Having the desire for something new while on Maui, I decided to head up the foothills of Haleakala and have lunch at Kula Lodge (3.5 stars on Yelp).
While very pretty and away from the beaches that Maui is famous for, I found myself encouraged the beautiful view, al fresco dining, and outside Keawe wood burning pizza oven.

Unfortunately, I became discouraged the exorbitant prices and sub-par food. Leaving my gold bars at home, I kept it on the lower end (for Kula Lodge) and ordered a French Dip Sandwich for a horse-choking $22!. I was further disappointed with the presence of cold roast beef, dry hoagie bun, and room temperature au jus.

Upon reflection, the high price and 3.5 stars is mostly due to the view. Taking the food on its own merit I can only give Kula Lodge 2 stars, which is too bad, because it is a really lovely spot for lunch.
Thanks for playing.
