Food was inventive and delicious. Service was great. Next time I’d ask to be closer to the water to make it perfect. Shared a few pupus - tuna tacos and calamari with harissa, crab-crusted monchong, watermelon salad and side of gnocchi between 3 people and were stuffed.

It was our nine-year anniversary of living on Maui, and we were happy to get a reservation for one of our favorite restaurants on the West Side.
Sea House has it all...fabulous view of the ocean and Molokai, great food ( including an early bird smaller fare of a salad, entree of mac crusted mahi mahi and a delicious tiramissou dessert) and a very nice server staff. ( Mariete was sweet and very efficient.)
We look forward to there again.

Sea House Restaurant is a hidden gem. Most people end up at Merriman's next door (which is very well known). However, Sea House is just as great as Merriman's. The location is spectacular right next to the beach/cove. Breakfast, lunch, happy hour, AND dinner are all wonderful. The servers and reception desk are extremely friendly and helpful. We have been dining at this restaurant for the last 3-4 years for B/L/D and have always had a great meal and fantastic experience!

One of our last meals on Maui. We got to sit outside near sunset however, our table was back in a corner near where the kitchen staff come in and out. So we really didn’t get a great view and there was a lot of hustle bustle and kitchen noise

Lobster was way overcooked, bread pudding rubbery, all the food was not good. The best thing about the place is the location and view. We’ve eaten breakfast, happy hour, and dinner here twice and it has been disappointing every time I’m sorry to say. It’s way overpriced for the quality of food you get. Breakfast was the best of all the meals though.

Lovely setting by the bay with beautiful sunset. Kinda old fashioned place, not fancy or ritzy, comfortable and ok for kids. The beet and goat cheese salad was the best I’ve ever had. My husband had the wedge salad and it was big enough to share. They have an early bird menu from 5:30-6:00 and nightly specials. We had the nightly special which was prime rib It was just average, not a lot of flavor. Service from Ashley was great and we enjoyed the live music. It’s a bit of a walk down from parking lot so keep that in mind if any mobility issues.

The water guy didn’t say a word to us even when we said hi and thank you. The food was just average which was surprising for the amount of money we spent (nearly $300). The view was beautiful, though,.

The service, atmosphere, food and price (we did the early bird dinner) were all exceptional!! We celebrated our 25th anniversary and our server acknowledged this special event by treating us to a delicious pineapple cheesecake in addition to our delicious tiramasu dessert!! We will definitely return!!

Fabulous meal. Both the lobster and monchung with lobster cream sauce were awesome. The watermelon salad was refreshing, & 3 flavors in the ice cream pie raised this common Hawaiian dessert to a whole new level. Friendly, attentive but unrushed service plus the outstanding views made this the best meal of our month vacation in Maui.

This was the best meal of our week long vacation. The setting overlooking Napili Bay is beautiful. Food was delicious, especially the caprese salad and the crab crusted monchong. Sunday surf and turf combo was also really tasty. This was also the first restaurant where they served great cocktails…. The Mai Tais actually had rum in them (as opposed to some other well known spots where they were mostly sweet and sour mix)

Our only suggestion is that they start limiting the happy hour crowd to 90 minute seatings… we had to wait about a half hour for our 6:45 reservation on the patio because the people had been sitting g there for 4 hours! (Per the manager) We also were told that we couldn’t order drinks from the bar to have while we were waiting because “we weren’t hotel guests”. Not sure why that matters??

Anyway, despite those 2 glitches, we really enjoyed our meal and will definitely return our next time here.

We had a great time at Sea House the food was great. We were seated on the patio and if we had been there a bit earlier before 7pm the view would have been fabulous. We were there at 8pm and it was dark but still a very nice location. The Monchong with risotto was really good and my husband had the steak which he enjoyed.

Server was not great. Not much of a personality. We had to ask for bread and many times to fill up our water and iced tea. The guy bringing out bread actually had me put out my hand instead of walking over and putting it on my plate. It was strange. Screwed up our simple order too...but food was excellent, table couldn’t be better, perfect location, and overall a great experience! Complimentary anniversary dessert too!

Lovely spot, well-prepared and very fresh food - over two nights we had ahi, mahi,lamb chops and chicken, widely variable preparations and all excellent. Pleasant service, extremely reasonable wine prices. And the setting is hard to beat!
