One of the more popular local bars in Wailuku, this bar offers more than cold beer and a conversation. It's not chic, it's not trendy, but it's a wonderful spot to enjoy a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. Stop by anytime after work and you will find the place filled with area office, county and construction workers who gather for pau hana drinks and an assortment of pupus. The menu consists of a long list of small plates of local favorites including sautéed smoked meat, shoyu garlic edamame, tempura, teriyaki beef and much more. During football season, this is the spot to watch the live feed for UH Warrior football games. -Lottie Tagupa
From the abundance of rainbow banners to the beach views, this open-air, breezy eatery is a gay hotspot in Maui. The setting is tropical and quite tasteful. Though the space is small with a bar dominating the main dining room, the views of lanai are fabulous and the ambiance is peaceful. But, when happy hour rolls around, the good-looking clientèle come in from the beach for beer, martinis, music and madness. The café has an abundance of nightly specials from lobster night on Wednesdays to Sunday brunch specials that include bottomless mimosas and champagne. -Lottie Tagupa
Top-notch entertainment and perfectly prepared cuisine make this a premiere Maui attraction. A little island history: Lahaina used to be known as Lele. In those long-ago days, gala royal feasts were held along the beach. They featured the best food, music and dance of the island. This is a reconstruction of the ancient royal celebrations. Executive Chef James McDonald presents a mouth-watering array of specialties representing all the regions of Polynesia.
This restaurant is located in the courtyard of a downtown Lahaina landmark. The Inn (P.I. to locals) was the only hotel in Lahaina for a long time and is currently a comfortable Best Western property. Fusion-influenced cuisine and fruity drinks are served in a tropical garden setting. The menu features fresh local seafood and produce. Graze on Kula green salad and spring rolls, or go for a heartier choice such as the Fettuccine with Scallops and Mussels.
Fleetwood's on Front Street is the brainchild of Fleetwood Mac guitarist Mick Fleetwood, offering a crowd-pleasing range of signature tropical cocktails and world food specialties on their luxurious lanai seating area. Start off with a delicious libation such as the 1944 Mai Tyler or the refreshingly fruity Pimm's Cup. While most of the menu puts seafood front and center, a wide selection of Mediterranean and Asian Fusion dishes make sure there are options for everyone in your party. Make sure to grab a seat on the outdoor patio to catch a sunset that creates a perfect end to a light lunch or start to a great evening out.
Tourists and locals alike return to this oceanfront landmark in central Lahaina. Sit on the lanai, sip cocktails and look out on the Pacific. The prime rib is savory and tender, and on the lighter side, there are four to five fresh fish offerings daily. Be sure to save room for the Hula Pie, made from a chocolate wafer crust, macadamia nut ice cream, chocolate fudge and whipped cream. Live Hawaiian music is a firm feature here.
