Right on the water and in the heart of historic Lahaina, Kimo’s brings you and your o’hana (Hawaiian for family) a casual, completely Maui dining experience. Renowned our “postcard” views of Lanai and Molokai, we offer a menu featuring fresh Hawaiian fish, prime rib, prime steaks and the original Hula Pie, Kimo’s has been a Maui must-do for over 30 years. The upstairs main dining room shows the architectural influence of New England on the former whaling port, with koa-lined walls, missionary-style furnishings and maritime memorabilia. After dinner, Kimo’s lanai becomes a very cool hotspot for tropical cocktails and Hawaiian music. Live entertainment is offered on weekends and select week nights.

On a recent trip to Maui this was our splurge meal out chosen mostly for the location - but beware you need to specify window seating in your reservation or you will be back from the window which is ok but not as great. The hostess who seated us was surely and unfriendly but after that the servers of the... More

This was our second visit to Kimo's. Our first visit was two years ago, the staff, food and atmosphere didn't disappoint. We were seated immediately, although they told us when we arrived there was a 30 minute wait time we went to leave and suddenly there was an available table. We sat upstairs, overlooking the Pacific. Our waiter was very... More

My wife and I stopped here for an early lunch while shopping on the ocean front in Lahaina. We were seated right away at an outside table close to the ocean and the server took our drink order within minutes. The calamari appetizer came in huge, tender pieces about the size and shape of chicken fingers. I had the fish... More

Just to qualify, this review is for happy hour only. Can't beat the location as it is in the center of Old Lahaina town. Bar bites are extremely reasonable and tasty. We had the chicken and the ribs. The ribs were very tasty that I ordered a second one. The chocolate cake was to die for and we got it... More

We are not foodies, so maybe we just didn't appreciate what we had. Dinner for 4 was over $225.00. It was ok, but I really expected to be wowed! None of the four of us thought it was wonderful, but we all agreed the view and the location were worth it. We showed up without reservations and were given a... More
