Where to start? The restaurant is beautiful, right on the beach, a perfect view of the sunset. Every morsel we ate was sublime. The wok charred ahi was perfectly cooked and melted in my mouth. The accompanying fern salad was crunchy and citrusy to complement the ahi. My daughter had the mahi mahi, which was so delicately cooked, full of... More

In a nutshell, the view, food, ambience and the folks serving us were great. We've been here a few times and Merriman's seems to get better each time. The food is prepared in a really nice presentation and very tasty. We were told they have a new chef. I would recommend Merriman's but with a small caveat: it's gonna be... More

went to Kapalua beach, snorkeling for my 50th and then moved to Merriman's for drinks at Happy Hour.. We had great appetizers and drinks. the most amazing part was the view. unfortunately outside seating was not available due to impending private function. fun time had by all.

We came here for Happy Hour. Beer was $3 and cocktail $6. The happy hour food were little portions ... wish there was more because it tasted good. The only negative was the cost for the size of the food portions ($8-13$). Dinners were in the $40 range... the place is very clean, top notch.

We visited Merriman's for my birthday celebration. We could have not picked a better place. We arrived at 5:30 since our 2 grandchildren were with us. The view was unreal, looking over a bay and the island of Molokai. Our table of 8 was in the perfect spot to see the wonderful guitar player/singer. At first we thought the entertainment... More

We've eaten in the restaurant before, but I would encourage you to head out to the Point Bar for Happy Hour and the amazing sunset. The Point Bar opens at 3PM (we like to call ahead to see if they are open as this is a popular place for weddings). The Happy Hour drinks menu ends at 4:59 but the... More

Went here for our anniversary dinner. The service was attentive and great, unpretentious yet professional. The food was excellent - very fresh, not heavy, all prepared from local ingredients and presented beautifully. Ocean views are stunning as well and the restaurant clientele seems nice. Highly recommend!

We went here to celebrate my birthday. I'd start with the fact that the food was absolutely great, the best we had in Maui so far. It is a shame our experience was tainted by the service; during most of the night the waiter was noticeably rushing us to finish our food faster and order more of it. Our plates... More

If your in Kapalua Maui this is a must. Be sure and make a reservation days before as it is such a popular restaurant. The views/sunset is incredible. The staff is very attentive and makes your experience enjoyable. Our dinner was delicious the fish was prepared to perfection. Will definitely go again.

Went for dinner with another couple. We had excellent service and it is nice location. Had 4 different entrees and none were great. For these prices I had much higher expectations for the food
