Average Hawaiian style dishes. The service was friendly but the food itself was nothing special - the coconut shrimp were a little overcooked and oily (I ate better ones this evening at Coconut Fish in Kihei). But a good choice for a first night late arrival where all you want to do is eat and then head to bed!

Had dinner here two nights during our stay, and it was excellent. Management and staff are eager to please. Friday night seafood and prime rib buffet is really a treat. Cocktails and tropical drinks at the bar are well chilled. Wait staff and bartenders have been here for years, and know what they are doing. Gorgeous and breath taking ocean... More

BY FAR - This is absolutely one of the absolute BEST SUNDAY BRUNCH spots I've ever visited. Everything was fresh and exotic - not the same old 'norm' you expect from a buffet arrangement. The foods were chef inspired and delicioso!!! Would absolutely recommend EVERYONE try this amazing seaside restaurant!!!

After our meal here, my husband was disappointed to learn that this was the only place that served dinner at the Makena Resort. The shrimp and penne dish I had was just okay and not worth the $26.00 price. While my husband enjoyed the ribs appetizer, it was just okay and nothing special. Service was also spotty. Disappointed enough that... More

15% discount coupon and oysters on the half shell were the reason we chose to eat there.Everything on the buffet was really good and the desserts were just wonderful!Not so happy about being seated far from the buffet but walking burned off a couple of calories.

Very energetic pool waitstaff that cruised through often and served us right at our pool loungers. They really seemed to enjoy their jobs!
