The Kula Lodge
Reviewed 12 October 2017 via mobile

We ate breakfast @ Kula Lodge 12 yrs ago while biking down Haleakala. It was 1 of my standout memories from a 10 day 3 island vacation. We're back w/our 3 daughters & Kula was a MUST. The mac nut pancakes w/pineapples topped with coconut syrup are still amazing, as is the lodge grounds & the store. We cannot recommend this place highly enough if you're in Upcountry Maui!

This USED to be ONE of my favorite eateries on Maui. Now, the management has once again changed and I recently received THE most unfriendly service from the new female manager. Prices have skyrocketed on meals, and the lady who tend the gardens is a cold, callous, unfriendly women, not at all what you might expect from a woman who'd job it is to water and plant flowers. I am shocked and appalled and deeply disappointed in the quality of service, management, and even for Maui the RIDICULOUS prices. I will spend a LOT for a great meal with even better service, with Kula Lodge used to provide. NOW> I have to wonder whoever owns this establishment... well, go see for yourself, if you dare. From and 8 year Maui resident who LOVES leaving GREAT reviews. So sad to see such a lovey view overcast with such horrid management, customer service, and ownership. If you want to pay these prices. go to Mama's Fish House where you will get what you pay for. Or, try formerly known as Makawao Steak House. You want the view. stick with Mama's.

Room Tip: DO NOT STAY HERE. You are better off at a B&B.

My husband and I visited this restaurant for lunch last week.....what a treat! Amazing view overlooking a wonderful garden and the hills of the surrounding area. Food was very good and service was wonderful....we plan on returning next year when we come back to Maui..

Spontaneous decision to stop here when in the area. Interesting location, nice decor (should find way to open the windows to let fresh air in), very nice views of their gardens and down and across to west Maui. People and service was quite good. Tried their brick oven No ka oi pizza. Couldn't really taste the flavors as the pizza was over cooked- crust dark brown, cheese even darker brown. Very disappointed.

A quaint lodge. Great ambiance. A keyboard player entertained us with pleasant music. We arrived just as they were closing up for the evening. They very graciously seated us and never made us feel rushed. The server was very friendly and took great care of us.
Will have to say the server & the atmosphere MADE this stop a success. Pricing was a little on the high side even for Hawaii; food was good, but not excellent. Would love to stop in again when it's not closing time to give it another shot.

We both ordered the Filet, cooked Medium. One came out medium, mine was more Medium-Well than medium and the sauce made it a little too salty. Pineapple up-side-down cake was AWESOME!

Overall a good experience.
