It is what it is. It's an airport bar... but it's okay. It's a great way to spend the last hours of your Hawaiian vacation.

Yes, it is the only obvious place to get your favorite beverage and food while wasting a few hours waiting for your flight home. But, don't ruin the end of your holiday by falling for the shtick Sammy has going here. Mediocre food and watered down drinks served by inattentive servers under the guise that all profit from the restaurant... More

I understand this is the only full service restaurant and bar in the airport, but a 55 minute wait for a burger, then once the waitress realizes she forgot to put your order in she chooses to ignore you the rest of the night?! One hour 45 minutes in and she still hasn't to picked up my check? Holy Hana!!

Service was average, food was good, but it was expensive, a burger and fries was $15.99 and a burger with a side salad instead of fries was $18.99 and a bottled green tea was $5.69. Casual, relaxed atmosphere.

It's not Mama's Fish House. It surely isn't Burger King either. What you get here is a nice atmosphere, ok drink and better that we thought food for a higher than expected price. We had a couple of Bloody Mary's that were ok. Not cheap, but ok. Not worth the price. What was good happened to be the Garlic Fries... More

Good: one of the best loco mocos I've had. Bad: service sucked (for Maui standards). Drink was empty for 20 minutes. Had to order another one. Brought drink over with attitude and no straw or napkin. Didn't check on us the whole time. Seemed like she wanted to get rid of us. Pretty pricy even for Maui standards.

If you have to spend some time at the airport pre-departure, this is a fun place to hang out. Go look around at all of the gold records and other rock memorabilia. Chat with fellow travelers and the kind staff. Prices are high, but hey, it's the airport and it's Maui! It can be a long walk to some of... More

Food is very pricey and not good - neither are the drinks. Had a plate of nachos and two mai-tais - over $50.. really?? If it was any good that might be OK - but these were the worst nachos ever - and the worst mai-tais ever. The vending machines are a better choice. Don't bother with Sammy's.

$17 for a plate of nachos (and more if you want to add meat). Enough said. But for that price, it had better be one great plate of nachos. It wasn't. It was edible, yes, but I've had far better. I don't mind paying a lot for food when it's good, but this just wasn't worth it. I'd recommend going... More

If Barbara is your waitress make sure you do not ask her any questions. It really annoys her. Drinks were good and ts air conditioned so there's that. Did not order any food only drinks.
