There are a lot of reasons to love dining in Wailea restaurants. Some have oceanfront seating, some golf course settings, others have excellent the service, but the main thing is the food. Food in Wailea and Makena takes on a different meaning, a relaxed, reward for a day sent on a golf course or a spa or maybe another year of marriage. What ever the reason a diner in Wailea or Makena is special.

Kihei Dining Maui SunsetWailea restaurants are not the cheapest on the island, but with Kihei next door this is not a problem. For a different low priced lunch. Big Beach is right up the street from Makena and at lunch time the roadside dives rock with flavor and price, we even have Maui Dining Coupons for some. So take a break and eat like a local, great food, cheap prices. The 2009 Entertainment Book is Now Available! Order Today and Get Free Shipping! Discounts on dining, hotels, and fun!

Nightly entertainment is readily available in all resorts, but on the low octane level compared to Kihei, Kaanapali or Lahaina.

Wailea Maui is known for its luxurious elegance and world class dining is part of that. Even the restaurants at The Shops Of Wailea are a relaxed step above normal mall eateries.

Our Wailea restaurants reviews will cover some of the top reviewed restaurants and list some of my favorites. (think, road side dives, local foods, and cheese burgers)

Total relaxation, gazing across a perfectly manicured fairway with views to the ocean. After a day on the course or a grand spa treatment come to the Seawatch to enjoy Maui award winning seafood delicacies. Using local ingredients from the waters around Maui Chef Carlos creates clean flavors that are depicted in a style that he calls "coastal cuisine." An exceptional wine list compliments any plate served. Service you deserve along with fair pricing bring customers back year after year. View the Menus

Tommy Bahamas' Tropical Cafe

One of my favorite Wailea restaurants is Tommy Bahamas Tropical cafe in The shops at Wailea. It could be the breeze blowing through the open eating area or maybe the soft island music being played, but I think it was the total package they deliver to you.

Ruth's Chris Steak House

Jaws Fish Tacos Truck

Now I am a simple person at heart so when I see a taco truck I stop and taste it up. Believe me here this is the best fish taco I have had on Maui. Low cost, hot, quick service and didn't need to change clothes before dining. Open air table, next to a road, by a fence. Throw ambiance out the window and get over to Big Beach at lunch and get the best deal in Wailea and Makena.

Cheese Burger Island Style

Located in the Shops at Wailea Cheese Burger Island Style is very much like the other famous Cheese Burger restaurant on Maui (Cheeseburger in Paradise), and they should. Once they were the same but legalities of copyrights wins and the name changes. The good news is the flavors stayed the same. I eat there at least three times when ever I am in Wailea. The menu is large enough to accommodate any taste, any eating preference and any budget. Service is always quick. The view from the open air dining area was once hugely better but someone built a Condo project between the restaurant and the ocean. The view is still great and the food is excellent, see the menu with prices here on their website, Phone: 808-874-8990.
