Once we got the food that we ordered it was very good. Prices are high, but average for Maui. They could use a lot more help as the place was busy and only one gal was waitressing and tending bar. Only one cook onsite. Not fancy, probably a notch or two below a normal sports bar.

Sports bar, but has a nice back porch. Great beer selection, and the burgers were very good. Well priced, affordable.

We stopped for a beer and to catch the end of a playoff game. The place is friendly with prompt service, and the crowd was spirited but well-behaved. There's nothing really distinctive, though. We didn't order food so my "average" rating doesn't cover the menu.

After a round of golf, four of us wanted to hit a local spot for a quick drink. We quickly decided there were appetizers that had to be tried. We ordered the wings, fries, and wontons and enjoyed each one. The "tornado fries" were so crispy and delicious! Stopwatch was a cute local bar with friendly staff and customers. We... More

Love the ambience of the Stopwatch, and the great food, drinks people. The Stopwatch is a popular weekend stop at the bar, and serves a variety of good food. Check it out.
