We dined at Merriman's twice during our stay at the Ritz Kapalua. The first time we just stopped in to have a drink and watch the sunset out on the patio and ended up having dinner at the bar. We made reservations to return and dined in the dining room later in the week. Both visits the food was simply... More

We were blown away at how beautiful this restaurant was. The sunset views were unbelievable. We ordered the Monchong fish with macadamia nuts for dinner and it was one of the best meals we have ever had. This is a must see when going to Maui. We will definitely be back!

Determined to forgo the dining room for the incredible deck area--simply stunning setting. Two cocktails to start, both were stunningly good, margarita and mai tai, particularly the latter. Then on to Pupu platter: super tasty. Then the deck area starts to get busy just before sunset, and chaos and disappointment ensues. Settling in for sunset, we order a glass of... More

Merriman's is a top notch restaurant. The staff is very friendly. My wife and I sat at the bar and enjoyed a great sunset over drinks and a super meal. My wife had the Prime Filet & Applewood Bacon Sliders along with the Upcountry Organic Kale and Butter Lettuce Salad. Both were excellent. I had the Chili Grilled Fresh Keahole... More

Hate to go against the grain here, but the featured soup was lobster bisque that was bland and not even WARM all the way thru, nevermind hot. Garnish of kale with parmesan cheese added nothing. Portions small on entrees even for the pricey restaurants. Simple dessert of Kona ice cream was delicious.
