This is a 60 seat restaurant that does Lunch, takeout and early dinner. Lunch is main business as it is in the heart of the judicial, financial and medical center of Maui County. The first Friday of every month they provide live music until about 10 pm. Great value with food from the soul. Drinks are strong and try some of the special martinis, Lilikoi Lip Balm, BBQ martini are newest. Menu changes based on product so look often. Unfortunately web site can't stay abreast of changes, so call for updates. Private functions and outside caterings are discussed and encouraged. Great for medical programs and rehearsal dinners.

Tasty food and cocktails!

Nice place and a good value! Very casual and clean. Love Wailuku town for it's charm and local feel. If you are in the area and want a nice meal (and maybe a cocktail or beer)...check it out!

My wife and I stopped here for a late lunch and very satisfied we stopped. I had a 1/2 sandwich, cup of soup special. Generous portion. The tomato bisque soup was superb. Ver friendly staff. Chef came out and talked with us, you would think you were in a cafe in friendly northern Minnesota. Enjoy!

Also shared a part of a half order of onion rings, unlike any other onion rings, they were light and fluffy and not drenched with breading. Excellent staff, chef out and talked with us.

Main Street Bistro Chef used to work at one the big resorts and decided to open up place. As the reputation grew, the Bistros hours shrunk. My favorite is anything with his in-house roasted turkey while my wife always wants to go on Thursdays for the beef brisket special. Everything is made by Tom to his impeccable standards. So, after... More

Had a quick business lunch. Steaming fresh island fish with crispy fried artichoke leaves drizzled with truffle oil. Molokai purple sweet potatoes? Of course!! O.K., so there is no whale-watching here. This bistro rocks a great Maui experience. Eat here, then go find a zipline. Or snap a selfie to send to all your miserable buds back in Boston. WE... More

A hop, skip and jump away from Maui's State Building, we discovered this unassuming little cozy restaurant in the heart of Wailuku-Town. The grilled maui mahi sandwich was fresh, tender and served on a lovely french roll with lettuce, tomato drizzled with a home made cream sauce. Delish! Plated with home made cole slaw and dill pickle, perfect! I observed... More
