Beach Bums in the Harbor Shops

Beach Bums bills itself as “Maui’s Best BBQ.”  It is downstairs in the Harbor Shops shopping center adjacent to the aquarium, and across from Maalaea Harbor, at 300 Maalaea Road.  Phone 808-243-2286.

Beach Bums is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, seven days per week.  They feature barbecue ribs, chicken, ham, brisket, and pulled pork, but they also have fish, prime rib, sandwiches, salads, appetizers, side dishes, desserts, kids meals, and complete breakfasts.  Portions are large and prices are lower than most Maui restaurants.  The whole restaurant is open-air, and the tables along the outside edge have a nice view of the boats in the harbor.  It has a loud sports bar atmosphere.

This is a convenient place for any meal when you are passing through Maui’s central valley on your way between your hotel or condo and the sights of central Maui or upcountry, if you don’t mind the noise and the sports on TV.
