Lahaina Coolers is a nice place with a wide selction of food and friendly service. It was one of the few open restaurants when hurricane Iselle was approaching. We liked it and went back two days in a row.

Food was very good, casual fare. Open air seating on patio and even restaurant itself is pretty open, so don't expect any A/C. Bar is small, but can get loud...but place never seems to be terribly busy. The pizza's and salads are great.

Lahaina Cooler is about 2 1/2 blocks off Front Street amid some shops, professional offices and more food choices. While lacking a waterfront view, or any real view at all, there is a great, homey atmosphere. There are definitely more locals here than some of...More

We've been going for years. Always good and a great change from expensive hotel breakfasts. We love their fried rice, huevos rancheros, and great piña coladas. Who knew they were perfect for a breakfast drink?

When are you going to get rid of that rude waiting everyone is complaining about? I really like this restaurant but I'm reluctant to return with such poor reviews on the service. Is that hard to find good good help on Maui?
