When you arrive in Maui from the mainland, your hunger/thirst time clock will be a few hours off. Silence your growling stomach and quench your thirst at Leilani's Aloha Hour. After spending your first afternoon in Leilani's, you'll want to repeat. Their happy hour runs daily from 3-5pm, with (usually very good) live music Wed-Sun. The prices aren't bad (for... More

We visited Leilanis a number of times during our holiday as it was near to our hotel. We found the food in the dining area of the restaurant to be top quality on all occasions, between myself and my husband we tried different fish and steak options which were all perfectly cooked. My favourite has to be the crab cake... More

After shopping Macy's at the Hyatt, we headed to this eatery for a refuel and rehydrate. Adults had grownup lemonade and found it very tasty and just the right ETOH combo. Kids had tropical smoothies that were delicious. We sat out on the sidewalk beach area enjoying a cool breeze on a very warm day. I had fish and chips,... More

This is a great place to enjoy the ocean view and dine. The fish tacos are very good. My wife and I have dined here several times and it is always been consistently good.

I read the reviews prior to going and thought I'd plan a family dinner there of everyone that attended the wedding, which was about 15 of us. The service was pleasant and it really nice that the manager worked hard for us to be seated but that's where it all ended. The food was lackluster, and i love an array... More

Short review, my wife and I were hungry and hit it at the right time. Appetizers were around 5 dollars with discounted drinks. The appetizers were large tasty and easily formed a meal. A definite place to go to for and inexpensive but good meal. Oh - ordered a side of French Fries for $3-large portion-excellent.
