The Mill House
The Mill House applies an innovative approach to fresh, local ingredients in dishes that honor the cultures of those who emigrated from Japan, China, Spain, Korea, Portugal, and other distant lands to work in Maui’s sugarcane industry a century and more ago. All dining areas pay homage to Maui’s sugarcane history with reclaimed and restored pieces from the area’s now closed sugar mills.
When you make a reservation with The Mill House space is set aside at an indoor table for your comfort. Upon arrival, guests are seated in one of our four dining areas, with varying types of ambiance, and all open aired.
While the views from the lanai can be stunning, it is important to note that the weather varies. Swings between hot sunlight and cool breezes or rain are possible, making seating for this space unpredictable.
Amazing food and service, ambience celebrates the machinery of the sugar mills on Maui and is so beautiful.
Amazing experience! Best food we had in Maui and the ambiance cannot be beat. You won’t be disappointed!
Very touristy but oddly enough they manage to have an excellent wine and beverage list and the food was spectacular.
I highly recommend this restaurant. Friendly staff and great food. Ask the staff for recommendations if you can’t decide. I don’t think you’ll go wrong with anything you order.
Drinks took a long time
The food was great. We ordered: Steak Kalbi, Roased Vegetables, Cheeseburger, Pork Belly with barley, Taro Leaf Risotto, and the curry. It was all very tasty, the service was great and the restaurant had great decor.
We had lunch on a beautiful afternoon overlooking a pond and the West Maui mountains. That setting was an excellent complement to the food - all of which was very tasty and presented perfectly. Not inexpensive, but not overly expensive either, given the quality of the experience.
Every experience here is perfection. Easily one of the best dining options on Maui. The property is beautiful and perfect for pictures, the cocktails are expertly crafted and delicious (my favorite is the espina de la rosa. Yum, mezcal!), and the food- ohhh the food! It's all delicious. You can't go wrong.
The service is also always wonderful. Servers and back servers are super attentive and friendly and fun! They even play along with us since we tend to be the gregarious, playful table. They make it fun. And they made my birthday all the more special
Happy Birthday Jennifer! We're thankful you enjoy visiting and always have a great time. Aloha!
We could not have had a better experience! The ambience was amazing. It is a beautifully situated property with attention given to every detail. The service and food could not have been better. We started with the fish crudo and smoked fish appetizer, followed by the beet salad. All were exceptional with the freshest ingredients. Entrees included the fish and prawn curry, braised beef pasta, and the agnolotti dish. All three were incredible and the sauce for each dish was purely culinary art! We would highly recommend to anyone looking to up their culinary experience while in Maui!
Mahalo for labeling our farm-driven cuisine as culinary art! We are happy you had a great dining experience. Thank you for the five stars and high recommendation!
Service was stellar! As a tourist, we had a really rough day and Jacob G made it particularly special by tearing us to an appetizer. The manager on duty also came by our table and said he heard it was a challenging day. What turned out to be a disappointing day for us in the beginning ended at a high note. Thank you for your hospitality; you don’t know what those gestures meant to us.
We are delighted our team was able to help turn your day around, Julie! We have shared your compliments with Jacob and the team. Aloha!
This was my favorite meal of our trip! We ate at the bar and the servers were super friendly. The cocktail list is also super interesting. Would definitely go back - during daylight - to explore the property.
We can't wait for you to come back to explore and try more cocktails!
Spectacular! Open 3 years, a beautiful setting, we shopped for Christmas gifts, toured the grounds and had a wonderful dinner - shared plates - we started with a mushroom croqueta, the flavors set the tone, next the Italian sausage pizza with arugula and poached egg, followed by the Kauai prawn and kanpachi coconut curry and the most awesome pork chop, grilled medium served with a demi glaze and a carrot puree with roasted vegetables - all including the pork from the onsite farm - French press coffee(yes! even the beans are grown on the farm) and a green tea chocolate bomb - dark chocolate ganache filled with mousse and a matcha cream center. Perfection.
Mahalo for the detailed review and compliments! We are delighted you enjoyed shopping and dining at the plantation.
Beautiful location and the vibe
If your a foodie, and this restaurant is not on your list, than you’re truly missing out on an outstanding culinary experience. Book it!
Mahalo for the foodie recommendation and 5 stars!
The grounds are amazing. Excellent food. Great service.
Mahalo for visiting!
Service was awesome!! Food is ono!! Never had to ask for anything. They were on it.
We're thrilled the service elevated your experience!
Amazing location with fantastic views! A surprising break from all the oceanfront resort dining. The staff was well versed on menu options and made superb recommendations. And everything was reasonably priced. FOR SURE recommend going here.
Mahalo for the recommendation! We are happy you enjoyed the plantation views and our team.
Amazing restaurant and service. We loved it so much we went back again.
Mahalo for joining us more than once, Dee!
Great food and fantastic views!
Mahalo for the compliments!
Beautiful location! Great service and good food. Try the Monkey Business cocktail, it was delicious!
Mahalo for the compliments, Dawn!
The Mill House is easily one of the top two restaurants on the island, and possibly the best spot for quality cocktails. There's a shortage of truly good food on Maui, but you'll find it here. This was our first stop from the airport, and we liked it so much we went back for our last meal at the end of the trip. The staff is also excellent, and the views are lovely when it's light out. I do puzzle at their staffing; both times we ate here, we had to wait for a table, while staring at *dozens* of empty tables. That was odd. But worth it for the food and drinks.
Mahalo for naming us one the top for craft cocktails and cuisine, Rich! We do have four various dining rooms that are used depending on the weather, as it changes throughout the day. Thank you for visiting for your first and last meal! Safe travels!
Four of us went to dinner at Mill House to celebrate my husband’s birthday. As usual, the food was excellent, far above the ordinary. The portions are small, which suits us but someone with a large appetite might keep that in mind. This isn’t comfort food, it’s a culinary experience. Our waitperson was friendly and efficient. The only odd thing was that when we arrived, the hostess first attempted to seat us in the front dining area, no view, no ambience. We had a reservation, and they knew it was a special occasion. There were open tables in both areas, so I asked to have a table in the dining area with the open wall to the beautiful gardens and we were accommodated. This is our go-to place when we have guests who know food. Everything we had was good. The kalbi steak small plate is my favorite, absolutely delicious and so perfect for someone who doesn’t eat carbs. Just savory thin sliced tender rare steak and a fabulous salad of thinly sliced papaya in a vinaigrette. The desserts are a perfect size, that is, small, and beautifully done.
Happy Birthday to your husband! We appreciate your patronage and feedback. We are delighted your favorite is the Kalbi Steak! We look forward to your next visit. Mahalo!
I saw some bad comments on food here, but nothing bad happened to us during the dinner.
We really liked everything we ordered, which were chopped salad, taro leaf risotto, teriyaki beaf, and grilled eggplant. We could feel some Japanese essence from some plates, so as Japanese traveler the meals fit good in our tastes.
Staff was so supportive that we could pick best dishes for the family dinner that night.
The restaurant is in the Maui Plantation and this environment gives us the feeling of eating in the nature. I will recommend this place.
Mahalo for dining with us! We are thrilled you enjoyed the Japanese influence in the multi-cultured, farm-driven cuisine. Thank you for the five stars and recommendation!
It was my wife’s birthday lunch. Jacob (our server) and team took great care of us and made our time at The Mill House special. Ask for the light and bright room that faces the mountains and the plantation. The view is beautiful.
Happy Birthday to your wife! We are delighted the team provided a special dining experience. We have passed your compliments to Jacob and the team. Aloha!
We had an awesome time at the Mill House - the food was fantastic, the view was great, and the service was the best we’ve had on the island! Do yourself a favor and make the trip :)
It's great to hear you enjoyed the farm-driven cuisine, ambiance, and friendly service. Aloha!
Awesome vegetarian options. Great for kids. Spectacular setting
We are delighted you enjoyed the vegetarian options. Mahalo for dining with us!
The ambiance is the selling point, beautiful environment, awesome Earth to table feel! The hostesses were friendly and helpful! Our server Jacob was awesome, helped us pick some delicious drinks and food! They have great non-alcoholic drinks as well as a range of wines and beers. The food was amazing! The rib-eye with the coffee rub was spectacular. I am a steak lover and this was hands down one of the best steaks I’ve had at a restaurant! The prawn curry was amazing and so were the appetizers! Highly recommend!
Mahalo for sharing your experience and the recommendation! We have shared your compliments with Jacob. Aloha!
Amazing place. The views and food are spectacular
Mahalo for the kind words!
Staff was really nice and accommodating
Mahalo for the 5-stars, Andy!

Mahalo! Can't wait to have you back!
One of our favorite restaurants on Maui! Always a treat to go - beautiful space, great food and service.
We are proud to be one of your favorites! Mahalo for the kind review.
Very pretty place with innovative food - worth a visit!
I have eaten at the Mill House several times over the last few years . I’ve always enjoyed the food very much .
Last night the evening was not pleasant. It started when out party of 4 was seated at a large table for 6 in the center of the dining room . We literally needed to lean into the table to be able to talk to each other . We asked to be moved but they were unable to fulfill that request.
I ordered a chopped salad and the butternut squash pizza ( I have eaten both before ). The chopped salad was plentiful, but tasteless. It did not appear to have anything but very coarse shredded cabbage and a few raisins and some sliced cucumbers and tomatoes . I added lots of salt and pepper to make it tolerable.
My husband had the beet salad . The beets were under cooked and needed seasoning. ( salt and acid )
The main courses were no better , My pizza was bland and cold with 6 small crumbles of the fennel sausage. My husband’s mahi mahi fish sandwich was plain with no hint of the pesto or garlic aioli that was mentioned on the menu . Our two quests had similar issues with their meals . The sweet potato chips were very good that were an additional side we always order.
Overall , a very disappointing evening . The Grounds of the restaurant are beautiful and well worth the drive. I’m hoping it was just an off night for the kitchen . I’ll be checking reviews going forward before booking with The Mill House again.
( FYI, we live on Maui, so , this review is from a local not a disgruntled tourist)
We apologize you did not have an enjoyable dining experience. Thank you for sharing this feedback. We have notified the Executive Chef and his team. We appreciate your patronage and hope to see you again soon. Mahalo!
Great food - all of it (except fish) comes from their 1000 acre farm. Breathtaking setting with the mountains serving as a backdrop, original food and fantastic service make for a great dinner. We expected to pay more than we did. Highly recommend.
Mahalo for sharing your dining experience! We appreciated the recommendation. Aloha!
This was the cherry-on-top of an already perfect work/vacation trip with my wife. Fortunately for The Mill House, the reviews on Opentable were outstanding so we decided to try it before our flight back to Denver. I am so glad we did and this was one of the highlights of our trip. From the atmosphere to the food to the service, we were smiling the entire time. Job well done and we’ll see you again in June when we return to Maui with two other families. Can I make my reservation now?!
Yes, we would love to help you with a reservation for June! Mahalo for making us the last stop on your trip, and we're already looking forward to your visit in June. Safe Travels!
We stopped here right after we landed in Maui and man was it a great first experience!
Mahalo for making us your first stop! We hope to see you again before you leave the island. Enjoy Maui!
Great grounds. Some food excellent, some terrible. Service marginal. We won’t go back.
Hospitality and cuisine quality is important to us, and we apologize you did not enjoy your dining experience. Thank you for the feedback.
