    Two open seats at the bar so we grabbed them after asking the local girl bar assistant if that was OK. She said fine, but when we sat down it seemed like she didn't really want to serve us. We were met with curt responses, I was glad when another person behind the bar came up and took our order. All other wait help was just fine, fun and polite like we're used to. I guess we caught that local girl at a bad time. They do seem to be understaffed, but still, if you're working do it with a smile a be courteous.

    Great find! Three of us dined there on our last day in Waikoloa - we absolutely loved it. Everything we ordered was fantastic. Favorites were carmelized cauliflower, parmesan wings, chicken tortilla soup and Thai scallops and shrimp. Oh, and the desserts!!!! Key lime pie and crème brûlée in roasted coconut were to die for! Will definitely be back next time we are in the area.

    We live on the Big Island. Tommy Bahama is our go-to for special occasions, like Father's Day, since we can't get in to many other restaurants, due to tourist crowds. Tommy Bahama is a spacious, well-managed establishment that handles crowds with aplomb. While other eateries on this island struggle to hire staff, Tommy Bahama seems to have fewer problems, perhaps due to better management practices, pay, or benefits. The food is always GOOD, just not FABULOUS. Know that going in. For example, our crab cake starter was a bit tepid and mushy, although the crab mix itself was excellent. I think they rushed the grilling process. For my entree, I ordered the mahi mahi with tamarind pineapple glaze. The fish was very well prepared. The sauce was tasty but lacked the punch that a bigger dose of tamarind could provide. The spice level was so mild, I felt that the dish could use more heat. My grilled asparagus side was almost raw. My husband ordered the swordfish with shrimp pasta. He enjoyed the shrimp pasta greatly but found the swordfish a bit bland/boring. For dessert we overdid it with a double slice of the signature pineapple cake. Delicious stuff. Don't get me wrong, overall, you can always count on Tommy Bahama to deliver excellent service, fun surroundings, and GOOD food. Not FABULOUS. Good. The manager almost always stops by to greet guests. Oh, by the way, they used to have umbrellas out on the back patio but evidently they kept snapping in the breezes. Before sunset, best tables are inside by the windows.

    We love the food and the reasonable prices. The only drawback to eating here is the noise factor. It is difficult to talk to the person across the table without raising your voice. But we will keep coming back, we love the food, service, and reasonable prices.

    Started out beautiful. Everyone knows us because we live in the area and go the TB regularly. Everything was perfect until the bill came … we used our 50.00 coupon and the waitress started to argue w us that we didn’t spend 100.00. We did and know that alcohol is not part OC the 100. After much negativity we left showing the details and we did meet the 100 commitment My husband was over the edge and contacted the manager to discuss the situation We did spend the needed amount of &100 Manager apologized!!! Still ruined the evening !!

    It was very noisy! That being said, it was a very pleasant visit. Joanne was our server, and she made it a memorable occasion. She seems to enjoy her work and loves to laugh! Everyone we interacted with was pleasant and helpful. The food was fresh and very enjoyable. The chef accommodated my wife’s dietary requests. We will go back again when we return to the Big Island.

    On vacation on the Big Island of Hawaii. Customer service was terrific. But what happened to the Bungalow salad? I have had it in the past both at this location and in Wakikiand loved it. This was lackluster at best.

    It is the only restaurant in the Mauna Lani Resort, so it's busy. While the name implies higher quality, it's just an average restaurant. BTW, don't order the Blood Orange Margarita. Mine tasted strange (blood orange liquor has a very unique taste) so on our way out I stepped by the bar and asked the bartender to show me their blood orange liquor. She said "I'm sorry but we couldn't get any." Apparently, they just used Orange Juice and colored it with Grenadine for my drink. (I still wonder why they didn't tell me that when I ordered my drink?)

    I wish I could give a bonus star for the service. Jamie and Jason were terrific! We've loved Tommy's for a long time but were unpleasantly surprised by the menu changes. The food tasted great but there are some favorites no longer on the menu like the scallop sliders. We will go back because we love it but could only give it 4 stars because of the menu. Everything else was 5++.
