Nice chilled out beach front restaurant and pub. Sand on the floor, laid back service and atmosphere. Decent food, what you expect from this type of place, good cocktails and cold beer. Just what you want while wanting a feed and a cold beer in Maui.

We actually were going to Moose Mcgillicuddy's for breakfast but were seated in Fred's. Found a 2 for one breakfast coupon in one of the free magazines. Great service and good value.

We visited here both for breakfast with family and dinner with friends. This is a casual, open-air restaurant within easy reach of several local vacation rentals and beaches. Breakfast had large portions, a large number of options, great coffee and reasonable value. Dinner had some very good options (Taco Tuesdays is very popular) and also good value, with dishes ranging... More

Solid taco night. Lively place. Only went once and got good service. Not the best Mexican I've ever had, but not bad. They had a great selection of salsas. I'd go again.

Good spot for a no fuss lunch or dinner. It's a bit bar-smelly but the margs were great and the food was decent.

Went for breakfast (waitress Anna banana was fantastic) and 2 suppers here. Tuesday is Taco night special so you get good food that's inexpensive (2 maragritas & 4 tacos for $25). Loved their chips and salsa. It's casual and they are good at assessing how long it will take to get a table (buzzer provided so you can shop while... More

Food was ok not many vegetarian choices but the margaritas were good. We went there as it was right next door but we felt we have eaten way better mexican food. The location and the ambiance is fun though. It's right across from Kamaole beach.

This place had been recommended to me on the flight over, but today at lunch, only one part of one meal was satisfying - the Baja fish taco part of the Mix and Match. All of the other entrees were only so so at best, and none of these other servings were really warm - not the chicken tortilla soup,... More
