My husband and I make it a point to come here at least twice every time we're in Maui, when we first arrive and right before we leave. The freshest fish, reasonable prices, and friendly service. Best poke bowl I ever had! Two thumbs up!

Off the main street, three tables and a bar with stools, all mains served with fries and cole slaw. Lots of kitsch. Busy at 5:30 with eat in and carry out but quick service. We had the fresh fish of the day, ono and mahi, in fish ahd chip dinners. The ono was firm the way my partner likes it... More

I had the special of the day- spicy ahi tacos. The portions are big and there was a great amount of fish in each taco. My son ate one of them and loved it. My husband had a burger and really liked it. My other son had the fish and chips off the kids menu. The fish was bland, but... More

Great place for Poke but I don't know about anything else. I also had the Crab Cakes which were very salty. Overall I enjoyed the theme of the Hawaiian seafood shack that serves cooked food and sells packaged foods. I recommend this place for their Poke and nothing else. Another great poke spot is the Times Supermarket, I kid you... More

Tucked at the end of Wai Wai Pl,, Eskimo candy is a great place for lunch. Super fresh poke bowls, great fish & chips, delicious chowder, large portions, casual setting. Been visiting this place since 2008 and have never been disappointed.

Grabbed a quick dinner here. Food was ok but not memorable. Fried fish & chips were greasy. Fish tacos were ok but not as good as other places.

This small deli with inside and outdoor tables in an industrial area of Kihei servers up a delicious, filling lunch. My husband and I shared fresh ono fish and chips served with coleslaw, and a fresh green salad. Plenty of good food for both of us. This is another past favorite that we introduced our family to this trip.

We wanted to buy some local fresh fish and were told to try Eskimo Candy. The got the name Eskimo candy from a sugar glazed salmon they sell - we didn't try that - we tried the fresh fish. The place was busy so it took some time to get and keep the staff person's attention. We bought some Walu... More
