Here internationally acclaimed Chef Bev Gannon and her husband, Joe Gannon, a veteran of the Hollywood showbiz industry, create their masterpieces. The hearty staples of this popular Wailea eatery include excellent mashed potatoes, lobster, fresh fish, and filet mignon, but the meatloaf seems to surpass them all. The Tuscan white-bean soup is superb, and the tenderloin, with roasted portobellos, mashed potatoes with whole garlic, and a pinot noir demi-glace, is great. Daily specials could be grilled ahi with white-truffle Yukon gold mashed potatoes or sautéed mahimahi with shrimp bisque and sautéed spinach.

Dessert at Joe's is a must. If chocolate cake is on the menu, you should definitely try it.

Other choices include sashimi trio, ahi carpaccio, noodle dishes, lobster, Asian shrimp cakes, and sauces that surprise, in creative combinations such as ginger-lime chile butter and cilantro pesto. If you prefer something simpler, there are shrimp tempura, noodles, and wok-tossed upcountry vegetables. Those who love French cuisine will appreciate the decadent foie gras nigiri sushi.

Don’t miss such desserts as deep-fried tempura ice cream with chocolate sauce and the Granny Smith apple tart with vanilla ice cream and homemade caramel sauce which are worth the calories.
