Now serving Breakfast, Lunch, Happy Hour, Dinner, & Late Night! Featuring locally sourced Fresh Fish, we pride ourselves on our Fish n' Chips, Mahi Mahi Tacos, and Ahi dishes. We add our flair of Southern Aloha with our Chicken & Waffles and Shrimp Po'Boy, yet have a variety of Hawaiian Island favorites like our Local Style Plates, Lobster & Crab Grilled Cheese, Calamari and more! Down the Hatch was established in 2015 by three childhood friends from Georgia. After years of living in Maui, and working in the service industry, Javier, Dave, & Julian decided to open a restaurant/bar catering to the community and guests of this beautiful island with their own unique style of Southern Aloha!
