You're in a cowboy town, so a steak seems like a good idea. Well this time it is. Perfect example of the superiority of independent steak houses over chains. Good beef, well prepared at honest prices. Worth a stop.

Visiting the small village of Makawao is like taking a step back to the Plantation era of Maui, before tourism took the place of farming and ranching. Although most of the stores cater to tourists, it is different than the "tourist trap" strip mall stores in Kihei. The Makawao Steak House is in an older building, well maintained, but appears...

I'm giving 5 stars "excellent" mainly because of the service. I don't eat steak... in fact, only one person in our party got a steak the night we visited. However, all of us enjoyed our meals, and our waiter, Jonathan, was great. Always checking to see how we were doing, and had a wonderful personality that made us feel like... More

Stopped here thinking it was a bistro menu and only ended up buying a drink kinda weird to have to go to he counter to order your food and we didn't see any items that all of us could find something we wanted so we opted for another place to eat .

Homey place, with friendly staff. Omaha beef at the same price as Omaha. Everyone's meal was excellent, cooked just as ordered. Beautiful ribeye steaks, perfectly cooked prime rib. A pot of delicious baked beans, and baskets of homemade bread. $7 cocktails, and $7 desserts, and a $3 salad bar. You don't get the views or the ambiance of the Plantation... More

After paying a dinner bill at mamas Fish House this was a nice change. The steaks were absolutely fantastic and so was our server Cheyenne. It's not fancy, more of a family joint. Loved the reasonable prices.

Had dinner there last night. We went for Makawao 3rd Friday which was cancelled so went to the steak house for dinner. I had prime rib and my friend had rib eye. Both were very juicy and tender. I'm picky about my prime rib and it was cooked to perfection, medium rare. For 3.00 extra you can add their salad... More

Grabbed some take out from here on our way to our hotel. The steak was a perfectly a point and the rest of the meal was equally excellent. Fast and friendly service, they said it would be ready in 15min so we took a walk around the block and the food was already waiting for us when we got back.... More
