We stopped in after a long day driving the Road to Hana. We were unprepared for prices, and were completely underdressed, BUT despite that we had exceptional service and planned to go back based on the outstanding appetizers and super-friendly service. The crab cakes came...More

We go to Mama's every time we visit Maui and it is never disappointing - the best and freshest fish and superb service. Absolutely worth driving to. It is as close to perfection as one can find.

Mama's is what you think of when you dream of a fish house in paradise. The fish are so fresh they even tell you who caught them and where. Try there signature preparation. Save room for desert and try one of the exotic drinks. Make...More

The location is charming-- a perfect Hawaiian spot. However, the prices for lunch can make you fall off your chair. The food is good, but the bill at the end is not justified by the good food or even the outstanding scenery. There are many...More

We have a good friend, something of a connoisseur, who has recommended Mama's Fish House to us for years. We were always put off by the prices. However, family members gave us a generous gift card as a thank you for giving them a week...More

Yes, but not your typical chix fingers and hamburger. Our 10 year old had a small portion of lobster for the first time. You might want to call them ahead of time. I am sure they will accommodate you.

Yes - nice shorts are fine. In fact, I don't think there is anywhere in Maui that requires "fancy" dress. It is "Island Casual" everywhere. Be sure to make a reservation!!
