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.

The restaurant is in a beautiful setting. But the food is not that great. If you want to spend $150 for two just to sit in a beautiful setting, go for it. For us, it is worth to go there once. But we won’t be going back. You can get better food at several other places on Maui.

Beautiful grounds. Fresh food and great servers. Unfortunately, this visit one of our meals was not put in with the initial order (forgotten) and the rest of our group was served their dinners and two of us (who were splitting that one meal) had to wait for the forgotten meal. They tried really hard to make up for their mistake by bringing out some extra appetizers and they also did not charge us for that one meal. Still disappointing as it kind of ruined the mood.

Maui is like a second home which we’ve cherished for decades, but recently we’ve also enjoyed Oahu for its more extensive restaurant options. Discovering The Mill House in Wailuku has been a great find in Maui. The food, advertised as farm to table, truly delivered as such. We shared a beet salad, roasted bone marrow appetizer, and a delicious agnolotti pasta. The beets melted in your mouth, the bone marrow served with their homemade warm flatbread crisps and a deliciously piquant ginger and onion condiment was a bite of heaven, and the pasta was exquisitely rich, tender and decadently flavorful. But this was just the food; the views of the mountains, pond, and pasture were stunning. The surrounding gardens in the waiting area were adorned with wildlife treasures, as well. This all made for a wonderful evening, enhanced by Yancy, our knowledgeable and attentive waiter, who added even more to a fabulous dining experience.

Mahalo for appreciating the genuine farm-driven cuisine, the Executive Chef works hard to develop relationships with local farmers and ranchers to ensure the freshest ingredients possible. We're happy you enjoyed the surrounding gardens and views from the restaurant. We will pass along your compliments to Yancy. Until next time!

The Mill house is very close to the airport so I decided to bring my wife and daughter there as the last stop before our trip is over. This is a pretty big location with many scenic spots for photography. The restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor view. I chose the indoor because I don’t want to build up a sweat before I board my flight. The sunset was beautiful as the sun goes behind the Mountain View. The food is also very satisfying considering the prices. Throughout the trip I’ve tried other fancy restaurants like Banyan Tree, and Plantation House but the Mill House has the best value for the prices if we are only considering the food. I had the prawn and fish curry and my wife had the beef pasta. Both are great choices but the Kalbi appetizer was the biggest surprise. It looks a tenderloin but it tasted like short rib.

I think this place is a must stop if your flight home is at night.

Wine choices-excellent. We ordered a bottle of red. It was so good.
Bread with butter- couldn’t finish it; it was a little too salty for us.
Manapua-excellent...Sauce that came with it was very tasty.
Sausage pizza-I thought it was pretty good; my husband thought it was just OK
Seafood curry was also a little too salty for us. We couldn’t finish that as well.
Almond dessert-I liked it; my husband thought it was just OK.

We were visiting from Oahu and was very excited about having Happy Hour there. We like the concept of “farm to table”. We were a little disappointed when we left. The service was great, the wine was great and the food was just OK. I really would like to go back and give it another try on my next trip over...

Service is lackluster at best - disinterested, unorganized, and sloppy in actuality. Such a shame as the restaurant is nestled in the charming Plantation grounds.

Considering the fact that the drink menu is 3x the dining menu, one would expect more than overly sweet and sugary concoctions that destroy any character the spirits may have once possessed.

We ordered from the Chef’s Selections portion of the menu, which is purportedly the creme de la creme of the kitchen. What a disappointment. The flavors consist primarily of raw ginger, salt, and a HEAVY hand with lemon. The ox tail soup with dumplings was inedible with dumplings (Western, not Asian) as hard as golf balls. I couldn’t even get my spoon through one to taste it. I left the full dish with overcooked greens and raw ginger untouched. When our server came to check on us, Instead of offering to replace the dish with something else, he simply left it on the table and said he’d mention it to the kitchen but that they were supposed to be “dense”.

Meanwhile, our second course arrived - agnolotti with prawns. Imagine again my disappointment when a dish of a single cut up shrimp (not a prawn in sight) with flavorless ravioli covered in melted butter and mayonnaise (ahem, an emulsion) and what literally looked like the frozen veg medley from the supermarket freezer section was placed in front of me.

Oh, and the “fire roasted vegetables” was boiled crudités with powdered Parmesan cheese, which the server practically threw on the table, causing the whole dish to resemble a pizza delivered after being dropped and jostled through a sinkhole-sized pothole.

A manager asked how we were enjoying the meal, and I asked whether our server had mentioned the “dense” dumplings (as he said he would). No mention of it - what a surprise! I have long ago accepted the fact there is no “gourmet” dining in Maui, but hospitality is essential and usually the norm on the island. Mill House fell woefully short of the mark.

We are disappointed to hear of your recent experience with the food, drinks, and service. The Mill House is a from-scratch kitchen and sources fresh ingredients locally. Servers are trained to share guest concerns with management; we are sorry this did not happen. The bartenders are required to follow recipes which include at least 1.5 ounces of spirits per drink. Mahalo for sharing your feedback as it enables the Management Team to implement changes that enhance the overall experience.
