So like many visitors to the island, you arrive tired and hungry. We had stopped before at the maalea mall, eaten at seascapes. It is halfway between the airport and kaanapali,seemed like a strategy. But seascapes was closed so we chose to eat at beach bums. definitely casual, the menu focused on BBQ meats. The views are better at seascapes,... More

Visited on a busy St Patrick's day afternoon so service was a little slow. That said, the food was surprisingly good. Apparently known for their BBQ the ribs we had were juicy and tasty, as were the fish tacos. Prices were reasonable too, worth the wait.

We stopped at Maalaea Harbor on our way to the airport to check out the Maui Ocean Center. Beach Bums was the only restaurant open after we got done at the aquarium. This is just typical bar food - nothing special. They brag that they have the best BBQ on Maui but I am always pretty suspicious about a BBQ... More

Our hostess and server were very friendly and still efficient. The food was good, especially the 2 huge pieces of cornbread that came as my side. I had the Mahi wrap which was really large and the ingredients tasted really fresh. The location is great, right by the Maui Ocean center and some reasonable shops attached to it. There is... More

Convenient, but the food is average. Great environment though. We ate here twice just out of convenience.

Great service and great food. I have had baby back ribs all over the U.S. mainland, but had to come Maui to have the best ribs I ever tasted. These guys smoke their own meats and it shows. Great service, great food, and management attentiveness... Don't miss them if you find yourself on the west coast of Maui.....

We ate here twice during our recent stay. Both times for convenience, but a good choice anyway. Burger was good. Others in our party had the BBQ pork with no complaints. For breakfast I had the crab cake eggs Benedict, which was excellent!

This was recommended by one of our tour guides. They were out of ribs (supposedly good BBQ) by 6:30 and looked disorganized. We didn't stick around for the 35 minute wait.
