I didn’t mind it was a pool side grill. The drinks were good, but the meal was the worst we’ve had in Maui. My chicken was chewy and my husband’s fish & chips was more breading than fish.
Quick, delicious and great service. This is our go to when we just want to stay close to the hotel.
Ahi was to spicy. Teraki wings were super fried and tasted nothing like teraki. Expensive for what food was. Ceaser salad was good.
Great food and drinks. Between beach and hotel. Great place. Service was great too. Great for people watching too. As far as chain restaurants on the water in Maui, adequately priced. Would definitely go back
The restaurant was understaffed. Not their fault I understand. Nice ambiance but overpriced. Food was fair.
Great food, great service! Loved the ahi salad and the fish and chips.
We wanted to go out to lunch and this place popped up. We gave it a try. The place was in the pool area of the resort and was really nice. Our waiter was great and the size of our orders was large. The food was great. A really nice surprise.
Great food. Everything was delicious and they give generous portions.
We are on vacation and wanted to have a nice dinner in a nice place. I liked the chicken stir fry, but my husband was disappointed in the fish and chips meal. Fish was very greasy. He pulled the breading off. Big pretzel appetizer was good and is huge; enough for 4 or 5 people
This was our dinner after traveling! Great to have this option available at the hotel.
The food was terrible and absolutely not worth the price. We would not recommend this restaurant.
This restaurant is located next to the pool and bar. Outdoor seating is the only option currently. Great food, overpriced but is at a resort so they can do that. Not a date spot but great pool/bar food. Quick bites.
Start of vacation
Typical hotel outdoor casual restaurant. Ton of tables. Adjacent to very busy pool area. Watery drinks. Ok food.
Food was good. Service was slow.
Nice variety of menu items. Pupus, salads, sliders, flatbread, tacos, etc. Street tacos are large and yummy. Fish and chips were really good. Would come back.
The service was very slow and lots of yelling going on at tables around us. I think because it’s outdoor dining people think it’s ok to yell and be loud. Our server was having a hard time remembering things and we kept waiting for her to come back to our table for the check. A better place to do lunch rather than dinner.
Service was extremely slow. The lemonade was watery. The poke bowl featured a spiced cooked fish instead of raw and did not taste good at all. The salsa and guacamole appeared store bought fast food quality and served in a single portion that was dwarfed by the mound of chips brought for 6 people. One person got violently ill after eating the pasta caprese. Quite expensive for low quality. Will definitely not return.
They ran out of food. My husband was so excited to eat here after a long day of driving to the road to Hana. We ordered and 5 minutes later the waitress comes back to tell us they ran out. On the spot we had to find an alternative dinner plate. We wanted fries instead of chips and that cost $5 to substitute which I thought was ridiculously high. Mind you we didn’t even know there was a charge to switch it out until we got the bill. I thought they would at least comp us a meal or even just a simple apology would be nice. The waitress gave us our food and walked away. Didn’t say enjoy or nothing. We left so upset and disappointed.
Stopped by here for a quick lunch. We were seated at our reservation time. Our server was attentive and nice without being overbearing.
The food was pretty good! It’s a little pricey, but we loved sitting in the shade and looking at the ocean.
Turkey sandwich was really good, but the potato chips it is served with are nothing special (probably Lay's). Service is pretty slow, seems understaffed. Location by the pool and ocean is good, but no sunset views available from the restaurant.
The food was really good, but the service was very slow. I do t think it was the servers fault, I just think they are under staffed. The food is worth the wait tho. Drinks very expensive.
Location was nice but service was slow. Seems like they are under staffed. Food was good, but with typical resort pricing.
Great food, beautiful scenery, great service!
Not a place to enjoy a peaceful evening, extremely loud, TVs are on with sports channels. Food is mediocre, you better off at McDonald’s or fish taco stand.
We had to walk to beach to get away from all the partying
Great food!! Will definitely go back!
Food was good but not much to choose from. Atmosphere was great and service was good also.
It was my friend’s birthday. We live on island and have not gone out with each other in several years. We do not go out much due to the pandemic. We felt very safe and comfortable with the whole experience. Our server was friendly and attentive.
Nice location and drinks were good but nothing special about the food. Hamburger is generic and overpriced.
It was a beautiful night out and we enjoyed every minute of it!!!
Fantastic beach bar by the pool. Ambience and service is outstanding. Would have given 5 stars for the food but for a marginal margherita flatbread pizza.
Love this place !
The food ordered was very good...huge pretzel with cheese or mustard dip, blt with turkey and avocado sandwich. The prices were very high, so for the money, I would expect outstanding food.
Good variety, reasonable pricing. Wonderful server, great atmosphere.
It's poolside dining at the pool restaurant. Doesn't differ much from eating lunch from the same pool shack and bar. Not a new or different restaurant.
Great food and staff. Not very good at honoring reservations I made weeks ago. We had high top reservations with my 82 y/o mother at 6:15 as those tables were protected from very windy conditions. When we arrived they said those tables were full and were unavailable. Why have reservations if they are ignored?
The server was very nice and very professional, however we were left waiting for quite some time before anyone came over to us. Two tables that arrived after us were waited on and had food prior to us really ordering. The food was excellent and the views were incredible. Again, the wait staff was very friendly, I think that they were just not being advised correctly by whoever the manager was.
Don’t be fooled by this place. Even though is is available for booking on various apps, it is a basic and uninteresting hotel restaurant. Located in the enormous Hyatt resort, the setting is nice enough but the food is again very basic and the service inept.
We arrived and were seated at one of the tables, which all appeared to be outside in the open. We waited forever for service. We finally grabbed a server who just couldn’t be bothered.
Then it started to rain. Fortunately there was an umbrella beside the table. We asked a passing server to help us out it up and he refused and told us not to touch it. Meanwhile at an adjacent table two servers literally ran to put up not one but two umbrellas to shelter a lovely young patron who shrieked when she was being rained on.
I can’t even remember the food it was so boring and I was so disgusted with the service.
Oh, and they never registered my Hyatt points for my meal. In fact the servers acted like they didn’t know what I was taking about.
There is no reason to go here. Boring food. Deplorable service.
Great food for last minute dining alternative. Go to for quick and affordable diner.
Fresh food and a casual dining experience. Great staff. Will dine here again.
