“disappointed”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

well it has been 5-8 years since we have been to the pioneer inn. the prices were fair but the food was moderate at best. they used to have corned beef hash that was to die for. now you want to just die eating what you do..

the waited was bummed that i tried to change a $100 for a $50 breakfast. did it but did so with a 'nevermind i will go find change somewhere.." whatever dude..

if you want pancakes then maybe this is ok. but the bacon was fatty and not real well cooked despite asking for well done.. and my over medium eggs were hard over..
we wont go back there are great breakfast places in town and almost anything would be better than the pioneed inn.. the view is nice i will say that much...

“Whale of a time”
Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

After getting off a whale tour at 1.30 we were all very hungry for some lunch.

Seated promptly and the waitress was lovely and friendly and kids were given crayons and paper to color in.

Kids all had chicken strips and chips with chocolate milkshakes which were all finished up.
My husband and I had the mahi mahi fish which came with a mango dressing, rice and vegetables. I am not a big fan of fish but as it was Good Friday I wanted to order this. We both could have licked the plate it was so delicious. Nicest meal we have had in Hawaii.

Lots of history items on the walls and a parrot at the bar which our kids just loved.

Great job definitely will recommend to friends.

Thank you so much for sharing part of your vacation with us. We are glad you enjoyed the Mahi fresh daily catch. We buy our fish fresh from the boats that come into the harbor and believe that the freshness makes all the difference.

“Eat here after whale watching in the morning”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Pancakes bigger than your head. Good egg selections, and excellent servers, with great traveling tips. Reasonably priced for Lahaina.

“Fun restaurant”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

We had breakfast there and enjoyed it. This restaurant has great views of the wharf. I also liked the ambiance of the restaurant and the relaxed atmosphere, including the singing parrot. The staff were very friendly.

In the Historic Pioneer Inn...look one way for the Lahina Harbor and the other way for the Banyun Tree Park...great place for a cold drink and appetizers after you dock from your whale watch.
