Not a diss, just a fact. If you're eating coconut shrimp in a place called the Tiki Grill, you're deep into the realm mass kitsch bulk feeding.

So how were those coconut shrimp and touristic cocktails? Perfectly fine, and fairly priced, given the location. Service is friendly and professional with lots of prefab rehearsed and well trained lines like, "The MaiTai is our most popular cocktail". For the crush of a crowd that packs in daily, I am not comprehending the persnickety complaints.

The Tiki vibe/art is better than you'd expect. The slack guitar band at happy hour with great drink specials means that you should probably hit it at 4:30 rather than an hour later.

Expensive restaurant. Food ok but purple bread. Purple burger buns, eyes and brain hated the sight. Waitress overbearing and cocky. Wine by the glass my cheaper choice of Sauvignon blanc not available had to buy more expensive wine by the glass how convenient for them. Sticky tables and dirty internal windows. I wrote on it with finger please wash me before I left. There Fantastic cheaper restaurants locally. Avoid.

While not rude the wait staff looked to be going through the motions. Our waiter while polite was not very personable and was very soft spoken. The Thai Style Shrimp Puttanesca was not very tasty, as something was missing with its taste. Lots of pasta and shrimp but just not delicious. Service was way better in the past. Looks like the bar is the hot spot. Restaurant has more a kid friendly, family feel.

The Hawaiian band drew our attention and we wanted to listen more so we took seats at the bar. The music drew us in but Kevin our bartender kept us there with his friendly conversation and spot on drink recommendations. We didn’t eat but the food going by on serving trays looked good. Thank you Kevin!

Fun place to go, beautiful view of Waikiki beach and the ocean. Had two meals there while visiting, both times the food was excellent. Would recommend a visit there to anyone! Besides, how can you pass up enjoying a tropical drink in a tiki glass?
