Stop by Sammy's at Kahului airport
Next time you land at Maui's Kahului Airport, you'll be able to check out Sammy's Beach Bar & Grill, created by HMSHost Corp. and rock 'n' roller Sammy Hagar.
Lunch and dinner menus greet travelers with classic American fare made with local ingredients.
Among popular dishes are Cabo Wabo ceviche, an ahi tuna burger and crispy pescado mahimahi, an island version of fish and chips.
The restaurant opened on Wednesday and Hagar will dedicate his profits from this restaurant to local community children's charities through the Hagar Family Foundation.
