Description: Right on the water and in the heart of historic Lahaina, Kimo’s brings you and your o’hana (Hawaiian for family) a casual, completely Maui dining experience. Renowned our “postcard” views of Lanai and Molokai, we offer a menu featuring fresh Hawaiian fish, prime rib, prime steaks and the original Hula Pie, Kimo’s has been a Maui must-do for over 30 years. The upstairs main dining room shows the architectural influence of New England on the former whaling port, with koa-lined walls, missionary-style furnishings and maritime memorabilia. After dinner, Kimo’s lanai becomes a very cool hotspot for tropical cocktails and Hawaiian music. Live entertainment is offered on weekends and select week nights.

“Maui staple”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Kimo's is one of the landmarks on Front Street Lahaina. The food is fresh and well prepared. The menu has changed a little but in a good way. Always one of our must do stops while on Maui. The burger, ribs and other local favorites are worth the trip. eating lunch on the patio there are great ocean views. The staff is attentive and fun, the drinks are the best..

“Love this restaurant”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We had dined at this restaurant for lunch during our week stay in Maui, and because we were celebrating our 30th anniversary, we knew we had to return for dinner. We made a reservation (a must if you want an excellent ocean view), and when we arrived we had a 10 minute wait as we had requested a table in the area closest to ocean view that you can get. We were seated on the lower level and ordered a drink while listening to a traditional two piece hawaiann band.
The friendly hostess escorted us upstairs to their dining area and we had a table with the best view of Maui's sunset.
Our waiter was quick to get our orders and our food was delicious. They offered us their famous hula pie complimentary for our anniversary.
And the prices are very reasonable here. Highly recommend this place. Will be back again.

Great food, wonderful scenery and sunset watching to die for. Another MUST visit for a wonderful meal. Make sure you ask to be seated on the deck or upstairs at one of the windows.

“Loved the location!”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

The location was great and the fish was awesome! It was only a 10 minute wait at 7pm in October. It was a nice way to end a day that started with a Trilogy Lanai Trip
