It was getting late so we stopped here, it was close to where we were staying. We tried the special of the night, Ribs. Tender and juicy and way too big for one...you can share! Very nice staff and nice harbor view.

We ate at Beach Bums our first night in Maui. It was very conveniently located to our condo. We arrived about 10 minutes before happy hour ended and our server graciously slid in our drink orders in time to meet happy hour prices. The food...More

Great barbecue. Best pulled pork on Maui. Sampler platter was great too. Portions were big enough we took leftovers home for another dinner for two.

Went there for happy hour. Super cheap drinks. Fun, relaxed staff. Ended up having dinner there. Very good BBQ. Plenty of flavor and good texture. Smoked spam was a creative bit of local flair. Other reviews said the place is not vegetarian friendly, but we...More

Beach Bums has sheltered outdoor seating and seating back further so you aren't in the open air. They overlook Ma'alaea Harbor so there is always fresh air. Unlike a previous review, we have been MANY times over the years and have ALWAYS had great service...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
We love this restaurant and staff. Wish we could challenge a May 26 review re: "nice location...that's about it". This person must have been reviewing the wrong restaurant. Beach Bums Wailuku (Maalaea) HAS no beach to have a "nice view" of. It's a view of the harbor. And people patronizing this establishment for food generally are going for the bbq, not burgers. Frankly, over the many years of repeated visits, the staff has always been wonderful. The food, the staff and the venue are all part of the reasons they would have to beat us off with a stick to keep us away! The review detailed above must be of another restaurant as the details don't jibe with this location.
