Everything points to this restaurant being a tourist trap - on the water, in a mini mall, 50's themed.. but it simply is NOT a tourist trap at all. It's a good meal for a good price with nice service and a perfect location. I've been three times and they are consistently good and that's hard to say in Maui... More

The night started off fine but got worse in a hurry. We were seated and the waitress took our order. As we waited for our food we noticed a table of 6 that was seated after us got their food before us. So we waited a number of minutes longer until our food arrived. The server literally dumped the salad... More

Decent burgers and salads. Adult milkshakes are good (but expensive) with names like "The B-52" and "Ferrari". Certainly worth the visit. Our waiter was bit too obviously let down when we just wanted water with our lunch.

Cool Cat has the best burgers on Maui. They are fresh and come just as you order them. In the evenings for dinner, there is an artist that sings and plays the guitar. Love the atmosphere of this restaurant. Sit outside and people watch while soaking in the Hawaiian culture!

Upstairs open restaurant, friendly staff. Had a table with a great view of Dickinson Street. Had the Hula Ham with pineapple. Good!

Stumbled on Cool Cat our first night in Lahaina. Great burgers, and I took a risk and got the fish special. The mahi was perfection, and the mango salsa was a nice touch. Probably some of the best fish I got on Maui!

This restaurant with 1950s memorabilia has great burgers and other items at reasonable prices. Live music many nights of the week make this a great spot to have a beer and wind down after dark.

This is an informal, relaxed place. It is on the noisy side. It has a diner-like menu with some much ballyhooed burgers. We had one of them which was pretty good. The Blue Hawaii salad was fine. It is a place where you can get a decent inexpensive meal but don't expect too much.

We recently returned from Maui and while there someone told us about Cool Cat Cafe. So we decided to try it one night. Wow, those were some of the biggest and tastiest burgers we have ever had. Bring your appetite cause you will need it. The burger comes alone so you will have to purchase your fries or onion rings... More
