When I go to Maui I always go Sportfishing. This is one restaurant where the captain of the boat I charter sells his fish. Many of the other captains in the harbor sell their catch there also. They have great mahi-mahi burgers. There other burgers are great also. It is located downtown close to the movie theater so you can... More

Casual dining in Lahaina. Delicious burgers and shakes. Was a nice break from all of the fresh fish on the island. Will definitely return.

We stopped at Cool Cat Cafe for lunch during our shopping in Lahaina. The burgers ARE fantastic and the malts are delicious. The Porky Pig BBQ pork sandwich was good but needed more sauce. (Next time I will ask for an extra side of BBQ sauce.) We asked to be seated in the air conditioned part to the left rather... More

Typical burger /beer joint. Food was good, service was good..all around good. Onion rings are top notch, I would skip the hulu sticks next time (chicken strips on a stick with pineapple slices. Meh..) Nothing fancy but solid value downtown old Lahaina.

It is just a fantastic place! Great and interesting decor with old movie posters, magazine covers, 50's stuff. Live musician every night. Best hamburger I ever had, packed with fresh toppings, amazing hand formed patties, just incredibly good. We were referred here by the ukelele store guy, thanks dude!!!

Very satisfied with the food and service. Didn't need to eat for the rest of the day. Ugh, good stuff.

We enjoyed a fresh fish (Ono) sandwich and onion rings at the cafe. The waitress was friendly and gracious. We enjoyed the ambiance and the fun atmosphere. The fish serving was generous and tasty. I would recommend that you stop in if you're in Lahaina and enjoy this fun place. The onion rings are huge and delicious. The view is... More

I have never written a review before, but I could not resist. The food was great but our server was terrible. He was rude, sarcastic, forgot drinks, threw down drinks and straws, I felt like our presence there was inconveniencing him. I guess I expected more given the crowds this place gets. His bad attitude ruined the ambiance of the... More

We have been coming to Maui for over 16 years, and we eat at "Cool Cat Cafe" at least twice during our two week stay. The burgers are super delicious and juicy with yummy toppings; onion rings are huge, crispy and succulent, and the Oreo Cookie shakes are divine. We never have to wait the full time that we are...

Good burger and decent price. I'm not a huge burger fan but these were pretty good. The prices were not too bad. Parking was a nightmare.
