Hawaii Regional Cuisine
Due to the unpredictable Maui weather conditions, we cannot guarantee seating requests (regardless of how far in advance a reservation has been made or the occasion).

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.

Prime beef special sandwich for $20 was no better than my local deli in NY which is only $8 and I live in NY. I know we are paying for the truly incredible ambiance and view but would at least like a higher end hot sandwich with more trimmings for the price. And one side included?

Absolutely wonderful restaurant with the most amazing views of Maui's mountains. Food was delicious and they accommodated my food allergy very well. Staff is very knowledgeable and very professional. Everything is made in house. I ended up having a burger due to my food allergy and it was probably the best burger I have ever eaten. I enjoyed it so much we returned 3 days later to satisfy my craving. Just as good as the first time.They concentrate on getting their food from the plantation it is located on and buying whatever else locally.

A spectacular location with superb food. The smoked fish stuffed profiteroles were light and zesty. The cheese filled Agnolotti with grilled shrimp are covered with a terrific caper infused sauce. Unique and delicious.
They should add California wines, including sparkling, to their wine list.
The hostess, Kate, the Miss Montana runner-up, was as bright and perky as she is gracious with impressive knowledge of the variety of waterfowl and plants thriving on the Plantation. A fun place with excellent food and pleasant people.

The staff was very helpful in getting us a table in our preferred spot even though we arrived an hour early. All the staff were very courteous and efficient.
The burger was large and delicious, and high quality ground beef. Considering the size of the burger it was also very good value. The fries were much thinner than normal fries and an interesting cross between potato chips and beef eater style fries. However they tend to cool off much faster and might not be a favorite to all. Yam fries would have been a nice option.
The atmosphere is one of the big draws here and anyone interested in local history or tropical gardens will not be disappointed. It is nice that there is no charge to wander around the well designed gardens.

We will have to try lunch here in the future and then it will be possible to wander over to The Scoop ice cream shop located on the property after lunch. (It closes at 5pm) Nothing better than wandering around in the Maui sunshine with a Roselani Dark Chocolate Macadamia ice cream cone after a delicious meal :-)

The restaurant was cute. I loved the ambiance. However, the staff was not super friendly. I got there a little early for my reservation and I had no problem waiting for my table. I saw them grab a bunch of people from the bar area to get seated but they never came and got us. I eventually had to go up there and ask for my table again and it turns out they never checked us in. Mistakes happen and I wasn’t upset about it. However, we got our table and the waiter as well was not friendly. He barely checked on us to see if we needed anything. I could hear him asking the other tables for dessert and coffee and what not but never bothered with our table. Eventually we asked another waitress for our check. Disappointed in the service especially since we were so excited about trying this place.

Just a beautiful place with a flare at decor and ambiance.
The only slight alteration I would recommend would be to wait until our meal is done to deliver the bill and in addition allow time for us to finish our appetizers before bringing the main meal. Again I would go back again but these small details are important to my family and I and are part of the experience.

This meal was very impressive. The bar had drinks all hand crafted with home made ingredients and potions. The food was awesome. Locally sourced and perfectly prepared. Flavors were amazing. Jared the waiter was spectacular. He was knowledgeable, presented the food with flair and went above and beyond. Highly recommend! Spend a couple of hours on the garden grounds too!

Good place for bringing the kids. Prices a little lower than the market.
Food was average: Hamachi crudo was unseasoned and had pieces of hard grilled skin in it that we had to pick out before we lost a tooth, ribeye was only steak offered and it was thin and fatty, curry was ok. Nothing on menu would entice us to come back for something else.
Young staff: inexperienced (wouldn't check in during dinner, had to chase down for a bar order that didn't show up), but they were certainly enthusiastic.
Beautiful grounds to walk around and nice gift shop (except they close at 5:00 so all the diners can't spend money after their dinner! Who decided that was smart?)
Conclusion: for us there is much better food on the island and probably won't return.

Greeted at the door by their staff from the moment we walked in. It was my girlfriend’s birthday so I had selected the “special occasion” tab when making the reservation. Any team member who had interaction with us at the table made sure to say Happy Birthday to her which was awesome. The food was fresh, hot and a good size portion. The drinks were delicious and creative. The best part to me were the desserts that we couldn’t stop eating. They brought her a little birthday brownie at the end with some candles on it. Left there very full and satisfied with the entire Millhouse Restaurant in Maui. Thank you for making her birthday and dining experience one we won’t forget!

It was a kind of "wow" experience. Beginning from the based in history but modern designed space with a view, mentioning the professional, knowledgable and very nice service, finishing with absolutely delicious, perfectly balanced food - all of these created a perfect evening for us! We had Smoked Fish Profiteroles and Kanpachi Boquerones as a starter, then Fire-Roasted Veggies and Kauai Prawn&Fish Coconut Curry, finish with Almond Cake. Everything was delicious and the curry was my favorite dish! I fish I had a "second stomach" to try more :-)
