You will not find a place with fresher food at a cheaper price. Everything here is fresh and portions are generous. Do not pass up the poke bowl. It's the best on the island. Fried fish just melts in your mouth. This is my go-to lunch place every time I visit Maui. Food is made to order and never had... More

Love to eat here whenever we are on Maui. The fresh fish a delicious and cooked very well, moist and delist. If you like your fish raw, their poke bowl is amazing, four types of poke on rice with a little wasabi and a side of ocean salad, it is big and very reasonable. The food quality is as good... More

Place is amazing. Huge Poke Bowls with 4 different fish types...ended up sharing there was so much and only $14. One of best meals we had all week and came back for the seafood chowder the next day. Also great, but the Poke is out of this world. Must go and reasonable price for what everything costs in Maui.

We had heard that this place was known for their poke bowls and we were not disappointed. We went back for a second time and had the seafood chowder which was also excellent. Highly recommend Eskimo Candy. Also, close to the Maui brewing company and can be a great place for lunch.

We wanted to grill out our own Seafood. Amazingly it is difficult to find fresh fish to grill on your own. We found it all the fish weather grocery stores or trucks are very expensive in Maui. I think the ticket is to find some charter boats coming in and buy it off of that. This however was good but... More

My husband's family lives on Maui and they brought us here. So good. Best fish and chips I've ever had. Not a lot of seating inside.

We stopped by and ordered our meals and were not disappointed. Try whatever fresh fish they have on special that day. Then drive to a beach and enjoy your picnic.
