Hali'imaile General Store

The Hali’imaile General Store building is a piece of Hawaiian history, dating back to the 1920s, and while the restaurant opened in 1988, it holds onto the original name and old-timey exterior. Like many places in Hawaii, the menu is a bit all over the place, but our favorite dishes are Bev’s Famous Crab Pizza and the crispy roast half-duck. The restaurant is in Makawao, a historically “paniolo” (cowboy) town that’s now a small artist community full of unique shops and boutiques, so come here for lunch or dinner after an afternoon spent buying blown-glass whale tails and diagramming out how you’ll fit them into your suitcase.
