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! Then the... More

If your're singe or dating or just want a romantic-ish face-to-face getaway this is the place. Once you are done looking at the art on the walls, the fireplace, the people, and the staff, you'll have to look at your partner because there is no other view. Unless you concentrate on your food, which is very good by the way...Cafe... More

Living in South Maui it seems so far to go to Makawao. However, once I heard that the Steak house was now managed under Cafe O'Lei I had to check it out. Dinner was well worth the drive. I had the 12 oz Ribeye, cooked perfectly, and with an amazing sauce on the side. The salad bar was well stocked... More

We came here after a long drive, fortunately it was on the way back to our accommodation and we were looking for a relaxed place to eat. This turned out to be a gem of a restaurant with friendly staff and prompt service. I ordered a 7 lbs steak medium rare (cooked just right) that came with a yummy mushroom... More
