“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed August 20, 2014

The Pioneer Inn was our most visited restaurant in Lahaina. We had breakfast lunch and supper here. The food was always prepared with care and well presented. The service, with one exception, was cheerful and unrushed.
If you are ever lucky enough to be here on a Tuesday night you will be treated to the outstanding music of Ah Tim, an incredible local artist who should charge admission, he is that good.

“Great service!”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

Service here is wonderful! We went twice, once for lunch and once for breakfast. Lunch was excellent, and my husband enjoyed his breakfast, but my macadamia nut pancakes were not that good. I would still return and order something different the next time.

“The Spirit of Maui”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

Welcoming in its airiness of open windows, doors and the soft full voice of the Maui Musician singing Hawaiian songs. The service was splendid. The authentic island fare of calamari, ceviche and coconut prawns were yummy!! Graced with locals I always take that as a sign that the restaurant is approved by the best source. Food was moderately priced in comparison to the restaurants I popped my head into. Drinks were $6 rather than $12 or high as $15 in other places.

I have already recommended this great find to some other travellers I met.

The ambience is authentically Hawaiian. It keeps the spirit of the Pioneer Inn as it was many years ago. Classic....I expect Humphrey Bogart to be hanging out here at one of the tables.

“Pretty good food!”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

Convenient location,view of the water too. Service was fairly fast considering how busy they looked. We ordered calamari,which were huge chunks! So good. Both of our entrees were delicious too. Sat outside to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine,a great place to stop.
