“A Must When Staying in Kapalua”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Over the top mushroom soup on special, I would highly recommend if they have it. I couldn't decide on main course between the snapper special and the diver scallops. They have an option of choosing two half orders of any entree which I did. The scallops melted in your mouth and the snapper was seasoned to perfection with local ingredients. My wife had a ribeye that was very good. Wait staff was very professional and efficient considering how busy they were. When staying in Kapalua I would highly recommend spending one night at Merriman's.

All I can say is WOW! Food...WOW. Drinks....WOW. View....WOW. Book it early because it fills up fast but make sure you go at least once. You will not be disappointed!

“Afternoon Delight”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

We found this restaurant a couple of years ago on a trip to Maui. It is a premier destination for food and atmosphere. It's sits adjacent to a nice beach where you can swim, snorkel or just just enjoy the sun.

In the afternoon, usually between 4pm and 5pm, they have a happy our on the expansive deck in the front of the restaurant. This is a great time and place to kick back before dinner here or another location. They serve a variety of drinks and pupu's during happy hour. The views are excellent, the food is unique and the drinks hit the spot after a long day.

We have been to Maui many times and this restaurant is always on our list for dinner or happy hour.

Everything about this restaurant is wonderful (food, atmosphere, drinks) and the view is spectacular!! Such a treat to go there! it is expensive but worth it.

The kids meals are even very good and there is a beach next to the restaurant where the kids can explore.
There were rumors of turtles hanging out on the rocks but it was getting dark as we arrived and didn't see them
