After all the fanfare I read here in TA I was expecting more. But , overall, not a bad experience. Princes seemed a bit high for the area. Seems like they are shooting for "trendy", if Tavares even has such a thing. Next time will...More

After participating in a local event in Tavares last week a group of us decided to go to Tiki West afterwards. We waited over an hour for our food. The server made several apologies. The food was delivered in two segments about 10 minutes apart....More

Very good seafood, the crab legs were excellent, for me. My husband was very happy with the buffalo shrimp combo. Bill was very accommodating, and they offer a nice lakeside atmosphere.

I wanted to give Tiki West an excellent rating, but couldn't due to the fact we were abandoned by our waitress to find later that they were training her to schuck oysters. I couldn't in good conscience, however, give it anything less than very good,...More

Great place to have a bucket of oysters and cold beers! I've eaten here 20+ times and the food is always fresh and tasty. Shrimp and Grits is wonderful! Has a fried egg on top- enough said. Fish tacos are out of this world. Get...More

The staff was pleasant, interactive and focused on work. The oysters were freshly shucked, and cooked as ordered. We shared 18 grilled oysters- priced as expected, would have loved to have had more. The blue crab balls were okay, would order something else. Many were...More

My girlfriend got very sick on her dinner tonight. She thinks the fish was undercooked. As soon as we got home, she began severely vomiting. I called and asked for the manager. Katie answered the phone and said she was the manager and part owner....More

Really bad night for this place or my ratings are way off base for Tavares area. Hard to believe that anyone would use barbeque seasoning on fish tacos. Really bad taste and the low country boil must have been made by a chain smoking cook,...More

If it isn't you won't be able to tell the difference, but we met the owner and his wife 2 Friday's ago, (they have a special menu then) they said fish was fresh and it was excellent! Headed there again today for lunch!
