Recently ate at Mama's Fish House while on Maui. It is a place where my husband always has to eat when we are on Maui. We had great service (Brad), ambiance is always great and the location is gorgeous. The entrees and appetizers were good, but pricy for what you receive. Be prepared to spend $140 and up (excluding drinks)... More

Mama's is not a quaint experience that you might expect from the web site and the name. We were surprised (pleasantly) at it being so different than what we had imagined. Mama's Fish House is an industry. This is a large restaurant but beautifully done-the best on the island. While it is at the beach, there is no sunset on... More

Mama's was exactly what I expected from reading reviews. Kitchy, Hawaiian theme décor, over priced but delicious tiki drinks, over priced but tasty seafood. We requested a sunset view to celebrate our 10th anniversary. We were seated a bit more inside than desired, but nonetheless, had a view. We started with the obligatory mai tai. We ended our trip here,... More

My wife and I visited Mama's Fish House during our honeymoon in Maui. I read all the good reviews this place had but wasn't prepared for the experience. I'm from the east coast and have eaten at quite a few great seafood restaurants over the years, but the food here was the best I've ever had, barring none. We arrived... More

Although expensive, the food and service was outstanding so worth every penny. The ambience and setting is unlike any other place you will experience. We have dined here a few times, and it has gotten better over the years. Since it was our anniversary, we arrived at our table with a sweet note of congratulations from the owner. It was... More

The location is out of the way but they still served 575 people on the night we were there so that reveals a lot. The atmosphere is beautiful right on the beach with many coconut palms and incredible ocean views. The service was excellent. The food was amazing. I had the grilled octopus appetizer which was good. The signature dish... More

The first kind of feeling you get walking in is comfort, there's no stuffiness and no feeling to act like I need to sit up really straight and talk in small voices. Considering the restaurant to me is a five star restaurant with prices being a bit lower than what you would expect from the quality and presentation as well... More

We made our reservation before heading to Maui and mentioned that it'd be our anniversary trip. When we arrived there, we were already taken away by the beautiful scenery and settings of this restaurant! After waiting for only a few minutes, we were directed to our table and found a sweet little card saying "Happy Anniversary"!very thoughtful way to start... More

Mama's Fish House deserves every great review they have gotten! The food was fabulous and you can't beat the view! My husband and I shared an appetizer of Grilled Polynesian Beef in Papaya which was fabulous and had some heat to it. For our main course, I had the Crab and Lobster stuffed mahimahi and my husband had the filet... More
