Joey’s Kitchen

If you’re looking for affordable gourmet food—and who isn’t—then Joey’s Kitchen is your spot. Here diners will find a scrumptiously diverse menu with Japanese, Portuguese, Filipino and Chinese influences, at some of the best prices in town. No, you won’t get a white cloth table on the beach, but you won’t care. Open daily 8:30am to 2pm and 4pm to 8pm.

Maui Lunch

Leoda's Kitchen and Pie Shop

For farm-fresh and locally sourced ingredients try Leoda’s Kitchen and Pie Shop. Their causal family style dining offers the best of classic and traditional favorites ( what they call glorified grandma comfort food). Try one of their handcrafted sandwiches on freshly baked bread, crunchy fresh salads, and so much more. Open daily from 10 am to 6 pm.


Teddy’s Bigger Burgers

Well, the name says a lot, but doesn’t give the whole story. A “Best Burger on Maui” winner for many years running, Teddy’s delivers big and delicious burgers without the price markup often found on the islands. Open daily 10am to 9pm and is grateful for your business.

Monkeypod Kitchen

Just cause it’s an island doesn’t mean you need a fruity cocktail, and Monkeypod Kitchen is a beer lovers heaven. So there are 36 beers on tap here, and they’re all handcrafted. Of course there are cocktails as well, all of which are made with fresh ingredients (read: less of a hangover.) Open daily 11am to 10pm. Happy hour is daily 3:30pm to 5pm.
