LAWAI, Hawaii -- New owners took over the Beach House restaurant
here, and they have created a new menu, lowered prices and
remodeled the place.
Maui restaurant owners Roy Dunn and Mike Hooks bought the
beachfront restaurant for $4.8 million and spent $250,000
remodeling it, according to Dunn.
The restaurant has been open since the 1950s and was originally
called the Long House, said Dunn. For the past 20 years, it has
been the Beach House restaurant.
"In Lawai, the name is really important to us since it has been
there so long," said Dunn.
"People use it as a landmark to give directions."
The restaurant seats 240 and serves dinner only.
Dunn said a dinner for two will run about $80.
For example, entrees such as seared crusted macadamia nut mahi
mahi with a citrus sauce costs $24.95, and a mint coriander
marinated lamb rack with a goat cheese roasted garlic crust is
priced at $26.95.
Crab cake appetizers are $7.25, and a sea scallop appetizer with
a green papaya salad runs $8.95.
Dunn and Hooks own four restaurants on Maui: the Koho Bar &
Grill in Kahului and Napili; the Plantation House Restaurant in
Kapalua and Sea Watch Restaurant in Wailea.
