Dined at Joe's after reading reviews online. Found the restaurant to be overrated. The food was good but certainly better options exist on the island. The worst part of the experience by far was our creepy waiter who stalked our table all evening. I'd suggest passing on this experience. Too many other great places to choose from to waste your time here.

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.

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.

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.

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 !
