Description: Right on the water and in the heart of historic Lahaina, Kimo’s brings you and your o’hana (Hawaiian for family) a casual, completely Maui dining experience. Renowned our “postcard” views of Lanai and Molokai, we offer a menu featuring fresh Hawaiian fish, prime rib, prime steaks and the original Hula Pie, Kimo’s has been a Maui must-do for over 30 years. The upstairs main dining room shows the architectural influence of New England on the former whaling port, with koa-lined walls, missionary-style furnishings and maritime memorabilia. After dinner, Kimo’s lanai becomes a very cool hotspot for tropical cocktails and Hawaiian music. Live entertainment is offered on weekends and select week nights.

“Great food and Hula Pie”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2013

Great place to relax, but make reservations if you can. We booked about a week ahead of time and the earliest reasonable time we could get in was 8:00 PM; best to get in around 6 or so and enjoy the sunset. Yet, with all the people and busy, the staff was wonderfully friendly, the food was excellent and if you haven't tried Hula Pie - do.

“Delicious food, friendly staff, great service, perfect ambiance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2013

Shared a delicious vegan meal with my sister while dining at Kimo's. The tofu chowder was deeeeeelicious, the hot dinner rolls were served with a chili pepper balsamic "dip" to accommodate our vegan needs, the cold salad was yummy and the passion fruit and pineapple iced teas were refreshing. Mmmmm.

“amazing food and ambience and price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2013

Kimo's is one of my favorite restaurants in Maui. Especially being a non-seafood eater, the terriaki chicken and steak was amazing! My family enjoyed the seafood as well. The hula pie is possibly one of the best deserts to get in Maui. Kimo's never disappoints after going for around 20 years.
