Although you may feel you are not visiting a local mom and pop shop, this is a restaurant that never disappoints. The service is stellar, friendly and efficient! The food is plentiful and offers something for everyone in your party. I loved my giant chopped salad and my moms fish sandwich was crisp and tasty.

Eating out is very pricey on the Kohala Coast so take advantage of any deal you see. We went twice to the early 4 to 6 Happy Hour. Tell the hostess you are there for the Happy Hour as the seating is only in a part of the restaurant, or sit at the bar. The Mai Tais are $7 and... More

Delicious food, great service and relaxing atmosphere. We dined on a Friday evening and there was a guy playing live acoustic music. It was lovely, highly recommend.

This restaurant is on the second floor in a small shopping center. It has reasonably good parking most of the time and an elevator . The menu is fun and there is frequently live music which can be wonderful or quite annoying. Ask for a table away from the music if it bothers you. The service is spotty. We had... More

I was a bit concerned about going to Tommy Bahama. However the food and the service were outstanding. Nice wine selection as well. It is not inexpensive however the quality of the food and service excellent.

Eating at Tommy Bahama has become our tradition on the Big Island. It is always the first restaurant we go to since it sets the tone of our trip. We ate there twice this trip and it was excellent like always! We went for dinner, but they still let us order off of the lunch menu. Service was great.

This restaurant is located upstairs above the Tommy Bahama store. There is an elevator available. Our waiter was prompt and attentive. The floor manager - not so much. She asked if we needed anything and we asked for water. It never arrived. She was apparently just window dressing. . We shared the beet salad which was on the fresh sheet.... More

Possibly the best Happy Hour anywhere. A beautiful restaurant with a superb bar. What can I say? The Happy hour menu has 5-6 appetizers for $6-$8. Plus a large list of tropical drinks, wines and local beer for $6-$10. Live music, killer location (Mauna Lani at the roundabout). Been here many times and are never disappointed.
