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.

Title says it all. Bartenders are friendly and cool, food is good, cocktails are on par with the rest of the more "upscale" places, and the view absolutely can't be beat. They also have pretty good music it seemed like nightly.

BEST fish we had in Maui! You have to try the local favorites. It will melt in your mouth. They have a great atmosphere and service is excellent.

“Kimo's”
Reviewed June 17, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This restaurant has the possibility to be a great restaurant in Lahaina, but is extremely disappointing. For what they serve they are over priced, and while the servers are friendly, the delivery is about 50% being accurate at what you wanted. Never go there again!

“Great views, food mad music”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

I had a late lunch with a friend at this restaurant. The views are wonderful. I had fish which was pretty good. There was a live band playing really enjoyable classic rock. Service was attentive.
I enjoyed my lunch and will be back.
