LOCATED IN THE HISTORIC TOWN OF LAHAINA IS A HOT, NEW HAPPY HOUR.
If you’re looking for a fun and flavorful way to spend an evening, visit Fleetwood’s on Front Street for happy hour. Steps from the ocean, in the heart of Lahaina you’ll find legendary drummer Mick Fleetwood’s eponymous restaurant.
Every day between 2-5pm, Fleetwood’s features special prices on food, beer, wine and specialty cocktails. Pull up a seat at the lively bar or settle into one of the soft, leather chairs or couches in the lounge area. Maui Travel Blog Tip: grab a seat on the couch near the far end of the bar…it was handpicked from Mick’s home!
The happy hour menu has something for everyone to enjoy. We heard the oysters on the half shell (at $1 each) are one of the most popular items and being seafood fans, we couldn’t pass up such a great deal! Served over ice, the oysters come with a housemade cocktail sauce and horseradish. Oysters are a natural aphrodisiac so you may want to cool down with one of Fleetwood’s specialty cocktails, The Thomas. Made with Ocean Vodka (an organic Maui made favorite), hand-muddled cucumber, lavender, lime juice and fresh mint this refreshing cocktail is a must!
THE FLEETWOOD SMASH
For those who enjoy the sweeter things in life, The Fleetwood Smash hits the spot. This fizzy cocktail contains fresh Kula strawberries, dry Thai basil (muddled to extract the oils from the leaves), fresh lemon juice, simple syrup and a shot of Ketel One Oranje (orange flavored vodka). Our bartender Jessica topped this brightly colored cocktail with a splash of soda water for effervescence to release all the flavors, gave it a little shake, poured over ice and garnished the glass with a strawberry.
CRAB MAC & CHEESE PLEASE!
Fleetwood’s Executive Chef Eric Morrissette nailed this comfort food favorite. Served in an iron skillet and made with cheddar Béchamel and Old Bay seasoning this hearty dish isn’t short on flavor or crab meat! The texture of the crunchy exterior complemented the creamy interior and the portion was plenty for sharing. After a couple bites, this quickly became one of our favorite versions of mac & cheese on island.
Jessica reached for a bottle of red and said “you’d think rock and roll stars love whiskey and bourbon, but in fact Mick has a passion for wine.” We learned that Mick Fleetwood has his own line of wine and the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon from Santa Barbara we tried was delicious! Maui Travel Blog Tip: enjoy this wine by the glass half priced during happy hour.
This happy hour is a great option for Maui visitors and residents alike. The family friendly atmosphere, delicious cuisine and attentive staff made the experience memorable. In addition to the daily happy hour, Fleetwood’s on Front Street serves dinner from 5-10pm on both levels of the restaurant. Maui Travel Blog Tip: make a reservation on the rooftop dining area around 5:30/6pm and enjoy amazing sunset views! For reservations, visit www.fleetwoodsonfrontst.com or call 808-669-6425.
