Really good affordable breakfast menu and the service is pretty quick. Try the shrimp omelette. It was also enjoyable to sit outside. There was about a 15 minute wait to get in. No reservations allowed.

We go to Maui every year (except 2020 due to Covid) and one of our favorite things to do is snorkel in the early morning at Kapalua Bay and then head down to Lahaina to have breakfast at Down The Hatch. DTH's breakfasts are wonderful and filling (lvoe the ahi benedict, huevos rancheros and spinch-avocado benny).. but this year, we got to Lahaina too late for breakfast (ends at 10:30 am) so we had an early lunch instead. We shared Fish N Fries and Crispy Fish Tacos. The Fish N Fries satisfied our craving but the Fish Tacos were to die for: piece of fish (crispy or grilled-we opted for crispy)) on a bed of cabbage and cheese, and topped with minced mango and lava lava sauce along with optional slices of avocado. We went back two days later and both of us ordered the fish tacos. If you time your meal just right, you can enjoy a Happy Hour Adult Shave Ice (begins at 2 pm) at the Breakwall Shave Ice Company which is part of Down The Hatch.

I had done a ton of research here on TA and other sites, and found this restaurant and put it on our list. We came for lunch on our day in Lahaina, and nothing disappointed.
The service was friendly, things were fresh, and the food was fabulous.
For an appetizer, we got the Lava Lava Shrimp & the Fried Brussel Sprouts, and both of these were beyond expectations. The Lava Lava Shrimp had a mild heat to it, but not spicy at all. The sprouts were nothing like I've ever had before, and were gone immediately since they were so good!
I got the Lava Lava Chicken Sandwich for my entree, and it was amazing. Perfectly cooked chicken and on Hawaiian sweet bread!
The other person with me got the Fried Mahi Mahi Fish Tacos, and she said they were the best of the best. So delicious and fresh.
We came back for breakfast a couple days later and had another amazing experience! This is a definite must if you are in Maui!

Fish Tacos and breaded shrimp are specialties; they had $5 Coronas for Cinco de Mayo. Order food and pay - they deliver to your table.

Very popular, very busy place. No reservations, so get there early or be prepared to wait. Order and pay at the counter, servers bring your food to your table. Ample portions, tasty waffles and bacon. Friendly workers.
