Spanky's is right next door to the Lahaina Shores, put favorite vrbo condo on Maui. Need a quick bite to eat, Spanky's is a local bar with at least a half dozen large flat screen tv's. Come Sundays Mondays, and Thursday nights this is the ideal NFL sports bar for Lahaina. The menu is typical bar food, with a Spanky's... More

we love going to this place because we always stay next door at Lahaina Shores. It's a younger crowd of surfers and workers from all over the world. It's an eclectic scene that has a local feel as the clientele are all working on the island. My partner likes to go here to watch mma fights which is totally not... More

A breath of fresh air, this bar has a 70's surfer vibe, friendly (but yes, slooow) service, dogs (yay!), wall-sized windows that open to the eastern hills, meh food, and $2 draft beers (not always). I was just so relieved to find someplace that felt semi-real in this northern stretch of wall-to-wall high-rises and corporate hotels. Go to catch a... More

Great watering hole type bar. Tropical theme. We were at the bar to watch the Warriors game. Good service from the bar, as we ate too. The funniest thing is the house dog which looks like part pug and something else. He would come sit under your bar stool when the food came to us. He had no shame and... More

We had heard great things about Spanky's so we decided to go there during an afternoon to watch some basketball and have lunch. It was a unique place with a great deal of character. A completely different crowd than at normal Maui tourist places, which was a nice change. However, our service was very slow and it was not even... More

Went to Spankys with some friends to have some drinks and snacks. We were able to get drinks pretty quickly but food took forever. I think they were shorty staffed but took at least an hour just to get fries. The fries were good and drinks were good. Nice open air atmosphere with interesting decor. Only place I've ever seen...

Great place to watch Red Wing Hockey. They had no problem turning on the game whenever they were playing. Very nice and accommodating work staff.

Many different alcohol options. Loved the eclectic decor. Loved the openness of the bar. The men's bathroom door has a very young Elvis Presley poster and the women's bathroom door has Farrah Fawcett's famous poster from the 80s. The staff could have been a bit more friendly to the tourists. They were very friendly to the locals. I recommend it... More
