I'm giving them 5 stars because the food and drinks were that good, but it's expensive. We were there for a late lunch and our party got mainly appetizers and cocktails. We had a total of 5 appetizers, and there wasn't a single plate with anything left on it. The chips with guacamole and cheese dip should be a must... More

Food ok but rather rushed. Keen to move people through the service. Drinks varied and service pleasant. Plenty of local customers from the nearby hotels so no real competition. A little complacent.

We were a party of 12, just arrived from O'ahu looking for lunch, near 2 pm. Our ages ranged from 10 to 75 years old, with two picky eaters one a teen the other his father near 50. The Lunch Menu had a large selection, from starters, to meal salads, burgers, fish etc.

After a very disappointing Birthday dinner (that ended up being just appetizers) at a neighboring restaurant my friend and I went to Tommy Bahamas. They immediately read our sad faces, and accommodated to our every need. Service and food were both on point- they even picked up on my birthday and brought me a complimentary piece of pie for my...

Friendly atmosphere, live music, service was good, food was good. Lots of options for kids, and a nice deck, even if the view is a parking lot.

Always a must go. Superfriendly staff with a great sense of aloha and humor. Cocktails are amazing. Make sure to get a table outside if you are european and can enjoy a nice dinner outside an airconditioned room :-)

We ate here twice, for a lunch and a dinner and enjoyed both meals. The atmosphere is welcoming, the staff friendly and the menus reflective of produce available on the island. The food was of a very good standard and we enjoyed the fact that the food was so obviously island inspired. The barman, Kyle, also made some amazing cocktails,... More
