Wandering Tummy in Maui: LuLu’s Lahaina Surf Club & Grill

LuLu's Lahaina Surf Club & Grill on Urbanspoon

We came across Lulu’s Lahaina Surf Club on the internet while searching for a late-night dining location. Lulu’s is open until 1am and according to their website they have power hour specials Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10pm to closing. Power hour is basically their happy hour (drink specials and food specials). I love happy hour time and that sold me to check out the restaurant.

LuLu’s is located on Honoapiilani Hwy. It is attached to Lahaina Cannery Mall. We walked into the restaurant and basically sat ourselves down. There were no servers or hosts ready to serve us even though the restaurant was dead. Tuesday at 11pm and the place was very quiet. The restaurant was hosting some sort of trivia night for some of their patrons. There were people seated at the bar, and a trivia host on the stage with a mic. It was awkward at times when he tried to joke, but no one laughed.

After sitting for a few minutes a server took notice and greeted us with a menu. We requested for the power hour menu but the server did not seem to know what we were referring to. Apparently they did not have power hour on Tuesdays and it was only on Mondays. I was quite disappointed, because even when I returned to the hotel to check online, the website still says Power Hour on Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Even though the prices were not that dramatically different, the fact that I chose the restaurant based on the power hour menu was disappointing. We could have ate any where else instead, especially since the food was average. Overall, the restaurant was a disappointment to me. I wish I had tried something else instead. 

What’s on the table:

  • Crabby Cakes – 7/10 – it was not bad, but nothing special
  • Loco Moco – 6/10 – I liked Aloha Mixed Grill for this
  • Bo Diddley Squidley – 7/10 – Calamari – meh!

An option for the late-nights in Maui, but if you had another option, I would try that instead. Share some late-night restaurant locations in the comments! Let me know your late-night dining locations!
