We had a great time here for happy hour, enjoying many of the drink and food options. The sushi comes in a good number and is pretty good considering. The drinks are nice and they don't skimp on the rum in your mai tai.

Our first dinner in Maui really set a high standard for the rest of our trip. We sat on the patio with a perfect view of the beach and watched the sun set while we enjoyed a beautiful meal. We even had a lizard keep us company during dinner. Highly recommend. If I ever get back to Maui it's on... More

Upside first. This was the best meal I have had on Maui (well, 2nd best - Spago is the best). We had the en papillote fish, the ahi tuna meal, and the ribs, with perfectly done vegetables and potatoes accompanying. All excellent. Now the downside. There was a wedding, and the hostess oddly sat us right next to the table... More

We stopped in for lunch for the first time and am I glad we did. I ordered the Five Palms Rueben with Steak Fries which was delicious. I also tried the Bikini Blonde local beer which was great. The views from the restaurant were outstanding. The restaurant was very clean and well maintained. Our server Rick was great. Great food... More

Come early, and still be prepared to wait a few for happy hour. Varied menu, good drinks, excellent device, great food, and a nice view of grounds and ocean.

Friends and I had appetizers and drinks several times during our stay. Sushi guys were friendly and amazing! Service from wait staff was good 3 out of 4 times. Food was really good and reasonable!! Will return!

We always make a point of reserving an early dinner at the 5 Palms, because the sunset view is memorable! The restaurant is very good, a bit overpriced, but the service is excellent and you cannot beat this view!

I have been here many times for breakfast and lunch and love the food and location. We made reservations for their Thanksgiving dinner after calling many other local favorites, as they promised that they could do a nut free and shellfish free dinner for my young daughter, who has life threatening shellfish and nut allergies. My wife called in advance... More

We have enjoyed Happy Hour at the 5 palms in past visits. This was our first visit this trip. We arrived right at 4 to find the bar seating was already full. We were told we are first in line. After waiting about 10 minutes we were seated in the main part of the restaurant. Seemed a little crazy given... More
