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.

“Perfect Night”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We have been to Kimo's before - same result. We don't usually go to the upper class restaurants but go here when my husband returns to the mainland while I stay behind for another month. He is a prime rib person and while it isn't cheap it certainly is not as costly as some other restaurants. This time we enjoyed a bottle of wine - and for me - we added the lobster tail. What can I say? Everything was delicious. They even served 'carrot muffins' along with the bread. And our waiter "J" actually gave me a couple to take home. Service was excellent and they sat us overlooking the ocean. What a view. I have been there when they have had 'Willie K' an island favorite.

“Good but not Great”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Great atmosphere! Love the bar area during sunset. Service was good, but not amazing. We tried fish, ribs and chicken and all were just OK.

“Wonderful Hawaiian Experience”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

We went to Kimo's on one of our last night's on Maui. We had reserved a table for 2 for 6:00 but not sure if we would luck out by getting a table right close to the water. We did! Plus we were lucky to be able to watch the sun setting into the ocean and our waiter took our picture with the sun in the background. However all the tables on the upper patio get you a view of the water and you get the lovely breeze. Anyway our waiter was Will and he was very experienced and told us all about the specials. My husband and I both went with the fish specials but different ones. Both were excellent and well worth the little bit extra for a seafood meal. Also the presentation and side dishes were amazing. We were there the 2nd week of April, 2013 and we are both very glad that we ate at this restaurant. We originally were only going to go to have a couple of cocktails. If we are able to go back to Maui we would definitely go back to Kimo's! Thanks to Will for making this a great Hawaiian experience!

“Amazing Mai Tai's”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

We enjoyed a great dinner on the outside patio and had a spectacular view of the ocean sunset. I had delicious fresh fish and the best Mai Tai. We had a coupon for a free Hula Pie. It was very rich and great for sharing. An overall excellent dinner after evening shopping in Old Town Lahaina. I recommend dinner here if you're in Lahaina.

“Hula Pie!!”
Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

Stumbled upon this place. Had fish tacos for lunch and Ono for dinner another evening. Food & view were fantastic. Found a coupon in one of the Maui coupon books for free slice of Hula Pie. It is huge and delicious. Try it with or without the coupon. If you can eat here around sunset...it is a perfect spot.
