Since this is a restaurant based on a clothing store, suffice to say expectations weren't high. However, the whole family really enjoyed Tommy Bahama's. Usual kids options, but very well done. Macadamia nut crusted mahi mahi was sublime. The ribeye was perfectly cooked. The guacamole in the dip duo was as good as any I've had in Los Angeles, which... More

We love the place. Great food and atmosphere and close to other good restaurants. Happy Hour is a must stop on Da Big Island or go for a wonderful lunch or dinner. JoJo always treats us like family, but all the staff are great.

We stayed within walking distance and were thrilled to find out this restaurant (gladly) offers take-out. While waiting, we had a drink at the bar and watched the sunset. The view from the second-story bar makes up for the distance from the beach and the drinks are great. Friendly staff, reliably good food. (Kids menu too if you ask).

We had a long day at the beach and didn't prepare for the group of 6 hungry people. They were so accommodating and friendly when we walked in without reservations. Killer view and out of this world happy hour! We all cleaned our plates and the live music was amazing! The swordfish, chicken, and tuna were the best we've had... More

Dinner for two! Sat outside, listened to the live music and dinner was perfect! Catch of the day, Mahi Mahi, for me and my husband had the special of the day, sword fish. We had no room for dessert! It was our first time coming here and it won't be our last!

All of the food is exceptional, I had the Mahi Mahi as well as their Tortilla Soup the first visit and hands down had the best meal on the table - which is a touch comparison when it all was phenomenal. We went back a second time during our stay with a major factor being how unbelievably good their Key... More

On our first full day on the big island, we wanted to find a nice place for two couples to go for dinner. We were VERY pleased with Tommy Bahama. Beth, our server, was very knowledgeable about every detail of their food and was great with helping my wife with gluten-free options. The food was delicious and the drinks were... More

Not a bad place to get out of your hotel's restaurants. Service was adequate as well as the food. Prices are Hawaii normal for mid-scale food.

Three of went for dinner. We were greeted and seated right away. Waited for server to greet and bring drinks. Crab cakes weren't good, mushy. Ribs ok, pork chop was good, beet salad was good. Over all it was a pleasant experience but just too expensive.
