Walked over to the restaurant and were greeted by two guys who were happy to see us, not just the normal greeting.

The restaurant open air and had a very relaxing three person band playing cover tunes in their own style.

Fried pickles were unlike what we are accustomed to, lightly coated and flavorful. I had the wings and Brussel Sprouts and would do both again in a flash.

Good place to go and have a beer, be appreciated that you are there and listen to some music.

We walked here from our resort and were so happy we did. The food was out of this world - both in terms of quality and quantity. The staff was attentive and the live music just added another fun dimension to the whole experience.

Great little spot for casual food and terrific sunset views at dinner. Very friendly staff, nice selection of local and imported beers, and good comfort food. It’s tucked away near the entrance to Wailea Grand Champions so watch for the sign and walkway.

Early Friday night dinner at around sunset 🌅. We had the flatbread appetizer which was very good and we both had the mahi salad. The mahi-mahi salad was really a very tasty piece of fish with a mountain of one kind of greens next to it. So, all good except the mountain of greens was too much and uninspired.

We had a fancy cheeseburger and pesto alfredo pasta with salads. The salads were fresh and crisp and the entrees were great. The burger far surpassed Cheeseburgers in the Wailea Shopping Center. The open air setting above the Wailea Tennis Club is delightful and the views are spectacular. An excellent choice for a relative inexpensive dinner in Wailea.

We went here on our last night in Maui, Valentines Day, and the place was basically empty. We did have decent food and service but the place was not clean and was 90% empty. Not much ambience. We had been there a few years ago when I think it was called Joe's. That is why we went back because that time the place was vibrant and the food excellent. I will not go back.

Went on a Saturday night and they had a 2 person band singing that was great. The food was excellent, presentation and value very good. The service was excellent. It an open air atmosphere, casual dining and I could see watching some sports and just kicking back with friends over a few drinks.

The food was well above what I expected when we walked into this bar type restaurant. Our server James was hilarious and knowledgeable about the food. We had nachos, buffalo wings, poke bowl and an amazing burger. The cherry pie qualifies as comfort food for sure

We visited this restaurant when we were in Maui a year ago and had a nice meal and enjoyed the nice quiet setting. Unfortunately couldn't say the same for our recent visit on Friday 1/19/18. After reviewing the menu on their web site with our other 2 dining companions, we decided that it would be a good choice for dinner on our last night of our vacation. Upon arrival, we discovered that the menu for the night was no where near what was posted on line, instead it was a very limited menu if you can call that. The restaurant was woefully short staff, the place was loud and when we asked our waiter about the menu being different than the one posted on line, we got a very stern reply of "it's our menu for today and we change it daily"! Our entree took almost 3 0 minutes after we had our first course. Overall, a huge disappointment and we have had to apologize to our friends for recommending the restaurant.

Located at the tennis club and weren’t expecting it. But the food was great and the staff was even better. They had super off menu choices for the kids - Dino chicken nuggets - and what a view.

Three of four of our orders were messed up in some way- the glass of wine ordered was from an old bottle and vinegary, the fish and chips that was ordered came out as a filet of fish with rice and veggies instead, my salad had the wrong dressing (and was extremely bitter regardless), etc. The restaurant was understaffed, service was slow and inattentive, and the food was very overpriced for quality. We love Wailea and so many of the local restaurants; we will not waste another meal on Maui at the Kitchen & Tap.

We found this restaurant on OpenTable and weren’t sure what to expect. We were very pleased with our meal. The quality of the food was very good. While this is a pub atmosphere, the food was much better than one would find at a pub. Would recommend to others interested in a casual night out.

Our problem with our experience was actually with our open table reservation. We made a reservation, received a confirmation, showed up in the restaurant was closed. Though open table gave us a Monday night reservation, the restaurant is closed on Monday nights, which we did not no. We were very frustrated with OpenTable to have given us and confirmed a reservation for a night the restaurant was closed. We have eaten there on other occasions, and will go again because we've always enjoyed our experience there. That particular night we were very frustrated! The above rating is in regards to previous experiences.

Although it was quite tough to find this restaurant due to lack of signage, the search was definitely worth it. Staff and service was excellent. Call before you go there so they can tell you exactly where they are located instead of you driving around the complex.
Their Lord of the Wings were big, meaty and juicy with Asian sesame being our favorite.
Beef brisket was cooked to perfection - very tender and juicy. Dry rubbed ribs were slow cooked in the smoker and the meat was just falling off the bone. Delicious!!!
Food was soooo good we had to go back the 2nd time just before we hopped on the plane to come home.

Ordered the special which was ribs. They were burnt but the server said that is how they are cooked. When I told her it tastes like beef jerky they were so chewy and tough she said she would yell the cook. His response "thanks will take it in consideration" no offer to solve the problem. Will never be back and will tell my friends.

This was our third visit of the week. It was such a great experience and value that we returned again. If you want great food, a beautiful view and reasonable prices, this is the place. The smoked brisket was tender and delicious and the mac and cheese was a perfect side. They have a small but well varied menu for all tastes. And the service is excellent. We highly recommend them.
