“Great food”
Reviewed June 13, 2013 via mobile

Went here as I was driving back from Hana. Great place to eat. As I was walking to find a place to eat , I saw a lady coming out of this restaurant raving about what great food she ate here. So i asked her if this was good and not so expensive like Mama's Fish house which I originally stopped to eat at. With no reservation and a pricy menu , i said to my hubby... Let's run outta here before they suck us dry. We went to Paia a local cute town with shoppes and restaurants. This was well worth the long way up from Hana to eat. You will not regret it . I got the Mahi plate...delicious.

“Noisy popular dive”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

This is a great spot to pop into with family, young kids or old,
for a crowded fresh fish lunch. We had just hiked in Hana, swam in the waterfalls, and were hungry. My grilled salmon was paper thin but delicious. I opted out of the fries, and instead got a bland salad. Next time, get the fries, which are hot and greasy and perfect. My daughters had the sashimi, which were nice pieces of ahi with nothing else. Prices were okay, which was a benefit. But so noisy and crowded....Could have been better food and ambience. Might go back.

“Very good food, little else”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

Usually offer five or six kinds of fresh fish and a similar number of cooking styles. Their grilled fish is over a open flame. The food is very good and reasonably priced. All of their burgers are grilled fish. This is a self serve restaurant (both order and pickup) with long group style picnic tables.
They do use plates and silverware but busing the tables, not so much. There is not a hint of gracious dining here and parking is extremely limited although there are free public parking areas they are not near the restaurant and are usually filled up. This is NOT a fish market.

“Best fish sandwich in maui”
Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

Best fish sandwich in maui. You can pick what fish you want- opa, ono, ahi tuna etc.
Great ambiance. Delicious tiger hot sauce for the sandwich.

“great food!”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Small place where you order at the counter and then try to find a place to sit. The menu is fairly large and the fish is excellent. Well worth the drive. Try to miss the traditional meal times to make seating easier but do go.
