I've eaten here on several occasions and have yet to actually find a dish I enjoy, so my opinion on the food isn't positive, but I know it's my own fault. The only 'flaw' of this restaurant is that, because it's so touristy, table upon table are crammed on top of one another, making for a pretty cramped meal. It's also always busy so you wait for awhile.

The location, however, is amazing. It's right on the corner of the walkway which makes for good people watching, any time of day. After that it's all beach and ocean. It's a gorgeous sight to see while you're eating.

Not really anything special for the price. NIce place to sit and relax but all in all pretty average and would not be high on my to visit again list. Fish tacos pretty dry and average.

We hit this place for Happy Hour sunsets and dinner a few times. Great location at Whaler's Village on Kaanapali Beach, very good food and friendly, professional service. Prices, although not inexpensive (what is on Maui?), were actually fairly reasonable considering the primo location and quality of food, compared to other places in Kaanapali/Lahaina. Definitely worth a visit.

We had 2 different visits to this restaurant during our vacation to Maui. We had been shopping in the Whalers Village were the restaurant is located and decided to have lunch. This open air casual atmosphere is great, a great vantage spot to watch all the people walking down the beach walk, just kick back and relax. We had the Beach Burgers and fries, They were great. The service was good and our waitperson was very efficient and friendly. We will go there again next year.

There is both a beach bar with a simpler menu and a restaurant with a full dining menu. Both are quality as I enjoyed the fish tacos for lunch on several occasions and the dinner there was some really good dish with forbidden rice. Also the wait staff was top shelf.
