“Atmosphere is a 10. Food is a 3.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

This is such a fabulous location that it's a shame the food is so mediocre. As timeshare owners here, we expect better from Marriott. The salad was iceberg lettuce with tasteless tomatoes. The ono was tough and dry (even though we requested that it not be over-cooked when we ordered). Overall, very disappointing, especially for the prices. FYI - We are in the "over 50" age group.

“Great service, very good food ..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Beautiful, open air restaurant on the beach walk at the Marriott . We had their Sunday night prime rib special which was good. Their " banana apple tart "' was just amazing.
Service was outstanding and the tables are situated so almost every one has a view of the glorious Maui sunset.

“A pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

We've been to this Marriott property maybe 15-20 times over the years and this restaurant location has operated under many different names/managers. Longboards has been there longer than anybody. We usually get there for an average meal once during our stay when we don't feel like venturing out. This visit was different. We had ahi and mahi-mahi and the service was awesome as were the preparations of the fish. Very generous portions! In fact, this visit was much better than our experience next door at Sonz', but you can read about that somewhere else if you so desire.

“Great food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

The food and service was amazing. It was hard to choose because everything looked so delicious. I had the fish tacos which were so full of Mahi Mahi that I couldn't finish all of it. Yum!!

“60th Birthday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

My wife surprised me with an ocean front table at Longboards. The food and the service were outstanding. The view at sunset was perfect. We had a private table setup at the edge of the beach, and a private server.

A special thank you to the manager "Oscar", for going out of his way for us.
