Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

The food and drinks here are delicious! We stayed in Wailea 5 nights and ate here 3 nights - it's that good! The fish and chips are delicious, and the burgers are great too. Their Mai Tais are one of a kind - try them! The only thing is it is a little pricey, but everything is in this resort area.

“Find it early!!! You will be back!!!”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Very good and varied menu- from the garlic truffle fries to the fish tacos, we loved every bite! Good music for entertainment(but not too loud) and lovely helpful staff. I'm only sorry we did not find it sooner. Very good pricing, and they make their own cream pies every day- yum!

“Don't miss this place!”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Our only mistake was not going here the first night of our trip....once we made it here, it became our nightly dinner spot! So many wonderful entrees..the hamburgers are amazing and the drinks are one of a kind! We found the prices much better than the hotels and the quality and originality of the dishes kept us wanting to come back and try new things.

“A good experience!”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Visited on the recommendation of a friend, pleasantly surprised! One thinks expensive in Wailea, it is but is is worth going. In a small mall on the top of Ike Drive and Piilani Hwy is this worth while restaurant. We came for the Happy Hour. (3:oo to 5:30 and 9 to 11) There is live music in the afternoon and great views from the Lani. Draught beer is $4.75 and cocktails are $6. Appies are half price or have a $9 pizza. We had the Jalapeño Poppers, Wings, and the Pizza.....all excellent. They have an extensive beer menu; many local beer and micro breweries from around te world. The beer is served at 29 degrees...really good. There is a kids menu and many locals eat here as well. We will be back!

“Good food !”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

This place was very near to the Makena Golf and Beach resorts where we stayed. Great food, convenient timings, affordable prices and a good happy hour too. You will always find this place packed with people. Good options for vegetarians. I will recommend this place.
