Lahaina Grill is a refined yet comfortable restaurant to dine in at Maui found at the historic Lahaina Inn just off Front Street in Lahaina Town. The restaurant features innovative, new American cuisine which utilizes techniques from all over the world which are all perfectly combined with the finest and freshest ingredients that are cultured in the local farms of Maui and its other products.
It was in the 14th of February in 1990 when the 55-seater Lahaina Grill was officially opened to the public. At the moment, it seats about 145 customers which include the chef’s table where eight people can fit. The main cuisine they serve is American and dishes range from $29 to $48. Some of their famous must-try signature dishes are Kona Lobster, Crab Cake, Tequila Shrimp with Firecrackers Rice, Kalua Duck and Triple Berry Pie.
The restaurant is considered to be the prettiest among the many in Maui because of the soft tones used inside accented by the stunning pressed tin ceiling. The table tops are set with fine china, flatware and crystal making the feel even more elegant. Artworks are displayed around the restaurant and most are creations of Maui’s premier colorist, Jan Kasprzycki.
Your taste of food will never be an issue with Lahaina Grill because they have such a wide variety to choose from. You can begin your meal with their sumptuous appetizers and you can select from Carpaccio of Filet Mignon, Baked Escargot, Crisp Fried Maine Lobster Cake or you can go with soups or salads such as Kula Mixed Greens, Bufala Tomato Salad, Baby Romaine Caesar Salad, Maui Onion Soup, Minestrone and Sweet Kula Corn Soup, just to name a few.
If you think you would have difficulty with the starters because there are too many choices, wait until you get to the main courses where they offer different dishes made with beef, veal, pork, lamb, chicken, shrimp, scallops and fish. But not to worry because whatever dish you go for, you will absolutely love everything on the menu.
The much-awaited part of the meal, of course, is the dessert. They have the Triple Berry Pie which is their bestseller among all desserts, as well as Vanilla Bean Crème Brulée, Sugar-free Crème Brulée, Sunken Chocolate Cake and tons more! If you find yourself not knowing what to order after seeing their menu, you can always go for their Chef’s Tasting Menu which offers a selection of their best tasting dishes from appetizers, to salads, to main entrees, which could be either seafood or meat, capped off with a sampler of their special house-made dessert. You will surely never go wrong with that choice.
Lahaina Grill has also been one of the favorite places for group functions which is why they also offer a group wine list and options of three-group menus that you may choose from. They also feature recipes in their restaurant blog if you would want to try serving some of their dishes to your family and loved ones.
