OPEN AND PLEASANT SETTING, TASTY FOOD PRESENTATIONS

We dined at lunchtime and enjoyed an excellent meal of crab and avocado salads with a wonderful brut rose. Service with charm.

Went here two days in a row. Sat at the bar and the bartender was GREAT !! we had the Poke tacos for an appetizer - supper fresh !! she recommended a fish Ruben sandwich for lunch. Not usually a Rueben fan however we went back the second day JUST for this sandwich !! It was the best fish sandwich... More

Great decor. We both ordered the macadamia nut encrusted snapper. Wise choice. Large portion extremely tasty. Outstanding service by Tyler. Jason took care to assure we were treated with proper service. Really nice friendly establishment. Don't miss it if in the area.

This is an amazing fine dining food place by Tommy Bahama's, especially in the Big Island. It's on the most perfect location in Mauna Lani and Waikoloa. After a good stroll around this beautiful outdoor mall and shopping, a stop and dinner at this restaurant certainly can set the mood for the evening. The food is simply amazing with great... More

We were staying at the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel for our anniversary and decided to have lunch here. We enjoyed everything about this restaurant. The service was great! We liked the fact that the manager walked around and visited every table. Our waiter, Mikala, was not only friendly, but he was attentive to all of the tables he was waiting... More

Family (grandparents, children & grandchildren) loves Hawaii, especially the Big Island. We always go out for 1 or 2 special dinners and this is the second year we went to Tommy Bahama Restaurant Bar and Grill upon request of our 11-year old granddaughter. The atmosphere is great and suitable for all parties (date, group or family). Fish was fresh, steak... More

It was my first time eating at Tommy Bahama Café just a few days ago. This restaurant is one of my new favorites and I'll definitely be coming here again! I came here for dinner with my husband and parents in law. As soon as I entered into the door, I automatically noticed the beautiful interior design, decorations, live music... More

If your a foody person then this isn't the place for you, I would compare it to a high end Hawaiian version of the Olive Garden. The Happy hour was weak with a short list of sub par appetizers and weak beer selections. The fish taco should be avoided under all circumstances (we should have expected when we asked the... More

Our family had dinner here last night and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The food was excellent, but the service surpassed our expectations. Both managers stopped to talk to us at our table and checked on us several times which was great, but our server (Henry) was the highlight of the experience. His positive attitude, knowledge of food and drinks offered,... More

Every other year we come to the Big Island and go out for a nice family meal after we get family pictures taken. We have always gone to Roy's but decided to change things up after my husband and I had a casual dinner here earlier in the week. We had a group of 17 people and sat out on... More
