“Atmosphere and value”
Reviewed 3 July 2014 via mobile

Finally a restaurant in Maui with atmosphere. A bit noisy and a bit fun this restaurant is not as straight laced as it's cousins in the huge resorts. But it is good food and great value. It's not cheap, but it's reasonable. I preferred my meal here to nearby Ko and definitely preferred the price! Come here for a great meal and a good night out.

“Huge place, alright food”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

This was a funky place to go. Found the menu large but lacking anything stand out wow. Very loud and very busy. Service was good and the fish and chips were well done. Didn't find a reason to go back though.

“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.
