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.

Food was fantastic. I had the double lobster tail with rice pilaf. Lobstair tails were perfect. Great service. I won't mention the view because most restaurant that's on oceanfront he views are outstanding...which this place was so I expected no less and boy it did not disappoint.

After returning to Maui after 9 years we visited one of our old favorites and found it to be as good as ever. Yes prices have jumped a lot in 9 years but the food, ambience, view and staff were as good as ever. We made a 5pm reservation but got there at 4:45 when they started serving and were... More

We usually make it a point to stop at Kimo's for their afternoon happy hour whenever we're near Lahaina. The Macnut encrusted calamari is excellent. Can't speak to the dinner menu.

The restaurant's atmosphere, service, food and Beverages, were very good. The Hawaiian themed Decor and the live music set the relaxing tone in the restaurant. The music was classic rock and got the patrons involved, some singing along, some tapping and some were even dancing. Great food and beverage choices on the menu. The food and drinks, that we had,...

Fish and chips are the best! Want to share a meal? They will split it for you! Hula pie? Yum! Look for coupons in the area magazines.

Loved this restaurant in Lahaina and it was worth the crowds to enjoy a wonderful dinner. The fish was outstanding our server attentive and provided us great service. Don't miss out on a hula pie for desert they are mouthwatering and sinful. Had a great table with a water view. Don't miss out on this great place.

Our Air BnB hostess suggested this place for lunch. A nice spot to see the beautiful people and wish you were one. Fish n Chips outstanding. And the bartender was unafraid to exaggerate a jigger. Very casual and a bit pricey, but worth it.
