Trader Vic's has a swanky 1960's Hawaiin theme that I love! The drink menu takes about 30 minutes to read (both because of the length and because of the dark mood lighting). The drinks are very fun and often come in coconuts or tiki glasses. I had one that had a stick of rock candy in it. For food, I love to get a mix of appetizers. The beef cho cho, calamari, and tuna poke are all winners.

First of all, while friendly, I felt nearly utterly abandoned by our waiter. He seemed to been extremely busy running back-and-forth from one side of the restaurant to the other and he only came by our table (voluntarily) about once every

I have visited the restaurant two times now and I must say that I was not impressed on my first visit as some of the other reviewers comments about speed of service and pricing were very accurate. I decided to give them a second chance

This is a one of a kind place, you just need to be a seasoned veteran to know how to enjoy it. While pricey, the drinks are phenomenal. Home of the original Mai Tai, their tropical drinks are fantastic. Try the Scorpion Bowl to share with

While the food is mediocre at best, the drinks are an incredible rip-off. All around $10, you get about 3 sips before you are done. The cosmopolitan came in a miniature martini glass and the other drinks come in small glasses completely

You won't find a place like this anywhere in TX. Closed for almost 20 years, Trader Vic's has reopened in the same location with the classic decor that was originally used 40 years ago. Places like this are dwindling fast, so to experience
