    Drinks only, so food might be good who knows. Great drinks and service. The place is a little cold. The staff should monitor the temperature a little better. Otherwise very good.

    They need a service overhaul. made a reservation. Arrived. had to track down a server who said "Sure just go there." Waited around 20 minutes for a beer. Even longer for a cocktail. Our server came up telling us he was finishing his shift so we closed out with him. No other server replaced him so we just left.

    Food and drinks are too expensive for what you get. The menu is also really small and not accommodating to our vegetarian friend. Drinks took forever to come out. The server didnt give us back our debit card after we paid and when we asked for it, it was suddenly lost and they couldn’t find it. We had to cancel the card and order a new one.

    The band playing was so sound it was insane, I could not even hear people screaming at me trying to talk to me because it was so loud, other than that the drinks are always good and the sliders were amazing, but it would’ve been more enjoyable if the music wasn’t destroying my ears

    My girlfriends and I were looking forward to a night out after such a long time not seeing each other. I have been here a few times before so I recommended this place, unfortunately the experience wasn't a good one. We made a reservation with ample time and were so excited. When we arrived there was no one at the door to greet us like there usually is, I thought well maybe because they're not busy no one is there. We talked to the bar tender and he said we can order drinks with him but need to wait for the manager to come down so we can be seated. We ordered a drink at the bar and waited. Every time we saw someone new that looked like they worked there we asked just to be told they didn't work there and were only there to work the event. About an hour passed and still nothing, so we asked the bar tender again if we could just be seated and finally were given the ok. As soon as we sat down we were told by one of the women hosting the event that we couldn't sit there because we didn't pay the fee. Thankfully by that point the bar tender took enough pity on us to tell her she couldn't move us. We waited another 20-25 minutes to be attended at our table and nothing happened so at this point we decided to go somewhere else. Overall the 1 round of drinks we got at the bar were delicious. The bartender was great and overworked but trying his best. We never saw the manager and didn't see anyone else that worked there, aside from the event employees. Unfortunately I don't think we will be coming here anytime soon.

    First of all the place is beautifully decorated. We traveled two hours to go here with such a disappointment. We had reservations but no host and all booth were taken. So we found a table near back area away from stage. Our server came over about 30 mins after waiting and seemed very bothered to be working. We ordered drinks and food all at once, he started to talk to us like we were young adults and gave us rules on drinking…. Now our group was in there mid 40’s and 50’s. Then about 10 mins later he asked if we could move for a reservation, but we were also a reservation so I didn’t understand. Normally I would have but he wanted to put us right in front of the live band, we were a group of 7 and talking so we said no because we wouldn’t be able to hear eachother. He was very upset. Our drinks and food were brought out and we went about an hour and a half we no sight of our server. He went behind bar and never came back. We were planing on having some drinks and having fun but never ordered more rounds. A waste of time, service sucks!!!!

    Horrible, on new years day I looked on their website and saw that they open at 4 PM and made a reservation for 515. I spent $30 on an Uber and showed up at five and the doors were closed. I called their phone and the lady answered and I asked why they were closed and she said that they open at 8 PM and that she canceled all the reservations, the day before, but I had made a reservation that day, and received no email stating that they would be closed. Luckily, there is another tiki bar around the corner called bamboo club. I can never go there again or trust that they would be open.

    Apparently you don't need a reservation because the staff looked at us like we were crazy.The waitress we had and she was the only one, did not even know what food was available to eat.

    It was a fun experience! It's a little difficult to find, but if you just go down the stairs in front of Shannon's and follow the path, you'll run into it. It's a really cute bar with great drinks. Not much to the menu, but I heard the pineapple rice is really good. Fully Tiki'd out & have late entertainment.

    We visited from the East Coast and wanted a fun night. The staff was very short and rude to us when we got there and wouldn’t give us a table. It was very loud in there, very cool vibe. They said they don’t take open table reservations… when we got there and tried to eat, they told us they weren’t serving food anymore and wouldn’t come to our table to even get our drink orders.

    Came with reservations and was told to wait in the back...while several groups of people walked past and just sat in empty tables. I was met with a super argumentative host who gave me a schpeel about how people without reservations who get kicked off tabled leave bad reviews and how people with reservations leave bad reviews for having to wait. Long story short, he stated that they no longer use the online reservation system. THEN WHY HAVE IT AS AN OPTION??? Well....if you make and confirm a reservation, I can see how one could be upset for having to wait for a table while others just stroll on in. The table we finally got was a ridiculous setup, against a column and right behind the bar where everyone bumped us from every angle and the chairs were so shaky I refused to sit on them completely. We finally found a short table nearby and jumped to it so we could avoid being hit and were met with ridiculous aggression from the host again who asked if we had informed the server that we moved. Jokes on us, we had sat at the last table for 20 minutes and never got a server. So....we enjoy our short table and notice a booth open and hop over and again get verbally attacked for moving tables and another ridiculous argument about how these tables are reserved. I explain we had a reservations for a booth and were given a makeshift table while everyone else just walked into an empty booth and again were asked if we informed our server..... Who we still hadn't seen. So we finally ordered vodka sodas from our server and they bring us titos and sodas....I'm sure an upcharge from well but we shall see and at this point, I'm done fighting and I just want to enjoy the company and the drinks we were able to get. Anyhow this night of enjoying a great band and our friends' company who drove from quite a distance was tainted by the BS attitude from the host. We won't be back. We should've known from attending events here in the past. It's a shame

    Worst experience I have ever had. They were low staffed so I gave them the benefit of the doubt and was patient. When the server finally came around to take our order she asked for a card to hold on file so I gave her mine. We waited about 20 minutes to get our drinks and I had ordered the pineapple chicken bowl. After about 40 minutes I asked the server about my food since a table that was near me had gotten the same thing and they had just arrived. The server said they only had one cook and that it would take a while. As we were waiting we saw people leaving because they weren’t even getting greeted. At least three groups of people left without ordering anything. It wasn’t until my sister arrived and talked to the manager that the server came back and told us they gave our food to the wrong table and they wouldn’t charge us for the food. I was understanding and nice. The food was decent. After we finished we asked for the check and without asking she ran my card and had charged my card. I was still trying to be nice. I even left a tip. When I checked my bank account that night I noticed I was charged twice. After talking to my sister about the horrible experience I had she mentioned that when she asked for water the server told her to get it herself. I do not recommend this spot to anyone.

    Secret Island exceeded our expectations! The food is awesome, the drinks were good, we really liked the Pele bowl! Other drinks were a bit thin in body and could be better balanced, but not bad. Friendly service and fun atmosphere. The entrance is a bit tricky and is definitely hidden from the street. The bar is located in the basement. So access is by stairs from the street and restaurant above. We will definitely return.

    So we arrived early, ordered a few drinks and the bartender told us to have a seat anywhere. The problem was, the bartender never told the waitress that we were there for dinner. After almost an hour we flagged down the waitress and she finally helped out. Food and drinks were okay. But now I see that this place has tried to bill us twice on our credit card and we are now trying to get that resolved.

    We made reservations for 6:30 and drove for an hour to get to the restaurant. When we got there, we we told that it was a misunderstanding and that the system made a mistake and we don’t have a reservation pretty much ( although I showed him the screenshot and confirmation from the open table). He promised to find a table, left and didn’t come back. The rest of the employees were also ignorant and didn’t even notice that we were standing for over half an hour waiting by the bar. We ended up leaving. It was noisy, the music was horrible and pretty much I don’t recommend this place at all.

    We had a reservation for 6:15 but when we got there we were told us they didn’t have our table. We were told to sit at the bar and they would come get us when a table opened up in a few minutes, which never happened. Drinks were good and ambiance was fantastic but service was lackluster.

    Server was impossible to find or talk to. We sat next to the music so it was hard to hear but that was more on my party. Drinks were not good aside from maybe the peacock princess or queen drink. It was my sisters 21st birthday and it was a little disappointing to start her off with drinks that tasted like cough syrup and service that left us waiting for a check for 40 minutes.

    Had a reservation through Opendoor and they didn’t have it when we showed up. After waiting for 20 mins and a party left they gave us the table. Waitress was ending her shift and forgot our drinks twice but didn’t forget to close us out and return twice for the sign check while we still waited on drinks. Ambience was cool. More of a stop for one drink kinda of place but not the destination for the night.

    really bad experience with staff. they were unprofessional and rude, barely came by our table. we came for a special occasion and that occasion did not feel special at all by the way we were treated. made reservations over a week in advance and we still didn’t even get a booth and had to basically beg for one while the staff just walked around our table ignoring us. it was extremely hot in there and when we told the staff, they just agreed with us while we sat there sweating.

    Great tiki bar and restaurant. I liked the lava and thunder. Wait staff was a little slow but very nice. Pineapple chicken was great. The chicken wing appetizer is boneless (so not really wings) but REALLY good. The short rib is like pot roast meat, not what I was expecting.

    Love this spot now, music was fabulous, staff very friendly. Hawaiian theme was on point. Little space but even guests seemed to be genuinely happy. The theatrical entrance created a great beginning to our experience. We will definitely be back.
