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.

“Lunch with a great view!”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

Great food, friendly service and a beautiful view. We ate lunch there but I understand there is a wait in the evening and I believe they do take reservations for dinner. We only had to wait 10-15 minutes and we sat at the bar and chatted with the bartender which made the time go by. I had the coconut crusted fish (marlin) and my husband had the fish and chips which was mahi-mahi. Check with the waitstaff to see what the catch of the day is as it changes.

“Great Calamari”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

We visted Kimo's the last day of our vacation, we had wanted to try the calamari as well as the burger because we had heard they were both so good. The calamari was Amazing! We have eaten alot of squid, but nothing like theirs. It looked like chickenstrips! So tender with a great macadamia nut crust , yum. We ordered the chicken and rib plate and the cheeseburger which is a hand ground house blend of beef. The chicken and ribs were average ,a bit to much bbq sauce and over cooked rice.The burger , which comes medium ,was way over cooked well done infact. So unfortunately it was sent back . When it came back I received the same bun that I had cut inhalf with a new patty that was falling apart and again over cooked, albeit not as well done! I was quite disapionted, so if I had taken a bite of my first burger then sent it back would they have given me the bun back with a bite taken out of it? Not good, the plate should have look as good or better than the first one!! The meat had a nice flavour, but it was quite greasy.Stick to the calamari!

“Very happy Happy hour!!”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

We dropped by for happy hour drinks special and ended up ordering food. This was because: we were seated at one of the best tables along the seaside railing, our server was very pretty and very nice; their Mai Tai was delicious; the tourists around us were all happy so we just want to stay longer... Great place to spend time in late afternoon from 3 to 5pm.

“Kimos”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

Good place for a decent meal, with a good view and great service.Food is rather pricey but in line with most Maui prices. Fish was fine but not as remarkable as some other places nearby.
