Mama Fish House is a bit hard to get into (recommend booking before you depart for Maui). Super seafood, especially the MahiMahi signature dish. Great location and watching the waves!

We were not a rehearsal dinner. Two couples on vacation together. Will likely go back just to have dinner there even if visiting another island. That's how much we love place.

Yes they do , it is limited but sounded delicious . I can not exactly remember what was offered(mahi mahi was one ) and I'm sure it changes. There was 3 options but we only inquired as we were not with children .
