Good place to party

This is not a real good place for food consumption. They also have a guy Bradda Francis that plays guitar out on the deck. He is awesome and a fun guy. An actual native of Hawaii he will play and sing any song you ask and his voice is exactly like the artist. Amazing guy. Food not so great... read more

Pupu Lounge is an excellent restaurant. All food is prepared fresh daily and prices are very reasonable. Mai Tais are great too. The sad thing is they are closing soon. Please try to visit within the next couple weeks to enjoy a true tradition on Maui. Abigail was fantastic.

The food was very good, as was the variety. The lanai was covered and allowed us to sit as long as we liked, regardless of the weather

First, just want to clarify, we have eaten at food stalls in India that were cleaner, so we are not averse to low-end restaurants! management/ownership must have changed! Stay away from his place if you don't want to spend your trip on the toilet! When we came in 2011, the waiters were all professional, clean and dressed in all black.... More

Fast and quick food local food and inexpensive. I had the "fish of the day" a couple of times. Not far off the beach. I like the porch for eating, drinking, and watching. I was only there in the afternoon.

The sea bass was delicious. The restaurant wasn't the best to look at. Not the cleanest. Service depends on the waiter. We got lucky.

Wandered in off the street for lunch thinking it was related to the busy place out front. Was told by the manager (who looked like he hadn't washed in a week) that the fish and chips was 'legendary' so that's what I ordered.....in the next 45 minutes I had the chance to have a look at the general state of...

I went to this placed based on reviews and being hungry for seafood, I checked it out. My experience was excellent! I got in about 5 p.m. which was great timing because they have an early bird special of 20% off the menu. Being by myself, the staff was very friendly and made me feel like a friend right away....

By the time we had to ask for silver and then ask for napkins our meal was cold. The service was not very good and we were the only customers. I also notices all the light switch and receptacle covers were missing (safety violation).
