“Great service, value and food”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

We had reservations at the Monkey Pod and were seated as soon as we arrived. Our server was pleasant and great with the recommendations. We had never been before; the couple with us had – actually just a couple nights before.

The menu had a good variety and the prices were very reasonable (especially for that area.) We shared a few pizza’s which we all really enjoyed.

My only regret, not trying the pie!

“Excellent especially Happy Hour”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

Been here three times in two weeks, twice for Happy Hour, once for regular hour dinner. Happy Hour pizza and other appies are outstanding and service was great every time.

We ate outside each time this year. We ate inside once last year and found the food great but found the ambient noise very loud. At Happy Hour when we were there last night there was a band. (Not sure how regular that is.) While the music was ok, it was too loud. If dining inside was the only option with the music we probably would not have stayed as good as the food is.

The noise level inside is the only reason I don't rate it as a 5. I realize that is not an issue for some.

“Must see in Wailea”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

Monkeypod is a happening place with great food, a crowded bar, and live music. The food was a great blend of Hawaiian specialties, with good cream pies for dessert. The service is also good. Very convenient to the Wailea resort area - walking distance.

“Great value food in Wailea”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

We were only in Maui for 3 days, and we ate at Monkeypod twice (which is incredibly rare for us! we don't generally go back to restaurants on holiday, even if they are fantastic). There were too many awesome things on the menu for us to try in just one sitting. They also had a great range of beers on tap. Everything was very reasonably priced (for Wailea!). Would highly recommend the Poke Tacos.
