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.

Every time we go to Maui, we have to eat at Kimo's!

Kimo's is located right in Lahaina on the beach. There is live music down by the bar area and there are great scenic views as well.

My husband always orders the rib dinner and he is never disappointed! I always have one of their fresh fish dinners. This time I had the parmesan crusted Ono and it was very ono (Hawaiian for delicious)!

Kimo's Mai Tais are very good-not too sweet or acidic. If you are a dessert person, then you must have the Hula Pie for dessert!

Reservations are a good idea-the restaurant can get very busy at lunch and dinner time.

We were lucky enough to walk in after our snorkeling adventure further south. Front Street has a fun vibe and upon entering Kimo's you understand why it's so busy and popular - wonderful view, very friendly service, and great food. My son loved his prime rib, and the mashed potatoes were delicious. The Caesar salad was wonderful as well. Wish we'd saved room for the famous pie - saw many other diners enjoying it and it looked good!
Great view of harbor and sunset, very romantic.

Enjoyed lunch here, but had a 1.5hr wait to start. If you can stomach a long wait, there's plenty of souvenir shopping along Front St. while you wait.

The best seating is outside on the railing, with a beautiful ocean view. They do their best to provide shading for the outside tables.

The food was great - Ono sandwiches were delish! We shared one of their signature deserts - the Hula pie. Yummy!
