“Delicious food at a decent price”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

We went here for dinner one night in Maui, it was a nice atmospheres, there was live music which was a nice touch. I had the Maui Cattle Company cheese burger which was delicious and very juicy, my wife had fish tacos which she enjoyed but were a bit on the spicy side. Very reasonably priced and food was very good, would recommend.

“Limited Menu Choices but Fantastic Food”
Reviewed January 24, 2014 via mobile

We were not thrilled with the menu, but we decided on try bhe utternut squash ravioli for an appetizer and the pizza special (Mac nut and pesto). Both were great, and I would eat the ravioli as an entire meal if I could. The Pod Thai drink was also outstanding and served in a clear tiki.

“Gr8 view of Sunset From Patio. Food & Service big thumbs up!”
Reviewed January 23, 2014 via mobile

Happy hour meal size portions. Very good high quality food. The squash ravioli with spinach and goat cheese covers all corners of taste buds. Thin crust pizza is as good as it gets especially mushroom/ parmesan. Lots of beer local and afar on tap. Extensive wine list. Will return for dinner. The sun setting as presented the bill was perfect timing for a very enjoyable meal.

“Go during happy hour”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

They have great deals if you can make it in for happy hour. $6 pizza, discounted app's, beers and cocktail specials. Its worth every penny, and you'll even spot locals at the bar which is a sign of a good place to check out.
