During our last vacation to Maui, my husband and I decided to check out Eskimo Candy. My husband had the Makawao Baby Back Ribs, which he said was wonderful. I tried the Poke Bowl. It was the best I have ever had. They prepare it with ahi tuna prepared four different ways. It was wonderful!!! I have had Poke at... More

Stopped by and ordered their famous Mahi mahi fish and chips. Food was good but certainly not over the top! Actually the fish was a little dry. We did not try any of their other dishes so can't comment on them. Very casual and meals are served in styrofoam containers. Certainly priced well! Might go back some time to sample... More

Eskimo Candy is a local place off the main roads. I liked the atmosphere and the decor. Funky and playful. We went for lunch. It was 1:00 so not the very end of the day. No wait. The fresh fish must be good as there were only 2 varieties available. 4 were available in the am. Prices ran $20-25 a... More

Everyone in our family could find something delicious. I especially love the Poke Bowl. The fish & chips is yummy too. Great place for lunch. Not a lot of seating inside, but more outside if needed. We make it a point to visit at least twice a week when we are in Maui. We like the fact that we order... More

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...
