“Awesome lunch spot!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

This is a must spot for lunch! Poke was amazing and very reasonably priced. Coconut shrimp was tasty as well. I would pass on the chowder.

“fresh bowl of Poke”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014 via mobile

I love this small place with all of fresh seafood. I ordered a bowl of Poke (like raw sashimi on top of a bowl rice) and it was just great. You must visit if you come to Kihei.

“As close to England in the Pacific”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

We love our fish and chips in England, this is as close as one can find, especially in Hawaii. The fish is always fresh and delcious. We bring the family here once or twice on vacations and always enjoy the food.

We have also gotten the poke which is excellent. I would recommend this location to anyone passing through. Great for lunch and also take away!

“Great fish shack, love the seafood chowder and coconut shrimp! Weird hours, tho'....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

We eat here all the time when in Maui. It's a great place to stop for a reasonably priced lunch or early dinner on your way home from a five trip or the South Wailea beaches.

I'm a chowder snob and love the seafood chowder. It's all good.

Also, if you'rer seeking an exotic piece of fresh fish for the grill, like butterfish, they'll have it if someone caught it that morning.

Beware, tho'...their pricing on their raw seafood can be 3-4x higher than what you'll pay at Costco, 30 minutes away in Kahului.

“Fresh fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

We wanted fish for lunch and we decided to try this place out. If you are looking for fresh fish this is the place to visit. On the day we visited they had onakapaka as their catch of the day. You can order the traditional fish and chips or they can prepare the fish broiled or grilled.

Parking here can be a mess, so consider a to go order and enjoy lunch out at the beach.
