Mitiki - since when is Walnut Creek across the estuary from Alameda? Your comments are clearly related to the Oakland version of Tiki Tom's, rather than the one in Walnut Creek that this page is about. And yes, I did actually go to both locations. And I stand by my review of the Oakland location.

As for this Walnut Creek location, I only went once and was not at all impressed by anything except the live hawaiian musicians who were playing the night I was there. The rest of it felt like a very cheap imitation sports/parrot-head (read: not real tiki) restaurant/bar.

This is the only tiki bar out here in the burbs, but my recommendation is to keep driving toward SF if you want a good tiki drink. Its a bar and restaurant, and the tiki decor and location are good. When we stopped in, a nice sounding island band was playing. But what disappoints are the drinks. The new owner actually re-made the menu (snazzy art, cute story printed on the back) and parred it down to 11 drinks with promising names: Menehune, Tsunami Slammer, Caribbean Hummer, Okole Maluna, Lava Flow, Kilauea Fire Bowl, Hai Tai, Cantiki, Coconut Monkey and Hula Bula. I have found some drinks to be far too alcoholic (Hai Tai) and others left me wondering if the bartender used any alcohol at all (Lava Flow). Many ingredients are not traditional tiki: Absolut Vanilla, Parrot Bay Key Lime Rum, Skyy Raspberry, Smirnoff Orange, Absolut Pear Vodka). And despite the promise of fresh fruit juices, the drinks are more candy-like than refreshing. The subtle complexities of a well-balanced drink tradition of Don the Beachcomber or Trader Vic are simply absent. Beware that right around 10 p.m., the clientele turns over to young 20-somethings drinking bottled beer.
