Makawao Steak House
Makawao Steak House has been a mainstay in the cowboy town of Makawao for over 25 years. But it CLOSED in March of 2019. This steak house was at 3612 Baldwin Avenue, a couple blocks north of Makawao Avenue. Phone 808-572-8711. Dinner only.
Of course the Makawao Steak House featured steaks. There were six types, and sizes from 8 to 18 ounces. The steaks are ala carte, with an extra charge for vegetables, potatoes, other side dishes, or the salad bar. But there are also other entrees (beef, chicken, fish, etc.) that do come with vegetables or potato or rice. The food here was excellent, and the prices are lower than at comparable Maui restaurants that are closer to the hotels and condos on the beaches.
This restaurant’s last owner, until 2019, was Hoku Nui. They also have the Hoku Nui Farm Stand open Monday-Friday 8AM-5PM, five minutes from the restaurant, at 186 Pi’iholo Road.
Makawao Steak House was formerly owned by the Cafe O’Lei group, which had it from 2012 to 2017. Other restaurants that are still owned and run by Cafe O’Lei are Cafe O’Lei Kihei, Cafe O’Lei at the Dunes, and their fine-dining AmiAmi at the Maui Coast Hotel.
