Maui Eats and Beats

Check out some great places on Maui to eat and listen to local Hawaiian songs, maybe even dance a little hula while you're at it!

Alan Wong's Amasia @ Grand Wailea

I love the Alan Wong's restaurant on O'ahu (so does Pres Obama), it's one of the best in fine dining on the island. His notable mentions: James Beard award winner for Best Chef in Pacific Northwest, and founding member of Hawaii Regional Cuisine. Updated review: amazing 5-course pre-fixe meal. I...

Tiki Bar at Ka'anapali Beach Hotel

Want to try the best mai tai on Maui made by one of the coolest bartenders? Uncle Dale has been serving up mai tais and other delicious and awesome drinks for over 40 years! Tiki Bar has live music nightly and draws a good mixed crowd. Come try a drink by Uncle Dale, enjoy the music, and try to hula dance...

Mama's Fish House

beautiful, old tiki feel, situated right next to the beach, open air restaurant. the service was great and the food was delicious, detailed in presentation, flavors were bold and just right. prices are on the high side, but it's a definite must-eat place if you are enjoying your vacation on Maui....

Lahaina Ice Cream Parlour

Mmm, I love desserts! Ice cream is a great way to cool down from the warm Maui temps. Lahaina Ice Cream Parlour serves locally made Lappert's ice cream from Kauai, flavors like Kona coffee, mango, mac nut, coconut, and more.

Moose McGillycuddy's

Moose has a great happy hour almost each day. Food is casual and quick, drinks and good and flavorful.

Mana Foods

A great local food company to stop in Paia to pick up supplies for your road trip to Hana or the beach. Lots of healthy organic food and drink options. Workers are friendly. Store is very eco and health conscious.

Aloha Mixed Plate

Aloha Mixed Plate is a favorite as the food was local, fresh, casual dining, and a good deal. It was called the “paper plate meal with the million dollar view”. It took us about 20 minutes to walk there from where we parked. It would have been easier to drive but then it would have been harder to find a...

Paia Fish Market Restaurant

I went to Pa’ia and ate dinner at the Fresh Fish Market Restaurant recommended by Lee. Ordered the Obama Burger special, ono fish burger with wasabi butter and coleslaw…mmm.

Tasty Crust Restaurant

Tasty Crust is known for their world famous pancakes, especially the banana pancakes. It’s soo good, fresh and full of banana flavor. Gotta add a little island coconut syrup to it, yummo. I had to eat it before I leave Wailuku. Not sure if I’ll get the chance to swing back that way on this trip. There will...

Hard Rock Cafe

A good place for classic American food like burgers, sandwiches, fries, and drinks. I like the rock and car decorations on the walls. It's great location, right in Lahaina and across the street from the ocean.
