We have been to Merriman's many times and it has always been excellent but the last two times we were informed that they have removed JD from the bar, now this is probably the most asked for whiskey in the world, so when you want to go for cocktail hour and you can't have your favorite beverage... read more

Also~ Merriman's can accommodate a large party for weddings or...just the most romantic night for two! ...don't forget to finish the meal down by the... More

This was one of the best restaurants that I have ever eaten at! Not only is the ambiance beautiful in the cove, but the food was out of this world good! We normally don't eat an appetizer AND dessert, (usually pick one or the other), but everything was well portioned, not oversized, so we were able to have both and... More

Nice setting and good service however the food was not up to the price point. The appetizers are good the main dishes were lacking. Fish special was over cooked and over sauced. The tuna was charred on the outside and took away from the flavor. Go here early for sunset specials on the lawn- find somewhere else to go for... More

Merriman's is in a spectacular location overlooking the water in the Kapalua resort area (about five miles north of Lahaina). The food was excellent (especially the desserts) and priced accordingly -- but I do have to quibble about the portion sizes (small) vs. the price. I had lamb chops...excellent, but three "lollipop"-sized chops raised locally and priced around $46 was... More

The location is wonderful. Sunset was beautiful from here. We were return customers. They have lovely food. David G. provided expert service. We thought the musician was quite good.

We only went for appetizers, but after the excellent preview, we decided on dinner. Expensive, yes, but worth it. Would we go again yes, Order fish definitely, it is so fresh. Pork quesadilla definitely worth it. Salads, very fresh. And the view of the ocean, fantastic.
