Went for dinner the other night and was very happy we did, great service, super nice staff and very relaxing. It's been over a year since I was there and was happy to see a new menu, basic but good. Salad bar is still very basic, but fresh. Had the calamari app, nice and fresh, Ordered the T-bone steak, cooked... More

There were 4 of us and we jus wanted a light dinner. The Steakhouse has a very nice salad bar, so the ladies opted for salads and appetizers only. All the portions were large enough to bring some home. The bucket of calamari was great and the fried oysters just fabulous. I had the Kobe beef burger ($14) and will... More

Looking in the front windows of this restaurant before they open is misleading, because behind what appears to be a darkish confined room is a spacious, warm and windowed dining room with a fireplace. They offer a decent salad bar that you can get alone or as an add-on to your entree, which I did with fish & chips that... More

Makawao Steak House knows their steak. My fiancé and I stopped in after a long day of driving and were not disappointed with our decision. We were both craving steak, and MSH delivered. That said, the sides were just so-so. Our veggies were overcooked, and the other items were greasy and could have benefited greatly from some seasoning. Overall, it... More

We enjoyed our delicious and perfectly seasoned steaks (T-bone and NY). The onion soup was superb, a lot of umami flavors from the sweet Maui onions, melted cheese, broth and the flakey buttery puff pastry. It's a perfect starter for our dinner. Their baked potato, beans and asparagus were very good too. Service was above average, she was attentive and... More

We had a very nice dinner hear based on a recommendation from a local. We had the steak, mahi mahi fish and chips, salad bar, and mango-orange creme brulee. The steak was cooked perfectly. The mahi mahi had a good, crisp coating and was displayed nicely. The salad bar is a simple bar, but worth it. Overall, this was a... More

From the moment we entered Makawao Steak House until we left we felt the Aloha. Our server, Mitchell, was fantastic. We were meeting friends here for dinner and Mitchell could tell we had a lot of catching up to do, so he gave us all of the time we needed before getting our meal service started. Excellent play!
