3 Things to Share with Your Maui Destination Wedding Caterer

The mood established through the style of your destination wedding will be what your guests enjoy and remember most about your Maui destination wedding. Olowalu Plantation House Wedding with a bamboo chuppa catered by CJs Maui Catering )aka (comfort Zone)Of course they’ll remember the endearing vows you exchange at your wedding ceremony and the expressions on your faces when you say ‘I do’ or kiss each other for the first time as newlyweds! The guests who travel to your destination wedding will remember the great time shared together before and after your special day in paradise! What Maui destination wedding memory do you want to create?

  • Style – To plan a wedding and wedding reception you and your guests will enjoy and remember forever, decide if your destination wedding will be casual or formal. Should traditional vows be exchanged during the wedding ceremony? Will the couple getting married wear formal wedding dress and tuxedo or casual elegant island attire? Share any important colors and wedding party color theme for your wedding and wedding reception. Many Maui wedding couples opt for a tropical wedding ceremony with a traditional vow exchange followed by a casual beach wedding reception. Do you want the style of your wedding reception to be casual, formal or a combination of both? Will your catered reception service include a sit down multi course gourmet dinner personally served to you and your wedding guests or simple passed pupus (Hawaiian hors d’oeuvres)? You’ve probably been dreaming and planning your wedding for a long time. I want to create the overall catering services matching the vision and style of your dream Maui destination wedding!
  • Type of Food – You don’t need to know exactly what you want served down to every course of the wedding reception menu! However, sharing ideas about the foods you like and style of foods you enjoy is helpful toward our melding your ideas with our local knowledge to create your dream wedding reception menu. Think about the type of food or type of restaurant you dine at when you celebrate a special occasion at home. Knowing the style of dining you enjoy will help customize the wedding reception menus and set the theme for your wedding reception. Let your caterer know if a specific ethnic or nationality should be represented in the menu or if guests require special dietary considerations. Would a casual self-service buffet be an affordable catering option? Would you and your guests enjoy a pre-wedding arrival beachMaui beach wedding reception with a catered beach barbecue dinner. barbecue welcome reception more than a traditional rehearsal dinner? Would a seafood feast be perfect for your wedding reception? Or maybe a catered Polynesian luau is what you have in mind for your Maui beach wedding reception.
  • Budget – Know your wedding reception budget. Inform the caterer what your wedding budget is. Regardless of budget, large or small, we’ll work with you to customize and match your wedding vision while staying within your wedding budget. Your budget may be per person or a total for the wedding reception. Either way, sharing your budget with your Maui caterer will let us break it down to ensure we are creating the perfect wedding reception menu matching your budget, tastes and style! Like most caterers on Maui, our Maui catering menus are priced per person. Flat fees for other catering services with incidentals or wedding equipment such as bamboo chuppa, china, a dance floor, entertainment, tents or other upgrades are available. Your overall budget and the number of guests attending your destination wedding will help decide if a traditional sit down multi course gourmet dinner with plated dining and staff service, an elegant self-service wedding buffet, elaborate food stations with courses themed or paired to the food style and individually cooked for each guest, a passed pupu menu or simple cocktail reception is right for your destination wedding reception Maui style!

CJ’s Kaanapali Diner Review

My daughter and I visited Maui a couple of weeks ago and came to your restaurant 3 times. I just wanted to thank you for your willingness to meet our gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free requirements. We loved being able to eat out safely and wish we had a CJ’s at home! I just wrote you a stellar review on Trip Advisor. Hope you have a wonderful rest of the summer!

CJ’s Maui Restaurant Review

Wonderful for a Sunday Brunch since you can order breakfast until 11:00am! Had a ‘custom’ 3 ingredient omelette (I chose mushrooms, feta and spinach) with nicely crunchy on the outside and soft inside home potatoes, yummy. Hubby had the pancakes with fresh fruit! These are light fluffy slightly sweet batter pancakes, not those heavy bland ones (OK I admit it, I had to have a few bites of his breakfast…) Service was fast and friendly :0). The menu is EXTENSIVE, we live here and love it!

CJ’s Deli and Diner Maui Restaurant Review

Fact: CJ’s Maui onion soup will melt your face off it’s so good. Best I’ve ever had. It gets 20 stars.
Alas, it’s not on the menu every day… But when my fiancee and I went this past summer and were lucky to meet Chef CJ in person and mentioned that we had been thinking about the onion soup since the last time we visited two years earlier, he was kind enough to put it on the next day’s menu. We went back the following day and ordered it, and it was amazing, just as we had remembered. Another fact: the onion soup at CJ’s is better than the onion soup at Mama’s Fish House (and at like 1/4th of the price). Really. It’s that good. Part of me wants to reverse engineer CJ’s onion soup recipe, quit my job, and make millions selling onion soup to the mainland masses! (or: CJ, wanna make a deal?)
I think that the loco moco gravy is made from the same goodness. So that’s great too. The potato salad is tasty as well.
The to-go lunch plate is respectable.

Maui Chef CJ Prepares Mushroom Soup for Kaanapali Restaurant Guest

On a previous visit to Maui, I had the most delicious mushroom soup at CJ’s Deli and Diner in Kaanapali. When I arrived in Maui this week, I emailed the restaurant and asked what day they might have the soup. The owner and chef, Christian Jorgensen (CJ), promptly replied even though he was on vacation in Vegas. He gave me a number to call to check on the soup of the day. Then when he returned to Maui on Friday, he emailed me to let me know he would have the soup for me on Saturday. When I got there, he was so friendly and the soup was even more scrumptious than I had remembered. I really appreciated how valued he made me feel as a customer.

Good Morning, My wife and I spent last week in Maui. Your early bird special was the best. After we found you, we ate breakfast there every morning. You had two regular coffees that we just loved.

CJ’s Maui Restaurant Customer Comments on CJ’s Private Luau in her Blog

Aloha, Just wanted to let you know that this post was up last Friday and it will be included (linked) with all of our Hawaii properties. Thank you both for excellent service. You made our trip to Maui very memorable! Feel free to comment on the post. It’s always good to have additional information and your input.

Aloha, We were in to see you many times during our stay last month in Ka’anapali, couple of things for you:
Need to order some more of your CJ’s roasted Kona Coffee. I see it’s not yet on your website, only the Maui Coffee Co. stuff. We ran out last weekend and are having withdrawls, please help!! Need 2 bags urgently!!
Secondly, your claim about having the best corned beef hash on the island. I think you’ve understated this because it’s the best I’ve had any where in the world! And that covers a lot of ground as I’ve been to every continent multiple times. Just the best anywhere, period!! Don’t suppose you would have that for delivery to Indiana would you? Maybe by the pound(s)?
Great people and even better food, Mahalo CJ’s. Seriously though, please let me know about that coffee. How do we get some ordered and shipped to Indiana?

​CJ’s Deli & Diner Rocks! Been here several times while visiting Maui – each time we tried different meals and each time we LOVED the food, service and atmosphere. Only suggestion would be to provide regular dinner napkins along with this paper type – because we’re messy!

Aloha and Mahalo from Detroit
