when this place first opened a couple of years ago they had great tiki drinks, especially the mai-tai's. they were supposedly using a recipe similar to trader vic's original. the atmosphere was good for a small place and the big tiki's near the booths look pretty cool. so do the tiki mugs that are available for customers to purchase. unfortunately, things have changed. we had mai-tai's there last night and they were terrible -- green in color and way too sweet. a mai-tai should be amber in color and not overly sweet. an inquiry revealed that ronrico rum was used, a real no-no for a mai-tai. the appetizers were a little better -- crab rangoon and conch fritters -- no complaints. the waitress was young and fairly attentive, but a little clueless; said it was her first night working there. the crowd was young and a little too loud for a tiki bar -- reminded me more of a sports bar or a college town bar. my main complaint is with the bartender: seemed more interested in impressing a couple of semi-drunk young ladies at the bar than making good drinks.
