    Cute bar atmosphere! All in Hawaiian decor and fusion. Great look, food is great and staff is friendly and on their game. I suggest their ribs; delicious as well as the fish sandwich. Good prices too!

    Margarita was terrible, maybe it was just an off day, but it didn't taste anything like it should. Go across the street to Don Pablo's for a proper margarita.

    They are great and down for customizing your order. #nobread for starters. They will even turn it into a wrap if you ask

    As far as appetizers go the Beef Cho Cho is phenomenal. They are skewers of really tender beef that come out seared rare and you finish them off over an open flame at the table

    Atmosphere is really relaxed and menu has a lot of choices that will have you second guessing your first choice - that's a good thing. Come back often and try it all.

    well, they USED to have the best sweet potato fries, but they changed them totally. Buyer beware that they are not the same as they once were. Trader Vics is a cool place - good food overall.
