This little restaurant is a must-visit on your trip to Maui! The food was pretty affordable in comparison to most meals on the island, and the fish is cooked perfectly. My husband had the fish & chips, and I had fish tacos. Delicious!

If you're bringing a large group, you may have difficulty finding a place to sit together. The bench seating is always full! We were able to squeeze in a spot, but this isn't a place to sit and people watch--there are people waiting for your table!

Traveling to Maui a few times per year, a visit to the Island would be incomplete without lunch at the Fish Market in Paia. Yes, one has to line up to order for often over half an hour and then wait to pick up their food for another fifteen minutes prior to finding a seat at trattoria style seating.... With that said, there's a reason for the crowds and that is the finest fish and chips anywhere in the world!!!

Definitely worth the wait and the drive.

If you're looking for a casual dining experience this is the place! Shared seating at picnic style tables and order at the counter. Fish is super fresh and excellently prepared in a variety of ways. I would recommend this place to anyone!

we stopped here for lunch after a tour was cancelled. we were by the airport so Paia was not far at all.
both of us got the fish and chips, probably the best fried fish i've ever had. the people there were super friendly. not a lot of seating but the tables are long so you can ask someone to skootch over.

proves my husband's theory that you find the best places on vacation by just stumbling onto them rather than making a res somewhere well known.

This is a great place to stop in on the way back from Hana. It's a lot of food for the money. It's a nice casual atmosphere with picnic style seating. Great plate of food.
