I went to the Sunset Tiki Bar tonight with my husband and 5 yo twins. We loved it! Don’t go there for a fancy night out. Go there if you want to chill, take your time, have a tasty drink with your toes in the sand, and have an experience, as opposed to just going out for dinner. We stuck with basic, lower priced entrees. For me, the atmosphere is geared more towards things like burgers and not the more expensive entrees. There was nice live music, friendly service, a beach and a playground for the kids, grown-up games, and good drinks and good food. Perfect night out!
We went on a Friday night and arrived just after 5:30 PM. We were there for two hours. There was a steady flow of people arriving all evening. The people checking IDs on the way in were very friendly. We were helped immediately to a table and given our choice of where to sit. It did take awhile for someone to take our drink order, but the waitress was quite nice and seemed to be working hard, covering several tables. The drinks and nachos came quickly and were good. While waiting for the drinks I took the kids over to the beach area to play for a few minutes in the water. There were lots of kids having fun swimming in the pond. There was a coffee-house style singer performing. She was very good and pleasant to listen to. Nachos were loaded and yummy. We ordered our meals about 10 minutes after the nachos arrived, by our choice. The meals came quickly and we were happy with them. My husband had a burger, cooked with a nice char on the outside and medium-rare inside, just as he ordered. I had the BBQ pork sliders and they were tasty. The sliders were a small entrée, but after the nachos I didn’t want to have a large item. The kids menu had several nice choices. Our twins had the pizza (two nice sized slices) and hotdog. No complaints from them! Between the nachos and the entrées I took the kids to the play area where there is a playground for kids, and lots of things for adults (cornhole, volley ball, bocce, and other games.) There are a lot of bugs, but you have to expect that in a wooded, swampy area in the summer. This shouldn’t detract from the rating. We were prepared and had covered ourselves and the kids with bug spray before going in. The Adirondack style chairs are awkward for eating, but nice for relaxing in before and after eating. There are indoor bathrooms just across the parking lot. After dinner we paid the bill and took the kids and our drinks over to the play area. The kids had fun running and playing with other kids while my husband and I played cornhole and finished our drinks. We will definitely return!
