We made a reservation 4 days in advance for an outside table for 2 at 6 pm. On arrival we had to wait for 20 min and ended up with an inside table as no outside tables were available. The special - a veal chop - was tough and I had to ask for a steak knife to cut it. My wifes chicken was overcooked and dry. The service was average.
A large party - 3 tables of 8 - arrived and were seated right beside us. We could hardly hear each other for the noise. Gannons asked its former patrons to return after they has some bad publicity. We did and it has not improved.
Pass on this one.....

we had our wedding ceremony and reception at Gannon's in Wailea. Brides are picky and want everything to turn out perfect... Gannon's and America the wedding coordinator have the system down! They have the most amazing staff, friendly and accomodating, we were more than satisfied with our night at Gannon's. If you are going to have a wedding in Maui this is the way to go... affordable for a top notch venue. We had 23 guests and I plan on recommend Gannon's Restaurant to every friend who gets married. It bypasses all the horrible wedding nightmares and skips straight to whats important.... you and your husband/wife and your families celebrating your marriage!

On a recent vacation we called in the afternoon to ask if we could come up for drinks and appetizers in the late afternoon during sunset, but we had a couple of children with us. I was told it would be no problem, we could sit outside and bring the kids during happy hour. I specifically asked if we should make a reservation and was told no, it wouldn't be necessary. However, not only was there a problem-- they would they not seat us because we didn't have a reservation, they had a "its not our problem" attitude. A half-hearted apology was offered after much discussion about the phone conversation but they really didn't care. Of course, if we walked out the door, there would be someone else to take our place, so why try to accomodate us? We're just tourists. So, we went down the street to the Four Seasons and got the service they are famous for.

Our concierge told us about this place and it was by far our favorite restaurant on Maui. It is very expensive but well worth it. The service, food and view were exceptional. The menu offered a little bit of everything so even the pickiest eaters would not have a problem. The restaurant sits high on a hill so you can enjoy the beautiful gardens and look out at the ocean and neighboring islands.

No comparison to the SeaWatch. Unfriendly service and overpriced, mediocre food. Will not be returning. The only good thing about this place is their view. We used to frequent this place when it was the SeaWatch and loved it every time. Our first visit to Gannon's, we were met with unfriendly service, long waits (for our table - we had reservations, and for our food), and terrible food for the price! We left this place with such disappointment. Will not be recommending to anyone.
