After a day made up of equal parts chasing the kids and protecting the family from wind-blown umbrella javelins at the beach, you’re probably going to want a beer. Maui Brewing Company’s flagship restaurant is a large, open-air, and family-friendly space where you can unwind while your offspring entertain themselves with oversized Jenga and Connect4. This is the largest craft brewery in Hawaii and as dedicated to sourcing local ingredients for their beers as they are for their restaurants. Come here for the daily live music and quality bar food, and to try any of their 35 beers on tap.

Nalu’s South Shore Grill
We’d eat three meals a day at Nalu’s in Kihei, a casual, open-air restaurant that’s family friendly and serves the best Bloody Mary on the island.
South Maui Fish Company
South Maui Fish Company is just a food truck with a couple tables and chair set up around, but it serves some of the best and freshest poke.
Open at 5am, Kihei Caffe is one of the island’s most popular breakfast spots so expect a wait for large portions of pancakes, biscuits, and scrambles.
