My husband and I brought 4 teenage grandchildren to Maui recently and the kids selected Cool Cats as a "restaurant to visit." And were they correct in their selection! The burgers were outstanding! The kids commented that they had never tasted a burger quite so delicious. And the size of the burger was huge. Quite a Dagwood Bumstead experience!

I can't believe anyone thinks these burgers are amazing....sorry, they are just okay. What a disappointment the place was - no 50's music, no waiters wearing 50's unies....I would not go there again. If you have kids, I guess it's a good place to go. The families we saw parked the out of control kids in one booth and the... More

Cool Cats is one of my favorite places to eat on Front Street. It is very casual and relaxed. There was a person singing the night we were there - added to the atmosphere. Great burgers, amazing shakes, crispy french fries and onion rings, reasonable prices, mixed alcoholic drinks/beer available, vegetarian entrees, friendly staff, and a wonderful view of the... More

We took in this cafe for lunch, and while my family were all quite pleased with the burgers...my caution for visitors is to steer clear of the fish tacos! Being on Maui I thought fish tacos in general was a safe bet, but these were so greasy and the smell of the fish overpowering. My experience with strong smelling fish... More

Visited Cool Cat Cafe 3/26/2015 in Lahania, HI for a quick burger & fries. Burger cooked to order, juicy and had a good taste....however to my taste buds, they still can't beat the taste and/or quality of Cheeseburger in Paradise, located in Lahania and Wailea, HI.. Server very friendly but service overall was slow!!

This is our second trip to Maui and each time we have eaten twice at Cool Cats. All 4 times have been terrific. The prices are reasonable, especially for Lahaina. The quality of meat is great. Get the order of half fries/half rings and split them. The view is nice and open air. Location is convenient to downtown. Lastly, this... More

Family of 4. 3 enjoyed special burgers. 1 pretty good teriyaki grilled mahi mahi sandwich. Ordered a side of 1/2 fries 1/2 onion rings. Onion rings were overly fried. But the milkshakes- yum! Make your own or choose from their specialities. Cookie Monster was our favorite!
