Description: Located above the Wailea Tennis Center, Joes has panoramic ocean views on one side and vistas of Haleakala on the other. Internationally acclaimed Chef Bev Gannon masterminds the menu, while husband Joe Gannon is credited with the theatrical lighting and inspiration of this popular dining spot. Wonderful comfort food, with a gourmet streak such as slow roasted prime rib, with mashed potatoes, our BBQ ribs, and Joes favorite meatloaf. Fresh local fish is also offered nightly including appetizers such as the ahi carpaccio and calamari. Don't forget about the "World famous crab dip"! The Seafood Pot Pie with fresh fish, shrimp and scallops is another favorite. Children are welcome, offering a fun kids menu and special drinks like the green gecko. One of Wailea's best Mai Tai's, crazy martinis, and and exceptional wine list from well known producers as well as smaller boutique wineries.

We are spending two weeks in Maui and we've already been here twice. Great place, great waitstaff and, best of all, really good food. On the1st visit my husband had the braised short ribs which he declared were superb. I had the Kobe burger -- also excellent, and our English friend had the "signature" meatloaf. He had never had meatloaf... More

We spent 10 days on Maui and there was nothing else even close. We actually went twice. The food was EXCELLENT and the sunsets may have been better. Talk to Joe if you can...he was in the rock and roll biz and has some great stories.

we had no idea what to expect, but being ' bar & grill' we didn't habe any expectations. Service was excellent, food was perfectly fine (not amazing but good) cocktails & wine were very good and it really was all in all a great dinner. We had the calamari which was great and my husband loved the ribs. I had... More

We've had dinner at Joe's 4 - 5 times and Gannons "General Store" once. Each time somehow hoping an improvement over the last, unfortunately, each subsequent visit only confirmed our prior experiences, and we will not go back. I'm not sure where to start but will say this, if you understand what good food is, you will not enjoy your... More

Great place that beat alot of higher rated places. Service and food were perfect both times. This place should be on your list of places to eat or watch a sunset in Maui.

We had another great meal at Joe's with visiting family. Service is great. Get a table by the window. Parking a bit away - so they send a cart to pick you up! Highly recommended!

This is a lovely location. Staff was very good. Food is good but certainly not outstanding. That being said, I would return as it is high above the Pacific and a lovely place to end the day.

Joe's is a great place for good food. We frequent Joe's each visit to Maui (a few times each year). The food has been consistently good and the service is excellent!

Joe's is an attractive and interesting designed space within the tennis club although I don't think they are associated. Like everything in Maui, it is overpriced for what you get, but at least the food and drinks here were decent. I had the pot pie which I thought was really good. My companion did NOT like the meatloaf however and... More
