Trader Vic's was the original inventor of the Mai Tai cocktail. This had been on our to-do list for a long time. We were not disappointed. The cocktails were fabulous. The bar is in the basement of the Hilton hotel and due to the renovations it can be a little tricky to find. But well worth the trouble. .

The drinks were good... once the bartender finally acknowledged we were at the bar and he seemed a little put out to make us a 2nd round of drinks. The appetizer plate for $20 was a joke unless it was for a 4 year old. The sandwich I ate was good.. again pricey but strong which is why I was... More

The food is pricey, but good. Drinks are amazing! We enjoyed the appetizer plate, and the decor is outstanding.

We have been to this place several times for drinks. My husband loves the mai tai's. You have to try the peach mai tai! Our server was great and of course we love the atmosphere. We started out with the chicken satay and mushrooms with toast points. The mushrooms were amazing but I was expecting a different type of bread.... More

Trader Vic's was once something special, but now it seems to be just a chain. What can one say? Although it's not terrible, there isn't much left to make this place the really special experience that it once was. Won't be rushing back if there are other options.

We ate here while staying at the Hilton; the decor is pretty phenomenal and so different than the rest of the hotel. Very authentic "Polynesian Pop"; almost to the level of the Mai Kai in Fort Lauderdale. Our server was friendly (maybe a bit too talkative) and the drinks and food (we got a sampler appetizer and a seafood dish... More

We have been going to this restaurant for over 35 years while we lived in Atlanta. We moved to HHI about 8 months ago and had to evacuate so we went to Atlanta and visited all our favorite restaurants. Of course TVics was first on our list. Like the Paul Simon Says still crazy good Polynesian food after all these... More

Has a typical Trader Vic's menu with "Polynesian" flair. Very good service. Wasn't busy on a Wednesday evening.
