We love Lahaina, but it seems like places close so early. We were thrilled to find Lahaina Coolers! Just what we were looking for. A small hang out with good food and it was open! Mostly local folks or people getting off of work. The bartenders are wonderful friendly guys who will make you a great cocktail or pour a... More

We decided to have breakfast here as there were tables available and the restaurant was just across the road from the Ainu Nalu Resort where we were staying. Both my wife and I ordered the omelette as we thought $8 each was quite reasonable. The waiter asked what we would like in our omelette - my wife wanted port. sausage,... More

It was a rude defianate NO by Frank. When we did go in he totally ignored us just walked past reading a paper. We... More

Stopped by on the walk down to front street from Ana Nulu after seeing an inviting patio with classic rock n'roll playing. I decided to have the Huevos Rancheros and my wife had the Tumbled Eggs. What a great breakfast before hitting the beach! We will definitely be back!

We had one breakfast and one dinner here. Both times were very good. We were looking for something small with a more local feel and this fit the bill nicely. The staff was friendly and the service was prompt. Our meals were good and priced reasonably. There is also an inexpensive parking option behind the restaurant which is nice for... More

We walked to this restaurant from Lahaina Shores for breakfast based on the Trip Advisor reviews. We were not disappointed. The ambiance of the restaurant was inviting and warm. Our waiter was attentive and friendly. There was a table of older ladies sitting in the corner that looked like they were enjoying being together as friends. And... our food was... More

A trip to Lahaina is never complete without a trip to Lahaina Coolers. Great breakfast with huge portions. Surfer burrito is giant and delicious. Crispy breakfast potatoes yum! Of have macnut pancakes and all of your breakfast favorites. Indoor outdoor setting with the trade winds keeping you cool.

We had the Loco Moco and Fried Rice, which were both delicious! Their hot sauce is home made and incredible! Nice atmosphere, clean and the wait staff was helpful in giving suggestions on local activities. Wish we had time to go back for dinner...

I absolutely CANNOT rave enough about the chef Vince at Lahaina Coolers. Yes, it may look like a tourist trap or a place to just go for a beer and watch a game on one of the TVs, but you MUST eat here. Vince the Chef is a foodie at heart, trust me. The seafood scampi is to die for,... More
