I asked some locals and they recommended Kimo's to someone who wanted something different than seafood. The prime rib was cooked to perfection and was juicy and tender. The teriyaki sirloin was generous and prepared just as ordered. Great ocean views and awesome sunset.

The seafood is great, and the prices are reasonable, for Lahaina. The upstairs seating gives a great view of the sunset, if you are there for dinner. Definitely get the hula pie!

Amy was our server and took excellent care of us, as did every one of the other servers in our section. Every time one of them walked down the aisle, their eyes were checking every table to make sure that patrons had what they needed. My husband and I just had appetizers and salads, and it was really good! The... More

You would think that this would be a wonderful restaurant. It is always busy and it is right on the water. Only the closest tables have a view and often it is uncomfortable due to the western exposure. Service is extremely slow and inattentive and the food is barely edible. Was the fish really fresh? We will not be going... More

We stopped by for a late dinner. Frankly I did not have especially high expectations but it was convenient. Well was I surprised. The view and setting were great and romantic. We shared the calamari crusted with macademia nuts. Wow is all I can say. Not you typical rubber band fare but thick cut strips fried to perfection. Tender and... More

we've been coming here for well over 20 years and the food and service just don't disappoint. Always excellent, and such a great oceanfront location with great sunset or ocean/island views anytime of day. be sure to save room for HULA PIE! If you don't know what it is, find out....you'll be back every year for more! LOVE Kimo's!! :)

Kimo's is right on the water at Lahaina, Maui. Beautiful view and very nice food. I loved the mahimahi and chips for lunch. Service was very good so no complaints from me.

Thank terrytooth

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.
