    Another wonderful, satisfying meal at Tommy Bahamas Mauna Lani. I truly appreciated out server, she was very attentive and looked into special requests we had. I have to eat gluten free, and about 2 years ago, our server then, told me they had a GF bread I could get when everyone else was getting the regular bread roll served before the meal. I inquired if this was still available and was served a nice size GF domed shaped bread roll. Very, very good. My ribs, my usual, were delicious as well as the pork chop with bacon wrapped shrimp. I asked to substitute the mashed potatoes which came with my ribs, to the almond rice. I love their almond rice. We shared the ahi poke with taro chips, really, really good!! Overall, wonderful post mother's day celebration. We topped it off with the chocolate crumb cake (not sure if that is the name of it) Mahalo nui loa.

    Very noisy! Really no vegan options. I ordered the cauliflower without cheese and considering the portion it was too expensive. So many people are vegan now and most restaurants offer more options. I won’t go out of my way to eat here again.

    We actually popped in for a quick lunch snack after golf and decided to return fir dinner. My husband had the pork chop special and was super impressed. It was a huge chop that was beer brined and very tender. I had the ribs and the flavor was good but the char was a bit too heavy and the slaw was underdressed. Had two of their specialty martinis and they were really good. Service was very good though, attentive, polite and prompt.

    In our opinion this is one of the best restaurants on the Kailua Kona side of the Big Island! We started with the coconut shrimp followed by the filet, all cooked to perfection. Very friendly attentive staff, this is our ‘go to’ restaurant for many different occasions, as an island resident we are thrilled Tommy Bahamas is on the island!

    Everything was really great except my cocktail. The Mai Tai was very disappointing, its something I would find in the Midwest of the mainland. I expected something more creative considering it is an island favorite. May check out what Merrimans offers.

    Nice restaurant and good meals and drinks. There’s a Tommy Bahama store right below the restaurant. The view is of the parking lot, but the location is ideal if you’re staying at the Fairmont Orchid or that general area.

    Tommy Bahamas never disappoints. Food is always excellent. Servers are hit and miss on if you get a great one or a not so great one. Food is expensive, but as Hawaii goes it is not AS expensive. Go during 4-5 pm, which is Happy Hour, to get 30-50% off on drinks. However, make sure to request in your reservation a designated Happy Hour table and then again when you arrive request Happy Hour seating, otherwise they won’t give you Happy Hour pricing. Be sure to make a reservation any which way you wish to dine because you won’t get in without one unless you get really lucky, Tommy’s is always packed. Also, be careful on hot summer days during daylight hours to request a table out of the sun or at least bring your sun glasses; it can get bright and hot at about 50% of the tables.

    It was lovely but our reserved table was outside and the rain chance was high which we didn't want to eat in the rainso they put us in other section with booths. Ruined the ambiance for me. I wish I had been in the other section

    Nice ambiance, excellent food. Exemplary service by Terra S. She was kind, patient with questions, quick to suggest accommodations to my allergies. At a few points it was loud, and she bent down to make sure we could hear each other. We both got tamarind mahi mahi which was excellent. They also had an acoustic guitar and vocal artist who was exceptional. Manager came by to greet us and check how were things. . Only downside was some of the other customers were entitled and off putting, yet very impressed how kind friendly staff were. Very nice experience!!
