As any musician will tell you, timing is everything, but it's also true for travellers. I had a preview of Fleetwood's from videos online of the opening ceremony and live music from Mick and Steven Tyler, so I was excited about my first time at this restaurant and first time in Maui.
I knew this place was popular, so I decided to try it for lunch off-peak hours (around 2 pm or so), as that gave me a look at the place, the service and the menu. I hit it just right, had a nice local beer and an ahi sandwich with salad that really hit the spot. The waiter was a pleasure to speak with as it was not too busy and I was full of questions. Had I been around for the night, I might have had a chance to shake hands with the man himself as he was due to appear that night, despite Fleetwood Mac being on tour in Europe.
I read a number of reviews for this establishment and saw if the timing was off, I could have been caught up in the rush and had a different experience. If a place looks jammed, I say ask how late they're serving or come back another time, though I know that doesn't work for everyone.
I was fortunate, I had a great time, but then I'm a drummer and there is no fonder sight that that magnificent set of DW drums up on the platform, other than the man himself playing them. And I'm Scottish too. I say give this place a try.
