We were extremely pleased with the food selection, presentation and price. The restaurant is extremely busy during high season, make reservations if you can. You can at least call ahead to get on their list. Several groups were leaving as we came, unwilling to wait 30 or so minutes The restaurant is a bit noisy and we were glad to... More

We always visit this place for lunch. The have good cocktails, friendly service, and tasty, inexpensive food. It is a good standby when you just want to eat and want to know for sure it will all be ok.

We enjoyed a calamari appetizer followed by blackened Mahi Mahi over seasoned rice with a side of cold slaw. They also serve wine and beer. Very busy place and worth a visit.

The food was delicous and beautifully arranged. The cocktails were reasonably priced and delicious as well! Many seemed to be creative (not same-old same-old) with matching Maui-style names. I found the Silversword (a rather tart cocktail) with the Kona coffee Créme Brûlée a perfect pairing!! Atmosphere was so-so, nothing special, but quality of food and service were all I needed!
