Great setting and the food is good. It’s not a place to go for 5+ star food and service; but it’s good overall. The setting is in the sand looking out at the ocean and that’s the experience you’ll get. The view and the dolphin sitings make it all worth while. The staff is super friendly and create nice vibes. A happy place for breakfast.

Was very pleased with the service and food during our recent dining for lunch. Good variety to choose from, no issues. Was at the Chart House probably 3 years ago and it wasn't very good - decided to try it again and was very pleased. Will be returning.

Love mama’s! We try to go every time we’re in Maui and it’s always delicious. Pau Hana is one of the best cocktails I’ve ever had. Love the ambience too and staff is always very friendly.

Our meal outside facing the river and a beautiful sunset was outstanding. Our server, Carolyn G, was pleasant and attentive. We started with Lump crab and shrimp stuffed mushrooms which were very tasty. My wife had Seabass and I had Rainbow Trout. Both were cooked perfectly and were delicious. Our wine pairings Spy Valley Sauvignon Blanc were great. Our mini desserts of Raspberry Chocolate Chip and Carrot Cake topped the meal.

The portions are excellent and everything was fresh and as ordered. Our Mac n cheese wasn't hot so the server brought us a fresh one, which was nice. All of the servers were nice and friendly without being pushy. A very tasty non-alcoholic beer was on the menu so that was great for our designated driver. The only drawback is the dogs that are in the restaurant. It would be nice to have a section where dog owners can enjoy their meals away from other patrons who do not want to hear dogs lapping water or barking at each other. Definitely does not make for a pleasant dining experience, which one would expect from an establishment like this.
