Great place to stop on your way to or from Lahaina area and Kahului. Convenient to the airport. Really good food, friendly service and very reasonable. You can eat inside or outside. Do not need to play golf to enjoy a meal there. Can have a wait to get a table, so call ahead.

My wife and I love to stop here for lunch. They get busy quick plus they have a lunch plate special for around $8 but supplies are limited. Today they were out by noon. The view is great of the West Maui mountains and the golf course adds a great touch. We seat outside looking at the mountains. The service... More

We ate here before leaving Maui. It's very close to the airport at a golf course. A lot of Local People go there, so that tells you something. The local food was really great, I would suggest their specials while they last. If you are hungry before you leave or when you arrive. This is the restaurant to hit!

The only place on the island that has comparable mainland prices. NOT a tourist place! The place is full of local people. Over the years that is the only place we went to. Forget the one in Kihei - that's for tourists. The view at the Dunes is great and you will also get to see some Nene geese that... More

Really nice food and great mango lemonade. We were very pleased with the service and we had a chance to see a golf tournament which was fun.

We had no problems making a "quick" reservation for 6 (somebody was "starving"), found a nice variety of dishes (had roasted eggplant, seared ahi, blackened ahi, macadamia nut chicken [a proper, thin coating], short ribs) all well prepared. Only down side is that it can be quite noisy (maybe because it's fairly wide-open with not much to contain/dampen noise?), but... More

The staff are all ways friendly. And the food is all ways very good and filling. You have a great day choice of sitting in side or outside. Both areas are good.
