Five Palms Maui

Five palms beach Grill

2960 S Kihei Rd
Kihei, HI

Five Palms Beach Grill sits feet from the sand and looks out on the ocean; they are open for breakfast and lunch and then reopen for dinner, and they do great seafood combinations which have elements of traditional dishes and some fusion dishes.

For breakfast and lunch they have a full menu with everything from omelets to burgers; pricing is moderate with an average price per meal between $10 - $30; in other words, about average for a good sit down restaurant.

Of course, they serve to go as well, and the food is worth it, but who would not want to sit on the beach as you eat dinner; many dishes straight from the ocean. The airy, open air dining room does not disappoint either!
