First time poster! I got engaged beginning of July and Fiance and I are planning to do a small intimate wedding/elopement with immediate family only, on Maui! I’ve been able to navigate pretty easily vendors, salons, photographers, etc, but I’m getting stumped on restaurants to have our dinner at after the ceremony.
I originally was Mama’s 100%, however, just recently found out they only do reservations for up to 8 people. We have a part of 10 (maybe 11). And they can’t guarantee us our tables will be near each other. Any natives or frequent vacationers have any ideas? Doesn’t have to be on the beach but atmosphere and food being excellent would be appreciated! Also we are getting married at Haiku Mill, hoping to have it within a 25 minute drive of this location.

I attended a Luau at Feast at Lele, and it was so great! Food was delicious!

What about merrimans?
eta – scratch that, they are definitely NOT within 25m!
What about hali’maile general store? Its not as casual as it sounds, and is very close to your venue.

Pacific’O in Lahaina! On the water, delicious farm-to-table cuisine. Loved it!

cheadams01 : I’m not sure about their reservation policy, but you should look at Hali’imaile General Store. The food is AMAZING and it’s very close to your ceremony venue.

We were in Maui 2 years ago and I fell in love!
I have no useful input other than to say Congratulations and I’m jealous of your Maui wedding 😊

Thanks Bee’s for all of the help! We ended up going with our wedding planner’s recomendation @ Lumeria Maui.
Staff has been awesome to work with so far and the grounds are amazing! Can’t wait!

Kula lodge is super cool. It’s about 30 min from the Mill. It’s in up-country and has a gorgeous flower garden. It’s more casual, but definitely super cool.
Three’s bar and grill is probably my favorite place on Maui. It may be a little farther since it’s in Kihei, but it’s fabulous. They also do catering and have a food truck, so it may be worth checking out having them come to you.
