreciated the parking validation and friendly wait staff. Entertainment was a little too loud for conversation and found fries and pulled pork quite salty for my taste, however it was very tender. Will definitely make a return visit before my time in Maui is over. Need another one of those Mai Tais!

Excellent food, ambiance was good too. Famous Mai Tai is good but I think it's a little too sour with the passion fruit foam.

Amazing meal! Our waitress Erica was so kind and helpful and made our night even better! Happy hour deals are well worth it and we loved the ukulele player!

Excellent venue for Happy Hour or dinner! We've been here multiple times when visiting Maui, and we also like the Monkeypod in Wailea and on al the other islands. The servers and other employees are friendly, and very good at providing timely and efficient service even though the place is very busy. I would highly recommend any of the Merriman resturants if you haven't tried them before. Bon apetit'

Happened to hit happy hour. I don’t drink but appetizers and pizzas were discounted and very good. Also tried the Restore juice specialty it was very good too. I look forward to coming back and trying a full blown dinner.

The staff was terrific. The day manager, Kinsey, made super recommendations for our dinner. We had the seared ahi, and the pumpkin pasta appy. The evening manager, Tracy, helped us fix a problem with a gift certificate. The waitress was also very attentive to our needs. We had a great meal and will return!
