They advertised as the best burger in Maui and to their credit, it did not disappoint!! The menu contained plenty of options, including several different feature burgers which included different types of rolls, toppings, cheeses, etc. And you could order a basket of fries or onion rings, or a combination which we all did and appreciated!! I had the Jailhouse... More

We enjoyed a meal that was both common (burgers and sandwiches) and 'gourmet' as it was excellently prepared. With a couple of picky eaters in tow, Maui was a difficult island to find common fare. Most food we saw on menus was very pricey, and not to the palate of those who prefer good ole pepperoni pizzas, hot dogs, and... More

Those in our party that ordered burgers raved about the quality. This reviewer ordered fish tacos on the recommendation of a stranger and was quite let down. The burgers are large and come in a wide variety. The fish tacos were overloaded with a mayo based sauce, a mushy overcooked salsa and grated cheddar of low quality. The wait staff... More

Looking for a casual meal where the focus is on the food and service? Cool Cat Cafe offers not only the best burger in Maui, but one of the best I've ever had. The first night, my fiancee and I sat at the bar. I had a burger and she had a chicken sandwich. Both were so good that we... More

We ordered the Marilyn (with a chill pepper on the burger), and the Catch of the Day fish sandwich both were excellent. Our waiter was particularly good - the kind of waiter that was efficient, kept our drinks full, and was not annoying. Would return.

This is a great hidden gem of a restaurant. The burgers were the best we have had on Maui. Prices are very reasonable and the service was great. It is a fun spot to visit with its funky decor and atmosphere.

While Cheeseburger in Paradise on Front Street had been a long time favorite hangout, Cool Cats has better food, awesome shakes and floats, and solid service. While it doesn't have the ocean view, the people watching is thoroughly entertaining.

Very few restaurants get better over the years but Cool Cat has Their chili fries in the new bowl are amazing. Had them twice and can't wait to get back. My wife loves the burgers but said don't overlook the sandwiches. They are great too. Nice view of the Banyon Tree and great service.

We went for burgers and shakes, but they have a wide variety on their menu. Great diner atmosphere and very cute decor. The burgers and shakes were excellent. I loved the Don Ho burger---bbq and pineapple flavor is awesome. The pineapple cole slaw was also excellent. This is a fun place for families offers dining inside or out. It is... More
