It was late, our luggage was lost, we were starving. We headed here expecting mediocre food and to be ripped off. It was a bit pricey, but imagine our surprise when the food was quite excellent! We just ordered appetizers (and a few over sweet drinks which we regretted). The Island Ahi Tartare Tiki Stack was so delicious I am honestly surprised we didn't order 3 of them. The tuna was perfectly minced, the avocado added a little heft without overpowering, the garlic crostini was a perfect compliment, and the quail egg (of which I was initially skeptical) really tied it all together. It was shocking for what seemed to be a loud, tourist establishment! Although that was our favorite dish, the Prime Rib Poke is not to be scoffed at either. Tender cubes of Prime Rib on a lovely aoili.

All in all, everything we ate and ordered was great. To top it off, the staff was fantastic!

Good happy hour...prime rib poke is tasty. Wine-down Wednesdays features all wine half price by glass and bottle. Nice selection. Great views. Attentive service.

I was in Hawaii over Super Bowl weekend and ended up at this place to watch the game. Despite the poor quality of the game, I thought this place was good enough for repeat business nightly. There are inside/outside options for seating but I sat at the outside bar. The balcony and view is fantastic and I thought the bartenders did a good job. I sampled a few items from the lunch (hot wings and salt and pepper shrimp) and dinner menus (Hawaiian Plate) and it was all pretty good--especially the shrimp. There is nightly music at the balcony. I'd definitely visit this place again.

Prime rib was to die for. Make sure to make an early reservation maybe about 630 645.. wonderful view of the sunset right across the street. Housed with a hotel that offers free valet parking for 3hrs for visitors of Tiki's
