Lunch is great

This restaurant has great lunch and wonderful service. Though the price is high for dinner, lunch is fairly reasonable. Desserts are very good. Try the pineapple creme brulee. All in all the lunch is great and service is outstanding. Would recommend.

We had a lovely meal prior to flying out of Kona and the service was fast and friendly. The server provided the kids with coloring crayons and paper and brought their meals quickly. The pork loin was exceptional and one of the better meals we had on the island.

Location was nice and if you seat outside the view is great. Service was slow, it very touristy and high priced. The coconut shrimp and burger were good.

Tommy Bahamas always has great food. This one is a quick shuttle ride from the Mauna Lani hotel. They had live entertainment which I usually find too loud but it was really nice. I had the macadamia encrusted snapper which was great. My husband had the ribeye and loved it. My daughters had cheeseburger sliders and crab cakes. Everyone was... More

I'd recommend reserving a table on the front patio at sunset. Unfortunately the location of the restaurant isn't the greatest --- it's situated on the upper level in the Mauna Lani Shopping Center and your view is of the parking lot (with golf course beyond). After sunset though, you won't notice the parking lot. The hostesses were fantastic. This restaurant... More

So we are TB regulars in Phoenix by our home. Well, during a trip where service and food seem to be bad wherever we go, Tommy Bahamas comes through just as it always does. Manager Jason Grant comes by to check in on us and make sure everything is top notch and.....it was. The retail store staff were awesome and... More

We have been to this restaurant many, many times and the flavors and offerings are just really good. Some of the best meals we have had on the island (think yum, then kick it up a notch). It is busy, and pricey, and service is good-not incredible. But we keep going back. Some great veg. options and fun desserts.

My wife and I ate at the Tommy Bahama restaurant above the store near the Mauna Lani resort. Food was "good enough" (I had ribs, my wife had seafood) but the tab was high relative to the quality. Not a surprise in Hawaii, and given the relatively few restaurants in the area compared to West Maui, but room for improvement.

I love coming to TB when I come to the islands. The food is great and the drinks were tasty (and masterfully crafted). I had Paul (?) the bartender serve me and he was attentive and friendly. This is not a restaurant that has a view, but it always been full no matter the time of day I come by... More
