You can't go wrong with this place. The prices were reasonable - considering it is beachfront on Kanapali Beach. The service was good. The food was decent. The views are nice. We came after sunset so it wasn't as crowded (it can get crazy to find a table at sunset). We sat outside on the patio. The desert was really... More

Service is quick, and pretty friendly..... They are always busy from an hour before sunset to 8:30 or so in the evening.... You must try the Hula Pie!

This is a typical beachfront place, except it has two dining areas. One is a beachfront grille and the other is a more formal dining area, both with separate menus. We've eaten in the dining area in the past and found it to be good, but quite pricey. This time we were in the beachfront grille. I had the best... More

The food and the sunset are the real treat here. Get here early so you get a good view of the sun setting. Leave room for the hula pie, you cannot leave without it.

Great fish with great advice from the staff. It is a busy place so reservations were a good idea. Would recommend highly!

I guess I was a little disappointed with the limited menu for a restaurant rated so high. The service was exceptional and food very good. Prices reasonable for the location. Next time I will probably go to their sister restaurant Hula Grill for the better selection

We ate at the less expensive beachside grill section (there is also the dining room). The food was excellent. I had a chicken dish that was so moist and tender it practically melted in my mouth. Found the noise level a little high for an outdoor seating, but the food certainly makes dinner here worth the trip.

Lots of people and very busy, food was good (heard they had the best fish tacos but we beg to differ) the BEST part is that they have KIMO'S Hula Pie! And it was even better than the one we had a Kimos!

While the place and food are good enough the long wait does not worth it. The "hostesses" did not advise us we could get a drink at the bar while waiting until the last second. Literally. They finally got us a table after more than 1 hour waiting ( we were told it would get 40 minutes) Would not bother... More

We are here our final night in Maui. The view is great and the food is consistently good. I had the seared ahi with rice and asparagus. We also suggest their hula pie, now a tradition.
