Visited this place with my family for dinner. The service was exceptional, view on the ocean is spectacular and the surf and turf is the best!

We stopped by for a late lunch The first thing you notice is the spectacular location. It's kind of suspended on a wharf that juts out over the ocean, where the waves crash below you. We were shown to a table perched right at the...More

Service was a 5, but the food was just average given the high quality and supply of great right on the strip in Lahaina. With Lahaina Fish right next door and fleetwoods within ear shot (just a few examples), it's hard to justify the prices....More

Picked this place randomly. The food was outstanding! It's not a chain and the food was delicious and plentiful. The burger was the best I've had in a long time!

This is more of a casual dinner. Ok if you think this is your style
Hello! This restaurant was recommended by friends, with the advice to try to eat on the deck over the water. Is it necessary to make a reservation for this seating? What about for a lunchtime meal? Thanks!

While not necessary, it is always a good idea to make reservations. Seating on the deck over looking the water is very popular and may be requested when making your reservation. I recommend making a reservation to ensure the... More
Aloha TBotzon from Spokane, WA. Thank you so much for writing to Koa's Seaside Grill. Where we are located is the heart of the retail district for all of Maui, the world famous Front Street, Lahaina. Front Street, in the retail district and does not have a beach. However, there are very nice beaches starting at 505 Front St and continuing south to the end of Front st. We are at 839 Front St. So, from our restaurant, you would need to walk south about 5 minutes and you are at beautiful beaches friendly for all to sit, relax, surf or snorkel or stand up paddle. I hope this helps. Please come visit Koa's Seaside Grill while you are on Maui! Our phone number is 808-667-7737. Aloha and Mahalo!😀
