    By far the best place we have eaten in Maui! The tristian lobster is unlike any lobster you have ever tasted, the prime rib is delicious and the parmesan crusted o'no is amazing as well!

    Go right at 5 for the 5:00 seating to get a spot right at the "window" (open) and watch the sunset. Amazing view, fabulous prime rib, didn't even have room to try the famous hula dessert.

    Great place to get a bite to eat in Lahaina with a spectacular view. Try to get a table outside as sitting upstairs can feel somewhat cramped and crowded. Hula pie was great!

    If you want great service at a fun place, sit at the bar. Ask for "coach" (Kevin). Been at Kimo's for 22 years and has some great stories as well as experience. Awesome guy, awesome food, awesome bar.

    Fresh fish baked Kimo's style was excellent. The Brussels sprouts and sweet potato hash (with amazing beef jerky) was also delicious and quite unique.

    This was our last stop on the way out of Maui. The highlights were the Hula Pie and the great sunset view. The crabs hanging on the rocks below the patio were also entertaining.

    If the coconut crusted with Thai peanut sauce and pineapple salsa is available, do not miss it! It was delicious with the ah'i. The opah was fabulous with the orange-ginger glaze & mac nuts. Yum!

    If the hostess tells you it's going to be a 45 minute wait, give the name Skywalker for your reservation and then use your Jedi mind powers to be immediately seated. Works like a charm.

    Service was great, everyone very friendly. Food was meh and considering for the price, I'm swinging to even bad. Very touristy (as you would expect). Better places to eat and get a view in Maui.
