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 was a long wait for the restaurant so we sat outside in the bar area. The bar has a limited menu. The burger was good not great. Orders a house special drink coconut flavor enhanced with basil.

the food is fine -- not terrible but not great either. If you can get a outside table, I bet you could have a very enjoyable meal watching a sunset, but if the only tables are inside, no reason to go here. I've rarely been to a restaurant with such a stark difference in atmosphere from one area to another.... More

Best Cheeseburger I ever had! Best dessert, too! On the water! I'm local so I am pretty hard to please. I had fun! Great service. Tables were not too close. Got seated because we agreed to eat at the tables in the bar area...what suffering! Great menu, fast service and unobstructed view of the sunset on the water! Love this... More

I read the other trip advisor reviews before we got here and I'm pleased to say they were accurate. I had the Parmesean crusted fish and my husband had the teriyaki steak...Both were great!! He finished it off with the kulua pie and our waiter Ryan was great. Would recommend!!!

Great views with very friendly staff. They have a ground level for drinks and the sunset and an upstairs for more formal dining. Highly recommended.

Kimo's has a nice setting and great food. Servers were very friendly. We ordered Calamari and Tiger Shrimp appetizers. We ordered the Island Fish Plate (Mahi-mahi) and a Coconut Crusted Swordfish. We also ordered the chef special Hula Pie (decadent). Mai Tai and Tropical Itch cocktails. All the food was delicious and cocktails were unique.

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
