Mama's Fish House sits on the north beach of Maui. The water is a gorgeous blue, the waves are exquisite. The restaurant is situated to that most customers have a view of the beach. Half a dozen or so outrigger canoes hang from the ceiling of the restaurant. The food is unequaled anywhere. Everyone, at least once in his or... More

If you have to leave gorgeous Maui, you need to consider the place to enjoy your last Maui Mai Tai. Mama's Fish House is the perfect place for your last Maui meal and adult beverage. The fresh caught fish is unsurpassed and we go out every night in Maui for a fish entry 90% of the time. Did I mention... More

We enjoyed dinner here recently and were especially "happy" that our son and daughter had given us a gift certificate because this place is pricey!! It is situated on a beautiful little beach with coconut palms. The open-air and ambiance is great and the food was wonderful but not really worth the huge bill. Drinks run $17-$25 ( wine) our...

This oceanfront dining is a little out of the way for a spur of the moment meal. For a special occasion or to celebrate a perfect day mamas fish house is perfect. The meals are delicious but pricey. You should try it at least once during a Maui visit.

The surf, the grounds and overall atmosphere added ti the wonderful experience we had. The food is truly outstanding. We had been warned it was a bit on the pricey side, however, you most definitely get what you pay for. Superb! Time and money well spent.

The best place to go on all the islands. If you can only afford one meal out this should be the place. It is wonderful for both lunch or dinner, prices are the same. The setting is fabulous. Fish is what to order. The crab or onion soup are great starters. Actually there is nothing bad on the menu. The... More

We went on our honeymoon trip and one day decided to eat here. I didn't realize we needed reservations, so we could not get in the day we wanted. We managed to get lunch reservations for the day before we left, and it was amazing! They had a personalized letter on our table saying congratulations, which was so sweet, and... More

I was a little surprised by their pricing, but I must say that the fish was so delicious and well- prepared. If you are on Maui, it's worthwhile to try once.

I loved the food here! Although a bit on the pricey side, completely worth it. I love my Zippy's just as much as any of these places, but you could tell the quality of the food was there. The service was amazing and the drinks were loaded, no skimping there. Although we went at night for dinner, the view during... More
