I finally know why Trader Vic's has been an Atlanta Institution for so long. The food is quite delicious (if a bit pricey). The kitschy decor is super fun, and the service was quite good.

The food was pretty good but way overpriced. The service was friendly but way too slow. It has a nice atmosphere.

COVID has really put a damper on this place. Severely cut menu and high prices comparatively speaking. Place was dead.

Trader Vic’s is the best place I’ve been to in Atlanta. Maybe anywhere! The decor and ambience cannot be beat. Service was excellent.

This restaurant truly embodies the Tiki spirit, and seems a bit out of place in Atlanta. With low ceilings, labyrinthine teaky corridors, dim light, and two huge burning kilns in the middle of the place, Trader Vic’s transports you to an Indonesian island while in the heart of a land-locked city.

Great little hidden restaurant! Decor is incredible, and service, drinks, and food were all great! Only issues were the entrees were a bit pricy, and theres a huge lack of vegetarian options (casually just two salads and one appetizer). But otherwise great!

This is a classic tiki bar, if you have never had a real mai tai you haven't lived.

Trader Vic’s is a nice dinner option if you are staying at the Hilton Atlanta. It’s located within so you don’t have to travel around the city. The food was fairly good and unique. The Venue is cozy and themed which adds to the comfort level.

Shining gold stars for M and S, your very professional and friendly bartenders. They are a super asset to your business. Shining star drink: Mai Tai…can’t be duplicated anywhere but at Trader Vic restaurants (believe me we’ve tried!) Shining star food: the fried rice entree dish…oh yum!
We’ve been visiting Traders all over the US, including big Daddy Emryville for over 50 years, and general tiki bars as well. We are always delighted to join you in Atlanta. Thanks!

Ordered the PuPu platter and fried rice for dinner along with a Mai Tai drink. The drink was tasty. The PuPu platter had fried vegetable egg rolls (best thing about them was they were piping hot) and chicken skewers, beef skewers and pot stickers, all of which were lukewarm and mediocre. The fried rice was just OK. Overall, a disappointing meal.

I have recently developed an obsession with tiki bars and this is the best one I've seen by far. It's one of the last Trader Vic's that was established and designed by the original owner, Vic Bergeron. The amazing decor alone is a reason to visit. The mai-tais are obviously delicious because the drink originated at Trader Vic's, but the fogcutter is a wonderful selection that comes out in a huge, hand-painted tiki mug. The food was incredible, even though the outdoor ovens were closed due to Covid and the menu was limited. I highly recommend the lamb chops and the wonton soup. I will definitely be back to try more of the menu. I would recommend Trader Vic's for almost any occasion from date night to group gatherings. There was also outdoor seating available, which is a great option during these trying times!

We were overwhelmed with how great the staff is at Trader Vics! Not inky were they super accommodating when our 12 person reservation suddenly increased to 15 due to last minute friends showing. Without hesitation Trader Vics' staff jumped in to ensure everyone was welcome and provided outstanding service! And the food ; what can I say. It was delicious. Great portion size, wonderful appearance, and kudos from all who had dinner with us.
But now onto the drinks. Wow. So many choices, so tasty, GREAT prices, and to be honest, super strong! Love Trader Vics' drimk menu!
We will definitely return, and bring even more guests!

Had a dinner for 6 during Dragon*Con Thursday, which is an exceptionally trying time for any restaurant or hotel in the vicinity, especially during Covid. Trader Vic’s is always a real treat, and during Covid, it’s also probably the most challenging time any hotel restaurant manager and staff has ever had to go through. Trader Vic’s was aces — great food, great Mai Tai’s, great service, all at a time when everything is stressful and going against them. Well done, and I look forward to many happy returns!

Always love Trader Vic’s. Fabulous atmosphere and there is a lot of tiki history here. The drinks are an event all by themselves. I do wish they would start using the clay ovens again and be open on Sundays.

I think the restaurant must be short staffed and I can appreciate how hard everyone was working. Having said that my party of one took 15 minutes to request menus after sitting, 30 minutes to get a drink, and nearly 50 minutes to get the appetizer. After an hour and a 15 minutes my entree arrived. The food was good but by then I promptly boxed it and took it back to my room.
