“One of the best meals onMaui”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

We've been there twice in past couple of weeks. The food is excellent, the service great and the manager "James" was constantly checking on tables to be sure everything was up to the customers expectations. The restaurant is clean, including the restroom , and nicely decorated
Too.

“A Disappointment”
Reviewed May 5, 2014 via mobile

Last night my husband and I went to dinner for our anniversary. We live here and both work in the tourist industry, so we understand how crazy things can get unexpectedly, therefore, my husband made a reservation for a oceanside table on the deck 2 days in advance.
The restaurant was only half full, yet we had to wait 15 mins for our table.Since we had to wait, I used the restroom, although it was nicely appointed, it was dirty.
Once we were seated, our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. Our appetizer was very good and our dinners were delicious. However, the beef tenderloin entree was actually just 2 small slices of beef resting against a small scoop of mashed potatoes with 4 asparagus spears. It was misleading and child sized for $32.
We won't be returning, and I can honestly say that we won't be sending our clients there either.

“Good food, service not so much.”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

The food here is good, sandwiches and such. Our waitress wasn't very friendly, and kinda short with us. The other gentleman walking around, maybe the manager, was very friendly, and spoke to all the tables.

“Awesome view from upper deck”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

We stopped in for lunch and a cold one. The service was great. We had Poke Tacos, excellent! Great way to enjoy a cold beverage & a view of Lanai in the distance.
