Humuhumu’s description

Tiki's Grill & Bar opened in 2002 in the heart of Waikiki, in the Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel. It offers a modern take on Polynesian Pop, with lots of art by modern pop artists and carvings. There is both outdoor and indoor seating.

Meh... lacking in mood and vibe. it has that homogenized plastic touristy big box feel.

You know, it's ok. It was across from our hotel last time we were staying in Waikiki, and it was a nice, sunny place to catch a breeze and have a not-that-great mai tai (or the other basics, pre-made mixes, etc.) Not that dark, hidden tiki feel that most of us want, and very spring-break-y feeling, but by all means not the worst place I've ever been. However, I have to give a special shout-out to the ridiculously cute commemorative mugs. One of them had by far THE BEST tiki mug facial expression I've ever seen. And dang if those mugs didn't motivate me to get all four "special" drinks so I could get a full set of the mugs. I'd go back if I was staying at the Marriott again, but I wouldn't make a special trip to it.

The best way I heard it described (by my husband, so credit to him) is that it "feels like some burned-out 80s hair band owns this." And yes. That's exactly it, the Sammy Hagar Effect.

Bar staff was super friendly and pretty quick, and the patrons were fine. Not doing body shots or anything when we were there, but maybe that changes later at night.

Food is OK, on par (quality-wise, not style-wise) with a something like Chili's- inoffensive, but not worth seeking out.

Mai Tai was mediocre, rum selection is awful (Trader Vic's, Kraken, and Myers, and that's it).

Environment is tiki-bar-themed. Lots of the right decor without managing to replicate the feel.
