As we are traveling with our toddler, we had a 5:30 reservation and we are so glad we came early. First, because we were there early, we were able to get a seat by the edge and watch the entire sunset. It was amazing. Secondly, the serve a Chefs tasting menu that is amazing and you can't beat the price.... More

Good place to enjoy some music, have dinner and drinks beachside and watch the sunset!! Depending on the time of day the wait can be long. Don't look for a table or seat at the bar when the sunset excursions get back in (around 6:30) the wait time is over an hour.

On a search for the best mai tai? Be sure to try the 1944 mai tai. Not as sugary sweet as you will find at many places. And the lime in the coconut drink is another favorite of ours: refreshing and light. The food served upstairs is always fabulous. This is one of our favorite Maui places to eat .

Try the Hula pie for sure. One serving is good for 4 people. Nice seafood selection. Good service. Go for the views though.

My husband and I would go snorkeling mid morning for an hour our so, then head to Leilani's for lunch. The fish taco's are our favorite. Today we had the fish and chips, and that was great too. Friendly service, good bar, and great view.

I love Lelani's! The atmosphere is great right along the boardwalk! We spend a lot of time people watching from outdoor seating area. The people are so nice there and the place is popular due to the food, service, cocktails and people watching! They also have music Wed-Sun from 5pm, so we try to get a table to listen and... More

Drinks were flowing, great clientele! Service was great even though they were packed. Only drawback was not getting to eat, too long of a wait for a table.

We went here because we saw prime rib on the menu and that is our favourite meal. the service was exceptional and the atmosphere with a beach view of sunset was perfect. The prime rib was delicious and you could cut it with a fork.
