Stella Blues serves American comfort food in a fading Grateful Dead-inspired restaurant. The large, noisy rooms, outdoor seating, pool tables, and commodious concrete bar keep its fans coming back, and back, and back. Sadly, the heart seems to have gone out of this formerly fabulous, friendly restaurant. We used to look forward to coconut shrimp […]

Despite our reluctance to eat in a clothing shop chain, we always have a great time at Tommy Bahama’s, and it’s one of our favorite Happy Hour places in South Maui.

The cozy lounge features a big wood-burning fireplace that is necessary in the winter months. You can order the full menu here, and […]
