We were unable to get a reservation ahead of our trip but checking back a few days ahead, we were able to get a lunch reservation. Nice valet parking and lovely beach location. The views were great and the service was good. It is just...really pricey—really i think setting a standard for Maui expensive for a mid-day meal. That would have been no problem but we felt the servers are also very skilled at upselling. There were several things that showed up on our bill that we did not realize were an additional charge. (Ie: for the “Short ribs and lobster tail”—server asked if we wanted two 3 oz lobster tails or one 6oz…did not realize just how expensive choosing wrong on that was..). But it is a Maui icon. Just think there are other places without the gotchas on the bill.More

The food and service are well worth the price. If you can’t make a reservation for the day that you want, then keep checking back on their website for a cancellation.

Got to Mama's Fish House early for lunch hoping to score a seat at the bar, which I did. Mike the bartender was outstanding. Everything he recommended was great and he was super friendly, as was the whole staff.

Continues to be a favorite of ours to visit when on Maui. Excellent, fresh fish with the highest quality and spectacular tasting flavors. Wonderful appetizers. Essential to get a reservation in advance. Valet parking is a must, and free. Service and setting is impeccable. One...of our ask time favorite restaurants.More

Good food, but a bit pricey, out of the way from the town. But a great view. Staff ready at all times, a must go to eat if you are on Maui. I heard bad things about this place but after going there myself I...realized they were wrong.More

Hard reservation to get ( e months out) but we’ll worth it. If you can not get into dinner, do lunch then you have the beautiful ocean with a view

I highly doubt it, but you could call. There is valet parking in a small lot; perhaps that would give you some peace of mind as the valet is always out there.
