Relaxing harborside venue with wonderful barbecue selections, much like found in the US South . The Irish Nachos are a must try!!! We missed it, but there is live music nightly.

Located over the harbor with its indoor/outdoor seating, take your pick and grab a seat. Kinda kitschy decor, but fun. We ate here twice while in Maui... It was close to our Condo, but we went because it was good. The sandwiches and burgers were...More
