“Too bad about the Parrot.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014

Besides the fact that they have an African Grey in a barbaric, outdated cage, I had a nice breakfast here (stayed at the Pioneer inn for two nights). If they could get this poor bird a proper sized cage and not something out of the stone ages, I would have had a better experience here. I could not stop thinking about how sad it is that this bird has to be trapped in probably the worst cage I've ever seen for an African Grey.

“Great location, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

This is a great historic location in Lahaina. Open for all meals but we were here only for breakfast. It was good food, good prices. The location is ideal for before or after a whale watch or snorkeling trip since its right across from the harbor. We think we may stay here for a couple of nights on a future trip just for something different.

“Slow and Poor Service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

Have enjoyed breakfast here on previous trips, but this time was terrible. Long waits to order, very slow delivery of food, and errors with the order. Watched several parties get up and leave because no one came to their table to provide beverage service or take their order. If I had to determine the reason, I'd say they were extremely short handed. Not going back here again.

“Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2014

The food was very good but be patient with the wait staff. They try, but appear to be over-stretched at times.

“Great breakfast and friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014 via mobile

We had breakfast twice after an early whale watch. We were hungry after several hours on the ocean and food hit the spot, both the macadamia pancakes, Hawaiian sweet bread French toast, omelet where done to perfection and serving sizes were generous.
On both visits staff was friendly and attentive. We will be back
