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.

This place is funny because it is kinda TGIF. But it's also very enjoyable. There are sorta of cheesy cheap qualities but also more legitamate tiki quailities. The TGIF aspects are things like wait staff wearing tikis themed collared shirts. The wait staff being all young and attractive. The outside had football playing on screens etc. Also the mugs are cheap and a few are pretty terrible. But i did get a really cool one which was only a 2 or 3 dollar upgrade to the drink.Which was great. The mai tai I got in it was servicable and better than most of the others i have had in Honolulu so far. The food was actually good compared to most tiki places. Not really tiki themed but tiki themed food is mostly boring or gross. We ate outside......but the legit parts are mostly inside. The decor of the interior is pretty solid. There are boskos and shag prints and tikis everywhere as well as moody lighting and lamps and such. We might go back before the end of our trip..in which case i will nab some photos for you all.

Not horribly bad. But if you're looking for quick and cheap along the lines of a commercialized place, this is for you!
It's a watered down version of a tiki bar that is very mainstream, almost along the lines of Margaritaville. Not fantastic, but not bad.
Our server was fantastic and she played along with us very well. I ordered the Volcano which had a lot of rum and it was kinda creative with the dry ice for the smoke effect.
Again, it wasn't the best rum I've had, but it wasn't a bad drink.
Overall, I think there could be a ton of ideas that can be slung about to give the place some cranked up charm. But I think they are playing host more to the tourists that need a safe place comparable to most generic places throughout the US that have the same cookie-cutter feelings to them (Olive Garden, Black Angus, Outback, etc.).
I loved the staff and the servers. We'll definitely head back as they do rotate mugs according to locals who visit there once in a while.
Mahalo Tiki's!
