The frozen painkiller is delicious. Food portions are a bit smaller than most restaurants but also appropriately priced. Food was great. Atmosphere is tiki tiki fun.

Anniversary dinner at the place we met. Despite our reservation, several walk-ins were seated before us. We were told that we didn’t specify that it was a special occasion. I guess the gifts we were carrying weren’t enough of a clue.

First time for the two of us and we really enjoyed it. It felt like a brief vacation from Ohio. The food and drinks were excellent, and our server was always nearby when needed. The only slight issue was the noise volume. It was tough to hear at times. Will definitely go back.

Cool environment with an island/tiki bar motif. We visited on a thursday evening around 6:30. Surprisingly, there was plenty of open tables with no wait. Some unique appetizers on the menu. Our waitress made a few recommendations. The broccoli was a surprising treat. We also had wings (spicy Hawaiian sauce) and vegetable spring rolls. They were good but not great. The biggest disappointment was the presentation of the food. Everything was in served on plastic..plastic plates, forks and all the sauces were in little plastic cups with lids. It took away form the experience. The main dishes had little preparation or pride in their presentation. The sauces we're interesting but that was overshadowed by the little plastic cups they were served in.

To be fair, I think the main attraction is the drink menu which had about 20 choices with lots of creativity with unique combinations. I was there with my kids so I did not partake. All in all, I would recommend this place for drinks and appetizers. The ambiance quickly puts you in a festive mood!

Really I can’t over sell the bang bang broccoli. The huli huli, bang bang and Unagi sauces were all wonderful. Haley’s Comet was the most outstanding drink to me.

I absolutely love this place! The staff are so kind and accommodating and you can tell that they care so much about the people that come in. As if that wasn’t enough to make me want to go back, the food and drinks were so good! We got a variety of things and we loved every bit! I can’t wait to go back :)

Love this cute little Tiki place. I especially like that you can get cool cocktails of varying alcohol amounts that are stated on the menu for novice cocktail drinkers. My husband said he got hungry again later, but I told him to order the fries next time!

Five stars all around. Great service, food, drinks and atmosphere. I wouldn't change a thing. Our party ranged in age from 30 to 84, and we were all in agreement that everything was perfect! Thanks, Huli Huli!

Just loud enough for a first date, quiet enough to have table conversations without feeling like you're raising your voice. String and delicious drinks, very friendly wait staff and bartenders, and delicious food. The bang bang broccoli and spring rolls were AMAZING. Highly recommend!

Kitchen was extremely slow. Bartenders tried to compensate with free drinks. Food, once it came, was good. Will try it again and see if service is quicker.

An unfussy place where Hawaii and Columbus come together. The food is delicious and reasonably priced. Highly recommend the Bang Bang Broccoli for appetizer. The build-your-own main entree is a crowd pleaser. Exotic tropical drinks are a must especially the "Painkiller". Nice patio, too.
