Lahaina Grill - is it all that?

We are leaving next week for Maui. This will be our third trip to Maui and we have not eaten the Lahaina Grill on our previous trips. The menu looks great but naturally does not include prices. How much could we expect to spend for 2 adults with a drink or two each (no bottles of wine), 2 apps, 2 entrees, and a dessert or two? Our kids, ages 13 and 11 will be along and will have to go with us. Are kids "welcome" there? Would it be frowned on there if we only had drinks and appetizers? Are reservations necessary? Thanks!

    I don't know if anyone will actually frown on it if you have only drinks and appetizers -- but the restaurant's point of view is that it is in the business of selling food, and real estate is precious. If a table that could be used by people having a full dinner is used by those who are not, the restaurant is not making money.

      interesting. not Lahaina Grill in particular, but I often find I end up spending more if I have drinks and a selection of appetizers.
