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.

“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014 via mobile

We always go to Kimos on our visit to Lahaina! The fish is always very good! This is a very busy and loud place. Great for families. Nice view of the ocean but not a place to go for a quite romantic dinner.

“Great lunch, great service, great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

After spending the entire day shopping and walking all over the place, Kimo was recommended by many locals. Which can never be a bad thing.

Not at all over touristy and making you feel uncomfortable.

Amazing views looking out on to the ocean. Their food is excellent (Sashimi, Ahi Salad, and Fish & Chips) all excellent and well priced, lets not forget your on front street.

Cocktails were of good standards.

Staff were all lovely, kind polite, and efficient

“Island Sunset at Kimo's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

My new favorite drink is the Island Sunset at Kimo's! The food is fantastic. My hubby could not get enough of the lamb with plum sauce and the chicken was like having two meals in one! Service is incredible and sunset was amazing. Liked it so much we went twice and will visit one of their other restaurants in Tahoe when we return to the mainland! Thank you Kimo's!

“25 years and counting!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

Food is fantastic and if it was not we would not be comming back over the last 25 yrs! Right in the heart of Lahaina on the waterfront. We get there early to enjoy the views outside with cocktails, and have dinner watching the sunsets!!! The puffer fish are fun to watch below!

“Great at sunset”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

We got the bar menu. We were able to get a table on the edge of the water which provided a great view. The food was fine as was the service. Not spectacular..but fine.
