We ate there twice during our stay. This is an top notch restaurant, run very efficiently with great employess. Their Macadamian Nut crusted Mahi Mahi was superb ( I had it twice ). The tastes were flavorful and portion size was enough to satisfy one's hunger. Needless to say, the Mai Tai's were very good. During our long stay on the Big Island, I will add the remark, that these two meals were the best and most staisfying meals that I had.

Still quite loud, even out on the lanai, but better than inside, where it's almost impossible to carry on a conversation with your table-mates. I am a vegetarian and it would be nice to have a few more options. Normally the mushroom flatbread is good, but it was quite dry this time, with not much topping. Had it last week and it was much better. Two of my party had the small tortilla soup - SMALL being the operative word! Quite ridiculously small...one had one small cube of chicken in it, the other none. You still have not brought back your best dessert - the butterscotch pudding with chocolate ganache. The new chocolate dessert is not very good. Normally TB is better than this visit, but I would still go back. The drinks are great, good bartender.

Fish taco, crab cakes and coconut shrimp were delicious. Salad below average. Crusted chicken and swordfish were very good as well. Chocolate cake and creme brûlée were delicious. Ambience too loud though.

We had a wonderful time. Food was good.
However, we told our waitress we’d like to go slow. After we ordered our meal, the salad we ordered to share was out within 5 minutes. Unbelievable!!!!!! Our entree was there before we could finish the salad we shared.
We always go to this restaurant when we are here.

This was our first time visiting the Big island. We really didn’t know where to go for a great meal. We started out at a five star restaurant which we were totally disappointed in. We went to the shopping center, and noticed the Tommy Bahama store. We had no idea that they had a restaurant so we went for lunch, and we were Wowed! Our server was so wonderful she made us feel right at home. The food was so incredible that we ended up going there 3 more times for dinner, and each time we were blown away by the presentation, and delectable dishes! We highly recommended Tommy Bahamas!

Food was excellent. Loud business men at the table next to we’re obnoxiously loud. We were placed towards the back by the windows and had really no place to move around. Seating could have been better. Over all food was excellent.

お料理の味とコストパフォーマンスが素晴らしいと思いました。特に、帆立と海老のタイ風焼きと、ポキが美味しかったです。店内がとても賑やかで、同じテーブルでも声が聞きとりづらいぐらいだったので、星4つとさせていただきました。

Tommy Bahamas is always good...they never quite honor their reservation times and most of the restaurant is WAY too noisy for Conversation but the food and drinks are consistently good. They stupidly got rid of their best dessert (butterscotch pudding with actual Scotch and chocolate ganache) but otherwise no complaints. Definitely the best place to eat at the Mauna Lani Resort...WAY better than the hotels or any other restaurant.

Good food and great service by Faith. Relaxing outdoor seating with end of sunset views. Coconut shrimp starter, ribeye medium rare was char grilled and delicious, baby back ribs tasty with subtle bbq sauce, broccolini side was delicious as well. Warm, Pull apart bread with a seasoned whipped butter was also tasty and different. Would definitely return.

Always love going to Tommy Bahama's. They never let me down. My 15 year old who is a picky eater couldn't find something on the menu to eat and they were very nice to make him a plain burger with fries! Thank you!

Wow what a wonderful dining experience. We started with the fish tacos a delicious appetizer followed by the entrees of seared marlin and baby back ribs which were so tender they just fell off the bone.
The seared marlin was accompanied by a medley of tender vegetables and rice while the ribs had vegetables as well. We wrapped up dessert with coconut pineapple cream cake and a chocolate lava cake.

Drinks were a Mai Tai and Cranberry Ginger drink both delicious.

I must not leave out the “most” important part and that was our server who was absolutely wonderful. Her name was Faith and as a longer time server there she paid attention to details, service absolutely impeccable, and friendly demeanor. An asset to the organization.
