This restaurant fronting Kahului Harbor used to house an upscale chain steak house: Chart House. Now, it doesn’t. While very popular with some locals for their buffet lunch and brunch loaded up with Hawaiian and local dishes, it’s not popular with us. It’s designed for — and perfect for — tourists who want to debark from the nearby cruise ship and then go right back on board without exploring too far.
