Wonderful bar with a great selection of drinks. Sit back and enjoy the view of the beach, Diamond Head or just watch the passing parade of people. Very relaxing listening to the live music provided in the background. Well worth a visit.

You can't go to Mai Tai bar without getting a Mai Tai! It's simply a must. All of the ingredients are are blended perfectly and makes the drink really good.

Hi, I had the short rib French dip sandwich and it was very good. My hubby had a burger, he also said it was good. Be aware, it is pricey, and the service was slow, but we enjoyed it none the less.
