We were looking for a breakfast place and on a Saturday everything was packed until we found a second floor Bar and Grill that had some openings. Needless to say we were blown away by the promptness of service the knowledgeable staff and island atmosphere....There is a wide variety on the menus sure to please anyone’s pallet. I would 100% return to this establishment.More

Lava Rock Bar & Grill was recommended by a friend who visited Maui in October. I thought she was kidding when she she said ate here for breakfast lunch and dinner because the food was so amazing. No joke! The food is the best on...the island! My husband and I ate here almost every day during our recent trip. They have the best fish & chips. We tried other places and were always comparing it to Lava Rock. The tartar sauce is homemade and delicious! You must make this a stop during your time on Maui!More

Went for dinner with family - I did not receive my order till the rest of the family was done with their food - and this after reminding the staff over 10 times - each time they would come and tell me- let me check...and then crickets - till I found someone else to ask. When asked to speak to manager - here is the manager’s reply: “If you want to eat out on Christmas - you should expect this” “If you come to Hawaii - expect this”. If I could - I would give them a negative rating. I will let you decide…More

After finding this little gem of a bar we went back several times for their happy hour. The drinks and food are delish and the bartender Cody was the best. We even watched the Chiefs football game and had an absolute blast!

Overall a good experience. We visited during happy hour and enjoyed the flexibility of eating any of the appetizers for 50% off. The food was good and was as expected. Our Mai Tai’s were good, but seemed quite weak. Service was good andour server was...friendly and knowledgeable A fun energetic pub with a large covered patio. It’s has good vibes and was great as it was raining outside.More

Lava Rock has a great balcony. Although, it is not ocean front, there is a water view. There is a happy hour from 3pm to 6pm, with 50% off appetizers and drink specials. Staff were friendly. We visited twice during our 2 week stay in...Kihei. And, will definitely return on our next visit.More

Cool place to watch NFL and have breakfast. Food is very good. Tyler is an awesome bartender. Polite and attentive, also not a bad singer. Many selections of beer and $2 mimosas until 2p everyday. A great view of the ocean and awesome atmosphere.

Ordered “volcano trio”, ribs, chicken tenders & coconut shrimp. When delivered server said “sorry tout of coconut shrimp “ Instead they gave me 3 tiny grilled shrimp. Had I known this, I would have ordered something else. We used to go here a lot before...Covid, and even early on in Covid since it offers outdoor dining. We stopped going after they we shut down for Covid violations. First time back after over a year The food is usually goodMore

On our 10 day vacation in Maui during October 2021, we dined at this restaurant 3 times, once for breakfast and twice for dinner. When we went for breakfast, we were surprised that we we could get seated immediately at an ocean view table. The...first time we ate dinner there, we didn’t have reservations and had to wait in line. We did get seated at the bar and had excellent service. We made reservations the second time we went for dinner and got seated immediately at an ocean view table. We were impressed with the view, food and service each time we were there. We would go there again when in Maui.More
