We preferred the lounge area, soft cushioned chairs with rollers, dinning room not so. Start with onion soup, delicious and cooked inside a very light pastry shell, no heavy biscuit nor stale bread. Ceasar salad was equally good, not a heavy glue dressing, but I did need to ask for more for lower levels. Others said the salad bar was... More

We try to go here annually for our Christmas Party. The prime ribbon is amazing. Have gone for dinner with friends and everything on the menu is delicious

When you come to Maui you must try upcountry Makawao Steakhouse! The beef is tender and high quality!! Love their version of Mai Tai with a twist "Maui Golden Sunset" my favorite! Bread served before dinner is focaccia with whipped butter that has hint of olive very unique!

I got the bone in Rib Eye. Good flavor and texture. Would only give the place 4 out of 5 due to the lack of passion. Food was good and service was ok, but this steakhouse didn't knock my socks off. I'd go there again only after I explored other steakhouses on the island.

We went here as a 12 person group. Three close to me had steak and all of us chewed chewed chewed and sawed sawed sawed to even get through the steak. The prime rib of 2 others looked good. The 'famous' French Onion soup looked *meh. She tasted it and left it, nibbling only on the cheese under the filo... More

This place was great all around. The staff was courteous and helpful. We arrived before the dinner hour but were able to sit in the lounge. We had our drinks and our orders were taken early and food served promptly. Hot and delicious. All of us had the prime rib and it was excellent. If I am every on Maui... More

Overall a good experience, hostess needs a little training on how to help customers and make them feel welcome. Waiter was good but kept asking us if we wanted bread (4 times) and never brought it out. Sides are all family style which would have been nice to know before ordering them, since 2 members in our party got the... More

My husband and I went to Makawao this afternoon to do some shopping at the suggestion of a local we met in Paia. After we spent a couple of hours walking around and shopping, we walked into Makawao Steak House to have an early dinner. We were very promptly greeted and seated in the dining room. We were then promptly... More

Always a must when on Maui or Upcountry, the steaks here are the bomb, great atmosphere, lots of history on the walls, good to see while ordering, good wines to compliment your meal, sit back and relax!!
