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 only on Maui for 5 days, and had lunch here twice. Both times I had the fish tacos, once with Ahi, once with the Kimo's style Opah. Both times were delicious. We sat on the patio, which provides a great view, but if you sit too close to the wall, don't be surprised if you get splashed by... More

Kimo's was recommended by friends and read good reviews on the internet, so we definitely wanted to try it. Ate there for lunch, fish taco's for both of us, and was not disappointed. Fast friendly service, great food, reasonable prices, and a great atmosphere to give that ultimate aloha feeling. I definitely recommend this restaurant for your trip.

great place, good drinks. If you go to Maui, don't miss the sunset in this place having some drinks and appetizers. It's amazing.

Yes everybody knows about Kimos but you really should go early for their happy hour. Great deals and its usually empty out on their amazing patio. At sunset you will need a reservation but usually you can find one. Its great food and fun drinks always draw the crowd but especially for first timers you have to go. Its one... More

This was on a recommendation sheet we received and had 2 $ next to it. When we got there the prices were a bit more than we expected for being rated 2 $. Being on vacation we said why not and the food was excellent. The steak basically melted in my mouth. My sister had seafood she said it was... More

We went for dinner one night and the food was delicious. The view is fantastic and so was the service. I would recommend you go at sunset as it has amazing views. A bit expensive, but it is average price for a nice restaurant on Maui.

my gf and i had lunch at kimo's while exploring Lahaina. I had a few Longboard drafts and my gf had a pina colada, which see said was very good (she's picky). I also ordered beer battered fish and chips made with mahi mahi, and my gf had the Paniolo "Hawaiian Cowboy" burger, specifically cooked to her taste. She loved... More
