Had an early dinner here on a lovely night. The atmosphere was great, there was a guy playing Hawaiian music on a guitar that only added to the great atmosphere. Our server, TJ, was fantastic, and was happy to make suggestions from both the food and drink menus. Mr 12 noted that the Cheeseburger Sliders from the kids menu ($9)... More

This used to be our favorite on the island. Not anymore. The quality and quantity of the food has fallen off the cliff. The service seems to have gone with the food. My wife ordered a salad that used to be a meal sized salad but what she got was a few bites of greens. The answer given by the... More

Went to happy hour twice as the prices are incredibly low for Hawaii. $7-8 snacks and drinks are just as cheap as you'll find, and the quality of the food very good! It is a chain restaurant, but really felt a part of Hawaii. At 7 PM, there are often Hawaiian entertainment shows performed and a great accompaniment to the... More

With a gorgeous sunset and impeccable service this place is a great place for a relaxing meal. No pressure to leave so enjoy! The food was delicious, great flavors, though a bit pricey.

Started with the World Famous Coconut Shrimp and one order of the crab bisque. I see why they call it "world famous", it's the fresh coconut and barely there batter and the light crispness that makes it great. The crab bisque I tasted was good, but could have been served warmer. I ordered the Ahi Kale Salad and my companion... More

Obviously I'm leaning you to their outstanding happy hour. Great place to get some appetizers and drink after a day at the beach. Open-air, breezy with a bar that has several televisions tuned to the current sport de jour. Lollipop drumsticks with a jerk seasoning were perfect and the goat cheese with toast tips awesome. At happy hour we were... More

I've been to the restaurant on Maui and now this restaurant on Hawaii. The staff were extremely professional, and catered to our questions and special requests. The ambiance was great- there was a really nice guitarist playing during dinner-time. I love the food- this was our first stop on our trip, and this was one of the best meals we... More

For a chain restaurant the menu and service were good. The location on the resort creates a bit of exclusiveness that you won't find in other Tommy Bahamas locations like Palm Beach. The menu is larger than lots of smaller local restaurants so this is a good choice for families with picky eaters. Chains are obviously good as they take... More

The food was awesome and the service was excellent!!! The views were ok, but the atmosphere made up for it. I already love the clothes and other things Tommy Bahamas sell, but now I am also a huge fan of their restaurant too!!

This was our first place to eat and drink at upon arriving on the Big Island. I have been here before as I go every year to the Big Island and am never disappointed by the service I receive here. I always sit at the bar and order some appetizers and have cocktails. Our bartenders were Ariana and Aaron waited... More
