    I would recommend tiki rock for friends night out or couples. It most definitely is not family friendly. Food was mediocre, but vibes were lit. However, they need to add more variety to their new playlist.

    They actually added 18% tip for a party of 4 (Cost server 2% from what we always tip) But I consider that very sneaky.

    The food was nothing to rave about but I wasn’t bad either their value proposition come from their drinks which were quite good and served in a crushed ice style so they are strong at first but mellow out. Which is personally how I like it. However their music is really loud for a Sunday am brunch. Wish they turned it down a good amount. The service was awesome! Our waitress gave us free shots too!! Honestly if it wasn’t as loud I’d give it 5 stars for the experience alone!

    Honestly it was an underwhelming experience. The place had one table when we first arrived and it took about 15-20 minutes to get our drinks, which I watched as the bartender really wasn’t slammed to have it take so long. The food arrived slightly cold (eggs slightly undercooked) and again the service was incredibly slow for a restaurant that, until around when we left, had three tables at most. All that said, they add 18% gratuity regardless of party size, which is absurd and I felt only made the fact the service was so terrible even more funny. If you’re going to add an obligatory tip, I would at least expect a canned Diet Coke to not take 25 minutes to come and warm food. Would not come back.

    Reservations were at 8:15 we were not seated until 9pm. A host basically pulled a table out of nowhere for my party of 4 that traveled here out of state to celebrate a birthday. The table was uneven and by the door. We politely asked if we could wait for another table as there were some tables getting up. We were told those tables were for larger parties and we could not be seated, yet the host sat a group of 4 that came in after us at one of these tables. The host told us “this or nothing” slammed the menus down and walked away. My group left without ever sitting down. It was horrible customer service and a horrible experience.

    I made reservations for a party of 4 days in advance and when I called to add one more person to the reservation the girl at the front desk told me they cannot do that because they get really busy. At the time you make a reservation they put your credit card down on file because if you cancel a reservation they charge you a $15 fee. When we arrived we got there 10 minutes early and had to wait 15 minutes after our original reservation time because our table wasn’t available. The atmosphere was fun except our table was similar to cafeteria style tables, very close to other tables, and the music was so loud you couldn’t hold a conversation without yelling to the person next to you or across from you. The cuisine was very over priced for it being mainly bar style food. The crab rangoons were the worst I ever had and the prime rib was ordered medium rare and half of it came out very well done and the asparagus that came with it was difficult to chew. The coconut shrimp was very good along with goat cheese and artichoke dip but the chips that came out with the dip were really hard. The drinks and lobster Mac and cheese were probably the best part of the meal. Our waitress was excellent and the DJ was on point with the playlist. The place isn’t how it looks on Tik Tok or any social media it’s more hyped up, the drinks do not come out smoky or lit with flames and it’s a lot smaller than it looks. Overall if you are looking for a casual place for fancy drinks and bar food this would be the place.

    Love this place however we had to wait an hour and a half for our meal. When asked our server (after having to catch the server) said they are working on it. I know she forgot to even put it in as we watched atleast two tables come in after us and leave way before we got our meals. And she came around twice beforehand to ask us about the drinks as well as a neighboring server. It was slightly busy so a longer then normal wait seemed maybe ok. Will def go back but was slightly disappointed in tonight as the server didn’t even own up to it or do anything for us on the bill. I have been a server for many places before and I get it. But it was A LONG TIME. The food we did get though was phenomenal.

    Truthfully the ambiance of tiki rock is fun for the ages of 21-23 other than that tiki rock is not it. I woke up this morning wondering what i paid 300 dollars for. The ambiance was underwhelming and food was horrible. They have such a good menu but food is not cooked correctly and they use cheap product. The drinks are amazing they have that down pact but the food gave my friend and i stomach aches this morning. Probably wont be back unless its for drinks. We were a party of 2 and they added gratuity automatically which was a little strange but i get it. Ive always heard mixed reviews about tiki rock and the reviews were right. Which was sad. Poor quality

    I try to not write bad reviews because I also work in the service industry. I’ve lived in Boston for 4 years and I’ve never had such a bad experience. We ordered two drinks calamari and wings. We never received the wings, saw our waitress twice and didn’t receive the drinks until we were done with the calamari. We watched two parties leave because of the negligence. When it came time to pay there was a gratuity already added to bill! The awful service and charges made my friend and I wishing we went some where else. Although the ambiance is cool I really recommend looking elsewhere for 15 dollar drinks, ok food and awful service.

    What ruined my experience was the atmosphere. While the venue itself is high quality and the music was good, the crowd there was super ratchet. People were twerking on each other everywhere, literal twerk train right in front of our table. One girl seemingly on drugs kept reaching out/touching my friends hair and pulling her entire shirt up. We ordered one round of jell-o shots and they came pre package in a plastic container with a peel off top. Closed out and left immediately afterwards.

    I went here for my birthday dinner at 5pm, and there was basically no one there so I thought maybe we would get very fast service and amazing food. Well unfortunately the steak was all fat and over cooked, the crab rangoons were $17 for 5(they also came out in less than 5 min which makes me think they were frozen), the rice with chicken was watery, and on top of that they automatically charge 18% gratuity. I definitely do not think this place is worth that. I paid $100 for chewy steak and watery rice.

    Food and drinks were great but service was terrible. I had to order my drink 3 times and took over an hour to come out, and people at my table didn’t receive food until 30 minutes after the rest of our meals came out. The waitress apologized but made no effort to improve, likely because of the guaranteed 18% gratuity.

    It was a terrible experience. We tried to get in and were told we would not be let in because they thought we all had fake ID’s when they were real RI ID’s. They asked us a bunch of questions and we felt as if it was unfair that they did not let us in unless we gave them three forms of identification. We did not even step foot into the restaurant. Overall, I do not recommend.

    My husband and I went last night for the first time. The wait to come in was fast. Our waiter was great and patient with us while we ordered our food. I was amazed how the manager was going around making sure everyone was having a great time and service. I appreciated that since I have a business of my own and understand the importance of customer service. The music had a great transition from song to song which kept the energy in the room in tact. The food was delicious. I would definitely come back again and recommend this place.

    This just wasn’t the right fit for a quiet date night to celebrate my partners birthday. We weren’t expecting the “club vibe”. The music was loud and the drinks were a bit too sweet/served in plastic. Our server was very nice and attentive but we chose to leave after the appetizer. Tiki Room seems better suited for a club like night out, not a date night.

    It’s a bar scene that offers decent but overpriced food. Soooooo loud. So loud that the hostess couldn’t hear reservation names correctly so she sat another group at our table and we had to wait longer. They didn’t think to make it up to us in any way and the service continued to be slow. The table we sat at was a sort of high-top but the bar to rest your feet on was all the way down on the floor. So our feet were dangling for an hour and a half which got pretty uncomfortable. Drinks & shellfish were pretty good. Salmon and tuna on the seafood towers and in the poke bowls were decent. Mussels were good enough. My friend said the steak tips were just ok.

    Just all around disappointment. The server took 15 minutes to get our drinks. She did come over and say they are backed up but when she dropped our drinks, my ice was completely melted as in it was sitting at the bar for too long. Food was ok, nothing special for the price. The music was way too loud and it was hard to talk with each other. Just a lot of money for little excitement.
