“Great Daily Catch Choices!”
Reviewed 24 August 2014 via mobile

As others have written, getting a seat can be a challenge. We arrived at 6:30 on a Saturday and lucked out. Our party of 4 got a table immediately. We had one person sit at the table when 3 of us read over the menu board at the front counter. There is a good deal to choose from so you might need a few minutes to read through the menu options. The counter staff was very patient while we worked through our menu selections. You order at the counter and they will call your number when the order is ready.

3 of use ordered "daily catch" fish dinners and 1 the Mahi & Chips. The "catch of the day" choices were excellent. We had, Mahi, Ahi and Opah. The Mahi was charbroiled, Ahi blackened and Opah sautéed. Each came with Cajun rice and cole slaw. Excellent! The portions were large enough that we each had left-overs.

The food is excellent so expect it to be crowded and since the tables seat 6-8 people expect to share a table. Well worth a visit.

“Get the fish burger.”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

We enjoyed this place so much, we ate here two days in a row. Grab a fish burger and a beer- so simple, so satisfying.

“Best Seafood on Maui”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

This place has the best seafood on Maui! Their shrimp basket is my favorite. Seating can be a little difficult if you go during a busy time since it's all picnic style tables but it's definitely worth the wait.

“Awesome!”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

Awesome food! Friends said it's a 'must go to' when in Maui and we were not disappointed. I hope you're hungry as they give you a lot of food for the price.

“Disappointing - bland and dry.”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

I had an ono fish burger with fries. The fries were great! The sandwich was bland and made palatable by generous dousings of tiger sauce.

My partner had the ono fish plate, and complained that the fish was dry and overcooked, and later left an odd taste in his mouth.

Busy, vibrant atmosphere.
