Local place with mainly take out and a few tables. Ribs and chicken were very good. Large portions, good side dishes. Good prices.

The whole chickens, both teriyaki and roasted, were fantastic. The ribs were generous and exceptional. The ribs reminded us of Luau pork, but much more tender and juicy. Their bbq sauce is very good, but I advise getting it on the side..a little goes a long way. This is some of the best bbq that we have had anywhere. We... More

November, 2016: Had the Quarter Traditional Chicken one day & then the Half Rack of Baby Back Pork Ribs several days later. Wow! Talk about some really good food and lots of it. Family-size portions. I made two meals out of each order. Will be heading straight there next year for more! Caution: if you get the B-B-Que sauce on... More

This rather small restaurant caters to locals and visitors alike. The staff is amazing. If you order take-out, your containers are thoughtfully placed in what appears to be the top of a pasteboard box for easier transporting. Nice. The bar-be-que is excellent, especially the beans. I'd say that the half rotisserie chicken was among the best I've ever tasted. I... More

This eat-in or take-out place in Napili Plaza has the best teriyaki chicken I have ever eaten. On a couple's getaway, we brought home a half-chicken several times. It makes for a very generous meal and we found the chicken to be flavorful, moist and delicious. Good to call ahead and reserve your bird. We enjoyed it so much that... More

This is my husband's and my "go to" restaurant for a quick and delicious meal to take back to the condo and enjoy the sunset over the ocean. We go for the chicken and mac salad plate. We've returned to Mama's many times over the years.

Everything they serve here is excellent. It's expensive but a "must do" when you're there. The decor is "old Hawaii" and so much fun to see. But the food is just dynamite!

We were staying at the Sheraton in Kanapali and tried 3 or 4 of the restaurants on the beachfront since our days were often long and we were not in the mood to drive to Lahina each night. Mama's was only several minutes walk from the beach hotels making it very convenient and no driving required. We were were pleasantly... More

Food is very good but not worth the $50 entree price. A decent glass of wine can cost $21. Atmosphere is probably the best Hawaiian tropical on the island of Maui. On the beach, but noisy as it seats 200+ at any time. Definitely crowded at all times. A reservation does not guarantee an on-time table. Service is excellent. Given... More
