I love this Up Country Tried and True Restaurant. I have been going for the last 7 years and it has been around for a lot longer.... 25 to be exact! Had the Calamari tonight and it was awesome. Perfectly cooked in a great sauce placed atop a bed of baby spinach. It could have been a meal. My ahi... More

Great food and service. Enjoyed the macadamia nut encrusted mahi and pineapple upside down cake. Service was the best received Maui during our trip. Recommended by our hotel concierge desk and we love it!

The restaurant is run by the Gannon's who also own a restaurant at a Wailea Golf Course. It is located in an old general store below Makawao in the Up Country. It opened in 1988. We had a very good meal of Blackened Ahi and Scallops. Service was attentive and prices expensive. $42 for ahi entree is a little high... More

We had done the pineapple tour in the morning and this was a recommended lunch stop by the tour guide. Oh my - so glad we did!!! Perfect timing with the ending of the tour and they open at 11. We both had the seafood coconut curry.... Fantastic!!! It was fresh mahi mahi (catch of the day) in a creamy... More

On the 2 weeks i spent in hawaii for my honeymoon i ate at alot of good restaurants both upscale and casual. Out of all of them my wife and i are in agreement that this was by far our best experience. The location is a bit out of the way but in my opinion it only adds to the... More

if you can try to sit in the front room which has much more atmosphere than the back room. We sat in the back room which has an "institutional" feel. The watermelon tomato arugula feta salad was very good. My husband's tuna was good. My sea bass special was poor. Too many flavors going on.. spicy tomato (?) sauce for... More

My wife and I decided to try Hali'maile General Store after hearing from friends that it was one of their favorite places. Although it's about a one hour drive from Kaanapali we decided to do some things "on the other side" first to make our trip more productive. We had a 5:30 reservation, which is the time they start to... More

This place was recommended to us and we weren't disappointed. Super busy but very accommodating. Pulled Pork Enchilada Pie for him and Seafood Curry for her. Service great and would certainly recommend.

Eating at the General store was part of a package deal with the Maui Pineapple Tour but we were so glad we did. The service was amazing. The food was so beautifully presented we had to take a picture. But more importantly it tasted fantastic. You must try it.

We have frequented the General Store quite a few times over the years and can say without hesitation it is our favorite restaurant on Maui (and we have been to all the top spots in Kaanapali, Kapalua and Wailea). This visit was no exception - there is always something for everyone with island fish, beef, lamb and vegatarian well covered.... More
