Pleasantly surprised

We were able to get reservations easily which made us Leary. However, we got a beach front table, had a fun waitress and loved it. Great band playing, ordered drinks in some fun take home mugs. Would recommend.

I have been here a few times over the last few years and I've never really had a great experience. I've had bad service and been served food that was nothing like what I expected based upon the description in the menu. live music and location are the positives.

I was skeptical about this place... it's by the lobby of the Aston Waikiki Beach hotel. But it is better than the typical hotel restaurant. The menu has some creative touches, the food is solid, and the prices are reasonable by Hawaii standards. Everything tasted fresh. The service was good. Even though we wanted to try new places, we came... More

My friend who lives in Hawaii, took a group of us to Tiki's Grill for drinks as apparently Tiki's famous 1944 Mai Tai, is one of the best Mai Tais on the island. I tasted at least five different Mai Tais on my trip and have to agree. As for the atmosphere, we sat outdoors overlooking Waikiki beach, had a... More

We were staying at the hotel attached to the Tiki Bar so was usually the start and finish of our day. The atmosphere here was amazing. The views spectacular and the service excellent. They have live bands playing and we were thrilled to see people up dancing. The food was delicious tasty and satisfying. Very reasonably priced. Once you try... More

Had dinner in this place and it doesn't get much better. The food was great, the drinks cold, the service second to none and great easy listening live music. Just when you thing that sounds fantastic, the sjnset was just superb and topped the evening off. Will certajnly eat there agakn one day.

The location on Waikiki Beach and the Tiki decor make for a great ambiance, but the food and drinks were only ok. I rate Tiki's "very good" based on the ambiance and because tripadvisor doesn't have a rating between "very good" and "average." It really deserves just a "good." Still, it's definitely worth visiting.
