Humuhumu’s description:
Large family restaurant in Glendale, with a bar in the rear. This is Damon's second location; the original was opened in 1937, and this location opened in 1980. A short list of tropical drinks is offered, and food sticks to old-school, meaty classics. The food quality improved a bit with the arrival of a new owner and chef in 2004. The decor is more on the elegant end of Polynesian Pop, with lots of bamboo and beautiful painted murals, and lighting comes from a number of different styles of traditional Poly-Pop light fixtures. In 2014, Bamboo Ben was brought in to do a "tune-up" of the decor, with some fresh thatch, tapa cloth, and bamboo and rope repair work. In the past, it has been targeted by the city of Glendale for an "update" of its facade, but that danger seems to have passed.
There's a parking lot behind Damon's, but it's metered, as is the neighborhood street parking. There is free parking for 90 minutes in the parking structure nearby at California & Orange.

Damon's is a GREAT little gem tucked away up north in Glendale. I always seem to end up here on weekends and I love the food here! The Mai Tais + Chi Chi's are pretty tasty and they're not anything fantastic, but they WORK. The Steaks are tasty and the twice baked potato is to DIE for.

Definitely give this place a shot, and you'll be pleasantly surprised at it's TIKI-ness.

I took my wife to Damon's and it was tiki-licious! Chi Chi's & May Tais were off the hook and the char filet & thick cut tenderloin was on point! Our waitresses was awesome

Damon's Hawaiian Decor is incredible. Made a visit last weekend and it all remains the same. I loved going in there and just checking it out.

just had dinner with family, definitely one of the best tiki places in the country. 70 years must mean something is being done right and it shows
