great views, good food, expensive

Fantastic views from this fine dining restaurant on the beach. A little too pricey for the food quality (Comparing it to Lahaina grill and the Plantation, in same category, which we also tried), but it is very good and the location can't be beat. We walked over from the beach (but had clothes on... read more

We had only a few hours left of our trip and decided to try happy hour instead of dinner as we just didn't have enough time. Well we arrived exactly at 3 PM and were seated at a very nice table outside as requested. The view was amazing! Our server was very nice and helped us with some appetizer selections... More

Best meal of our trip thus far. It was even better than Mama's. Thus burrata tomato salad was incredible, and the garden salad was to die for. The filet was cooked perfect and being able to try two dinners at 1/2 portions was fun. The bread they give you with a tomato dipping sauce is so amazing. Everything about this... More

They were very busy and since we didn't have a reservation, we got seated in the bar. Not a big deal since we had been there several times before and you still have a view. Our server, Stephanie, was fantastic and I loved the energy in the bar. I had the Ahi Poke as a starter, which was out of... More

we book in advance for a table up front, and have not been disappointed...the view, ambiance and food are, in our opinion, the best on Maui...we love it here...the best mai tai is also made here...and we have tried them everywhere! The fish dinner is always memorable...delicious...preparation perfect...really the best fish dinner anywhere for us!

This restaurant is in a beautiful location right on Kapalua Bay Beach. We had a nice table overlooking the ocean but they had the sunscreens down so it was difficult to see the view. My husband ordered the ahi tuna which was fabulous, but my mahi-mahi was rather ordinary and dry. I was expecting something better for the expensive price.... More

Really great food and service, but pricey. Spectacular sunset views. Well worth a trip, even if you're not staying in Kapalua.

My husband and I were married on Kapalua Bay and then we walked up to Merriman's for our dinner reception. From start to finish, the service, food, décor, music was more than we could ever have imagined. JayJay was our server, and he was so knowledgeable of the menu, making recommendations to all of us, bringing extra mushroom sauce.....oh, so... More

We went for a wedding and holy cow..... every single thing we ate, the view and the service were all top both, tier one, excellent quality!! The views are why you go there I am sure but the food will keep you. The Risotto balls were unbelievable. At first I couldn't decide if I were just hungry or if they... More

We enjoyed Merriman's on Mothers Day for Brunch. It was an overall perfect dining experience. Despite being a busy day, service was excellent, great table, an enjoyable menu. Everyone we met was very pleasant. More intimate atmosphere than the larger restaurants in Kaanapali.
