Tommy Bahama's Restaurant & Bar - Wailea, Maui
A dissappointing meal at an old favWe have always enjoyed Tommy Bahamas over the years and had a very nice lunch the day before, but this evening was veer disappointing. The special (recommended) was a 6oz filet with crab and lobster fondue topping. The topping was a gimmick at best with little flavor and so over-beaten that if there was crab or lobster present it wasn't identifiable. My son and I both requested medium rare and received medium instead which didn't improve the otherwise forgettable filet.
The mashed potatoes were dry and lukewarm. The vegetables were horrible combining stringy, tuff, bitter broccoli rabe with heirloom tomato quarters.
On the plus side, the service was great, the atmosphere was very comfortable and the live music was excellent.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGood FoodWe went to Tommy Bahamas for lunch. Chicken Lollipops were outstanding. The crab cakes were very tastey. The desserts is what we really went for. Their butterscotch pudding is the best. We also had key lime pie, that was good. Overall, we were very satisified with our outting there.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMIsland FavoriteI love eating at this restaurant. Every meal I have had there was special, however, their Coconut Shrimp is purely delicious. I had to order it twice during my stay on Maui. Now that we own a vacation home there, I will be looking forward to ordering it again and again.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMCONSISTENTLY SUPERIOR FOOD.CONSISTENTLY SUPERIOR FOOD.
GREAT DRINKS.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMA great place on Maui forA great place on Maui for lunch or dinner. Everything is delicious and well prepared. For dinner, we had filet mignon and a pan roasted local fish. Both were some of the best I've ever tried: sumptuous! We also tried the cocoanut shrimp, and the Hawaiian slaw that comes with those really make the dish. Yum! We stopped in for a late lunch one time and enjoyed the best fish tacos in the world. I mean it. And of course, the cocktails and the service were great as well. Wish I didn't have to go al the way to Wailea to enjoy their food!!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe wine list was outstandingThe wine list was outstanding and the prices for high end wine was very reasonable.
The food was very good and there is a wide choice of types of food, meat, vegetables, chicken & seafood.
Our table was inside and the combination of the bar noise and the singer outside made it difficult at times to carry on a conversation.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMArrived at the restaurantArrived at the restaurant a few minutes early and had a chance to get a drink before being seated. The bartenders were busy and I thought the service was a little slow, but once the drinks arrived, and we got seated, the service was outstanding.
The food was well prepared. I had scallops that were very fresh and perfectly cooked.
The ambiance was typical Tommy Bahama - relaxed, yet with an air of class. Specialty drinks were definitely on the menu when you're in a setting like this. The place is not cheap, but well worth the money for a special occasion.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother wonderful dinner atAnother wonderful dinner at Tommy's. Great to be out on the patio and listening to Howard.

The selection is so good that we can go several times each visit and always love it. (Compared to the hotel restaurants where I can find only one thing I want on their menu!).
The ambiance is great. Just a fun place!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe go to alot of restaurantsWe go to alot of restaurants on Maui and this was top notch.

Everything was fantastic, from the service to food, that we could have eaten here every night. However, it is PRICEY!! The bartenders are fantastic. Kai (I know this is not his full name) was outstanding, he tweaked our mojitos at our request and they were fantastic. The next night we were sat at a table in a very loud section and the server had our table moved to a more quiet location, without us asking, AND provided my husband and I each a glass of champagne to aplogize for the bad table. WOW! The food was excellent; I had the catch of the day both times and it was delicious - this from a person who never eats fish unless in Hawaii. I would highy recommend eating here.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe met another couple andWe met another couple and had a fantastic evening at Tommy Bahamas!

The food was excellent but the portions (on one dish) a little skimpy. Too bad they don't have more shade for their outdoor diners - we might have lingered longer:)3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing serviceAlthough there was a small emergency with unexpected rain shower drenching some of the outdoor tables, the hostesses bent over backwards to find us a perfect table close to the amazing live entertainer outside.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect first day of vacation.The place was alive!

It was very nice to have an adult evening and hear yourselves. We enjoyed a couple of bottles of petite syrah and the food was delicious. Friends had the Short Ribs and loved them and others had the special fish entre which was excellent.
