Joe's is a short walk from the Four Seasons and the Grand Wailea. It's a bit tricky after dark as the side street is not well lit. Parking lot is across the street and a golf cart will take you back and forth to the restaurant.

Food was generally good, but thought it was better over at one of Bev Gannon's other restsurants, the General Store. Waloo special and the meatloaf was good, but rice and veggies were an afterthought. Chocolate bread pudding was very good.

If you experience the 2 for 1 Entree Special and witness an amazing sunset this is Maui at its best.
The food is very good and the service is friendly. We've found some good value for money wines from their winelist and Suque (pronounced Suki) is very knowledgeable about wines if you need guidance.

Food was pretty decent. The ribs were not the best BBQ we've ever had, but not the worst either. The prime rib was a bit tough, but ok. Service was good and quick.

My husband liked the ribs. MY fish was drenched in butter and too rich... nothing special. My cocktail was a bust.

We went here for the BOGO special (buy one entree get one free) from 5:30-6:30. The mahi and meatloaf were both solid and I would recommend both. Mai tai was average, a little on the sweet side. I would recommend this place if going for the special pricing. Without the 2 for 1 it is too pricey for what you get and better choices with similar prices like Nick's.
