Next to the old Courthouse and just off Front Street, we stopped in for dinner and discovered the prices were less that most of the sit-down restaurants we explored. I was looking for a steak, and most of them elsewhere were in the $45 range. The Pioneer was $26. And the steak was good! They have open-air seating and had... More

We had a guide teach us about the beginnings of Hawaiian culture and came here for lunch after. Fish tacos and some White Clam Chowder was amazing and wonderfully priced. Also had a Lava Flow and a Chi Chi for our drinks...DELICIOUS!!!

The crowd appeared to be mostly locals. Very friendly and a quaint atmosphere. The prices were inexpensive for Lahaina and Eddie the bar tender was great! Stop in if you're ever... More

We eat here every time we are in the area, and have never been disappointed. Good food at a fair price and friendly service. Ask to sit in Maria's area - a great waitress!

We've eaten great meals here. When we come to Maui a trip here wouldn't be right without a stop at the Pioneer Inn. I order the same meal every trip. Two eggs over easy on rice with Portuguese sausage. Thick medallions of sausage grilled to perfection. With the best rice, and eggs done to perfection. French toast? Monstrous slices of... More

It was the first restaurant we went into at Maui and it was horrible. We had lunch there and the waiter was rude and the food was plain. The waiter took it upon him self to add his own 18% tip to the bill.

The quality of food was not very good, ordered the loco moco with the hamburger medium rare and eggs over medium, the meat was burnt and the eggs were cooked over hard. Then small bugs were crawling all over the table

Had the most wonderful and reasonably priced breakfast during our stay. The eggs and bacon were cooked to perfection and the wheat bread was so good. Prices inexpensive but food good. Highly recommend.
