Made a reservation and was placed in the Bar by the kitchen, not too impressive. Bar guy was too busy and if the hostess hadn't seen me shrugging my shoulders looking around for the waiter.... we probably would still have died of thirst ( 10-13 minute wait drink replenish could happen)! She came in fast to see how we were doing and corrected it quickly.

The worst service ever! Not only did we not have anyone wait on us but when we did the time was over 45 minutes and still no food delivered We left and paid for our drinks and the manager never said their were sorry only excuse we are busy. Have never walked out on a restaurant in over 35 years. Good luck going here!

We met with friends from the Main Land and they were impressed with the food. It’s often hard to impress visitors from San Francisco, but TB’s manages to deliver great food every time. Mahalo.

Great food, extremely SLOW service
Arrived at 12:45p and were seated immediately. By 1:30, all we had been served was iced tea. When our food finally arrived a little before 2:00 it was good. Caesar salad with chicken was okay; fish and chips were very good. Would we go back? Sure, if we had 2+ hours to spend for lunch and weren’t starving.

We had tried the bar for happy hour and enjoyed it although the appys choice is limited. We took friends for dinner on this occasion and were disappointed. The food was just average, very expensive and again limited in choice.
The service was also just average. The location is great and the ambiance is good.
We will only go back for happy hour.

We enjoyed a nice family dinner out on the lanai. The coconut shrimp and duo cheese appetizers were delicious. All of our meals (mostly steaks) were perfectly cooked and seasoned. The key lime pie was a scrumptious finish to our meal.

Beautiful location with subpar service and food that is horribly overpriced. The waiter did not know simple preparation questions about the dishes. The pasta special was $41.00. Has higher hopes that unfortunately fell short.

We had an excellent experience at Tommy Bahama on the Big Island and would highly recommend this for families and groups. We celebrated New Year's Eve dinner and loved the ambiance, the vast menu and the overall venue. The food was excellent and a good value on Hawaii terms! Thanks for a great evening Tommy Bahama!

Loved the service filled with Aloha! Sasha, our waitress, was superb! The fillet mignon was thick, tender and you could cut it with a fork! Macadamia nut crusted ahi was cooked just perfectly! Beverages were excellent! New Years' Birthday was fire-crackin' over-the-top! Ten 💫!

Service very good. Food came quickly and was tasty. 2nd time we've been (same time last year) which is busiest time of year on the island and it showed. We waited 15 min. past our reservation time to be seated and restaurant was VERY crowded and loud. But, we'll be back....

The meal was great until the fish arrived. Mine was cooked just right, my husbands was raw inside. They made it right, got a brand new plating, I had to eat while he waited for his new plate, but the wait staff was very apologetic and the manager stopped by twice to see if things were good and comped us out dessert....all in all a good time, good music and the mistake was corrected. We live here and will continue to go because of this attitude! Thanks for a good night.

We’ve always loved TB ...unfortunately they were out of many food items including simple things like lemonade . We had requested sitting outside , sat inside in dark corner . Waiter was very nice and tried His very best. Shrimp curry dish was just ok...
Nothing special.
Hope they can plan ahead better for busy seasonal crowds .

We were a party of 6 with 2 children.

Server was nice but poor at her job. Didn’t bring kids menus, didn’t bring kids cups, didn’t bring specials card, forgot one of the drinks, never returned for water refills. She was sweet but needs training.

The food was mostly very good. The Ahi and Tuna Taco dish were very well executed. The burger tasted like a previously frozen previously formed party and you would expect more at this price point

We love having our yearly Christmas Eve tradition dinner at Tommy Bahamas in the Mauna Lani shopping center. The entire staff, bartenders, hostess, waiters (waitresses) and managers we have had over the years are all professional and friendly. I always make sure to thanks each one of them for working whenever they could be with their families. We also come there for happy hours which are great. The happy hour food selection is all delicious.
