“Tradition”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

It has become our tradition to eat our first Maui meal at The Cool Cat Cafe when we land in Maui on our first day. It's a long plane ride, we are tired and we don't want to have to think too much. Cool Cat is where we go. The menu is simple. It is good and atmosphere is great. We eat outside and overlook Front Street in Lahaina and decompress. The fish sandwich there is unbeatable. The hamburgers look really good, but we usually don't come to Hawaii to have burgers. We want fish and the Gish we get here is just plain hood. Thanks,Cool Cat, for helping to make our life easy on our first day on Maui.

“Big, Tasty (Expensive!) Burgers”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

Big, tasty burgers, crispy fries & onion rings. Located on Front St,, has the Cool Cat 50's diner thing going on if you still like that sorta thing; a good place to go in Lahaina if you don't mind dropping $40 bucks on a few burgers & beers. An overall 3 rating, but 4 for burgers.

“Sit at the balcony!”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

Ask to wait for a seat at the balcony; this restaurant is right on Front Street. It's fun to sit and watch the people. The Frings are the best.

“The aroma from Coo Cat Cafe drew us into their open air seating.”
Reviewed November 30, 2013 via mobile

Great burger with home made onion rings. I had chicken strip salad with their home made each dressing which was terrific. We were too full for dessert there so had to walk.

“Nice location and good food”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

My daughter had the catch of the day (mahi mahi) sandwich. She is 12 and loved it, I had the Duke burger and my wife a salad. All of us enjoyed our lunch.
