Thought this was a tourist trap but really enjoyed the food. My son said he had the best grilled cheese ever. Wait wasn't excessive. Family really liked the milk shakes as well. Moderately priced but again in Maui, all food is on the pricey side vs. mainland. Just have to deal with it and don't let it bother you.

After experiencing the ridiculous pricing of the options along Kaanapali beach, it was a relief to have something one third of the cost, and really not that much different in terms of quality. The burgers were spot on, I had the Marilyn and my wife had the Jailhouse. Big, tasty and went down a treat. Some of the comments below... More

Enjoyed a Mai Tai while watching people on Front Street. The burgers are delicious and big. Didn't try a Malt this time but they are fantastic. If seated by the railing it's fun to watch what's going on on Front Street.

Overall, we were a group of 9....all of us really enjoyed our burgers. I had the Lahaina hula chicken sandwich, while the majority of the crowd had burgers. They also had gluten free buns! What we didn't enjoy was that the place was a bit too loud, the chairs were a tad uncomfortable, the French fries were way too salty,... More

We went here to eat because we were looking for an old fashioned diner from the 60's. While the burgers and the meat courses were good, the French fries were expensive and way too salty. None of our party of nine ate theirs. They had a singer playing a guitar and he was excellent.

Stopped here for dinner after reading the dining guide for Lahaina. At 6pm on a Thursday night the place was busy, we had to wait about 10minutes to be seated. Once seated we were served promptly. Food and drinks came out quickly, I had the baby back ribs with fries, coleslaw and garlic bread. A huge meal, the glaze on... More

Ok, so next time I order just the basic burger. I got their version of a mushroom Swiss burger. Seriously, there was no way I could get a bite of it without a knife and fork. There was even grilled maui onion on it. Amazing! Next time I'll skip the fries even though they were fantastic. The burger was more... More

Stopped in for lunch on a port day and got service very quickly. Burgers were great to order, servings were ample. It's on the third floor, so you have some stairs to contend with, but the experience and view are worth it.

Thank Helen S
