I would definately return for the amazing burger I had, plus, our waitress had patience of a saint, considering she had no room to move between tables, chairs and customers. Thank Sammy!!!

Bartender would not serve me. Was insistent since sitting at table adjacent to bar wait for a server. When we explained the server had already been by and saw I was at the bar he told me that I needed to wait for the server. I had already ordered 2 beers but he would not pour. I made three attempts... More

If it were anywhere other than the airport I'd say skip it. But given the location it's OK. We had the kahlua pork sandwiches, which get a plus by being served with bbq on the side rather than drowning the pork. The iced tea had an interesting fruit note. The best place I've eaten in the Kapalui airport.

We stopped in for breakfast waiting for our flight home. We ordered a Bloody Mary what was not that great, mix and vodka with some seasoning around the rim and a limp piece of celery. It came in a high ball glass and they charged 9.00 for it! Not worth it at all! The breakfast was okay but nothing special,... More

I didn't expect much from an airport restaurant, and that's what I got. Sammy Hagar Kahului Airport Restaurant is one of the few places where you can get some non-fast food and an adult beverage. The service was okay, the food was okay, the ambience was okay. I don't want to be negative, but 3 is an okay rating, not... More

While waiting for flight back to Phoenix we stopped in thinking that what we were going to get was not going to be as good as it was. Kobe burger was excellent and Caesar was actually very good except for so-so dressing. Salad veggies were very fresh and other elements were up to par. Burger was cooked perfectly and fries... More

What can you say about a restaurant inside an Airport? It was okay, maybe a little above average, but certainly better than the other choices inside the Airport in Kahului (OGG). We had a relatively short wait for a flight back to the mainland, and wanted a drink and a bite, so we went to Sammy's. The food was okay... More

We had a long flight and had hoped to eat before getting on it. Not a lot of choice of where to eat at this airport. But this served the purpose. Service was pretty good. Cheeseburger and onion rings were delicious. Drink from bar was weak (was not sure if bartender forgot the vodka, frankly). But it was what we... More

The service here was horrible. We had to flag the waitress down after 20 minutes with empty drinks. The food was mediocre. We again had to hunt for the waitress to pay our bill after we had been finished eating for 30 minutes. It would not have been so bad if there had been drinks coming or plates cleared. The... More
