Relaxing scenery and outdoor environment, bar was great and servers were super friendly. The shrimp is amazing. Highly recommend this place for a casual dining/drinking spot in the center of town.

Fun way to spend a Sunday Night on vacation. Good drinks with affordable island prices. Will definitely be back next time we are on the island.

We visited DTH for Saturday brunch with our kids, ages 11 and 9. They have something for EVERYONE! From the more health-conscious, to the more indulgent, DTH was really a treat! The “hidden” outdoor courtyard was lovely - just close enough to the bustling activity...More

DTH was on our list of restaurants to hit up while in Maui. We were able to visit on our last day; unfortunate for us, because we would have definitely come back for more! Stuffed grilled cheese fills you up and is excellent!

This was one of our favorite restaurants on the island. It was a fun outdoor atmosphere and great food at a reasonable price. After having fish 4 nights in a row, we wanted something different. They had several chicken options and a really creative menu....More

We enjoyed the Lava Lava shrimp, Mahi was great, and Carla was a great bartender. If in Lahaina, go to this place, it's awesome. We loved the live music and enjoyed a shave ice at Breakwall across the way.
