Excellent Prime Rib steaks for 2 of us, tasty Grilled Jumbo Shrimp for another & a collection of well cooked Sides (including panfried fresh green asparagus) for the vegetarian in our group. All served by the knowledgeable, helpful, friendly & bubbly Shanna who was happy to accommodate all our requests (& we had quite a few!). Well stocked Salad Bar... More

After 7 days on the island we headed upcountry before our flight out. The village of Makawao was very quaint and had a great number of shops to browse through. The Steak House was at the right place at the right time! The decor was true to the era the former homes and stores were built in and we appreciated... More

Two tender filet tenderloin steaks were delivered to my wife and I complete with a small serving of baked beans! Absolutely brilliant! We had to also splurge on the sautéed mushrooms (yum!) and a baked potato (with all the good stuff). A great dinner plus a salad bar, which my wife pronounced "wonderful and full of fresh greens." Affordable, exceptionable... More

We went to dinner early after a very long flight. The restaurant was fairy empty and the service was attentive. Prices were as expected for Maui. Average meal. Probably would not go back, not because of a bad experience but because there are so many more excellent places on Maui for good food.

We have eaten there several times and have found the food quite good; a pleasant, rustic atmosphere in Historic Makawao Town.

This is a wonderful restaurant. While they are a steak house, they also serve much more including a wonderful grilled Ahi. The salad bar is good. The restaurant was so good we ate there two nites in a row. The building is old and has much charm.

Sweet, clean, just off street so parking somewhat limited but worth that small inconvenience. Clean, attentive and friendly staff. Wife and i had 2 different cuts---she loves prime rib, i love a great rib eye. Neither of us were disappointed. Their side of beans pretty flavorless but that's nitpicking considering all the rest. Go and have a meat eating good... More

Took forever to get drinks. We ordered apps. The calamari was excellent the French onion soup is usually excellent but was watered down w practically no onions or cheese. We ordered our entrees and the salad bar. We just had gone to the salad bar and the server brought our meals out. So we had full salads and expensive steaks... More

Romantic it's not. But, excellent steaks at relatively reasonable prices when compared to other steak joints on Maui. Popular with locals. Reservations are recommended, but not required.
