Oh, dear..............this is such a difficult and oft asked question. What kind of food? What kind of location/ambiance? What price point? How long a drive are you willing to do, and from where?

I see you were on Maui last fall-can you help us help you, by telling us what you liked then-and didn't?

If you are on a desktop or laptop, look at the food threads to the right. There are several with LOTS of food info.

Where are you staying? Are you really going to want to drive 45-60 minutes just for lunch?

My favorite place for lunch in south Maui is Stella Blues. No view, just good food and a nice atmosphere!!
