Description: Right on the water and in the heart of historic Lahaina, Kimo’s brings you and your o’hana (Hawaiian for family) a casual, completely Maui dining experience. Renowned our “postcard” views of Lanai and Molokai, we offer a menu featuring fresh Hawaiian fish, prime rib, prime steaks and the original Hula Pie, Kimo’s has been a Maui must-do for over 30 years. The upstairs main dining room shows the architectural influence of New England on the former whaling port, with koa-lined walls, missionary-style furnishings and maritime memorabilia. After dinner, Kimo’s lanai becomes a very cool hotspot for tropical cocktails and Hawaiian music. Live entertainment is offered on weekends and select week nights.

Food was really good and staff was very nice and attentive. Had dinner with the family. Was not fine dining, but it is a very good seaside restaurant with great view.

“BEST LOBSTER”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

We love this place. Great atmosphere. Make reservations - always busy - especially for dinner. I love the Tristan lobster tails. One of my favorite meals ever. Steaks are good too. If you want to try a fun tropical drink - try the Tropical Itch.

“Overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

Kino's on Front street has a great location. The view and ocean breeze is wonderful. My wife and I had lunch at Kimo's. Our bill was over $50 for 2 burgers, 2 beers, and one non alcoholic drink. I think that is a little much.

Food was average and service was good.

“Always Return”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

We go to Maui every other year and Kimo's is on our short list of "must eat". This year we had a good sample of steak, chicken and fish and every dish was excellent. Service is always stellar. We always have a Hula Pie for dessert so we try to share entrees. We do try new restaurants but Kimo's is one of the few we always return to.

“Great service, great food, lovely setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

My college-age kids and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at this water's edge casual restaurant (but with fabulous food) in Lahaina. We had a short wait in the bar (i.e., on the deck watching the sunset), and a beautiful view from our table. Each of us ordered a different entrée, and all were excellent, including the vegetables and rice that came with. Our server was helpful, friendly, and added to the enjoyment of our meal.
