Decent menu selections. It is open air on the second floor, so the breeze was nice and comfortable. The fish was pretty good. The cheeseburger was decent. Not as good as they made it sound, but still pretty decent. The sandwiches don’t come with fries, but they had a nice combo with half fries and half onion rings. Service was... More

Back after a long year and craving a burger, fries and root beer float! After an afternoon movie (Exodus) and parched from watching that long walk over the mountains to the sea, it was the perfect place to eat dinner at 6:30. pm. We just beat the crowd as it was 2/3 empty but 30 mins. later when leaving well... More

We read reviews that this was the best burger (voted 10 years running) in Lahaina so had to try it. YES YES YES it is. The burger was delicious, We had The Jail House Rock (mushrooms, cheese on a French roll). We asked for one between us and they split it without our asking. It was enormous. The onions, pickles,...

Family of four enjoyed a great lunch of Luna burgers and basket of Frings (half fries/half onion rings) and milkshakes for everyone. The portions are SO big and you are lucky if you can finish it all! Very nice server😊

The Cool Cat Café is located upstairs. While stopping in another shop to ask directions, that shop owner gave us coupons for free root beer floats from the café. The burgers are huge and very tasty. I had one with BBQ sauce, bacon and onion rings on it. I did not order any sides and it was too big for... More

Good burgers for sure, but my favorite memory of Cool Cat Cafe is the experience. The laid-back, slightly worn atmosphere, good casual food, and a window seat over Front Street―time slows and you're in the moment. That's the Hawaii I love. That experience alone would rate Cool Cat Cafe 5 stars, but unfortunately, your timing has to be perfect to... More

I had in my head before we visited Maui that this was going to be my favorite restaurant. I love cats so that probably had something to do with it. I had a grilled cheese, husband had a burger and we shared a basket of fries/onion rings. It reminded me of a diner type place with greasy food. Cord was... More

Located on the second floor with a nice view of Front Street in the Wharf Cinema Center. Burgers here are delicious and the fries are excellent. If you are fortunate to find a coupon in one of the local tourist magazines or from a street vendor for a free dessert, definitely indulge. The desserts are also very good. Nice relaxing... More

If you happen to be in Lahaina at meal time, make a special point to head over to the Cool Cat Cafe right on the main drag. No doubt, hands down, the best burgers on Maui and maybe in all of the Hawaiian Islands! The staff is great and the selection of eclectic and standard fare burgers is awesome! You... More

We went to Cool Cats the day before we left Maui. The food was so good. My husband had a burger and it was good as well Great drinks. It is very crowded but that is how you know it is good. We are going back next year and will go to Cool Cats sooner.
