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.

“Hula Pie... yummy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2008

Honestly I'll remember this restaurant simply for one thing... their Hula Pie but be warned it's quite a hefty slice so save your stomach!!

“Must eat here if on Maui”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2008

We went to Kimo's following the recommendation of one of the bar men at our hotel...he said best place to eat in Lahaina...we can say our best dining experience in Hawaii. Great service with very attentitive staff, fantastic setting (def go there for sunset) and the food was excellent. We had the Polynesian Chicken and Pork ribs combo as well as the Mahi Mahi in Parmesan crust. Both dishes were excellent. Not too much, but not too little...just right. $70 for two great dishes with drinks...well worth a visit! Unfortunately we found this on our last day, otherwise we would certainly have eaten their again.

“Excellent Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2008

We went there with a group of 20 or so of us and they were very accomodating. The food was amazing, the drinks were excellent, and the service was so wonderful it made you feel like we were the only ones there. In fact, it was super busy and there was tons of activity all around us, but the sunset from there was so AMAZING we didn't even see everyone else. If you are only going to dine at one restaurant on Front Street, this should be the one!

“Excellent spot for lunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2008

We didn't have reservations but were seated right along the rail for lunch. Lunch was divine! I had the Wo Hing Salad with chicken and my hubby had the fish special of the day and we split a hula pie for dessert. Service was top notch. We will definitely return!

“A Maui Must Dine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2008

Reservation for table waterfront was made and perfectly honored by staff. The view of the sunset was second to none. There were four in our party . . . all the entree's that were ordered were cooked to perfection and the taste . . . fantastic! The service was amazing and the prices very affordable.

We will make Kimo's reservations every visit.
