We had dinner here. It is likely a great place for lunch or a full moon night since it is right by the ocean. The food was great and the service very friendly. We did have to ask for bread three times before it arrived. Would go back and would recommend to all. It is on the expensive side but... More

We tried to go to Merriman's during Christmas 2013, but because the PGA tour had booked up the restaurant, we were able to get a table. During the holidays in 2014-15 I figured I'd get it right by booking a table three weeks in advance, Was astounded to hear that they did not have a table for five until 8:30... More

You just can't help but notice how attentive and accommodating the staff are. From the hostess who kindly reseated us to the valet parking attendant, the staff exceeded my expectations from start to finish! And the food was to die for:)) I don't particularly love fish and will usually order an entree with chicken or meat, but after nearly a... More

We happened to dine at Merriman's by pure chance. We decided to spend our day at Kapalua beach (which was a great change of pace from Kaanapali), and noticed Merriman's so checked out the menu. Their happy hour on the pointe began at 3 pm and so did we. We got a table with an umbrella out on the desk.... More

We went for a special dinner during the holidays. This place was fantastic. Beautiful restaurant and a gorgeous view of the ocean and sunset. Service and food were impecable. Couldn't believe the wine list. Comparable to a big city restaurant. A definite recommend for the foodie and wine drinking and of course the sunset view.

Great location, but everything just seems a bit tired and dated. Food was uninspired, drinks were just OK. Staff at the bar was super nice and fun. We were hoping for more, as we really like Monkeypod by Merriman's down in Wailea. This restaurant just seems like its sad old stepsister...

We were on Maui for 2 weeks and the last night of the stay was the only time we could get a reservation for 4. We had our 3 and 6 year old with us and they were very kid friendly. I've seen other reviews that said they were not - there were kids everywhere. Food is high-end but accessible.... More

At the risk of being kicked off of Maui, I'm going to say that our supper at Merriman's a few nights ago was underwhelming. Our least favorite of the trip so far, to be honest. In several trips to Kauai, Maui and Hawaii Island, we have never gone to any of the Merriman's but not for any particular reason. This... More

Amazing fresh fish, beautiful location. Would be a great date restaurant or for couples but was fun just for friends as well.

We have been going to this wonderful restaurant for many years. Although a little on the pricey side, it's very much worth it. The quality of the food is one of the best my wife and I have had. We always look forward to returning to Merrimen's when we visit Maui. The only issue we had this year was the... More
