We recently hosted a birthday party on Hina's Lanai which is adjacent to the pool area & the live entertainment is on the other side. The location was superb with great views over to the beach & we had a wonderful sunset. We pre-booked this area so it was all set up nicely with plenty of room for our 30... More

It looks good. Live music, ocean view and hawaiian themed decor. Really cool cups that you can purchase. The food very very poor. My husband got the special rib eye steak & I got butterfish after the waiter reccommending them. However I think after what we were served he was asked to sell these dishes. Steak- rubber, no char grill... More

Since we stay at the Queen Kapiolani Hotel we have been going to Tiki's since 2003 and keep coming back year over year. The drinks are delicious, the happy hour is good, and plenty of live music. This trip we went for a couple of lunches and an appetizer stop. I had the spinach fettuccine and fish taco's they were... More

We had a party of 8 at this restaurant with a reservation, but it did take a while to be seated though. There was live entertainment which was nice and if it hadn't been dark, we would have had a very cool view of the ocean. The food was good, but it is a bit spendy.

waiting at the bar for a table (we were walk-in's) we enjoyed a couple of drinks (Wednesday was "wine down wednesday, 1/2 off wine - great for me!) and met the bartender Rick. He took great care of us, even while juggling a very full bar and busy wait station. For dinner, Romulus provided great service, checking on us without... More

The wife and I were on honeymoon, and Tiki's was one of only 2 places we ate at twice. The service was good, the food was great - albeit possibly a little fussy. The only negative we had was the photographer taking photos with a view to selling them as a momento - a bit tacky, but then you're in... More

I would have rated this places five if it had not been for the really bad service. We were told there was a half an hour wait which surprised me because a lot of the tables in the front were empty. We were told that we can sit at the bar and order a drink and listen to the live... More

Thanks for alerting us to this. We work hard to offer good food and friendly service, and I’m sorry that we didn’t meet your expectations. I hope you will give us another chance in the future. Do you happen to recall the name of your server or ticket number? We would like to coach that person to success. More

Happy hour is from 2-5 pm for draft beers, gin and tonics, rum and coke, margaritas and killer Mai Tais. Appetizers are yummy. Great calamari and pork wings/shanks. Great view from the bar. Good service.
