We went for the famous drinks but also had some lunch. Spent almost hundred bucks on 2 drinks, a pizza, and an appetizer. Seems a bit steep. View was great though.

The Mai Tai Bar has been a must visit place for us....well for decades....a trip to Waikiki wouldn't be the same without a stop for a Mai tai or two, along with something from the bar menu....you can sit, eat and drink and just enjoy being right on Waikiki Beach!

We had dinner and drinks at the Mai Tai Bar our first night in Hawaii because we were staying at the Royal Hawaiian, we were tired, and we wanted to eat on the beach. The drinks were good, and the Cobb Salad was good, but the Fish and Chips were only so-so and the menu was limited. We enjoyed the... More

My husband was working, and I had just hiked Diamond Head so I earned a Mai Tai. I ordered the Royal - delicious and nicely garnished. I was sitting on the railing overlooking Waikiki Beach and it was heavenly. It did get disrupted by a very loud group but not the establishment's fault.

Sit up at the bar. Nibble on complimentary nuts and sip your DELISH Maitai. Lovely gentle palms, beach, music in background. So romantic!

We decided to try this cute beach bar at the Royal Hawaiian hotel. It was so good we came back three more times. It is wonderful to sit right at the beach bar. You are immediately given Japanese peanuts and some type of nut covered in a wasabi coating. Goes GREAT with beer. The bar also occasionally will put a... More

This bar on the beach has a great view, great drinks, but slow service both to get drinks and food. The drinks are a bit pricey, $15 and up, but are very tasty and strong! Food service was slower then drinks. The atmosphere was casual and relaxed and the view was great. The Mai Tai selection was extensive.

Our second day on vacation we dropped in to Mai Tai. We liked it so much we popped in again on our last day. Great beach view. Kale our waiter on both occasions. My husband had Ahi Nachos and I had the cobb salad. We tried the pizza on the last day there. The food was unique and really great.... More

They are busy at this bar so service is slow but the Cobb salad and asparagus spears and artichoke pizza with dried slivers of beef are freshly prepared and yummy plus the beer and wine are great!

Stopped in for the infamous mai tai on a beautiful, warm evening. Great variety of choices. Tried the traditional Royal Mai Tai, which did not disappoint and delicious avocado hummus. Nice beach front setting and great service.
