Signature burgers include the Ali’i (King of all Burgers) made with local Maui grass-fed beef, hamakua mushrooms, Swiss cheese and a smoky chipotle aioli.  Another favorite is the Moloka’i Runner with seared local Mahi Mahi, citrus caper tartar sauce, Kula greens and pickled onions.  Vegetarians will enjoy the signature Bikini Burger with black bean and beet root patty, smoked tofu and a jicama sweet chili slaw.  All burgers are served with sweet potato fries, house-made ketchup and Chef April’s famous hot sauce made with ingredients from the hotel’s onsite organic, garden.

The imaginative larger-than-life shakes are the perfect accompaniment to the selection of signature sandwiches.  Refreshing favorites include the Hula Girl with pineapple, coconut and chocolate along with the Kula Crunch crafted with fresh strawberries and macadamia nut cookies. New to the menu is also an adult root beer made with Zaya 12-year Reserve Rum, bound in root beer and served on the rocks with vanilla bean ice cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup.
