We didn't eat all we wanted, we ate all we could!! We stopped at the Pioneer Inn for Breakfast during our morning stroll through Lahaina and didn't really know what to expect. Our waitress made a couple of suggestions, the Loco Moco (??) and Macadamia Nut Pancakes, and after a short wait were presented with some heaping plates and bowls... More

If one wants the feel of old Hawaii, this is a great option to evoke the memory. The hotel itself is a turn-of-the-last-century historical structure, and the open air veranda which houses the restaurant/bar completes the step-back in time ambiance. Sitting under the old fans and wooden ceiling, across one street from the old Courthouse, and another street from the... More

This is a good place to eat before after any kind of cruise leaving from Lahaina Harbor. We had lunch after a morning whale watch. It's old time Lahaina at its best. Nice atmosphere. All day menu.

Severely understaffed. Fish tacos were nothing special. Nice open location near the marina, across from the Banyon tree.

We were late to the party, but it was perfect. We strolled in shortly before closing time and the staff was very accommodating and even though it was close to quitting time, you wouldn't know it with the quality of the food and service! Loved the parrot, music, atmosphere. Everything about this place was great!

This bar/restaurant shows it's amazing whaling history everywhere! The bar is fun and the table service is great. Happy hour drinks & apps are good. If you happen to see Unk Tim sing you'll truly be lucky as he is definately worth looking into! A great Hawaiian enertainer!

The place is at a super location, directly at Banyan Tree, and serves very well cooked, delicious breakfast, served well. Ideal place to drop in after the early whale watching tours. Have been there many times and always come back.

Staying at the Pioneer Inn.. breakfast offers a varied choice of options. We don't eat much so pancakes and oatmeal are our usual, but much more available. My only complaint is that tea and coffee are never 'hot ' as in UK, tend to serve Luke warm. That said we have eaten dinner and the fish was good as was... More

Took awhile to get seated for breakfast since there was no hostess so we waited until a server had a break and they come get you. I had Mac nut pancakes and he had the Hawaiian French toast. Both were filling but no real flavor at all. Daniel was outgoing and energetic as our server

Enjoy Breakfast, Lunch, Happy Hour and Dinner at the historic Pioneer Inn Grill and Bar. Breakfast favorites include macadamia nut pancakes, loco moco and huevos rancheros in addition to healthy favorites like oatmeal or yogurt with fresh fruit. 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.
