“Good service and even better food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

We found Eskimo Candy on Urban Spoon and decided to try it out. It was very busy but we only waited ten minutes and the food was well worth it! The crab cakes are delicious!

“Great food and friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Eskimo Candy was recommended to us by a local in Kihei. The food was amazing. I had the lobster pasta(the special for the day) and it was wonderful. It was loade with lobster,shrimp and clam in pasta with butter and garlic sauce. My husband had fish and chips and he thought it was the best he had. The restaurant itself is very small and with few tables but good atmosphere. Service was good and friendly. We will definitely return if we make it back to Maui.

“Best Seafood Chowder”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Eskimo Candy holds the place for best seafood chower in my opinion! It was so incredibly good. Me and my girlfriend both got the Fish and Chips (Fresh Ono, grilled) and shared a bowl of seafood chowder. Very very good. My girlfriend said they were the best Fish and Chips she's had. The fries were really good and the tartar sauce was a great compliment to the fish and chips.

“yum-yum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Love this little out-of-the-way place. Their seafood chowder is out of this world and there cannot be any better fish and chips or coconut shrimp. Off the beaten path and well worth finding.

“Wonderful little place, do go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Eskimo Candy has a very informal atmosphere and a small amount of seating. The food is very fresh, they have some just-caught local fish, and you get quite a lot for your money's worth. The cole slaw is excellent, the fries are delicious and we found that as soon as we left the place we were talking about how we would like to go back soon. Big Bonus: If you are staying somewhere that has an outdoor grill, you can go to Eskimo Candy and get fresh fish to take home and grill yourself. They do also have meat items like french dip sandwich. HIghly suggest checking them out if you are in the Kihei area.
