Lunch at the Award-Winning Hali'imaile General Store

Many years ago Bev & Joe Gannon opened their restaurant in a 1929 vintage general store set flat dab in the middle of a pineapple plantation. This restaurant, The Hali'imaile General Store, quickly became a huge success, without a doubt due to the delicious cuisine of Chef Bev Gannon and the charming atmosphere of this old building.

Across the street there still is an old stable, and next to the restaurant sits a bus barn. The parking lot is usually packed, but there is usually plenty of extra parking across the street. If you come for lunch, you may have to wait outside on a bench as they don't take reservations for lunch, only for dinner The ambience inside is colorful, noisy, and charming.

Three of us began our lunch today with freshly made Mango Margaritas and a small crab pizza appetizer. Our main courses were an ahi wrap, a smoked turkey cheddar cheese sandwich with fries, and a macadamia -crusted fresh mahimahi fish dish. Desert was an upside down pineapple cake with ice cream. Oof! Off for a siesta....

I like your photographs a lot. An interesting post.

To answer your question about the truck wheels picture, Kuanyin, it was my Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT camera that I use all the time.

Mangos are now growing in Mazatlan, and I wonder if I'll find mango margaritas here, too. Great food shots.

Kala, this place is pricey! Bring a credit card or plenty of cash. It is considered one of Maui's fine dining restaurants.
