50's diner....yahoo

I've had a few meals here on my visits to Maui and I can honestly say that I've yet to be disappointed, it starts with the overall look of the place being something out of the fifty's...think Happy Days TV show....the food is quite good, for what I've ordered anyways and the servers are dressed for... read more

We've been here before on earlier visits to Maui and I was looking forward to it. Our server (Josiah) was good, but the rest, not so much. I saw a number of people waiting to be seated for a long time and although there appeared to be management in the restaurant, they were not taken care of. My wife had... More

Seams to be under new management or something, not sure. Ordered 2 burgers both came out rare, we ordered medium as the waitress suggested and was also informed by her this was there standard and took almost 15 mins at 5 in the afternoon, 4 cooks behind the counter. Waitress was pleasant, but did try to remove my plate twice... More

We ate here before flying off the Island. This was the worst meal we had on the island. We both had burgers which were mediocre. Paid extra for seasoning on the fries and the seasoning was minimal. This is in one of the malls and seems to be a chain.

I can't believe all the positive reviews of this place. We were here March 2015. The menu online looked good. The place was rundown and dirty. There was leftover food on my husband's seat. I got a cobb salad with honey mustard dressing, I am pretty sure the dressing that arrived was just brown mustard in a cup. I would've... More

Love the old school diner feel of the restaurant. The service and staff is attentive and quick, they are even dressed in the 1950s diner uniforms. The food is large portions but delicious too. Great value for money, definitely worth visiting when in Maui.

So much food; great atmosphere and décor. It is located in the Queen Ka'ahumanu Mall; convenient and lots of parking. We noticed that most of the patrons were locals and nothing screams good food at a good price, like seeing that the locals go there.

This place looks like it could be the set from Mel's Diner. Eat at the counter or at a booth. Friendly service with servers dressed in hats or pinstripe dresses. Apparently the beef is grassfed, and locally raised, so that was a plus when we ordered. We all had burgers but they were lacking in flavor. The meat wasn't seasoned... More

We are regular visitors to Maui and up until this last time we had always enjoyed eating at Ruby's. They were closed for renovations earlier in 2014 and when we tried them in Nov.14 we were very disappointed. Easily the worst meal we had on that trip. The atmosphere is funky though and it is perhaps the only sit down... More

went here for a late breakfast, had eggs benedict, food was hot and flavorful, I think about $12 , which is the norm for Maui. Its at the Queen mall, and is a welcome change from the food court there.
