Cheap(er) eats Maui
I am traveling with family to Lahaina Jan. 18-26. There are some great recommendations on here for fancy dinners, and we will definitely hit a couple of those places. Any ideas for great food that is a bit more casual? I see good reviews for Star Noodle. Would appreciate any other ideas. Thanks!
Are you into eating local food? What about some takeout to keep the cost down? Do you plan on cooking at all?
Look into Local Food, Ululani's, Okazuya & Deli Honokowai, Ono Tacos, Ohana Tacos, the Honokowai Farmers Market, Leoda's Kitchen & Pie Shop, Honolua General Store, and don't forget the various happy hours available at different restaurants.
For the fancy dinners I would make reservation ASAP since you are going in only a few days.

West Maui - cooking & eating on the cheap
Only had happy hour at Duke's from 3-5 daily, which is fun after swimming/snorkeling all day..
Friends have had their breakfast of ahi benedict and said it was good.
Sounds like the condo your considering is well located where you can walk and drink to fun places.
Do you make that NYC to OGG all in one trip or do you stop off in LAX/SAN/SF for a couple of days?
Hawaiian Air flies direct in about 5+ hours from SAN.
That's a long flight..
There isn't much on Maui that is anything other than casual. If you are seeking t-shirt and shorts places - they are everywhere.
You might consider the Gazebo for breakfast, Mala Ocean Tavern for lunch or dinner, and Okazuya for takeout as starters,
Thanks for all the suggestions. They were great, and we had a fantastic trip. I only wish I were still in Maui.
We ate at a good range of places: Merriman's, Star Noodle, Local Foods, The Fish Market Maui, Mama's Fish House, Mala, Honu, Hula Grill. Pretty much everything was delicious.
