Good food, great service

Stopped for dinner after an afternoon at Hapuna Beach. Bread was delicious and steaming hot. Food was good but not great. View was spectacular as sun was setting. Good music.

We ate there for lunch before and enjoyed it. However, the menu has changed, and not for the better. The food now seems generic and overpriced. There were few vegetarian options, unless you want salad... they offered a marinated portobello taco as a special, but it was not available. The fish sandwich was nothing special. When we made our views... More

Some of the best beef we've ever had, bar none. All of their offerings are absolutely top notch - desserts as well as main courses! Service is what you'd expect in a fine dining establishment - knowledgeable and professional wait staff, quietly and efficiently providing food and beverage service. Live music adds to the ambiance. It's always a pleasure to... More

My family and I have been coming to Tommy Bahama for years and we can't help but go at least twice every trip, even if it's a little pricey. The meals are not your typical American size and it may be a bit overpriced, but the deserts more than make up for it. The cocktails are great and I would... More

I have many food sensitivities so when we dine out I am very careful with my selection. I ordered an Ahi Burger at this restaurant yesterday. What the menu did not state was that it was highly seasoned, ground ahi. I told our server that I had food allergies/sensitivities, asked that the garlic Ali be left off, and waited to... More

Found this place via our concierge... Was worried since it is part of the Tommy Bahama "chain", but it was very nice. Beautiful island decor; open air balcony; delicious, fresh-baked bread with a cinnamon/nutmeg butter... I had the shrimp Cobb salad and it was wonderful. Had to ask server about it, as it was only on their lunch menu (hint:... More

we stayed for a week, and tried many of the restaurants, this was definitely the stand out. Service was outstanding and food was fresh and really quick out of the kitchen. The view is outstanding as well. The nutmeg cinnamon butter is a definite must try. I would recommend a reservation if you want to eat during peak times.

We went to this restaurant twice and enjoyed it both times. The restaurant is above their large Tommy Bahama's store, and is top notch as you'd expect anything Tommy Bahama would be. Our first visit was for lunch. We had the Ahi Tuna Tacos appetizer and the Crispy Fish Sandwich. The portions are good sized. The tacos were made with... More

We arrived just as they opened for lunch. Had a Mai Tai that was delicious - the rum smooth as silk. Wish I had one right now. I had their Coconut Shrimp -crispy not greasy - the Asian slaw that came with it was very yummy. My husband had the scallop sliders and he thought they were good - they... More
