Christmas Dining on Maui Made Easy!

Don’t worry, there are several options and you won’t even need to do the cooking for 3 of the 4 Maui Christmas dinner options! Keep reading to find out about the easiest way to enjoying a complete delicious holiday dinner in the privacy of your vacation rental.

  1. Order a Complete Christmas Dinner Feast from Chef CJ – We’ve cooked up an enticing holiday menu for you to enjoy a complete Christmas dinner on Maui WITHOUT doing the shopping and cooking yourself! Our Takeaway Holiday Feast includes everything you need! The Maui Chef’s famous holiday dinner feast includes your choice of Herb Roasted Turkey (dark and white meat), Pineapple Roast Duck, Herb Stuffed Leg of Lamb or Prime Rib for the dinner entree. In addition to a salad, your entrée is accompanied by an assortment of side dishes including a Kula Green Salad with dressing, Dinner Rolls, Homemade Mashed Potatoes & Giblet Gravy, Sauteed Vegetables and Apple Walnut Stuffing. Since no holiday dinner would be complete without a homemade pie for dessert, you’ll need to select either homemade Pumpkin Pie with fresh whipped cream or Apple Mango Pie to finish the Christmas dinner feast with. Prices are only $44 for adults and $18 for Kids. Our Christmas Dinner Feast is available for parties of 4 or more.

  2. Hire a Private Chef to Prepare Dinner on Christmas – Maui chef Jorgensen serving up herb roasted prime rib.A private chef dinner prepared on site by a personal chef is a unique experience and a great way to enjoy a holiday dinner on Maui! However, the biggest problem you’ll likely encounter is finding a chef on Maui that is not already working and able to prepare your holiday dinner. Though we aren’t offering catering services on Christmas day, take a look at our private chef dinner menus or review our DIY holiday party catering packages for ideas.
  3. Christmas Dinner at a Maui Restaurant – Are you ready to join at least fifty of your favorite strangers to enjoy a family holiday dinner together in your favorite Maui restaurant. After serving as the executive chef at several resort hotels around the world and here on Maui, I certainly appreciate what is offered for a holiday dinner at resort restaurants. But, I believe guests appreciate the opportunity to enjoy a relaxed and more personal dinning experience with their family on the holiday even while celebrating Christmas vacationing on Maui in Hawaii. While I have no animosity towards resort restaurants serving a Christmas menu or anyone enjoying a fine dining experience on the holiday, I feel holidays such as Christmas should be spent with those dearest and most important to you. While it is certainly possible to make a few new friends while vacationing, in reality are going to remember the names of all those other people you were toasting with during your Christmas dinner? Save that for New YearsView Santa and his dolphin reindeer decorating Kaanapali Resort when you pick up your holiday feast at CJ's restaurant. instead and enjoy the holidays with a private dinner on Christmas! Use our Holiday Christmas Dinner Takeaway Heat and Eat Feast or consider a private chef to prepare a holiday dinner during your Maui vacation. Though our Kaanapali restaurant, CJ’s Deli & Diner, will be closed on Christmas day so our employees have time to spend enjoying the holiday with their loved ones and friends, let us know if you’d like us to cater a private chef dinner for your family over the holiday period.
  4. Cook The Holiday Dinner Yourself – This has to the least desirable option if you are vacationing and celebrating the holidays on Maui. Not only will you need to buy the seasoning and shop for all the ingredients to prepare a Christmas dinner on Maui, but you’ll also need to do all the cooking in an unfamiliar kitchen or using a beach bbq. Instead of cooking, consider using our Complete Chefs to Go ‘Heat & Eat’ Holiday Feast as an option for Christmas dining in Kaanapali. Everything is included for your family to enjoy a delicious traditional Christmas dinner and the only thing necessary is to heat everything up, set the table and get everyone in from the beach to sit down together for a fantastic Christmas dinner on Maui! We even include homemade pie for dessert!Homemade apple mango pie from CJ's Maui restaurant in the Kaanapali Fairway Shops.

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
