“Go during happy hour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

They have great deals if you can make it in for happy hour. $6 pizza, discounted app's, beers and cocktail specials. Its worth every penny, and you'll even spot locals at the bar which is a sign of a good place to check out.

“Great food, fun atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

We ate here twice on our vacation. It is family friendly and was able to accommodate our large parties of 10+! Great variety of food. Some dishes are pricey, but majority are are priced right! Great food!

“Fun lively restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

My husband absolutely loved the Mahi Mahi sandwich - "scary good". The atmosphere is fun and lively and the bar was rocking the whole night. Monkeypod was recommended by our vet in NJ.

“This is the place in South Maui”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

This restaurant was recommended to us at our hotel and it proves to be outstanding! Its location in a corner mall away from the water and next to an intersection is irrelevant once you taste basically anything on the menu. Incredible selection of beers on tap, including some rarities from Belgium AND Quebec, but Hawaiian brews are predominant. Wine list is impressive too. Local ingredients and amazing recipes will make this unassuming restaurant your favourite. The patio has an amazing sunset view and the place is busy all day. By far our favourite restaurant in South Maui

“Great place in Wailea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

Just came back from one week in the Wailea area of Maui. We loved, loved, loved this restaurant. In this area there are a lot of very overpriced restaurants. Nothing in Maui is cheap, so even here, the prices are not low, but the food and drinks are excellent. We actually came here three times, twice for lunch and once for happy hour where they have reduced prices on appetizers and drinks. My sister in law loved their mai tai and said it was the best she had anywhere. I had a lobster pizza one time, and their burger one time. Everything is fresh from the island and the atmosphere is very cool. Can't recommend enough!
