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.

Get the coconut crusted fish!

My husband and I had such a great meal at Kimo's that we ended up going back again for the coconut crusted fish. We also had the fish tacos which were good. The restaurant is right on the water and our hotel had given us a coupon for a free hula pie which was delicious. Those coupons can be... read more

Right on the ocean, so close we got a little spray. Food was pretty good, but the location was what stood out.

We chose Kimo's due to reviews on their ability to handle a gluten free diet. The food and service here was top notch. We were seated near the back of the restaurant so didn't have as good a view of the beach as we had hoped. Next visit we would wait for a better table. The Parmesan Crusted fish was... More

I have been going to Kimo's in Lahaina, for the last 25 years. Sitting on their patio in the afternoon, overlooking the ocean is worth every penny. The food at the bar is excellent and is really a good value. However, in the evening, I would skip dinner. Yes it is a pretty place to eat, but I would avoid... More

We went here for happy hour on our last day. I had a pink lemonade type cocktail and he had a local beer. Appetizers were awesome! We had the grilled chicken sticks and potato skins, and we split the cheeseburger. They actually brought the cheeseburger out on two plates, cut in half, with plenty of fries for each of us,...

Wow, we asked for Dream Coladas and they nailed it. For appetizers, you may want to try the Coconut shrimp or Macadamia Nut Calamari. The Caesar Salad was above average. Our entrees came from the Catch of the Day, and were prepared superbly...Parmesan Crusted Ono and Kimo's Style Mahi. I thought both were equally good but my wife liked the... More

Stepping in to Kimo's was charming. The searing obviously laid out narrowly to afford the majority of diners good views of the sun setting over the water. I recommend a reservation if you want to ensure a table at a specific time. We ordered both steaks and fish and could not have been any happier with our meals. The steaks... More

We've been coming to Kimo's for over 30 years and it never disappoints! My wife and I both had Prime Rib - perfectly prepared, kids had a variety of seafood dishes and were all very happy. Hula Pie topped off the fun evening. Pictures of the sunset from the upstairs rail and attentive service added to a great family vacation... More

What a great spot for lunch or dinner right on the water. Great fish tacos! Most accommodating and friendly service. Would definitely recommend this as a must try in Lahaina. Look for the whales while dining!
