Great dinner in a delighful spot...

We enjoyed a delightful evening here...in the charming ambiance of old Paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) town Makawao...the menu choices were plentiful, the dinner delicious, and the service was friendly, helpful and attentive...A lovely way to spend a memorable evening..!

Makawao Steak House does great steaks. They also have many other delicious offerings. The calamari is wonderful. Another favorite is the french onion soup. When I am in the mood for something different, I order the Asian short ribs - delicious! Their salad bar is pretty basic, but fresh and has enough offerings to make for a really nice addition...

This was the perfect compromise for my meat and potatoes loving husband and my vegetarian self. They get extra bonus points for being the only steak house I have ever been to that actually has a vegetarian entrée on the menu (in most places I have to just order over-priced sides, but not here). In addition, they have a small,... More

A very nice drive up the mountain brings you to this little town with an excellent steakhouse. Great food and excellent service. Drinks were also very good - strong actually.

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

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 than anywhere else we tried on the island. If you are tired... 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
