This is a lively restaurant situated above the Tommy Bahama retail store at the Mauna Lani shops. The space is cool and airy with great outside seating and a sizeable bar area.

It's technically a chain restaurant, but the food is consistently good and well prepared. Quality and fresh ingredients. Our service was wonderful and accommodating. We had a very similar dining experience here exactly a year ago so it is consistent.

We often go to Tommy Bahama's Restaurant as a local eating place when we don't want to prepare a meal at home. The key to this restaurant is a "can do" staff who uniformly makes the effort to get it right and in a timely fashion. Always, we have had excellent meals and we can always count on taking guests...

We were happy to head here after a long day of sightseeing for lunch. Great drinks and food! Bread and butter are amazing here. Our experience was so wonderful that we headed another night here for dinner. Fun atmosphere:)

We decided to come here to celebrate our 26th wedding anniversary. We had booked through Open Table, so I had noted that we would be celebrating in the reservation comments section. When we arrived, the hostess wished us happy anniversary on the way to a perfect sunset viewing spot on the lanai. The crab cakes were a delicious appetizer, along... More

We loved it here! The atmosphere is relaxed but with an upmarket feel. great varied menu and the service was perfect, no complaints at all. We were seated on the Lanai and the views at sunset were gorgeous. I had the parmesan chicken, hubby had the ribs - best he's ever had! The desserts were great too, especially the key... More

Love the location of this restaurant and the service is always good but not liking what seemed like a new menu. Would prefer a selection of local fresh fish but the menu all seems to be resorty type average food now. Great location and the food and service are consistent but for some reason it just seemed average on this... More

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
