We stopped by for the historical tiki relevance that we read about in a book. We stayed because the people we met and the wait staff and the "dishwasher"/owner were very nice. We tried one of their featured drinks in a tiki glass. Very sweet and something I wouldn't normally drink but it was good. We tried the monkey on... More

I love this place. The service is friendly, the drinks are what you would expect from a Polynesian themed restaurant (does anyone ever eat a meal here? LOL!) and the service super friendly. The seating is comfortable and the atmosphere relaxed.

Outdated, mildew-like odor, filthy decor, okay service, overpriced and overcooked food. I would definitely not recommend this restaurant, nor would I return.

My son wanted to go here for dinner so we thought we would give it a try. It looks like just what you would expect. The interior is a south seas mock up that is in obvious need of updating. We thought we would try the place for dinner and that was a mistake. It took us almost an hour... More

I was really excited to try this place. The decor is really awesome inside and outside and I enjoyed the vibe. However, we were told to seat ourselves and we did. 15 minutes went by and no one came over to take our drink orders. We found a waitress walking around and asked if we could be at any table...

This was my second time to this place.It was a Monday night at 8 pm. I feel like this might be the place to eat and drink on the weekend. The business was dead. 4 people in the establishment not including My husband and myself or the staff. We were hungry and wanted a full menu, which we looked at... More

Had high hopes after reading about this place and the decor was great. Complete tiki vibe until the bartender opened her mouth. I asked about happy hour and the response I got was typical dive bar, "Dollar off Bud, Bud Light... " None of the Tiki drinks were on the HH menu. I asked for a recommendation off of the... More

I took a group of 35 for a Sunday Happy Hour meetup. What a great visual place. So different. The staff was fun and friendly. We were treated very well and the management appreciated such a large group. We had so much fun laughing and visiting. We were both inside and on the patio. We all want to go back... More
