We popped in for happy hour one afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed the band! They played fabulous bar/sing along sings and everyone had a fabulous time. We sat with a view of the beach, the sun was shining, food was very good ... perfect!

What can I say other than these guys are a class act. Their food is good but what makes it special is location and people. JD and crew on Fri-Sat at 3-5 are off the chart for live music with Tia, Aaron, Sally, Nancy all world class servers charming your socks off.

Good food. Excellent service. Steve was our waiter and gave us the smiles. I'd come back just to get that service.

Good food but pricey but to be expected because of location. They have good and very bad seating. If you get taken to a table inside the restaurant tell them you will wait for a table outside. It will be worth the wait

Love this spot for the views of he ocean especially when the whales are migrating. Drinks and food are decent but really you go for the view.

This place is really average. Only one of 4 meals at our table was enjoyed. Perhaps perimeter tables are better but the inside was totally lacking in atmosphere.

This restaurant is located in Whalers village. If you park in the parking lot and get your ticket validated by Leilani's you park for free. It is a beautiful location by the waterfront. The fish tacos were excellent and have won an award on Maui. They have a bit of a kick to them if you don't like spicy. It's... More

Beautiful location. We've dined here before, but this time the service was not good. Our server spent 90% of his time on 1-customer who couldn't have garlic, couldn't have this, that or the other, or salt...the server read every single ingredient to her for several different meals & types of sauce. All the while ignoring all his other tables. RIDICULOUS!... More
