We went as a delayed birthday dinner (We had been on Kauai during the flooding and had to cancel 90% of our plans). Came to spend 5 days at the Mauna Lani and made dinner plans. A totally delightful evening from beginning to end! Bonnie was an absolutely wonderful server, she is a gem! And Larry, what can we say about Larry? He played along with us in a random song game we created and made the evening that much more enjoyable. It was truly a night we will always remember and will talk about over and over. Oh, and the sunset!!!!!! Just.... wow... Thank you!

Always a great place to go in the resorts. Food is always dependable and delicious, the service is always good and we always have a good time with the live music. It's a very nice place to spend an evening.

お店の雰囲気はおしゃれでとても可愛かったです。
お料理は、どれを頼んでも美味しく、ハズレはありませんでした。
テーブルの担当の方も、とても親切で、フレンドリーで最高の時間を過ごせました。
少し賑やかですので、楽しくお喋りしながらのお食事には向いていると思います。
またハワイ島に来た時は、こちらにまた行きたいと思えるレストランでした。

Upsetting that we were told they don’t take Open Table rewards. Open table and the restaurant needs to figure out which one it is. Very inconsistent.

We have been eating here for about 8 years and have been in here many times. TB's has always been a reliable (albeit expensive ) place to go and we know a lot of the staff and usually we get good, fun service..

Some locals joke that "Tommy's" is the "Applebees" of the big island.. chain restaurant.. consistent etc.. But lately the comparison is way too similar.. the place feels run down.. they repalced the old chairs with faux leatherish (pleather?) covered tiny chairs that are too light colored and are now stained, and way too small.. the tables are beat up.. even the once sparkling rest rooms are dirty .. menu items read great but the food is served somewhat uninspired and the place feels very much like a tourist trap..

Still some smiling faces there we know and love but man.. it no longer is a place the family looks forward to.. (and my wife and I ate there every friday until we moved mauka) and it is way expensive... lunch is not terrible but hard for a family of 5 to eat there for under $200.. crazy.

THere are other options in same plaza that serve better food for less money...

I am hoping they figure it out and clean the place back up.. they need to do a refresh and reopen..

Tommy Bahama Restaurant certainly serves some of the best food on the Big Island. Their extensive menu offers something for every palate. In addition, there is always live music for dinner. Their service is excellent. Highly recommended.

The food and service has always been excellent. We've been coming here since they opened, well worth the drive from Kailua Kona. We have some favorites on the menu, it's difficult not ordering them when we get there. It takes us a little over an hour from town. We'll be back next month.

The hostess made us wait for 15 minutes past our reservation time, then sat us in the direct sun and would not let us move an umbrella to shield ourselves.
The food was not nearly as good as the last time we ate at TB over a year ago.
The place needs a overhaul or at least a refresh.

The food was good once we got it. The server seemed scattered I was asked twice what my drink order was as he forgot. Then my son wanted a refill on his Pepsi. He got root beer. Afterwards he came back to the table and had forgotten what my husband had ordered. When our food came out. The appetizer was missing. Only one of our three orders was correct. I had ordered a salad and I received a salmon. The waiter came back after our order was sent back to kitchen and asked what we had ordered again. The bill was incorrect and had the salmon on it also. As for ambience the air conditioning vent kept dripping on us. We may go back for the food as that was good but the rest was seriously lacking.

As usual we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Sometimes we go for the full gamut, sometimes we refrain depending on our moods. Well on Saturday night we went for the full gamut and it was superb! Many thanks for keeping your service and food excellent, always fresh always delicioius.

Excellent food and service. I was skeptical that a branded restaurant like this could prepare good food, but it was delicious and despite a full restaurant, service was good and everything moved well. They even gave us postcards and put them in the mail for us as a fun courtesy.

We have been to this Tommy Bahamas at least 20 times. We love the food, service and ambience. However, this past visit was disappointing. We were seated in the front by the reception and tucked away despite there being open tables around us and in the main dining area. I realize that restaurants need to distribute tables for waitress workloads but it made me feel that we were placed here because we booked with Open Table. I hope that I am wrong. Secondly, our service was average at best which is usually fantastic. We ordered PinaColada cake to go and we were given the wrong size. Not a big deal but it just added to the overall mood of the evening. Just disappointing when you save this wonderful cake for breakfast (yes... it’s fantastic for breakfast lol) and you find a small sliver of cake instead of the larger piece you were expecting. Mostly, we were disappointed in the changes in the menu. Gone is our favourite wine. Gone is the Poke Napoleon, my daughter’s favourite.
Don’t get me wrong... the food was still great, service was average and the ambience was average where we were seated BUT you are paying dearly for average. Our bill was $260 before tip for 2 adults, a 10 yr old who ordered from the kids menu and a 12 yr old. I’m not sure that we will be rushing back. There are too many other great restaurants in the vicinity that are s better experience for the dollar.

Amazing from start to finish! David was our fantastic waiter who helped make this a magnificent meal. The chicken tortilla soup -delicious, the ribs - delicious, the macadamia crusted mahi mahi - delicious, even the kids Mac and cheese was great, then there was the chocolate Oreo toffee dessert that ranks up there with the best ever! Best food we have found on the island so far by a mile! Highly recommend.
