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.

Reviewed March 14, 2014

This place is special to me as we have had dinner for special occasions and have had the best of the best seating before. Their food is very good, it has great environment with seating along the ocean side. We go here every time we are in Maui.

“Great casual place for beachside dining - good for kids”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

Kimo's was great - our waitress Joy was a lot of fun. This place had awesome MaiTais and the steak and wedge salad was a perfect lunch. It was nice to see a restaurant with such a beautiful deck not charge through the nose - excellent lunch.

“best food and value in lahaina”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

4 of us ate here. It was one of the few times all 4 enjoyed their entrees all trip. 3 of us had different fish, while 1 tried the steak. We were all happy once the steak was cooked to how we ordered. They were packed so it is hard for me to say service was slow. One of the ladys in our group ordered a mai tai but didnt like it so they took it off our tab without us asking for it. Overall we were very pleased.
