Humuhumu’s description

Solomons Island Tiki Bar opened in 1980, and is a more 80s-style tiki bar -- it's open-air, heavy on the party, and light on the tiki. There have been more additions of tikiness starting in early 2006, of particular note is the addition of many Bosko carvings and a couple large moai. It's open seasonally, from April through October, and opening day is a major event, drawing up to 10,000 people.
The bar started as an addition to the Island Manor Hotel, by original owners John and Kathy Taylor. New owners in 2005 have removed the hotel to expand the bar into a restaurant, and to accomodate the Tiki Bar's massive weekend crowds; these new owners are responsible for the stronger emphasis on tiki. A small store has been added that sells t-shirts, sweatshirts and mass-produced modern tiki items.

Tiki in name only. This is a turn of the century tiki joint.... near the water with some roof thatching... not much else that tikiphiles expect in a real tiki bar.

This is more a beach (marina) front bar opened in the summer with an abundance of outdoor seating. It's a great place to hang, get something to eat, but don't expect to get a jet pilot... nor even a mai tai that isn't from a commercial bottled mix. Still the beer is cheap, bar is stocked and the weather is usually nice.

The owner of the Tiki Bar in Solomon's passed away and it remains CLOSED for the 2018 season. Here is the real estate listing from the family that is trying to sell the place. A number of people have reportedly tried to work out a deal, but nothing has worked out yet. The neighbors have historically been very anti-Tiki Bar.
