    Regularly have visited TB twice during our week stays on the island. However, this past visit was a bit of a disappointment. Salads which in the past might have been shared with someone, barely one cup of salad on a large square plate! Drinks from the bar had mostly ice and not the drink. Our server gave us the wrong check, should have reviewed before handing us the check. They also were not that busy on a Friday night at 7:15!! Been a Fav, not now!

    This was the 3rd time we have eaten at Tommy Bahamas in Wailea and we always enjoy the atmosphere and food. We were there for a mother-daughter trip and it was great, the service was very attentive and the food is delicious. This was the first time inside the restaurant, as we usually sit out on the lanai and the atmosphere was very energetic, outside would be better for couples since that is where the live music originates (always awesome) but the whole restaurant is really great. I will go back and would recommend for couples, families, girl trips, any time you want great food and an island atmosphere!

    I had the filet mignon, and no lie, the BEST steak I've ever had. We also ordered the red snapper, that was delicious as well. We especially loved how they showcased dessert. Was no menu, they actually bring a tray out and you get to see what you're ordering which is really cool. Would definitely go back.

    Dined on 10/13/2014
    We had a nice but inexperienced waiter, we were given a lunch menu which was 1/2 the price for what we got on our bill for the same thing (a little shocking but we paid the bill without a fuss). The service was below par for this type of restaurant and for the prices paid. We had to ask for water to be refilled, salad was what I would expect in a regular diner. The meal was fine but they brought it to our table before we finished our salad, we had to ask for clean silverware after the table was cleared of salad dishes. Out of the Four nights out paying similar prices this was not even closely comparable. They apparently make it off their location and name not the dining experience I have come to expect in the area.

    We had three Mahi Mahi dinners and one coconut Shrimp dinner (not on menu but you can order as dinner) All the fish was way over cooked, dry and very thinly cut - the coconut shrimp was over fried and dried out. My crab bisque was excellent)One salad with beets and feta cheese, couldn't found two tiny piece of beets and a couple dabs of feta - we all started counting the ingredience - LOTS OF LETTUCE. The Wait staff was excellent, the music was nice, it is Tommy Bahamas, atmospher and fun place to have dinner if you are not a foodie.

    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.

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!

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.
