Do you reallly love hamburgers? Then Johnies is your place. No view or ambience. Located in the basement of a building at the entrance to the Kaanapali resort, this place is mostly frequented by locales. Thats because it has great burgers at reasonable prices. Oh and good fries too!! For more info on other restaurants in Hawaii go to our website.

OK..this place is like a weird time warp explosion into a 1970s ice cream parlor with ridiculous fake stained glass and brass and americana crap. To their credit, they had pretty decent music and a good crowd started to form, but the fun was RIDICULOUSLY impeded by their stupid rules and stupid enforcement of them. You could order at the bar, but you could not bob your head or make any dance like moves at the bar...repeatedly the big stupid bouncer came over and rudely told us NO DANCING. OK...so we went to the dance floor and the BIG STUPID BOUNCER told us NO drinks on the dance floor. So here's the idiotic catch 22. You can drink but not dance or you can dance but not drink. Just a drag and buzz kill for a great group of guys and girls just having fun.
Then to top it all off, a friend ( the most mild mannered guy you'll ever meet) in our group was apparently standing too close to the service area of the bar, and was rudely told off. He moved and made a face to another friend like...'what a jerk' So they kicked him...and consequently all of us out.
Well we were just having fun so yeah they kicked us out, so screw 'em we congo lined all the way out of the party and into waiting taxi's where we went to Moose MacGillicudy;s which was less 'fashionable' but a GREAT party. I mean they really turned it on for our group...and we had a blast and dropped tons of money on them. They deserved it. Spats sucked...I mean attitidue in a converted freakin' ice cream parlor? I don't think so!
Dress Code: It's Maui dude. But still they hassled us because some of our crew had flip flops. We had to go through all kinds of hoops.

You definately need a car because you will want to take the road to Hana ~ but believe the rental places when they say you want to upgrade just a bit. The itty bitty economy car without power steering will just not do. Not necessary or practical to get a large truck or SUV either as half the places you go are only big enough for a larger car. Go with a midsize -- you'll be happy you did. We rented a Malibu while we were there. Took that car through some places it should not have been able to go, and it did just fine!

One thing I did notice is that the drop off on the beach is deep....you can be wading in water at your knee deep, and in a step you can be over your waist. Great if you love the water, but watch and warn the little ones who cant swim well.

It's free and it's very captivating - the Ka'anapali Historical Trail & Legends Tour. Offered every Tuesday morning in Ka'anapali Beach Resort and led by a resort concierge who was born and raised on Maui, this historical walking tour is well worth the time and lots of fun. You hear stories of ancient Hawaiian chiefs, warrior battles, legends of demi-gods, and the good 'ole Plantation days. Learn chants and Hawaiian greetings and talk story with your guide. There are 10 site monuments/tour stops. It starts on the Ka'anapali Trolley and finishes with a beach walk.
