Description: 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.

There is a reason you see this place year after year, it's consistently great! View is not bad either!

We have been going to Kimo's for over 20 years. The service and views are still great but I feel the quality of the fish is not as good for what you pay. If you want fresh fish, then take a drive to Mama's Fish House. They are pricey bur it will be the freshest fish you get on the... More

We have been to Kimo's on several trips over the years. We always feel that it evokes the essence of Maui, particularly the deck bar at sunset. The music is playing, the sunsets are usually beautiful and, on this visit, the server was exceptionally friendly. Wish I could remember her name. The bar menu is good with ample portions for...

The food was wonderful, the view fantastic, and wonderful waitresses. Be sure and share a piece of their famous Hula pie!

Went to Kimo's for lunch in Lahaina, in order to save a little money from the pricey dinner menu. The Hostess and servers were very pleasant and courteous. We were seated immeadiately with an ocean view that was so close to the water that we had to move our table back to avoid getting splashed from the high surf that... More

Our annual trip to Maui ALWAYS includes a great lunch at Kimo's. Fabulous view, staff, and menu selections. Hula Pie is to die for! Service is exceptional. We've been lunching here since the early 1990's and it is always a special treat.

We visited three times we liked it so much! The staff were helpful and friendly every time and made us feel welcome. The restaurant and bar downstairs looks out over the most beautiful sunset and is worth getting there for around 630 to see this. We enjoyed drinks there whilst waiting for our table. The fish is some of the... More

Kimo's was my favorite restaurant in Lahaina, Maui. The restaurant is on Front street, right on the water. By all means reserve a table with a view, and go at sunset. The food was delicious (especially liked the lightly coconut crusted fish with a Thai sauce) and the Hula Pie is a must to share. Friendly attentive service, and great... More

So many people talk about Kimo's but I think unless you're going for the daytime sun/patio, it's probably not worth it. A group of us went for dinner and found it to be average food and slow service. Drinks were wrong a few times. When a vegetarian in our group ordered one side dish and it ended up having meat... More
