“Great Location-Great View-Adverage Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

If you want a great bird's eye view of the old Lahaina area, this place delivers. It is located on the second floor and you can watch all the other tourists scurrying around. It is a "Sports Bar" so there are many TVS to watch your favorite sport. The bar drinks are a little less than other joints in the area and they have draft beer. The menu is typical American fare with a few "Island" dishes thrown in. We just had the ceviche which was fresh and good and a wedge salad which was also good. The Chicken sandwich, had by a girl at the bar, looked amazing. Don't expect haut cuisine here and you won't be disappointed. Our server did ask if I wanted another beer when I still had a 1/3 left and I just said no. I guess they want a good turn over of the tables but just hold your ground.

“Fast service, terrible food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

There are lots of better options for eating out in Lahaina. While the prices are average for Lahaina, the food is sub-par. My family ordered 5 different entrees and the food was uniformly poor quality. Drinks were island average, and the musical entertainment (guy with a guitar) was embarassingly bad....

“BEST PHILLY CHEESESTEAK!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

My husband said Captain Jack's served one of the best Philly Cheesesteaks he's ever had. Their wedge salad was also delicious, as were the ribs. First time I ever tried a "Skinny Margarita" and I am hooked. Tried one at Hard Rock and it wasn't even as good. The location was perfect as it allowed us to "people watch" up and down Front Street. Prices were very reasonable. We went there at least 3 times while in Lahaina (would probably have went more if we had discovered it early on during our vacation!).

“Best calamari ever.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

There is enough in their starter portion to make a meal along with 2-3 beers. Enjoy people watching on Front Street.

“Food wasn't great, but the service wasn't bad.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

This was our least favorite restaurant in Lahaina. The service was average, but the food was flavorless. My husband had a rotten tomato on his club sandwich, the lettuce was wilted, the cheese tasted old and the bread tasted stale. We would not recommend this restaurant at all.
