Lunch at the Ma'alaea General Store and Cafe

We had a great sandwich! It was very pleasant to sit outside and enjoy the ambiance on our first day in Maui.

The grilled fish tacos were very disappointing this time. Need to teach the NEW cooks how to make these. TOOOO many raw onions in pico de gallo-like condiment, and do not need melted cheese on a fish taco. Fish was good as was tortilla, and sauce. The taco got really soggy, could not eat the second taco, told the staff,... More

You always want to find a place where you have to go every time you visit and this is what we found! Came here based on other solid reviews and was able to walk here from the Maui Ocean Center parking lot. My wife and I split fish and chips and fish tacos. The fish tacos had a great taste... More

My wife never eats sauerkraut and I mean NEVER. But we shared a Ruben sandwich, and she enjoyed it very much. Price was around 10 bucks. We also had a Cobb Salad. Enough for 3 people, no joking. Price was 10 bucks. And sweet potato fries. We sat and enjoyed the afternoon and a great late lunch. Have a great... More

Heard about this place from some locals and they were right! The fish tacos are fantastic; made with all fresh ingredients and served with a spicy pico de gallo that was great. The tortilla chips were also fresh made. We got one order each and could have easily shared an order. We took the rest home for another great meal.

The menu is full of great hamburger, sandwich, and salad choices. The staff are friendly and the service is quick. The crispy fish tacos are highly recommended. The salads are average. The hamburgers look really good. We look forward to stopping again to try some of their other offerings.

Every trip to Maui is not complete unless we visit General Store. Tucked away in upcountry. Nestled into a beautiful surrounding its a terrific experience. Stopped for lunch driving from Napili for this particular visit. Service is always good and the food fresh and tasty. We look forward to our visits here always.
