Best Dive bar in town!! Lives up to its name; nothing fancy, it's small, local & drinks are reasonable, especially for Maui. People are real and the best thing is that you might run into one of the 'Goose's regulars, a cool cat named Rusty!...More

It’s not fancy or big. Bar seats about 20 people, and that would be crowded...but it’s an awesome place. Bartenders are a little surly and it’s amazing. This is a beloved neighborhood dive bar that the locals in the area love, so if you’re a...More

It is a hole in the wall in an industrial area. I loved it, cheap drinks. Located behind Pizza Hut in an industrial area off Honoapi'ilani – Highway 30. Play songs on the jukebox, spoke with a friendly bartender and folks seating at the bar....More

This is a locals bar, with no food, but really good drinks, at a good price, great bartenders, and really nice patrons. I guess you would classify this as a "dive bar", but I enjoyed it. If you are looking for the Hawaii experience, not...More

First of all, this is a DIVE BAR... if you are coming here and expecting anything else, you will be very disappointed. That being said, it's a great little dive bar and has just what any small, great dive bar should have... a juke box,...More

I had last gone here in the 1980s so when a friend wanted a dive bar, this is where we went. We walked in and walked out. Back in the last millennium, they served food (which I wonder about now). Now they don't. While it...More

We stopped by here on the recommendation of fellow trip advisor reviewers. It was late afternoon so there weren't many people there. Bartender of 20 years served us good, strong, cheap drinks, which is rare in this area. She was a bit standoffish at first...More

This is one of those places I would rather not tell you about. I had to do some research just to find it. It is, dare I say, the last dive bar in Lahaina. There are some other places that claim to be dive bars....More
