Stopped in here while shopping at the whalers village. We both decided to have the chicken and rice as it came with macaroni salad. It was delicious! The sauce on the chicken was delicious, the rice was really tasty and the macaroni salad was the perfect accompaniment. To our surprise a live band showed up and started playing.. Usually live...

We ate here a few times. The burgers are good as is the fish tacos. The wait is usually less than the hula grill across the path. The one thing about this place though is if you present your receipt at the second visit you get free hula pie ....mmmmmmm Oh yeah if you drink beer the black rock lager... More

Whether the helpful man at the bar or Nicole serving us the experience was enjoyable.had anice bottle of wine and ordered the fresh fish tacos (very nice). The service was very nice and made you feel at home. Could see she was someone suited to the business as opposed to those persons who go through the motions.

We had an early dinner at Leilani's beach front bar during their Aloha Hour on Saturday, May 23rd. Beverages were good (though a bit weak on alcohol), pupus and dinner were tasty, service great, and the music was excellent - wish I could remember the name of the band!!

This restaurant was good, not great. The service was very good, however. It is right next to the boardwalk, which many people would enjoy. it was just a very busy restaurant that turned a lot of tables. Very good for families however.

I had the lobster tail and filet mignon...for dessert we shared a Hula pie. Everyone's dish was scrumptious. Like most ocean front dining, the view was amazing.

We ate at Leilani's on our honeymoon and it was excellent. We got a seat on the outside edge that had a great view. The food was great and the service was as well.

If you crave variety, return to Leilani's and order something different. This was my favorite dining experience in Lahaina! Fish tacos are a no brainer, but everything was delicious.

Leilanis on the Beach is gorgeous . Its always on the list of places to go when going to Maui . The food is cooked to perfection and the service is amazing. The view overlooks kaanapali beach and on a clear day, the island of Lanai.
