Our family of four enjoyed dinner at this restaurant. We made a reservation ahead using opentable and were provided a table right on the water. We were there at 6 pm and were just in time to see the beautiful sunset over the ocean. The restaurant was suprisingly kid friendly. There was an excellent kieke menu and the food was... More

From looking at the reviews it sure seems like this place has spotty service but our experience was actually quite good. When we arrived the hostess looked a little haggard after being "dressed down" by a customer who "couldn't believe" they would have to wait about 10 min for a table. We were seated at a great table in 15... More

Starting with the positives - the location is spectacular. Lovely view out to ocean and you can even see whales while eating your meal. Unfortunately the food was average (at best) and the service very slow. We waited over half an hour for our breakfast orders to come out and when they did, it WASN'T worth the wait! Our son... More

I think this was the worst server I have ever had. We were four for dinner. The service started out OK with a pretty prompt drink order. We ordered a bottle of wine and waited, and waited. After about 20 minutes our server appeared to tell me the wine that I had selected was not available. I re-selected and off... More

We've been to Kihei a few times and finally managed to hit both happy hour and dinner at 5 Palms. In both cases the food and staff were great - but the experience is very different. Happy Hour: Go early as it can get really packed. There is a hostess stand over by the pool/bathrooms where you wait for happy... More

We visited 5 palms beach bar after landing in maui and having am amazing experience at mama's fish house. We walked down the beach for the end of happy hour and were 'not' greeted by a complete air head of a hostess. She could not make conversation and instead twirled her hair behind her head and refused to make eye... More

We had lots of great dining experiences in Maui but our favourite spot for happy hour was definitely 5Palms. The Mai Tais were excellent as were the lettuce wraps, and the ribs all for a reasonable (by Maui standards) price. Super casual and right on the beach... the cherry on top is if you can sit in Andrea's section -... More
