We went to Kimo's after surfing lessons on my daughter's birthday. We had reservations for 11am (opening time) but were a couple minutes late due to no parking in Lahaina! This, unfortunately, meant we did not get the coveted table along the rail...but did get 2nd row, which was still a great view. Our server was excellent, however the kitchen... More

We stopped by for lunch around 11 am. We were able to get a seat just one section away from the waterfront seats. We still had a great view of the water and the boats out there. The food was delicious!

We went for happy hour which I believe is between 3-5ish. Good half price drinks and food specials. We had the calamari, ahi poke, and the fresh ono special which was really good. The ono was prepared with a light basil sauce. Very tasty and very fresh. Nice view of the water, too. This was one of the few restaurants... More

Kimo's is always one of our must do's in Lahaina. The place has a great vibe and the views are out standing, right on the beach. Their fish dishes are all good and prepared in a variety of ways, but be careful, they have a tendency to over cook their fish. If you're in the mood for some beef, the... More

Okay I know it's a fish house, but seriously they had THE most delicious prime rib I've ever had in my life and I've had a lot. Also their hula pie is to die for. Their servers are so well versed in their foods and recommendations. It's a fun environment and the view is amazing.

We had the ahi fish tacos, grilled fish tacos and flat bread pizza for my son and all were excellent! Get the ginger lemonade from the cocktail menu. Super worth it. Would highly recommend this place. The pancakes also looked delish. Also, if you're in it for the views, this place sits on the water so you'll listen to the... More

We went for the sunset view but found the food was also very good. They prepare the daily caught fish in several suggested preparations or just simply grilled. It came with a side of rice and some cooked veggies as well. The service was excellent (we were there at 5:30) and they accommodated my wife's no dairy allergy no problem.... More

We had an early diner (5:30) with reservations, was much busier when we left. Service was excellent and Marlin recommend by waitress was wonderful and prepared perfectly (we prefer firm fish). Location is perfect, we had wine but specialty drinks look good. Would give this place high marks for Lahaina dining.

Wasn't too impressed with the quality of their food or service.. Waited an hour, and found their hyped food was mediocre..

Right on the water and in the heart of historic Lahaina, Kimo’s brings you and your o’hana (Hawaiian for family) a casual, completely Maui dining experience. Renowned our “postcard” views of Lanai and Molokai, we offer a menu featuring fresh Hawaiian fish, prime rib, prime steaks and the original Hula Pie, Kimo’s has been a Maui must-do for over 30 years. The upstairs main dining room shows the architectural influence of New England on the former whaling port, with koa-lined walls, missionary-style furnishings and maritime memorabilia. After dinner, Kimo’s lanai becomes a very cool hotspot for tropical cocktails and Hawaiian music. Live entertainment is offered on weekends and select week nights.
