You’ve always wanted to crash a wedding, but the fear of knocking over the cake while hiding from the father-of-the-bride has kept you away. Since Merriman’s doubles as one of Maui’s most popular wedding venues, dinner here might be your best chance. Overlooking Kapalua Bay on Maui’s west side, Merriman’s is perfectly positioned for sunset views and gazing out over the water to seem like you’re contemplating life when really you just can’t decide what to order. They use almost exclusively local ingredients in their farm-to-table dishes, though if you’re not looking to spend quite as much, you can still enjoy the views at their outdoor lounge, The Point, which has daily live music and Happy Hour specials from 3-5pm.
