The music was excellent. Our seating near the stage was great, also. The calamari wasn't very good but the guava back ribs were delicious. What spoiled it from being terrific and it's not your fault was the loud, foul mouth, boisterous woman next to us.

The waiter was not friendly. The seafood was overcooked and sides were cold. There was an odor of trash near our table. It was a very disappointing meal.

We visited this place to grab a quick bite after soaking in sun. It ended up being a full course meal. They have a good list of cocktail collection and for someone who loves tike vibe , this is the place.

They have souvenirs that comes with selected tiki drinks. Overall , the place is decent.

This was our family's 5th Thanksgiving meal at Tiki's after missing 2020 due to travel restrictions. The food was excellent as usual. Sitting outside with a cool breeze blowing was great despite the late afternoon sun. Server Emily was very attentive to our needs. Jennifer (Sales Manager) stopped by to say hello and to make sure everything was in order. Thanks to Kelly for setting this all up - again!

It ended up being an absolutely wonderful thanksgiving meal. Everything was cooked perfectly and the size of everything was great as well. Nice strong drinks, beautiful view, great service. We might just come back next year and skip the cooking again.

This was their Thanksgiving special. So it had to have turkey, but it was not just any old turk--it was super-moist, cooked with superb spicing, and melded with juicy cranberries.

The prix-fixe, 3-course meal started out with a butternut squash soup with cornbread sprinkles, which was to die for! The meal itself featured the turkey, plus mashed Maui sweet potatoes (purple!), interesting dressing, scalloped potatoes, and Brussel sprouts. Disclaimer: I hate Brussel sprouts, but these were bacon-cooked, nice and crisp, and even sprout-hater me ate 'em up.

To top it off, the dessert was a pumpkin cheesecake with whipped cream and a wonderful caramel drizzle. Almost too full to finish it off!

Drinks were fair; the Mai-Tais were just OK (they had guava juice, which was not beneficial to the taste), but the Sex-on-the-Beach was delicious, and so was the lava flow.

Service was quite slow (probably the holiday, being short-staffed, the pandemic, or all three), but we enjoyed the time together, the food, the view (perfect for viewing a sunset!), and the slowness did not matter to us anyway. Hawaiian time, right?

We are anxious to go back again, not on a special holiday, and sample the regular menu.

We give it five-stars! And, five full bellies. Wonderful!

Ate here 1 week ago and everything was great. This visit was completely different even though I ordered the same Meal. Server was not as friendly, food was not as tasty and server had no sense of timing. Salad arrived at the same time as meal, salad was much smaller, food arrived before we even had a chance settle in our chairs.

The views are amazing. Went during lunch so was unable to try the Salmon, which I really wanted, so settled for appetizers. They were good. Had Ribs and wings. Average taste. Nothing to brag about.

Music was way too loud for dinner. Could not carry on a conversation. Ok for bar but not dinner.
Have been to the grill in the past and it really changed. For me, not for the better.

We dined at Tiki’s Grill for my wife’s birthday. Food was excellent, including a superb veggie option. Service was fast. You better work on your salad because the main course will be out rather quickly. That was fine with us. And did I mention the sunset?

We were expecting a better experience overall given the reviews. The ambience didn’t feel inviting and I should’ve listened to my gut. The food was good enough to eat but not great or memorable, like Roy’s. The Mai Tais were ok, enjoyed the foam. In the end, would’ve been better off just getting something quick and tasty.
