One of our very favorite places for breakfast on Maui. Get there very early or late as it gets crowded and there's limited parking in the area. You'll LOVE the Macadamia Nut pancakes with Coconut Syrup and a cup of hot Kona coffee. A bonus is the view of Lahaina harbor / marina as you wait to be seated.

Me and my partner were set on going to Captain Jack's but found street parking very close to Pioneer Inn. I like how we were able to seat ourselves. We arrived in the afternoon and there was a handful of people in the restaurant. We found a table near the African grey parrot and listened to him/her sing and talk.... More

Great place for the authentic sea rat who's on vacay but wants to feel at home like you're at the wharf. Great Happy Hour prices and by far the best and one of the oldest bars, as in the true bar itself, to lean on for a cold brewski!

We had breakfast here twice. You get a view of the Banyan Tree and one of the Harbor. Wonderful views! Great pancakes, great fruit plate, wonderful potatoes. I am hooked on coconut syrup and guava jelly now!!

This was a light lunch stop. We shared the pulled pork nachos that were good. The harbor is right across the street. They had a parrot that was talking and whistling at people on the street.T he service and prices were OK!

After walking up and down Front Street, stop in and relax. View the Banyan Tree and the harbor. Their prices are very moderate per Island standards. Try them especially for breakfast or lunch.

This is tucked away a bit, but worth looking for. It's next to the old Lahaina courthouse and the large banyan tree. They offer a variety of food, but recommended by locals is the Portuguese sausage, a common breakfast item. If you've walked along the boardwalk and ready for a bite, it's a good place to try.

We were on a hunt for a good breakfast spot in Lahina and had another place in mind when we came upon Pioneer Inn Grill. Decided to give it a try and so glad we did. Our table of six had a variety of breakfast items, but eggs benedict was the favorite. Our friendly waitress kept the good coffee flowing... More

A nice meal, cold drinks and attentive service. A beautiful spot for lunch on a warm day, just opposite the large Banyan tree. I does have a noisy cockatoo :)

Steak dinners are pricey in Maui, but you can get a good one here for only $26 (compared to an average of at least $40 at other restaurants). My husband enjoyed the steak while I indulged in the prime rib sandwich which was quite good. The entertainment was a bonus, and the Pioneer is right next to the water front... More

Enjoy Breakfast, Lunch, Happy Hour and Dinner at the historic Pioneer Inn Grill and Bar. Breakfast favorites include macadamia nut pancakes, loco moco and huevos rancheros in addition to healthy favorites like oatmeal or yogurt with fresh fruit. For lunch and dinner we offer the freshest fish, Maui grown burgers and steaks and a full range of small plates including hearts of Romaine caesar salad, seared ahi and kahlua pig sliders. The historic whalers saloon is the perfect place to watch the fishing boats come in with their catch while enjoying one of our Mai tais or another tropical favorite. We offer local draft beer and know that you will find our resident African gray parrot entertaining.
