everyone at my table ordered a different drink and we all tasted each others (4 of us). I didn't like any of them. I thought the drinks would be all fruity and yummy since it's a tiki bar, but they weren't at all. we ordered 3 different apps and those were just OK. I wont be going there again.

You have no idea what you're going to get or what's going to happen at this place! Every time I've been here the oddest sort of things have happened. Nothing too weird or scary or even attributable to the restaurant... just when you think something is odd, someone weirder walks in and circles around an apple while speaking nonsense... not...

So many runs to choose from! Amazing drinks. The food... Omg! So delicious, I couldn't stop eating until my plate was clean. Fun atmosphere, cool decor, tons of tables and the staff were so accommodating and fun!

The only way you will not like this place is if you don't like rum. They have a huge selection of rums, and then I think one tequila, one vodka, and boxed red and white wines. But the rum drinks are delicious! And the food, well you'll find yourself thinking about how good it was for at least the next... More

Similar to that sorority-style basement party with a grand vision but a mediocre execution, visiting Tacoma Cabana is an experience you will not soon forget. The child-sized furniture and slightly tacky decorations in a basement setting lends a distinctly comical vibe to the evening. Barman Jason Miller lives up to the hype, as the flaming cocktail was delicious and stayed... More

Checked this place out and it's really fun. Had the pupu platter and each of the items was fresh and fun. Love that there was a little spicy kick without overpowering the food. My drink was amazing-what's not to like about a flaming orchid garnished drink? Can't wait to go back as everything we saw, looked great. This would be... More

They have the only RUM bar that I know of in all of Washington State and it would make Jimmy Buffet proud. The atmosphere is ok, but the drinks are awesome. I hope to try the food there one of these days.

Tiki was everywhere decades ago. Then it wasn't. But it's being rediscovered now. Fun place but it's small and can get crowded. You might have to wait to get in depending on when you go. And only open Wednesday through Saturday.

Jerk chicken was good and wife had good tropical salad. We would eat here again. Did not try drinks but they did look special.

This place has a great feel from the moment you walk in. It is a smaller restaurant, but really has a Polynesian/island vibe. A good selection of food and a wide selection of rum drinks. If you are looking to "escape" for an evening, you should definitely check this place out!
