Thanks for an amazing experience ! The food, setting,service , all beyond ones imagination . You must go and have the fish, or the short rib beef. All 4 $ worth it! And take time and enjoy the beach and take great memorable pictures!

We had the mahi mahi rolls as an appetizer and they were good. We ordered a pina cola and I seriously say there was NO alcohol - definitely no alcohol (so if you must go there ask for the rum on the side so you know you get it) at just under $20 a drink. We ordered swordfish. It was... More

Amazing place plain and simple. We're not even fans of seafood and thus blew us away. Desert was incredible also. The venue looks great, has a good vibe and excellent service from the staff. If your in Maui you must go here!

Worth the drive from Kaanapali! The family and I went and got our fish on! The setting is incredible but to truest enjoy it embody will want to get there early so you can get the ocean views in while you dine. Like all higher end restaurants the menu is pricy but food was great and the service equaled it!

We made reservations to celebrate our 40th Anniversary at Mama's. We got there early for our reservation so we went are the grounds which are beautiful with the ocean and palm trees. As we were shown to our table the atmosphere was terrific. When we reached our table, which overlooked the ocean, there was a card on the table wishing... More

After stopping and eating at this restaurant my wife and I found out the story behind it and it was as, if not more, amazing as the food. If you only go to one restaurant while on Maui, this has to be the one and only choice to make. This place has it all! Amazing food and view. Great staff... More

Make a reservation in advance. We went for lunch and got a great table (I think we lucked out - prob a good idea to request a window table with a view of the ocean). My husband is a pescatarian (vegetarian that eats fish) and I am a strict vegetarian (tho not a vegan), so when in Hawaii, we're eating... More

You can't get any more authentic Hawaiian meal and atmosphere than this! They really try to preserve the Hawaiian food and culture hear. The owner (who has been around awhile) approves the final ever changing menu by 10AM everyday depending on the catches of the day. If a fresh caught fish comes in late...it then becomes the daily special because... More

This was our first time at Mama's. Everyone had told us how wonderful it is, and that we must visit it. We did, for dinner re our wedding anniversary, and it was even better than expected. We were given a really good table, they made a special fuss of us re our anniversary (a custom congratulations card and an orchid... More

Amazing dinner at Mamas Fish House. Wonderful view , great staff and amazing food . We had the Ahi Tuna , Mahimahi prawn wonton and fish collar . They do not allow men to wear sleeveless shirts. They have loaners but better to come prepared.

Thank Kevin W
