Moose was my "go to" place for the BEST caesar salad in town until the recent menu change. The caesar used to have beautiful, fresh romaine lettuce, hand torn, with grated fresh parmesan and excellent dressing, served in a large attractive bowl. I loved the mahi caesar which has been eliminated from the new menu.

The "new" caesar is finely chopped lettuce, hard to tell if it's even romaine....no more mahi on the menu so I had chicken which was cold, dry and old tasting.

I guess Moose is the place to go if you like large portions of mediocre food, but if you want a fresh, wholesome salad look elsewhere.

I would think a menu change would mean they were trying to compete and become better. Maybe they also had a chef change. That might explain why Cool Cat was totally full with a wait time of at least 20 minutes for lunch and Moose only had about a dozen people in the restaurant at the height of the lunch hour. Hoping they at least revive the once excellent caesar salad.

This is the place for a (relatively) inexpensive breakfast. Bear in mind that most things are a bit more expensive in Hawaii. That said, Moose's offers one of the better deals for breakfast on the island of Maui. Located on Front Street, in the heart of Lahaina, Moose's offers a full menu from early in the morning until late at night. I can only address the breakfast options, and they vary from a simple plate of fruit and toast to one of their specialties (Loco Moco) with eggs, a hamburger patty, and rice all smothered in brown gravy. They also offer large Banana Nut muffins and a wide variety of omelettes. As everywhere on Maui, the restaurant is very casual. It's not particularly easy to find as it's on the second floor of a building on Front Street so you have to pay attention and look for the signs to find it. Be certain to check the travel guides available at the airport and other locations for coupons. They typically have deals that can save you even more money. It's a fun place that serves good food at a good price.

Moose McGillycuddy's had been a favorite in the past - it's been a couple years since my last visit- I was disappointed this time food is just okay.

Love the breakfasts at Moose's. Alway large portions and great tasting. Prices are very reasonable.
Husband loves the huge muffins that come with the breakfasts.
DInners are good too but I we find it way too noisey.
The bad thing is there is no handicap access. I have a broken ankle that is healing and the long flight of stairs made it quite hard to get up there and down. Love the view overlooking Front Street.

Look for coupons (two for one) and arrive hungry for breakfast. Sit and enjoy Front street's traffic and a really good supersized breakfast with leftovers for tomorrow. Good service, budget priced Bloody Marys and a view. Come back later for food and drink specials during happy hour.
