“Only Bar with A/C”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

Dive Master told us about the Goose. It is a hole in the wall in an industrial area. I loved it, cheap drinks and you can slip out for a quick smoke. Everyone there was real nice and no West Coast goobers telling everyone how much smarter they are in California. Be sure to but a t-shirt and get ready for everyone asking where it is and they never saw it on Front Street.

“Great Local "Dive" Bar”
Reviewed 11 May 2010

After leaving the Old Lahaina Luau, we were looking for something a little less touristy. That's when we found out about The Sly Mongoose. It's hard to find, so get a cab driver to take you there. It's in an industrial area and looks a bit rough from the outside. Inside the small bar, we found a mixture of colorful locals who all knew each other and were having a great time. We sat at a table away from the bar to be respectful to the locals. The bartender/ owner immediately called us over to the bar, asked one of his local friends to scoot down and make room for us, and instantly made us feel at home. We and one other couple were the only visitors from the mainland, so the bartender sat us together and introduced us to everyone by yelling to the small crowd. What a fun night! We met so many great people and had a lot of laughs. If you get offended easily, I don't think this would place for you. It's a "dive" bar, so raunchy jokes aren't just acceptable, they are encouraged! Needless to say, we took a cab back to the hotel because they know how to pour a good drink at the Sly Mongoose. We will definitely visit the Sly Mongoose again if we return to Maui. I just hope it doesn't change!
