Had a super lunch today of fresh ono fish & chips and coconut shrimp & fries. Seafood sauce for shrimp was excellent, seemed to have extra hot horseradish…what a great idea! Tartar sauce also tasty, it appeared to have yellow mustard in it! Yummy. We ordered fresh ono for pick up tomorrow. Not only a awesome place to eat, but... More

Hard to find place with limited eating area and paper plates, but quality of fish is great. A tad expensive, but better deal than the fancy places.

Very small hard to find. Off the beaten track in Kihei just one block south of Lipoa St. On Kihei road head west past road comes to a T intersection with a school at the end. Eskimo Candy is on the right before the T intersection. Wonderful fresh catch of the day. Order and share. Quit large is you are... More

Get there early to get your seafood right off the boat. The seafood is expensive, but it is definitely fresh and they do run out fairly quickly. I always get fried oysters anyplace that has them and they were probably the best ever here. Also had the fish tacos and they were excellent. Very casual with walk up counter service... More

The place I super casual. We had the ono plate and the chowder. Both were out of this world. And the prices are right, something a little unusual for Maui. If you want an inexpensive, laid back place, go here, Be aware that it closes at 7 P M.

The food was amazing, especially the poke bowl. A must have when you are there. The staff was great as well though I wouldn't say the pricing was fantastic. Fair for Hawaii and definitely not expensive but not cheap either. Still, a must have when on Maui or in Kihei for sure.

Don't go there for great atmosphere (although the pirate statue and plaster shark heads on the wall were fun). There are only a couple tables, so take-out is the way to order here. Go prepared for excellent food - very varied menu and everything was delicious. Hubby said the fish and chips were fresh and the best he'd ever had.... More

This place started out catering to locals but tripadvisor/yelp brought in the tourists. I live in Kihei and this is one of my go-to places.

This tiny place serves daily, fresh caught fish along with some beef dishes. The seafood is why you go. Order and seat yourself or carry it out.. Went twice on our trip for lunch and considered one of our favorite places . Had the tuna poke which was incredibly fresh and fantastic. The fish and chips and fish tacos were... More

As other reviewers have said, this place has the best poke. There is a sampler bowl that offers 4 varieties of poke with rice for $10. It's an excellent value and excellent lunch / dinner option if you're in the Kihei area. We also had the coconut shrimp and it was delicious. However, it was the poke that really got... More
