Must try

We try to go here at least once every visit. The food is amazing. We always get the lauLau meal and one fish meal. The poke is so delicious, one main reason to go is for the smoked mackerel. The price is amazing for the amount of food and how delicious it is. Just remember, cash only :) The... read more

Stopped in the market to get fresh fish to grill for dinner. The lady at the counter was very helpful. Offering descriptions of the fish and how to cook it. We bought Ono and the marinade she recommended. Also the Wasabi Cream. Delicious!

We needed a picnic for sunset on the beach and KFM was on the way. We arrived 30 minute before closing so it is no surprised not all the items were available. Bummer no fish, no chicken dishes left; only pork. That's okay. Ordered the pork with gravy which were nice chunks of roasted pork served with rice, salad and... More

Best poke and freshest to go fish on the island. The plate lunches are also top notch! Bring cash! The brownies are also yummy. We get our fresh fish here almost every day when we visit the island.

On the recommendation of some friends I tried this place. The counter people seemed to want to rush you with your order and don't like to answer questions. I like poke so I ordered a half-pound of the Maui onion poke, which sounds better than it was. There was no doubt that the fish was fresh but the overall flavor... More

We had walked past this place many times and had not bought anything. However on this trip we decided to cook a fish dinner. We bought some lovely fresh fish and shrimp. The fish and shrimp were lovely. If you plan to cook a meal with fresh fish this is the place to get your fish. Good selection and reasonable... More

This is take-out only eatery. It's literally a little shack and if you're not looking, you would miss it. We went to the Fish Market by recommendation of all the staff from our hotel. The staff was really sweet. We told them we've never been there and they patiently walk us through their display of good eats. The food is... More

We loved the Korean Poke. Went back for more and more. The price was reasonable too. A very tiny place, so look carefully for it.

Koloa fish market was a great find! It's tucked away and very busy, a testament to the great food! We enjoyed the Ahi plate with rice and wasabi cream sauce, greens and macaroni salad for about $10 bucks! The guy behind the counter is super friendly and will help you pick an item if you're not sure what to order....DEFINITELY... More
