At Westin Ka'anapali. Mostly designed for people on the go. We ate both breakfast and dinner at this restaurant. Both meals were OK but nothing special. Morning hostess was mixed up and forgot about us. Evening service was very good. Food was ordinary and I can't even remember what I had for dinner.

We had dinner here twice during our 2 week stay. The food is good with a limited menu. As with most Hawaiian open air venues, watch out for the birds! Some of them can be quite bold... On our first night, the server left a lot to be desired, but when we tried it the second time, our server was... More

The Westin does crab night every Wednesday and if you are into crabs , there is no better opportunity on Maui. We love dinginess crab from the Pacific NW and sometimes you can have some here... Like we did. Otherwise it is snow crab. Not cheap. Call for current prices. Good drinks, salads, corn, and deserts. Not a bad deal..but... More

Just returned from a two week stay at Westin KOR villas and the first night we went to Ocean pool bar and grill. All we wanted was a burger or bar/grill food hence the name. What we got was Hawaiian food choices. I understand we are in Hawaii however have you ever gone to a bar and grill and your... More

Just ok. Good fresh food, not worth $25. We went because we got one buffet free. Better at two for $25.

Located on the Westin Kaanapoli Ocean Resort Villas property The Ocean Pool Bar and Grill is located on the South property. Ocean Pool Bar and Grill also provides the food when lounging by the pool. As for “pool food” and snacks, the Ocean Bar and Grill is good, and convenient. Unfortunately I would not recommend it for dinner. The food... More

Been here many times, since the Westin opened. The restaurant now caters to those who like Asian/Korean spices. I wanted an American breakfast (omelette, bacon, potatoes etc). The egg choices were with rice and Korean spices. I settled for pancakes with pineapple. Pancakes were not quite as good as IHOP, with pineapple that wasn't edible (perhaps ginger in them?). Very...

We love having "Crab Fest" each time we visit Maui! Staying here at the Kaanapali Ocean Resort Villas, so it is very convenient to simply walk to the Ocean Pool Bar and Grill. Make reservations when there are "special" nights. We saw people being turned away.
