Makawao Steak House

With a brick fireplace and a dark wood setting, Makawao Steak House sells a wide variety of steaks from local Maui cattle farms, short ribs, and locally-caught fish. They also have a small salad bar that is somewhat limited in offerings, but consists of locally-grown vegetables and fruit.

Appetizers include an excellent French Onion Soup that comes highly recommended and fried Calamari.  The Makawao Steak House has a large list of side dishes, and I liked the baked potato, mushrooms and beans the best.
