“Unusual restaurant in Lahaina”

When in Lahaina recently we had some very different Hawaiian food with an unusual Hawaiian atmosphere.with waterfalls in the background and fish in the ponds..Friendly staff and fair prices.

“Wonderful New Restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

A great new place in downtown Lahaina. Stopped by to check it out off a recommendation from a friend, and I was pleasantly surprised. The outside bar/restaurant was perfect! The wait staff was friendly, helpful, and very attentive. The food I had was excellent! The coconut shrimp were some of the best I have ever had. My friends decided on the fish tacos since they were from Socal...and they needed to make sure this place was legit. They all said they were some of the best they have ever had! Cold beers, great staff, and wonderful atmosphere....I would definitely recommend this place if your visiting downtown Lahaina!

“Happy hour all day.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Stopped in with the family for pupus and drinks. We were greeted by Jamie who was very nice. She brought our drinks and food. They are new so they are trying out new items, which brings me to the owners dad who brought us complimentary beef sticks. They were a hit around table and should be added. We had coconut shrimp, which were very good. We also had the chips and salsa, chips were good the salsa was a no go. too much onion and bland. The coconut shrimp had a great sauce so i used it. So if you are going to start a lahaina walk, stop in the wharf cinema center and relax.

“New restaurant in Lahaina, Maui!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

A very welcoming, traditional hawaiian type grill just opened up at the Wharf Center in Lahaina. The owners are very welcoming and great most that come in. The decor of the restaurant gives you a very hawaiian feel - along with the local catches of the day, and the local beers!
