So several hundred reviews and 4 1/2 stars on Yelp for fresh fish?! I can say I would give the Ono fish and chips 5 stars but if you are looking to buy some local caught fish it was very disappointing. I went two days in a row and then went to Costco! I was shocked at how limited the... More

I drove over to this side of the island for fish and chips, as the place seems to get rave reviews for that. I was put off by the fact that 4 of the 6 types of fish offered were frozen, but when I ordered the "captain's platter" I was disappointed by the heavy, hard batter shell encrusting everything. The... More

We have discovered Poke this trip. Eskimo Candy has 4 different types of Poke and serve all 4 types in a bowl with rice and seaweed salad. It got rave reviews from my family. I had the blue crab cakes and they were delicious as well. Moderately priced and very good food. Order to go as there is not a... More

The pictures posted by others are exactly what I go in the poke bowl. Everything from the fish to the seaweed to the rice was so fresh and blended together perfectly. My wife got the coconut shrimp and loved it. Also said the cocktail sauce may be the best she has ever eaten. We will be back!

One of our favorite meals while on Mauii. We had the shrimp and fries. SOOOO good! Small casual restaurant (3 tables). My son-in-law had the spicey ahi puke salad. I had a taste and it was very good.

Stopped for a late lunch and for some fresh seafood for dinner. Place was super busy. We ordered the seafood pasta, the poke bowl, the crab cake salad and the calamari. Everything was delicious. The pasta had at least half a dozen clams and whole scallops each with lots of fish and shrimp as well. The sauce wasn't too creamy.... More

We picked up food and enjoyed it in our condo. The Captain's Platter was very good as were the fresh fish and chips (maybe a little too heavy on batter but good). Crab cakes were good but you might ask to get the sauce on the side. They came in the sauce and it was too much for my wife's... More

Stopped for fish and chips. Huge potions $16.00 with soda. I also bought lobster tails in their case for dinner one night. Their menu is incredible. Chicken, Kobe burgers. It's off the beaten path but not by much. Only a few tables. A local recommended it!

Good food and busy but it was pretty expensive for what you got. They sell out of fish early so we were out of luck on some things we wanted

Best crab cake meal I have ever had! It came with an amazing salad and perfect sauces. The place is tiny for eat-in, but don't let that discourage you from getting food here. Take it away for the perfect romantic meal!
