This is a popular and somewhat famous place (I think) and one of the only bars that are open at night but closes at 12pm on Saturday!! I had the ahi burger and it was great. Very relaxed and fun atmosphere.

The decor is questionable. Is it an age worn Tiki Bar or is it made to look old and worn on purpose? Decor and sticky table aside, the service and the food were above average. This was th e only place in a ski village on a Martin Luther King Holiday/NFL playoff Sunday who could seat us in 15 minutes... More

We had a great dinner at Lakanuki tonight. We had an early dinner after skiing and took advantage of their happy hour drinks. I had a huge Mai Tai for $4.50. My husband and I each had the BBQ pulled pork sandwich with the Lomalomi side salad. It was delicious and one of the best deals in Mammoth. The restaurant... More

Lakanuki is the best place to go in mammoth after a day of skiing or any other afternoon. The happy hour from 3:00 to 6:00 has great food and drink deals. The atmosphere is great as is the service.

Much like all the other reviews here that state the scene in Lakanuki is Hawaiian themed. For some odd reason in a ski adventure resort area like Mammoth it kind of works. There is ample seating and a cluster of TV screens spread throughout the place. The bar is primarily set up like a sports bar serving bar food and... More

Good atmosphere with plenty of drinks and big screens. Good happy hour and decent selection of appetizers. Try the other restaurants in the village for dinner.

Great Hawaiian atmosphere with mediocre food. Great happy hour but don't look to hold a conversation with any staff member working. Ordered a pretzel and it was hard as a rock along with the 2 day old brown cheese it came with.

Wonderfully good Margarita's, and a pretty nice steak too - but the salmon we ordered was waaaaay over-done and dry. Shame really - nice guy serving us, a great place for drinks, but I think I'd eat somewhere else.

I'm from western NY and we invented Beef on Wick...so I was surprised to find it here in No. CA and had to order it. It was just like home! Loved it. Friendly service, reasonable prices and good food! Thanks for bringing me a piece of home to my vacation!
