A Poke Bowl costs $11.99 and comes with Poke prepared four different ways over a bed of rice with some spicy mayo sauce and some kimchi. My favorite poke was the washibi. I also had the fried shrimp and they were excellent. The Mahi fish and chips was good, but I would be hard pressed to have it again over... More

My wife and I both had the fish-n-shrimp combo and it was very good. I'd go so far as to say that it was probably the best bargain meal that we had the whole time we were in Maui. I wasn't a huge fan of the coleslaw, but it wasn't the worst I've had by a long shot. The space... More

It wouldn't feel like our vacation without stopping here at least 2 times during our stay. Really awesome fresh fish. They have really yum food they prepare as well.

This is a must spot for lunch! Poke was amazing and very reasonably priced. Coconut shrimp was tasty as well. I would pass on the chowder.

I love this small place with all of fresh seafood. I ordered a bowl of Poke (like raw sashimi on top of a bowl rice) and it was just great. You must visit if you come to Kihei.

We love our fish and chips in England, this is as close as one can find, especially in Hawaii. The fish is always fresh and delcious. We bring the family here once or twice on vacations and always enjoy the food. We have also gotten the poke which is excellent. I would recommend this location to anyone passing through. Great...

We eat here all the time when in Maui. It's a great place to stop for a reasonably priced lunch or early dinner on your way home from a five trip or the South Wailea beaches. I'm a chowder snob and love the seafood chowder. It's all good. Also, if you'rer seeking an exotic piece of fresh fish for the... More

We wanted fish for lunch and we decided to try this place out. If you are looking for fresh fish this is the place to visit. On the day we visited they had onakapaka as their catch of the day. You can order the traditional fish and chips or they can prepare the fish broiled or grilled. Parking here can... More

The poke at Eskimo Candy was to die for. One of the best Poke I had during my visit in the Hawaiian Islands. The wasabi sauce on the rice plus the seaweed salad complemented the poke bowl well. This is definitely why Eskimo Candy is a MUST try. I found that the cooked food (i.e. fish and chips, chowder) was... More

We chose to visit Eskimo Candy during our recent trip to Maui due to great reviews we had read. We were extremely disappointed. We ordered Calamari for an appetizer and it was not cooked enough at all. My husband ordered a platter with several different items on it. His scallops came out looking like little pieces of charcoal. Definitely won't... More
