    BAD.I first enjoyed Tommy Bahama is 2008, and LOVED IT! BUT, I was just there again 9/2014, and feel so ripped off! The food wasn't good at all, and it was way too overpriced. I would have been happy to pay the charges if the food was good, but all of it was SO disappointing... the music was way too loud- and I normally enjoy music at a decent level, but it was so loud it distracted from the ambiance. Our waiter was nice, but very slowwww, we waited 20 mins after our plates were cleared for the bill, then he brought out a dessert display, and again I told him, no thank you for dessert, waited another 10-15 mins for our bill, and then it took him forever to come get my credit card. The hostess gal was screwing around on her cell phone.

    Three years ago we celebrated a milestone birthday and had a terrific experience. This time we were seated by the kitchen even though we reserved in advance and the restaurant was only two thirds full. There were children running by the bar and the staff did not do anything about it. Drinks took nearly half an hour arriving after the appetizers. The server was disinterested and the appetizers were cold on arrival. For the main course, we had ahi, snapper, ribs and chicken. The chicken and ribs were good, but the snapper was salty and the ahi was tasteless and the sides were awful. We had to ask for a desert menu and coffee was not offered. TB used to be our favorite on Maui. Very disappointing.

    From the moment we walked in the door to the time we walked out, every staff member that dealt with us, or was just walking past, at a minimum said hello. It was our first time there but they made us feel like regulars. Food was good. Making a selection was tough as items are diverse in origin. Ribs seemed to be the safest choice for a newcomer. But again the staff was very helpful, offering suggestions that were spot on! The downer was kids and babies. Knowing a nearby resort caters to children we chose to dine later in the evening. Still kids and babies after 7:30. Did not appear that efforts were made to seat those with children in the same area. All in all our experience was good.

    The scene: Waitress: How about a (insert specialty drinks)? Just ice water for now thanks Oh that's no fun! Later after review of menu How about a (drink)? Ok I'll try that. And waters please. So two (drinks)? No just one & two waters. Next go round: We've got great appetizers. No, we're ready to order. Are you sure? (!) Yes, ready. I'd like tortilla soup to start... A bowl.. No, cup. And the Sanibel please. (Second order) I'd like the steak. And for the starter do you want soup or salad? Oh does it come with? No but (literally opening menu pages) we've got great ones. No thanks. Was asked 3x about a drink refill, while having to request water refills repeatedly. Finally--you can't leave w/out dessert! Oh yes we can. And not return.

    WOW - what a great find. The same high quality that the Namesake Brand is known for was delivered. We had a lovely dinner on the veranda/lanai. The atmosphere was superb. Our dinner was just excellant! Grilled Artichokes - YUM YUM. Coconut Scallops even better! Key Lime Pie - heaven! It will certainly be on my list of places to dine next time I am back on Maui! Don't be fooled the name - this is no "Cheese Cake Factory" chain restaurant. The food was on pair with some of the other best restaurants on the island and at 2/3 the price. Great food, great atmosphere, and reasonably priced (for Hawaii).

    Tommy Bahamas is always on our list when visiting Maui...at least once, more depending on how long we stay in the island. Food is always excellent. The encrusted opakapaka is wonderful and the special opakapaka dish was outstanding. This time around the service was a little spotty until the manager, Megan, came over to check on us. From that point on it was outstanding. We visited with Megan for awhile and Tommy Bahamas is lucky to have her! We watched her moving among all the tables, talking to diners, helping servers, clearing dishes whenever needed and always smiling! We will be back!

The drinks and the food were awesome. The entire staff that we encountered was so warm and welcoming. The next time that we're in Maui, we will return to this restaurant.

    Been coming here for years and always make this our first stop and our last before going home. We tried the grilled artichoke which I must say was the best darn artichoke I have ever eaten. Done perfectly, and had incredible flavor. We split both a salad and entree, as well as a desert. We have never had a bad meal here. We will be back! They live have live music nightly.

    The food is consistently good. However the service can vary. Sometimes we have a attentive service, other times including this most recent visit, we felt like we were bothering him. We were a party of 5, ordering apps, cocktails, entrees and desserts and the server just wasn't delivering this night. He dropped the check without asking if we wanted desserts. We had to constantly ask for water refills.

Upon arrival, the bar staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Our server was very kind, patient and knowledgeable. Chad came around and visited, which was nice. Food was outstanding and we were able to take advantage of the Restaurant Week options. Ambience was clean and island-like, which suited our vacation. We would definitely recommend this to visitors.

    My wife and I had dined at the Tommy Bahama in Orlando, Florida with friends a year ago and loved the food, service, and especially the Mai Tai. We were looking forward to dining at the Wailea restaurant and we were not disappointed. The hostess greeted us with a smile and sat us outdoors right away. We ordered our Mai Tai's and they were great. We split a coconut shrimp, and for the main course macadamia encrusted mahi mahi and pasta with shrimp. The appetizer, bread & meals were served "hot" and were excellent. Wonderful food & service made for a great evening.

    We sat outside and were pleasantly surprised by a live guitarist/singer. The music was projected through the speakers in the restaurant (including the bathroom) so you never felt like you had to miss the entertainment. The service was good. We were seated right away. The menu has a wide variety to choose from and the drinks were nice and strong. Great little spot for a couple or a small group but not much room for the table of 8 that was right next to us. We'd go back. I think there will be a location near us soon as we will definitely check it out when it opens.

    We are TB regulars. We had 7:00 reservations but had to wait 20 minutes for a good table. But, then they seated us at just an okay table. Server was nice but not very attentive. Drinks and wine ordered, but salad course arrived before drinks. Decided to cancel the Mai-Tais and just go for the wine. Food was excellent, as always, but it wasn't our best experience. Manager apologized and gave us some free appetizer/dessert tokens for future visits.

    Casual outside seating area. My first time at Tommy's. Had appetizers, ahi poke tacos, coconut shrimp, grilled steak salad. Tacos & salad were delicious! Both dishes were recommended by waitress. Shrimp okay. Wait Service Amanda & those assisting were first class! Not intrusive yet very attentive. Had cocktails: mango mojitos, martini ,maitai. Excellent esp' the maitai. My cousin a maitai' connoisseur "had maitais all over the island ,this is the best", freshly squeezed fruit juices, BIG difference. They support & use fresh local grown ingredients & fish. Fresh homemade ginger/hone butter w/ complimentary bread, unique & delicious. Overall one star less due to, hadn't tried main dishes or desserts. Lunch pricing reasonable.

    At the oceanside of Shops at Wailea on the second floor is a lovely relaxing restaurant/bar. I've eaten here several times with various friends. I've always been seated where I want, right next to the local musician whose soft refrains drift over the tropical breezes. I love the succulent Macadamia Crusted Mahi-Mahi with roasted asparagus spears . I always change my rice carb option for the yummy Chive Mashed Potatoes! My husband loves the half rack of the ribs, which he eats quickly so I don't steal a bite! At lunch, try the out-of-this-world Fish Tacos.

    True there isn't a shoreline pounding the surf at your table, but the food and service more than balanced a fine meal. The menu has a great selection of tasty food that isn't just seafood. After a couple weeks dining in Maui some variety is appreciated, but the snapper I had was delicious. The service was very good and right there, but not in your face. The prices reflect fine dining, but you save the cost of hearing the waves so it in some ways is a better value. Not being a hotel people are more dressed for the occasion, which matters to us when we are looking for an overall quality experience.

    A beautiful restaurant located in the Shops at Wailea. The menu is quite eclectic as is the cocktail menu. My wife ordered the Seared Ahi Kale Salad which she found to be fresh and delicious. I ordered the Cuban Sandwich with a House Salad and Yucca Plant Fries. It was the perfect Cuban sandwich. Our server was effficient but did not rush us through our meal. All in all it was an enjoyable experience.
