I stopped by for a light dinner one evening and was pleasantly surprised to find a fun, entertaining trio performing. I just had nachos and an ale, but they were good and a generous portion. Fun, unpretentious place to eat in an open-air setting, and prices were very reasonable.

This is a good place for a quick breakfast before a day of adventure. Their Huevos Rancheros are the best. Great pancakes and a good traditional American breakfast. Great Blood Marys! I had a "new" cocktail we invented on our trip, called a Screw Robby (Vodka with pineapple juice and a squeeze of lime). All in all, a decent value.

We first came in for breakfast. What a delight. Much better than the hotel breakfast bar. GREAT SERVICE!!!!! We came back a few days later after returning from Hana. Had a few drinks in the bar, again GREAT SERVICE. It's a must stop when you visit Lahaina, this is one of the oldest hotels in the city.

We went on a rainy day for happy hour. We are an easy going family and weren't looking for anything fancy. The margaritas were great but the food and service was mediocre...we ordered wings (x2) and nachos with pork. The nachos were very good and the wings were under cooked and portion very small. The waiter left the table without... More

We had lunch at the Pioneer twice during our stay. The food was very good and prices reasonable for Hawaii. The hamburgers are huge so bring a big appetite.

Breakfast here two days in a row says a lot! Beautiful ocean view while enjoying a good cup of coffee and good food. Easily seated both days, even with our larger group of 8. Friendly server quickly got us all water without us having to ask! Coffee quickly followed as well as other drinks. Everything we ordered was delicious -... More

After our ultimate whale watching experience we walk across the street and had a wonderful lunch. The view was awesome! Service great even though it was busy and the food was yummy!

Whether for breakfast, lunch, dinner or just for happy hour, you can't find a more historic or nostalgic location. Built back in the early 1900's, you be seated in this quaint open-air restaurant right next to the harbor, with all of the action and excitement of this touristy location. Don't expect a 5-star menu, just all of your favorite family... More

While the view of the harbor is excellent, it was over-crowded to be a peaceful lunch. Food was good, but pricey. Service was very good. Would return for convenience, but not for a leisurely meal.

For lunch and dinner we offer the freshest fish, Maui grown burgers and steaks and a full range of small plates including hearts of Romaine caesar salad, seared ahi and kahlua pig sliders. The historic whalers saloon is the perfect place to watch the fishing boats come in with their catch while enjoying one of our Mai tais or another tropical favorite. We offer local draft beer and know that you will find our resident African gray parrot entertaining.
