Coconut’s Fish Cafe opened in 2009 in Maui, Hawaii. Founder and CEO Michael Phillips opened the restaurant to serve great food to friends and neighbors in a casual, affordable setting.
With a family-friendly atmosphere, exceptional food, healthy choices, and a culture of aloha, Coconut’s Fish Cafe quickly became a phenomenon with kama’aina (locals) and tourists alike. In 2013 Coconut’s Fish Cafe opened in Scottsdale and has experienced the same success as our Maui location – success driven by the loyal patronage of the Coconut’s ohana.
In 2014 Coconut’s Fish Cafe actively began franchising with the first franchise opening in Dallas in late 2014. In 2015 the franchise expanded with a second location in the Dallas Metroplex (Plano, TX).
Our menu pays tribute to our Hawaiian roots. In addition to Hawaiian fish (Mahi-Mahi, Ono, and Ahi) our food features the tastes of Maui: mango, wasabi, coconut, pineapple, and ginger. All of our menu items are made from scratch, to-order with the customer’s health and satisfaction in mind.
Since Coconut’s Fish Cafe opened, we have received numerous accolades. In 2013, Zagat awarded us a ’27’ for food, the highest tier reserved for “Extraordinary to Perfection.” Also in 2013, Coconut’s was featured in Travel + Leisure magazine in its list of “Top 100 Places to Eat Like A Local,” CNN’s list of “Top 10 Places to Eat Like a Local,” as well as CNN’s “Top 100 Seafood Restaurants in The World.”
