We had a reservation on July 14th for a party of 8. We were celebrating my birthday and my daughter's wedding the previous night. I thought that knowing we were celebrating special events would ensure us an excellent table and a fabulous dining experience. Unfortunately that was not the case. Our reservation was for 7:30 but most of our party... More

A little overrated but still good food. Definitely not worth the price tag. Check out Ma'la Ocean Tavern for a better experience and better views

We had an absolutely amazing meal here during our honeymoon to Maui in June! The macademia crusted mahi mahi was one of the best things we ate on a trip filled with amazing food!! Our only regret is that we came to the restaurant when it was already dark and missed the incredible view at sunset. This is a must... More

We made the special dinner plans bringing 4 kids back to the place we had the honeymoon 25 years ago. A special experience, great staff and wonderful food. A little pricey but worth it for the special occasion.

Our family's favorite location for happy hour of all time, by far, has been at Merriman's along the ocean pointe at Kapalua Bay. The ambience of the outside patio is captivating with the firepits blazing, tiki torches lit, palm trees blowing in the breeze, and couches and tables inviting you to sit and take in the view. Our family sat... More

We have been going to Merriman’s Restaurant at Kapalua three or four times a year for the past five years. This week’s visit was by far the worse. My wife chose the seafood plate which was a very dry piece of fish served with two overcooked shrimp – poor value at $47. I had the steak which was very good... More

Last year we stumbled across Merriman's at Poipu in Kauai for lunch. One of the traditions that my wife and I have every time we got to a new place to eat or drink on our trips to Hawaii is to sample the mai tai's. After many attempts, we hit the mother lode when we went to Merman's for the... More

This is the place we save for the last night on Maui. We absolute love this restaurant. We started with cocktails- I had the Na Ka Oi which was excellent!!! My husband enjoyed his Original Mai Tai. Appetizer of ahi poke was perfect. I had filet and lobster - absolutely perfect. My husband had the lamb. We shared a bottle... More

This reservation was made for us by a friend and what a treat. Unfortunately we were not able to catch the sunset as it was a cloudy evening but the view was still spectacular from our table. The service was friendly and helpful but not over the top. We tried the ceviche, grilled calamari and the tuna and each dish... More

Fantastic dining experience- hip bar with tasty cocktails-- or seated on their lenai overlooking Kapalua Bay with delicious food well paired with good wine and great service. With the price-- get a babysitter and enjoy a romantic evening.
