Nestled into the Maui Tropical Plantation in Waikapū, The Mill House epitomizes the farm-to-table concept—and then some. Presenting inventive dishes inspired by the plantation’s crops and the island’s highest-quality organic produce and proteins, this beautiful, open-air venue peers out upon the West Maui Mountains—and is frequently deemed one of the most romantic restaurants on the island.
Executive Chef Jeff Scheer—who took home ‘Aipono’s Chef of the Year award in 2015—first looks to the bounty outside his kitchen to create dazzling, one-of-a-kind dishes (and earning The Mill House the Gold ‘Aipono award for the island’s Most Innovative Menu). Portions range in size from bites to mains—and span the spectrum from crisp greens to charcuterie plates—while desserts feature more of the on-site farms’ scrumptious harvest, such as coconut cake and sorbet with pineapple compote and meringue.
Sleek but casual—and sultry but fun—The Mill House hits the spot in more ways than one. Its horseshoe bar is surrounded by fascinating memorabilia from the island’s sugarcane era, while open-air and al fresco seating hammers home the warmth of the aloha spirit. With a duck pond just outside its doors—and bright, tropical flowers in abundance—the atmosphere is at once lively and romantic, rendering The Mill House an excellent spot for both family feasts and tête-à-têtes.

One of the beauties of dining at The Milll House is the exceptional service. Servers and bartenders are eager to share what’s thriving at the plantation’s farms and across the island, whether it’s fresh corn served with Calabrian chili butter or a Shrub Royale cocktail accented with lemon, guava, and dragonfruit. Always attentive—and eminently knowledgeable—The Mill House’s servers can help you and your crew decide on the right portions—and flavors—for a satisfying experience.
Craft cocktails get an inimitable twist at The Mill House, where cold-pressed fresh sugarcane and produce-at-their-peak are used to create miracles. Their Hana Sunrise—with silver tequila, green papaya, pineapple, and mint—is one of our faves, while their spin on the Mai Tai—with orange curacao, macadamia nut orgeat, and lime—is downright magnificent. Their wine list draws from some of the top vino regions in the world, and their beer menu—featuring national and locally-crafted brews—is reason alone to visit. Zero-proof swills are just as stellar, from Maui Brewing Company’s much-loved Island Rootbeer to Plantation Sweet Tea and strawberry-lilikoi soda.
In short? With its superb food, welcoming vibe, excellent drinks, and terrific views, The Mill House makes clear, time and again, why it was named one of the best Maui restaurants by Honolulu and Maui No Ka Oi Magazine.

Ke'anae Taro House by @tourmaui - The Ke’anae Peninsula was created from an immense lava flow originating from #HaleakalaCrater. Centuries ago Hawaiians brought soil down, by hand, from the mountains to create the #KeanaePeninsula. Their amazing display of physical labor is a testament to how revered this land is in Hawaiian culture. #maui #hawaii
