We enjoyed dinner twice at the restaurant during our stay. The food is tasty, the service good, and the view great. The only drawback was the obnoxious mananger, Jason. My husband ordered a cocktail that he did not like & sent back. Jason came over to our table to tell us that he had personally worked at the bar where... More

We understand that this is a 'chain' but please eat here for the service alone! The food we ordered was amazing (try the chicken lollipops!) and it was one of the only restaurants in Hawaii and really made us feel we were on our honeymoon (hello free chocolate cake!!!!). Service was amazing and prompt.

Went here for lunch. Great food, but a little pricey. Service was attentive, without hovering. Looks like a great place for dinner.

As was with anything Tommy, food and clothes, it wasn't inexpensive. The food was excellent and the ambiance nice. The restaurant is located above the Tommy Bahama's clothing store.

Dinner on a Monday night. This is in the Mani Lani shopping center where we went to see the Hula show. Made reservations for after the show. Atmosphere is a little upscale to justify the prices. Menu had nice variety and food was good. Service was a little off as the waitress seemed to have spent too much time in... More

We go for Happy Hour (4-6) almost every day. It is close to our hotel and the drinks and small plates are outstanding. Best fish tacos I have had and the sliders and pulled pork quesadilla are my wife's favorites.

We've eaten at Tommy Bahamas in several locations. We come back because it's reliable, it's good, the atmosphere is always pleasant and fun. The food is a bit overpriced, but we keep coming back anyway. I had the blackened fish "Rueben" sandwich (you can get it on gluten-free bread), my wife had a seafood salad. The passion iced tea is...

Wonderful service! Had two managers check on us and had a great conversation with one of them. Learned they are opening a TB in Frisco,Texas next year (we live in Dallas). He even gave us a card for a free appetizer when the Frisco restaurant opens. Had the key lime martini and butterscotch pudding. Both were fabulous. Great visit and... More

We twice had lunch here in the same week because it is sooo good! Order the large chicken/mango salad with the tasty meyer lemon vinaigrette and you can't go wrong. The pulled pork /slaw sandwich is also very tasty. The crispy fish sandwich has great light batter and the fries are to die for! They also bring out the best... More
