Maui Brewing Co. on Urbanspoon
First stop after a flight and checking into the hotel...Amy and I looked for a place to grab a cold one. At the pool bar, we tried a great beer and asked where it came from. The bartender educated us about the Maui Brewing Company. We vowed to check it out...both due to it's proximity to the hotel and the quality of beer.
We seated ourselves, as indicated on the signage. Then were promptly ignored by the 2 bar backs and 2 waitresses for a good 10 minutes. I was annoyed by this, but Amy did point out the coolness of the interior (very industrial/brewery vibe). After our initial wait, the server came over and took our order. She did apologize, so I let it go. I ordered a Macadamia Nut Porter that was good. Amy had a Pineapple Wheat Lager that she liked. We also got a salad and some wings.
Amy's salad was okay. My wings were bland. The wing sauce was made with the blonde beer on tap...good concept, but the sauce was really lacking.

I agree with the posts I see on Urbanspoon...go check out the beers and skip the food.

Hali'imaile General Store on Urbanspoon
Amy and I were very excited to check this place out. We had heard nothing but good things about this shop and Bev Gannon is kind of a big deal. We drove about an hour to get to Upcountry and were shocked at how nice/polished this restaurant looks. Inside and out...it definitely looked the part of a James Beard nominated chef's restaurant. The inside even had merchandise for sale like a general store. It was cute.
They even had a vegetarian menu...which normally means that Amy and I are in for a gorge-fest. And after the Hawaiian meals of meat with a side of meat and gravy, we had our hopes waaaaay up there. Amy ordered the Vegetable Slaw Tostadas and the Grape/Brie Quesadilla. I ordered a Sashimi Pizza for starters.
The vegetable slaw tostadas were inedible. It was simply sliced cabbage and carrots on STALE chips with a drizzle of hoisin sauce for decoration. Very dated Asian fusion vibe and it definitely wasn't good.
The grape/brie quesadilla was probably the best item we had. The brie and the grape worked well together and Amy and I both enjoyed it. The amount of cheese was overpowering creating a drastic strength in brie flavor that towered over the grape. In the end, it was a bit one-note with brie flavor.
The sashimi pizza was a hot mess...well, not hot, so more of a cold mess. The thin crust pizza was topped with fresh tuna and dressed with fried onions, a pink mayo sauce, fresh sprouts and masago caviar. For some reason, when combined, the flavored tasted like Chinese "thousand year egg"...otherwise known as Pi Dan. It was just weird. I tried all the pieces individually and it was okay. But when eaten as a pizza...BAM! Pi Dan flavor. I like Pi Dan, but the whole sensation and expectation threw me for such a loop that I could not eat it. (Also, I cannot eat an entire pizzas worth of Thousand Year Egg.)

In the end, Amy and I decided to skip entrees and left. We were disappointed at the meal. But to be fair, the service was great and the restaurant itself was very clean and neat.
