Nice location, decent food. Nice selection of cocktails and a great view. Pop into the Maui divers shop and they give you a coupon for a free appetizer.

Had breakfast here a few times and was very impressed with service and cleanliness. Menu had great selection from basic to island style dishes. The down side for us tried happy hour and the bar area is small and selection of drinks wasn’t much.
