There are definitely WAY MORE scenic restaurants in Hawaii than just those five. How can not one restaurant on Maui not make that list? And of course, what one considers “scenic” is very subjective. Many see a gorgeous view of the pacific ocean as ideal, while others rather be overlooking a beautiful, lush green valley or fresh water lake.
Then there’s the type of “scenic view” of the female form us fellahz love, where I pick Mai Tai’s in Ala Moana for the win! lol

Trying not to think about a storm right now, which Hawaii restaurant(s) would you nominate for most scenic in the U.S.?
