Three’s Bar & Grill Plans to ReopenNovember 29, 2016, 10:39 PM HST · Updated November 29, 10:39 PM 0 Comments
Just a little over one month since a kitchen fire forced the doors to close, Three’s Bar & Grill has announced it will reopen Wednesday, Nov. 30 at 5 p.m. for dinner service, putting around 70 residents back to work.
An early-morning fire on Sunday, Oct. 23 destroyed part of the kitchen. Local contractors put in long hours to get the building back in working order, with co-owners Jaron Blosser, Cody Christopher and Travis Morrin providing hands-on help wherever possible. They were even able to keep some restaurant employees on the payroll, as they assisted with rebuilding efforts.
“We are super grateful to be back in business. It’s important to us and to our employees,” says Travis Morrin on behalf of the owners. “We want to send a special thanks to everyone who has been a part of the process, including: our faithful employees, Jeff and Evelyn of MW Group, all of the County of Maui departments, MFD for saving our restaurant, neighbor restaurants for lending a helping hand, Bargreen Ellingson for expediting replacement equipment, and all of our contractors for working around the clock to get us open — RVS Construction, Da Kyhn Services, Integrity Air, Wiki Wiki Electric, Remco, Maui Fire and Flood, and CDF Engineering. We also want to thank all of our vendors and insurance carriers for working with us through this challenging time. It’s time to open! Let’s cook!”
Customers may also notice some enhancements to Three’s, including new tile, paint, a custom mural in the dining room, and even a revamped menu.
After its initial dinner debut, Three’s will be back open for regular business hours, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturday/Sunday, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. The restaurant is located in Kīhei’s Kalama Village at 1945 South Kīhei Road. Three’s invites diners to experience breakfast, lunch and dinner, featuring three cuisines — Hawaiian, Southwestern and Pacific Rim — using quality, locally-sourced ingredients.

The restaurant features a casual, island-style vibe, with a surf lounge, sushi bar, dining area and outdoor lanai. Diners can come enjoy the raw bar (11 a.m. to close), live music daily, and Three’s award-winning happy hour from 3 to 6 and 9 to 10 p.m. The owners are also happy to offer kama’āina rates and their community giveback program to benefit local nonprofits and causes.
Morrin, Christopher and Blosser also opened farm-to-table eatery Fork & Salad in Kīhei over the summer.
Three’s is planning a Grand Reopening party within the next few weeks, as a big “Mahalo” to the Maui community for its support over the past month.
