This was our second visit to Longhi's Wailea. We met friends on this visit and knew of their daily lunch special which is a 1/2 pound angus burger for $8.95.
When we arrived at the restaurant there was no advertised special. When ordering I asked the waiter if the $8.95 burger was being offered that day. He said. "NO, if it was, they would have told me about it." The server admitted he was new, but still didn't feel he should ask if the special was being offered that day.
So, we paid $12 for the burger that we planned to pay $8.95 for. (i know it's only $3.05 savings, but that's the cost of a soda!!!) It is advertised as a "Half pound" but it was closer to 5 or 6 ounces. The burger was just okay. We had to ask for the other half of the bun. There was only half a bun under the burger when it was served.
Our fries arrived 15 minutes after the burger and our friends' sandwich, so we were pretty much done by the time they arrived.
Looking at the "VisitMaui" App, the deal is there clearly stating the $8.95 burger any day of the week between 11:30 and 5:00 up until 2/28/14. Why didn't the server take the time to ask if this offer was valid? He was not a very good server, that's why.
I think the restaurant was taking advantage of a rainy day and decided not to make this offer public. But, if someone knows about the offer they should honor it.
Food was just okay. Service was less than okay.
