We had a party of four, everyone enjoyed their meal. Pina Very nice ambiance. It’s a second floor restaurant but they have easy elevator access. Can be a bit noisy depending who your neighbors are.

We had a great waiter (David) and well prepared food. We split some dishes and they were served already on individual plates (no added cost). Well above our expectations. Highly recommended. Reasonable prices (for Hawaii).

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The fillet was very good and the cauliflower mashed a first for me. Macadamia Mahi Mahi was superb. Cocktails very good. Good service, some live music and a nice local. A nice place to dine out.

This was our first visit while visiting the big island. Wonderful! Although it was windy outside, we chose to sit out there to watch the sunset. Lucky us. The building blocked the wind and we enjoyed a fabulous dinner. The food, service and even the live music from inside that was piped in from the outside was great. Love this place and look forward to going back one day.

Wonderful dinner, wonderful waiter, although the time it took to get our meal was far longer than should be. It was great, but the wait time was far too long and unacceptable.

We found the life music pleasant but way to loud, it just culminated in a very noisy place. We have had better mojitos, not their stronghold! As appetizer wehad the ahi tacos, they wheregreat! As entree we had theSchrimp and Scallops Thai, they were also great! Overall good food, not so good cocktails and a bit to loud!

It was our last night in Hawaii and didn’t feel like going too far. The restaurant was very near our resort. Both of our dinners were probably the tastiest we had all week! Our pitcher of Sangria was so good! Our waiter was very patient and kind! If we come back to the Big Island we will definitely come back more than once!

Visiting the Big Island and looking for great food close to our resort. Menu looked great and the food and service did not disappoint. The shrimp spring rolls were excellent, my husband loved his porterhouse cut pork chop and the macadamia encrusted Mahi-mahi was delicious! Unfortunately too full to try dessert but they looked and sounded amazing. The coffee as a finisher was hot & strong just the way we like it. My husband’s dirty martinis to his taste and the lemon drop was perfectly tart ( the wine list looked good too).

I was on vacation for a short week and managed to have two dinners and one lunch at the restaurant. I always eat there when visiting and have never been disappointed. Staff, food, service all excellent. I can easily recommend Tommy Bahamas not only for their food but for the shopping downstairs as well. Great concept. Mahalo 😀🌴🍍

Service was sporadic. Clear miscommunications going on amongst waitstaff and kitchen. Fish was great. A filet was nearly burnt on one side. Server had some attitude —a turnoff and rudest waiter we have experienced in Hawaii.

Roy's never disappoints. Friends have been keeping a running tally of food and drink on the Big Island and Roy's topped the list from Mai Tai's to entrees. Special fresh catch Mong Chong and Mahi were well prepared and actually were fresh. Savorys were exceptional and the soufflé was anticipated and perfect.

We needed a nice place for our last lunch on the Big Island and immediately decided on TB’s because we had a wonderful dinner a few nights earlier.

Had a great conversation with the manager.

The goat cheese appetizer was great - as was the fish & chips dish we shared.

Highly recommended!

I have always loved going to Tommy Bahama restaurants, but this was my least favorite. The dining area was not the best. It was windy that nite so we requested indoor dining and given a table in a less than acceptable corridor. I think they need a designer from their Palm Desert TB. Food was good, service always exceptional, ambience ruined the entire eve.
