    Great service!!! World's best/smoked looks amazing... they showed the process when I asked about it even after saying I didn't want a 25 drink. Both mai tais on the menu are great and worth the money.

    I went here with my wife when we had the wedding. We had "royal scratch Mai tai". At night , there is some performance such as dancing and singing, which makes the atmosphere so great.

    I asked for extra lemon wedge for my vodka soda and bartender did me one better - brought the press over and squeezed it right into drink! Great tenders :)

    Get here early for the best seats! Best view for evening cocktails. Wine is a bit weak, but they do offer the wine list from azure as an alternative

    You may have to wait but getting a table near the sand is definitely worth it. Enjoy the views facing the hotels after dark.

    Pricey hotel bar drinks but 100% worth every penny. Their mai tais are strong and made with freshly squeezed juices!

    Pretty expensive eats including the bar menu. However, it's in a great location and is a good spot to get a cocktail and view the beach.

    The "real mai tai" will knock you down!!! $10 a drink but a great value because they actually put alcohol in it. Girls, drink slowly!!

    A cocktail here watching the sunset is a must ... not so kid friendly but sometimes you just need to drag the ankle biters to something you like to do Read more

    If ordering the Virgin Piña Rocks, make sure the server hears you want your drink *without* alcohol (as the name/menu suggests)!

    Ask Christopher to tell you the history of the Mai Tai, and make you the real deal with 17 yr aged booze and falernum!

    Smoked Mai Tai isn't on the menu, but it's quite a show to see the bar tenders make it. It's an expensive specialty cocktail but worth the novelty.

    The old-school/Trader Vic/Beachcomber mai tai is off-menu, but it's the best one on Waikiki.

    The drinks that spill on the floor over time makes this place ideal for skanking. Bring shoes.

    Order the Scratch Mai Tai. It's the best on the menu. All the more expensive ones are for tourists who don't know better.

    The pink beer is no more. The waitress said the brewery that made it for them is out of business. So much for that novelty. Drinks here priced at a premium, but worth it. No watered down crap here.
