We were at Kaanapali beach for the day and we decided to stay for an early dinner and see the sunset. The food is nothing special. Not alot of GF options. We started with nachos and it was on the small size. If you can get a seat outdoors, have a drink and enjoy the view!

What a beautiful setting for a great restaurant! But you know what? The food was just as good as the ambiance! We had a great time and enjoyed ourselves. A must do again!

We remembered Leilani's from our last visit eight years ago. The ambiance was the same, but particularly the service left is with a not so great feeling at the me of our evening. Our server was pleasant and maybe he just had too many tables, but we waited for everything way too long. We waited 15 minutes after being sat... More

Perfect spot for lunch after the beach. Bar is large and you can usually get a table that has amazing ocean views and great people watching. Fish tacos are the best and also delicious upcountry salad

Ate beachside. It was crowded and busy and loud but a nice atmosphere. Great place to eat and people watch.

Stopped in for a late lunch and wasn't blown away . . . the food was average. I had a veggie burger, my daughter had a cheeseburger, another daughter had fish tacos and my husband had a salad. The setting is great, at the edge of Whalers Village. We did like being on the beach front and the outdoor patio... More

Upon past experience and a family recommendation, we made this reservation on our Anniversary trip to Maui. We were not disappointed. We were promptly seated once we arrived. Our server was very friendly and helpful. We chose the chefs special. It came prepared exactly as it was described. Our drinks were great! We topped if off with Hula Pie which... More

Stopped at Whalers Village to see how the modernization was coming along and intended to have lunch at Hula Grill. Having eaten many times, and enjoyed many times, the Hula Grill, we decided to try Leilani's On The Beach instead and enjoyed it very much. The drinks were cold and the food was certainly worth stopping for. Quite often, I... More

This is one of the most popular restaurant in Whalers village. The wait can be quite long without a reservation. We made a reservation for dinner the same day, and we were seated very quickly. We always have the fish dishes. We enjoyed a nice bottle of wine, salad, Lobster, and the catch of the day. The server did a... More
