A breath of fresh air, this bar has a 70's surfer vibe, friendly (but yes, slooow) service, dogs (yay!), wall-sized windows that open to the eastern hills, meh food, and $2 draft beers (not always). I was just so relieved to find someplace that felt semi-real in this northern stretch of wall-to-wall high-rises and corporate hotels. Go to catch a... More

Great watering hole type bar. Tropical theme. We were at the bar to watch the Warriors game. Good service from the bar, as we ate too. The funniest thing is the house dog which looks like part pug and something else. He would come sit under your bar stool when the food came to us. He had no shame and... More

We had heard great things about Spanky's so we decided to go there during an afternoon to watch some basketball and have lunch. It was a unique place with a great deal of character. A completely different crowd than at normal Maui tourist places, which was a nice change. However, our service was very slow and it was not even... More

Went to Spankys with some friends to have some drinks and snacks. We were able to get drinks pretty quickly but food took forever. I think they were shorty staffed but took at least an hour just to get fries. The fries were good and drinks were good. Nice open air atmosphere with interesting decor. Only place I've ever seen...

Great place to watch Red Wing Hockey. They had no problem turning on the game whenever they were playing. Very nice and accommodating work staff.

Many different alcohol options. Loved the eclectic decor. Loved the openness of the bar. The men's bathroom door has a very young Elvis Presley poster and the women's bathroom door has Farrah Fawcett's famous poster from the 80s. The staff could have been a bit more friendly to the tourists. They were very friendly to the locals. I recommend it... More

We wandered in to Spanky's a few times late at night after enjoying a meal down town. While we didn't try the food, we loved pulling up a stool at the bar for a couple (or more) night caps. Great atmosphere with good music playing and various sports on the TV's, loved the decor, and the staff were always friendly.... More

We stopped here for a drink after going downtown. Loved all the decor, great atmosphere, friendly bartender. We went there towards the end of our trip, wish we would've known about it at the beginning. It was a fun place to hang out!

We stopped in here for drinks one night while staying at the Lahaina Shores. It's right next door to that hotel. The atmosphere is funky, but the bartender and the other patrons were a lot of fun to talk with. They have several TV's. They agreeably tuned one of the sets to an NCAA basketball game for us, so that... More
