Makawao Steak House

“located in historic Makawao town”

3612 Baldwin Avenue, Makawao, Hawaii 96768
Open Tuesday-Sunday 5:00pm-9:00pm
Have pupu and drinks in our lounge starting at 4:30 every night!

Enjoy the beautiful drive upcountry to cooler weather and spectacular views.

Upcountry Maui is also known as “Paniolo” country. Paniolo translated means cowboy in Hawaiian and you’ll feel that once you enter historic Makawao town. Don’t be surprised to see a true Paniolo riding horseback through town!

Once you settle down after perusing the quaint shops and boutiques that Makawao has to offer, join us at the Steak House for a hand crafted cocktail, a trip to the salad bar and a perfectly prepared steak. Don’t think we forgot you non-carnivores! In addition to our freshly prepared salad bar with house-made dressings we offer fresh fish specials, vegetarian options as well as a half Jidori chicken!

Makawao Steak House has been around for over 40 years and Café O’Lei Restaurants was proud to take over this tradition back in 2012. We’ve kept the same steak house feel that everyone remembers from their childhood but have updated the menu a bit to add on a little of the Café O’Lei spirit!

Local favorites: Onion Soup en Croute, Fried Oysters, Prime Rib, Hawaii Rancher’s New York Steak, Jidori Chicken, Café O’Lei Crunch for dessert!

Let us take care of your next special event! We have a private dining room available for up to 35 guests.
