Concierge.com's insider take:
Surprisingly, visitors to Lanai are likely to find the best meal of their trip at this unpretentious restaurant instead of one of the gilded Four Seasons resorts. While not quite casual, the Grille (which replaced the longstanding Henry Clay's Rotisserie in September 2008) is bright and welcoming, with lots of blond wood, sunny yellow walls, and the smell of home cooking. Maui's famed chef Beverly Gannon oversees the menu of tasty, well-prepared staples such as filet mignon, macadamia nut–crusted mahi mahi, and ahi poke. Prices are moderate (entrées average $28), although depending on what bottle you pick from the full wine list, it could turn into a pricey evening. Call a few weeks in advance for reservations in high season, and beware the delicious "Lanai Tai" cocktails—two will send you off to dreamland before you know it.
Open Wednesdays through Sundays 5 to 9 pm.
