“Good Food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

We went there based on a recommendation from the lady working at the Life is Good store. It was really great. The salads, burgers and fish tacos were good. Kids meals come with fries, and our adult meals you have to order the fries separately. We ordered 1/2 and 1/2 fries and onion rings. The lava flow drink was really good as they put ice cream in it. Yum!!! The shakes looked really good! The restaurant is across the street from the Banyan Tree Park.

“Great Meals X 3”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

My family and I ate here at the recommendation of our surf instructor - we are so glad he did. I had the Luna Burger (it has avocado) and my wife had the fish tacos. They were AMAZING! The kids ate cheeseburgers and they scarfed them down like we hadn't fed them in months. The kid's meals came with fries but my wife and I had to order fries/onion rings separately. For dessert we split the Cookie Monster shake and it was delicious. All around a great meal and we spent about $60 - pretty reasonable all things considered.

As for the restaurant it is an outdoor setting so like most of the other places birds dive in for floor scraps. It's not dirty - it's dingy and worn out though. Some of the chairs are in disrepair but the environment is upbeat, fun and well, on Maui. Our waiter was on the ball but may have partied a little too much the night before <smile>. He was still friendly and attentive to our needs.

On a side note, we went back two more times before we returned home. We made sure to eat here if our activities brought us nearby. Our kids really enjoyed the food and we created some great memories being at this restaurant. We also watched the US defeat Ghana in the World Cup which was an added bonus! Definitely worth a visit ... or three!

“Near The Banyon Tree”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

They are known for their excellent hamburgers. Today I am on a quest for the best tacos in Maui. I ordered the blackened fish tacos. The Ono fish was perfect for the taco. Friends bought the bar b que chicken sandwich and loved it. Also order the crispy onion rings instead of fries.

“Awesome food and good drinks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014 via mobile

Great salads for a burger joint!! My husband had the Chantelle burger, totally misspelled, and onion ring and fry combo. He loved it. Sat at the bar, nice view of Lahaina town. Great cocktails and quick service.
