Humuhumu’s description

Two-story tiki bar and Polynesian restaurant in Orlando's Wall Street Plaza, owned by a developer who owns six other clubs in the complex. Waitiki opened in August of 2004, and features a bar made of antique ironwood, outdoor balconies, many wood carvings and teak flooring. It is not an immersive tiki environment, but there is much artwork from modern-day tiki artists like Flounder, Joe & Donella Vitale and local tiki carver Wayne Coombs

. Tropical cocktails are available, and the food is a more modern take on Polynesian cuisine, with a focus on seafood.

There are some amazing pieces of art here, including what I believe to be an original Leeteg which has been cropped down from its original size, some Flounders, Vitales (J&D) and some interesting carved tikis.
That said, it's still not a tiki bar. The drinks were almost undrinkable (sickly sweet and hot with booze), the music was putrid and loud, they had the basketball game on (which sadly eclipsed the beauty of the pufferfish lamps) and it was, at the time we were there this evening, hosting the (I'm not making this up) 'Beer Olympics' outside.
The upstairs Lounge is decorated rather nicely in mid-century modern with a few tiki injections and is a great space with a lovely deck. Sadly it was closed for a private function when we were there but it had a much better vibe than downstairs. Or maybe it was just because it was empty. :/

I was there about a year ago. It's a regular bar in Tiki clothing. Some of the decor is great, but one can't escape the homogenized corporate feeling.

The decor is nice, it looks like it should be Tiki, but it ain't. Music playing was country western, the menu is eclectic bar food, waitress recommended the cheese steak (so-so), and the drinks were fruit juice sweet. Skip it and head over to Disney's Polynesian.
