Our restaurants are founded upon a passion for craft and we are dedicated to mastering the craft of food, drink, and merrymaking...With Aloha! Our menu features fresh island fish, hand tossed pizzas from our kiawe wood-burning oven, and homemade cream pies made from scratch.

Our passion for craft also extends to our diverse wine list, which emphasizes sustainability, drinkability and fun. Come join us at our communal table, with friends old and new, and learn what it's like to share our "Lucky Live Hawaii" story.

Great restaurant and very reasonable prices for the Island. Feeding a vegan can be difficult but the restaurant had an entire menu for dietary restrictions. We ate here 3 times in a week. Highly recommend making reservations.

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!

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.

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.

Fantastic food and great selection of beverages. The french pressed coffee and fresh made pies were to die for!
