Our group (two couples) stopped here while visiting the Kukui'ula Village Shopping Center (which was great in itself). We have been to other Merriman's and knew if we stopped here we would get some good eats. Fish tacos, pork pineapple pizza, a fish & arugula...More

A very well appointed second floor dining room exudes the feeling of a Hawaiian plantation house. An excellent menu and superb sevice make Merriman's a must visit. One of the specials of the night we visited was excellent fried chicken. I would highly recommend it.

This place is average, not very inspiring food, I would not recommend it - the staff seemed bored and uninterested in being there as well - tasteless fish, sauces probably out of a jar - don't waste your time or $$$

First, you have to try a Mai Tai! They are so good! The food was also good. I love that they have a combination plate where you can combine any two entrees with half portions. I did filet and fish. Both delicious. The views are...More

We always go to Merriman's in Maui with the breathtaking views of the ocean. I have to say, I was slightly disappointed with this site. We overlooked a field of nothing, it was sweltering hot, and the ceiling fans were barely on. Our server was...More

Yes but agree the top level is more fine dining and the children would be better suited to the lower levels. This was a lovely restaurant.
