You can't come to Maui and not eat at Mama's, it is the best on the island so far for me. Expect to spend a little more here than anywhere else, but well worth. The best scenery dining on the island.

Yes, but not your typical chix fingers and hamburger. Our 10 year old had a small portion of lobster for the first time. You might want to call them ahead of time. I am sure they will accommodate you.

Yes - nice shorts are fine. In fact, I don't think there is anywhere in Maui that requires "fancy" dress. It is "Island Casual" everywhere. Be sure to make a reservation!!
