My wife, our friends, and I have always visited the Tiki Bar several times every summer. The atmosphere was fun and the food and service used to be great. However, on our last visits, we have seen a change. Some staff were distant and apathetic, others were still great. Our table of six was there for many hours and spent over $150 on drinks alone. The bartender made a simple and understandable mix-up of Coke and Diet Coke. We were not a needy or complaining table, this was our only complaint of the night, after all those drinks and meals. He refused to admit the mistake and would not remix the drink. That is absolutely no way to treat patrons spending $300+ in your establishment. When I made a bigger issue of it I was told by the manager to, “lighten up or find a new bar.” I do believe I will.
I have to admit I just don't get this place. I have been there several times hoping that it will get better and it never does.
The alleged charm of the Tiki Bar is that you can grill your own food. Which means I get to pay real restaurant prices for raw meat that I am allowed to grill - lucky me.
The last time we ate there the food alone was $30 / two people and all we had was kabobs - that we cooked, a baked potato and salad. If you don't want to cook there is nothing else to eat. It is open until midnight but there is not even a bowl of chips or pretzels to be had.
The drinks are pricy especially considering you are drinking out of plastic cups or bottles. The bar service is often slow and inattentive.
Oh and don't bother bringing your teenagers; apparently they have problems monitoring underage drinking so even accompanied minors will be turned away by the staff.
I guess if you still live in your parents basement and don't get to use the kitchen without supervision it might be amusing. But if you want to be treated like a guest and not like unpaid help eat elsewhere.
