Solid.

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... read 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.

Stopped by here for a quick bite with 2 friends. There have several great choices. Because we were not hungry, 2 ordered tortilla soup and one the coconut shrimp. The food was tasty. I would definitely go back and try something else. The service was ok...I have had better. I asked the waiter about a particular wine and he said... More

We tend to like their restaurants and products so after shopping at their mall location went upstairs for dinner. They have a nice locally based menu with extensive drink options. We had really attentive service and the food was super good - the only downside is if you sit outside you are looking primarily at cars! Definitely better places to... More

We dropped in on a Sunday evening after going to a wedding at the Mauna Lani and decided to have an impromptu dinner. Having only been here for lunch we thought it was time to give it a shot, as we usually head up here from Kailua town to go to Ruth Chris. The place was busy but we managed... More

Our party of four had the deep fried fish sandwich. It was huge. The fires were just right, Crisp on the outside, and tender inside. The waiter was nice, but had too many tables to serve. But that describes a fish sandwich and fries in ten thousand places across America. IThe prices are high too. That is why only three... More

It's hard to find decent restaurants outside of the pricey resorts in this area. Based on a local's tip, we tried Tommy Bahama and were glad we did. In fact, we went back a second time. The food was consistently delightful, the service was always super-friendly, and the live music was an added treat. Stand-out dishes include the crab bisque... More

Their happy hour here is exactly the same as the one in Maui I went to in December. The only stipulation is that it only at the bar and you have to be there at 4pm to get a seat because there is limited seating. The location is in the Mauna Lani resort in the plaza. Worth going to just... More
