The prices were not outrageous, but the food seems average and the portions were underwhelming. The ahi poke tacos were small and not satisfying. The staff was pleasant. You order and pay at the counter and the staff will bring food to you. There is...More

We stopped for lunch and were not at all impressed. My husband’s fish quesadilla was tasty but had very little fish. My fish and chips literally had 4 pieces of fish that were each no larger than my thumb. Keep driving past this place.

This location is off the beat on path. The negative for me was it was very expensive, with no view. In Maui, there are many places with amazing views with similar great food and priced about the same. Their claim to fame is the history,...More

We would walk down to the Harbor every morning for coffee and breakfast at this little gem. We enjoyed the picnic tables with the swings for benches, watching all the people rush to their boat tour every day. The food was excellent every time and...More
