We ate downstairs on our first visit. More casual and a little less pricey. Fish and chips were excellent. On our next visit we opted for upstairs and more upscale. Food was nicely prepared and service was excellent. Wish the wind had not come up causing them to lower the plastic protection. We lost our beautiful view of the sunset.

we popped in here for happy hours the drinks were made well and the service was great. Had great battered onion rings and a Hula Pie which is an ice cream style pie on a cookie crust with iced fudge on top. Fantastic local dessert. Great view and great local happy hour band.

They had the best fish tacos of the trip. They seemed focused on using fresh local product in their meals, and the type of fish in the tacos and with the menu changed daily. Eat upstairs in the restaurant section if you can - the view is amazing! FYI This restaurant is not in Lahaina, it is ocean-front Whaler's Village... More

This place blew us away. The service was excellent. We had a toddler so we sat chose to sit inside rather that the beach view. I felt we lucked out because I heard some people talking about being too cool as the sun faded away. At first I thought the menu was a little small; but now I know why.... More

Great place on the beach. They actually have two restaurants with two entrances. One is a dinner menu and the other is a more casual menu. We dined in the dinner menu area and had a great time. My fish was a little fatty or possible just not cooked as much as I prefer. I will remember to ask for... More

Shorter wait than the upstairs restaurant, and the food was less expensive. Good portions and service.

I believe Leilani's is partnered with The Hula Grill next door. Similar foods, great views as it's right on the beach. Great entertainment.

My wife, brother in law and sister in law just returned from a fabulous dining experience at Leilani's. We each had something different and from appetizers to dessert, our meal was terrific. We will certainly come back. Our server Frank was top notch and the view and whale sightings from our table were an added bonus!

Cold beers for four and hot burgers all around. Mid range for price with very good fast service. A little tight for tables - if they took out two tables and spread the space around it would make for a much more enjoyable spot for lunch. Give up on the greed and go for the quality!
