Our adorable waitress, Naomi, took such good care of us. She saved the day. Flavorful wing dips. Beautiful lake view.

We walked over to get some lunch. Place was packed, but we managed to pull 3 tables together. Why doesn’t every table that isn’t under some type of roof have an umbrella option? Why not set up a small beer only stand away from the bar to sell more buckets of beer and to reduce congestion for the wait staff who have to keep running through a crowd under the main roof and to serve your customers quicker? It takes 20 minutes to get a bucket of beer. Place has potential but is very mismanaged. Sorry manager. Employees did a great job with the very limited tools they have been provided. Don’t have any expectations. You are paying to sit on a deck and look at the water. When you get half way done with the first bucket, order another one. It will arrive right on time.

We arrive around 5:30pm on a Saturday and the bar was packed . We decided the best place to order was at the bar. We got the drinks pretty quick but we had to be a bit aggressive. We ordered the coconut shrimp but they forgot so we ordered the again, 30 minutes later we asked what happened to our order and he handed me shrimp and an order of fries, so we got free fries and someone else ordered again. the bummer was the food was cold but so was the beer all good. great view on a sunny summer day.
After we went out to dinner we returned for the live music and danced and drank and had a great time. The couple called Ernest Entertainment have some talent. I think they play there regularly.

Nice outdoor location with lovely view of Tawas harbor and fun live music. Inaccurate but friendly service, slow delivery, and way overpriced cafeteria food.

After waiting 20 minutes for our first drinks on a Saturday afternoon, the first round was wrong. And hour after that (yes, 1.5 hours), one of the sandwiches was wrong when delivered. We ordered five wraps; it took 90 minutes. Each wrap came with fries, and was way overpriced at $11 each for a good, but unexceptional, meal. Virgin daiquiris cost as much as the real thing. Go for the atmosphere. Service, food, & prices are better at Jack'ss, a block up.

This tiki bar has the potential to be an awesome place. It has a great view of the water, a lot of seating both indoors and out. The service though. Horrible!!!! We waited 10 minutes and no one even acknowledged us. They were NOT busy. My husband finally went up to the bar and got us drinks. He waited there too!! The wait staff is clueless and whomever is running the place should be replaced. They don't know the first thing about running this place which is pretty sad because this could be a really cool place.

I live in East Tawas, close enough to Bikinis I can hear their music on the weekends. It's part of the Tawas Bay Beach Resort, that used to be Holiday Inn, right in the middle of town and on the beach. They have live music and great food. Bikinis is outside on the beach. Very fun and energetic.

An outside Tiki Bar on Lake Huron. Friends and I felt like we were in the tropics. Had ourselves a couple of Rum Runners and Horderves. Listening to the entertainment of folk music for all ages. Will go back.

Went there with friends this past Saturday. Not busy, several open tables. After over 10 minutes of waiting and watching the wait staff clean tables and go in and out of the back room to eat we decided to leave. Said something to the bartender on the way out about lack of service and all she said was "sit at the bar and I would have served you". These people don't have a clue about customer service.

The best atmosphere and view from a bar in Tawas, but sadly, you can't get service! Maybe, you would be successful sitting directly at the bar, but don't even think about sitting with 4 people a table. Two servers failed to even say hello. For 10 minutes we watched them provide 1-step-service, while coming out from in back, chewing mouths full of food. Eventually we just left...went downtown to Mr. Jacks'ss and got instant attention.
