Fantastic Burgers and other sandwiches. Superb value for local fresh caught fish as well. Service is decent and the open-air atmosphere carries significance ambiance. Nightly has great music, Will is the real deal. He is a superb guitarist and very capable vocalist as well - very entertaining.

If you want a really amazing burger this is your spot, everyone in our group agreed. We all had different burgers and all were awesome. The food came out quick and hot! You can get a basket of fries or onion rings for the table, which I would recommend since they charge extra for fries anyway so a basket for... More

This is a kind of 50's Eatery, with a menu reflecting that period (by titles!), and lots of burgers served in baskets and wrapped in paper. Very charming, and the food was very good. There was a an extensive drink list and specials featuring both exotic drinks and beers. Pricing was moderate, and service was very good. We ate an... More

My wife and I were there on Monday night. It was busy but not too crazy. My wife had the luna burger and it was delicious. I had the steak and fish of the day (tuna), and again it was delicious. Everything was cooked and seared to perfection. To top it all off the mango margaritas were on Monday night... More

"Gravy To It" Sounded great with Fries, mushrooms, bacon and cheese curds on a fresh beef pattie covered in gravy. The fries were stone cold along with the gravy which means the cheese curds did not melt. As a result the flavour was one note. An addition of a good tomatoes relish would have made the burger memorable. Any restaurant... More

While I have never been here in person, my friends who were vacationing with me went 3 times for lunch during their 11-day visit in early February. I think that says alot--repeat visits when there are so many choices in the Lahaina area. They always reported enjoying their lunch, a good sign of satisfaction! (We didn't do all our adventuring...

The selection of burgers is amazing and they are cooked well. They have a good selection of beers on tap, but if you're looking for something non-alcoholic the root beer floats are fabulous. The only reason why I didn't give them 5 stars is because there is always such a long wait and they don't take reservations.

This was a must go to burger place on our trip to Maui and based on the reviews and recommendations it did not disappoint! Great beer selection, loved sitting up looking over the Banyan Tree and Front St. and the burgers were great! I also loved that despite the amount of vacationers there there were a lot of locals eating... More

Very large burgers....Rating mediocre for taste. Onion rings were very good and so was the free root beer float. We had been on the Atlantis Submarine and they gave us a coupon for a free float so that's why we visited Cool Cat's. It's upstairs in the Whaler's shops so tricky to find unless you happen to notice their display... More
