Mama's again

Sorry, there was a recent post about the ambiance at Mama's, and how the pricey-ness is partly for that reason (sorry ,can't find the post!) Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for any other places with the "tiki" ambiance (anyone ever dine at the old Outrigger in Prince George BC? - if so you will know what I mean!) that won't break the bank - and by that I mean dinner for 2 adults & 1 keiki in the $150 range max......Mahalo everyone!

My first rec would be Duke's at Honua Kai. Family friendly, good menu and very reasonable. Next would be Hula Grill, another TS restaurant. They do a good "modern Tiki" style decor and ambiance, for lack of a better description!

Dukes has neat memorabilia, is upbeat and noisey.

Take a look at the Sea House at the Napili Kai condos. Great ambiance, and they actually have a tiki lighting ceremony @ sunset(or at least they used to, it's been a few years).

I'm a HUGE tiki fan, so I've done a fair bit of research on this topic. I haven't been there, but the South Shore Tiki Lounge in Kihei looks like a hoot! www.southshoretikilounge.com/?page_id=20 - not the fancy dinner looking type place, but definite tiki atmosphere. Perhaps some of the locals could give more information on this place on the quality of food etc?

Ooooooooh! Sea House at Napili Kai! Great choice. Lovely ... quiet.

Also like Leilani's in Whaler's Village (indoors). Make reservations.

We ate at Hula Grill and Leilani's when we were there last year, and I'm sure we will this year too - both are great, although we liked Hula Grill the best. I also really enjoyed Kimo's in downtown Lahaina. We sat on the patio there for lunch and it was fantastic. I don't think Kimo's is necessarily so "tiki" like though.

Got it in 1 ! The sea house sounds like it fits the bill perfectly, It's always one of my stops, but must admit it has been a while. I remember much of the property by the restraunt lit by tiki torches, it looks onto the ocean and beach (right outside the doors IS the beach.) They use yo do a childrens hula program 1 night a week, I don't know if that is still in place. They use to also do an early bird special.The location of this place could be the best on Maui!

I recommend either Seahouse or Kimo's. Last time we were at the Seahouse, we took a lot of photos at sunset. They turned out great; in fact one photo was included in our Christmas card that year!
