“Noisy”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Good service and pizza. It was crowded and very noisy. Difficult to find parking space. Good location to Makena and Wailea resorts and to get away from Hotel food.

“Best draft beers in Maui!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Monkeypod has a very wide selection(over 30 different) of ice cold draft beers. They have a specially built very cold beer storage room below the restaurant. Their pizzas and salads are good. Fish dishes are better elsewhere in Wailea. The saimen is fantastic as are the many different house made cream pie deserts. Sitting and dining at the bar is fun with plenty of locals around. This restaurant is run by Peter Merriman who is a well respected chef on the islamds.
This is a great place which we visit everytime we are on island!
