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.

Ordered the smoked fish appetizer which was small, but yummy. The fresh fish sandwich that we ordered was very tasty, as was the fresh fish dish. Sat by the water which was beautiful. Service was friendly.

Nothing beats great weather sitting overlooking the water and sipping a drink. Today was like that at kimos for lunch. The service is friendly. We wanted a light lunch and ordered the sashimi. It is a small portion but I was told how many pieces to expect. Lovely and fresh. My husband had the Caesar chicken salad which he enjoyed.... More

Kimo's has been one of our FAVORITE stops in Lahaina for years. We love the food, Mai Tais, and especially the tiki glasses. We Stopped in for drinks and snacks this week and were so disappointed. Not only were the Mai Tais very weak, but they are now served in plastic tiki cups. No more glass, just cheap plastic. What... More

We had dinner at Kimo's on our last night on vacation - and it was a great meal. We called to make a reservation, and when we arrived they offered up a choice of tables. They were very accommodating with our infant. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the drinks were some of the best we had in Maui. Overall a... More

I like the friendliness and atmosphere of Kimos, and love the veranda seating and views. The menu is reasonably priced and the food is Hawaiian and American comfort food. Good place to stop in Lahaina.

Had dinner at this location and the views at sunset were stunning. The food was great, strongly suggest the Poki and avocado tower, was one of the best appetizer that I had in a long time.

We dined here the other night with friends of ours who live on the island. We took a ride into town and checked out this place. Friendly staff and good food, nothing amazing, but all good.

Kimo's is one restaurant I always visit when in Maui. This time it was the best meal we had on our vacation. The monchong fish was prepared perfectly, very moist and delicious. The sides were also tasty. The service was very attentive and friendly. The waitress gave me details about the preparation on the fish so I could try to... More

We recently had dinner here on our first visit to Maui. Our server was wonderful--so friendly and helpful! We had a table on the water with a great view. We split an appetizer and each ordered an entrée My husband had fish and I had the steak. The food was pretty good, but not amazing. I would probably try somewhere... More
