Wish the place was bigger

The only bad thing about this place is that it's so small, and very busy. We ordered shrimp and fish tacos and a side order of fried oysters. Everything tasted fresh, service was quick and we left full and happy! Shrimp tacos came with fries or rice and cole slaw, way too much to eat for one... read more

Close to main highway, but a hidden gem the locals frequent. Plug address into your GPS and try this place. We watched guys unloading fresh catches of the day into the back of the building. I had excellent fish tacos and they couldn't be any more fresh. The prices are excellent and the décor really quirky and fun. One can... More

Had a fantastic fried ahi plate, and my wife had the ahi tacos. We also enjoyed the seafood chowder. Delicious, reasonably priced and a nice local atmosphere. Highly recommend the food.

Eskimo Candy has amazing seafood!! There isn't too much seating but you can sit outside too. It's a super cute little restaurant and the workers were really helpful and accommodating. They pushed tables together for my group, which was super nice of them! The crab cakes were absolutely amazing! This place was a huge thumbs up!

If you're a fish lover, then Eskimo Candy is the place for you! Clean, fresh, and delicious with excellent service! On a recent vacation, we tried Eskimo Candy and liked so much that we just had to go back before we left. Both visits left us wanting more so we'll definitely be hoing back on our next trip to Maui!

A friend who had previously visited Maui strongly suggested we try Eskimo Seafood. We were glad we did!!! It is a counter service restaurant with self-serve beverages. There are about 4 outside tables and 4 inside tables. We ate in, but they prepare food to go as well. They offered to push tables together for our party of 6. My... More

Unusual name for a seafood restaurant. Small, unassuming place with many seafood choices, including fresh catch of the day, and daily specials. Great value for what you get when compared to a white linen tablecloth restaurant. Friendly staff.

Purchased two cuts of fresh Ahi Tuna. The tuna looked great until I got it home. I then discovered that no trimming of the bad black parts of the fish was done. When I ordered it I requested trimming be done and clearly it wasn't. After paying over $35 for two small cuts of Ahi I won't buy it here... More

I found this little place while google searching for best food in Kihei. I was pleasantly surprised and have been there four times during my stay on Maui. Small, casual, non-pretentous and friendly, Eskimo Candy caters to locals but welcomes tourists. I loved the ahi fish tacos the ono and the shrimp tacos. This was the only place I dared... More
