“Friendly staff, delicious food”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

Located above the Wailea Tennis Center, it is a little difficult to locate but once you arrive you will not be disappointed. We were met by a friendly hostess and excellent server who treated us like one of the Gannon family. This visit I ordered the Kobe Burger and my wife ordered Joe's Famous Meatloaf. Each entree was delicious and cooked to perfection. You cannot go wrong with any item on Chef Bev Gannon's menu. It is always a treat for us to visit Joe's when we are on the island of Maui.

“This place is great”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

We had a great meal at Joe's. The specials were wonderful and the atmosphere is very laid back.

It is a little out of the way, overlooking the tennis garden in Wailea so it may be a little hard to find, but really worth the effort.

This place has a great selection on the menu, and the Meatloaf got rave reviews from the table next to us. The slow roasted Prime Rib is huge, perfectly medium rare and delicious.

Portions are seizable. Service is very good and you don't get rushed but aren't left waiting either.

We had a nice table with a view of the sunset.

Joe's is definitely on the schedule for my next visit to Maui.

“A very nice birthday dinner”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

We went here as it came highly recommended by friends who had been to Maui in December. The restaurant was a bit hard to find but food was delicious. Service was wonderful as well. I had meatloaf - not something I was expecting to get, but was told it was one of the house specialties.

“Great food in Wailea”
Reviewed April 2, 2014 via mobile

This is one of our favorite places in Wailea. The service is great and the food is very,good. I enjoyed the MahiMahi tonight, and my husband ordered the meatloaf. Delicious ! The Kula salad with blue cheese is fresh and crisp. Find Joe's early in your trip because you will want to go back for seconds !

“Comfort food!”
Reviewed March 28, 2014 via mobile

We were pleasantly surprised by our visit to Joe's. it was a bit hard to find due to minimal signage that was not lit. It is very dark in this area! We finally figured out that you park in a lot for the tennis club and a golf cart shuttle takes you down the hill to the restaurant. Nice open air seating that overlooks tennis courts. Not a scenic view or anything, but this restaurant probably would have a nice view of the sunset, but we arrived after dark.

I had the surf and turf special which was quite a good deal at $40 and consisted of a tasty steak, large prawns and mashed potatoes and broccoli. My husband had the ribs, which he said were fantastic and falling off the bone tender. My daughter loved the chicken tenders from the kids menu.

All around good food at a reasonable (for Maui) price!
