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.

We were staying at Naplili Bay but it seemed to be raining there all the time, so we came into Lahaina and had lunch at Kimos . We both enjoyed our meals, one steak one fish and the drinks. and the view is great. The service is always good here, nothing is too much trouble.

My family and I went here for dinner and it was delicious! The day after My mom, my sister and I went back and I ordered the fish and chips and I didn't like it. I told the waiter and ordered the burger instead. 5 minutes laster it comes and is delicious. The view is amazing and very family friendly.

Lahaina Town has a ton of great options for a meal. My wife and I almost randomly chose Kimo's on the waterfront for an evening meal. We could not have chosen better! Although it was quite busy and rather full, the staff got us right in and seated upstairs near the balcony, which the staff peeled back and made an... More

We had been to Leilani's and a few of their other restaurants of theirs but never to Kimo's despite two prior trips to Maui. We went with our 2 young children (21 months and 6 years old) and 6 other adults. Everyone enjoyed their dinner and drinks. I had made the reservation on open table and called the restaurant to...

We came here twice for lunch. Maui tourist prices, but fine food, great service, and a lovely view on the water. I had fish brushettas $12 which are fine if you don't have a large appetite. My friend ordered a turkey and bacon focaccia and thought it was very good. Chardonnay was $7, Mai tai was 9.5, and margaritas were... More

Just came back to Maui after 20 years with my wife and teenagers. The Mahi Mahi with lobster was great. Wife had chicken and one of the kids had the Cioppino. Both were happy. Nice food, great view and great service. Hope to make it back much sooner than another 20 years.

Kimo's was recommended to us and we got a table overlooking the water. The pinacolada was first class and the coconut shrimp was delicious! The service was friendly and attentive and the prices reasonable. We were happy just sitting there! Having great food was a bonus.

We stopped by after being referred to Kimo's by people we met on a zipline tour. We thought the view was outstanding. It was a cloudy day but we still felt like we were at the beach. The waitress and bartender were just great. Food was good but not amazing. I think we were expecting a little more given the... More

My husband and I searched online for restaurants where we could celebrate a romantic milestone anniversary dinner. After reading numerous recommendations, we made a reservation online. The hostess greeted us with a heartfelt "Happy Anniversary" when we checked in and we were seated on the ocean side of the upper deck where we watched a gorgeous sun set. The food... More
