Lovely evening

We drove out to Makawao specifically looking for the steak place. We had eaten steak at several very touristy places and were hoping for something a little different. Makawao Steak House delivered. The steaks were delicious, the wait staff was attentive and friendly, and the price was better... read more

My family has raised our own beef for as long as I can remember - and in the 18 years I've lived in Hawaii I've not had a steak this good. What a treat! Great service all around, great food - my new favorite place for dinner!

We had a special family dinner. We asked for a special table. They were very accommodating and we had a table in the back room. We were very pleased. We had a excellent meal, drinks , and the wait staff was very nice and prompt. The only little thing is the salad bar is quite small for a restaurant of... More

Really nice atmosphere in the "lounge" dining area. An open sit-down bar as well, for those not eating. I had the fish special and it was excellent; husband had a t-bone steak served with baked beans and salad bar, also very good. We both were very surprised by the lower than expected cost, this being Maui, after all. Highly recommend.

We enjoy a good steak and the prime rib and Asian style short rib are excellent! Jori does an excellent job serving and we never leave hungry.

Wonderful meal on a Sunday night. We showed up on impulse after a trip to the Ulupalakua winery, and were seated right away despite having no reservation. We had eaten here before a few years ago, at the time it was just us and one other table. Well, Cafe Olei owns it now, and word is out. By the time... More

Try the bar menu with seating in the bar area. Great food and ambiance. The Caesar Salad is superb and goes well with the Prime Rib sandwich. Quantity is great and easily shared between two. Friendly service. Go there a couple of times a month. So if you've been hiking Haleakala and looking for a nice place to grab a... More

Upon learning of my plans to visit Maui, one of my Internet friends recommended the Makewao Steak House. Ah, the beauty of the Internet! Driving into Makewao, an inland community, reminded me more of my Virginia countryside than a tropical island. Rolling hills, a variety of trees, and two-land country roads. The center of town is an arty shopping community.... More

Want to get away from the usual Maui coastal eateries, go to this restaurant to relax and enjoy a top grade and superbly cooked steak. It has a somewhat western restaurant setting, friendly service and a very fresh salad bar. After a long day going to the top of haleahkala Volcano and hiking the summit this is the route to... More
