Very limited selection of vegetarian options. Very nice setting at pokai bay! Would like to have more local produce available.

The dinner menu here is from Da Crawfish & Crab Shack - so read my review there where I describe how they want to charge you 'market price' for buckets of frozen shrimp/crab/crawfish.

Maili Sunset is also known as Da Crawfish and Crabshack. We didn't see any signage from the road saying Maili Sunset. The restaurant and bar is located upstairs so you will need to climb a flight of stairs before entering. Once you are in, the ambience is nothing to write home about but the service and food is. I ordered... More

Super sweet waitress, delicious shrimp and $1 pints, what is not to love? Would go back again and have another shrimp burger. :)

What a dump! How this is considered waterfront is beyond me. Pathetic atmosphere. Smelled urine walking up stairs and scared for my family when we entered this pit! Couldn't run out of there fast enough. Go to the "other" rated Sunset grill" which is in the army barracks and actually ON the water! This one is across the highway!!!

The good: Get the combos, and split them amongst a group. The food is fantastic, fresh and delicious. The wait staff is attentive, attractive, and informative. The bad: you may have trouble actually finding it. I never saw a sign that had the exact name of this place on it. Just look for something that says

If you go here be prepared to wait and wait for everything. For 5 people appetizers to dessert took 2.5 hours.

Really good food and excellent service. Thirsty thursday drink specials one of which was $5 margaritas. I had one on the rocks and my wife had frozen. Both very good. We went for combo no.1 which had clams, crawfish, snowcrab, shrimps and sausage for good measure. Not big on the crawfish but everything else was delicious. Plenty of food for... More

We stopped for dinner based on reviews. Food was mediocre at best. Sign outside advertised prime rib but it wasn't available that night. Great view out of very dirty windows. No ambiance.
