While digging through snapshots to post on my Disneyland photo blog, I found this group of four photos of ladies enjoying a meal at a Tiki restaurant. The restaurant was in Los Angeles area as that is where I found the pictures. Let me know if any of you can place the restaurant. Photos are dated June 1970. Thanks.

Are you sure they were all taken at the same place?

Look at the different decor, the chairs, the table cloth (or lack of table cloth).

I think the 1st and 4th photos are from one restaurant, and the 2nd and 3rd are from another.

Cool photos, though!

Ookoo Lady- I am not sure if they are the same restaurant. Looking at them now, I agree with you. Photo number 2 and 3 are from a different restaurant. I was thinking that all were the same restaurant due to the orange menu seen on the tables, but that might have been their club roster or something else.

The menus! That's the clue. 1 and 4 do appear to be the same. A hi-res scan of the menu will get us much closer to figuring out where this is.

The candle holders and ashtrays look the same in all of the photos. Could it be the same chain of restaurants but different locations? Or the bar area and the dining area had different tables.

i agree, it looks like photos 1 and 4 are the dining area/banquet room, and photos 2 & 3 are in the bar area banquet room? the menus and candles look the same (as well as the women) so it is probably the same restaurant. now the chairs in photos 1 and 4 are the same chairs i have in my dining table set. those are specifically from the 60's so we can maybe assume this restuarant opened in the 1960s. the question is, what polynesian restaurant had a pirate mural/pirate themed bar/banquet room area?

I have looked at the photos using a magnifying glass and cannot make out the name of the restaurant. Looking at the Luau menu, the design does not seem to be similar. Here is a scan of just the menu laying on the table, it looks like a guy in a sombrero hat:



I believe this group of ladies was with weight watchers or another similar group. They are all dressed in black with pink sashes or name tags.

OK, here's my stab at photo forensics. I took the blowup pic of the menu and rotated it. Here it is:



I downloaded a clean-up program, and this is the result:



Not a whole lot better, but to me, the words "Pirate's Table" appear on what looks like a pirate with a beard,earring and knife in his mouth, the words written on his hat.

An internet search for Pirate's Table turns up this link:

http://www.rapidcityjournal.com/bhflavor/index.php?reid=51

Everything jibes except for the timeframe, but that could be explained by change of ownership. A short excerpt from the review makes it sound like this might be the place:

"The restaurant’s extensive stonework mimics a pirate’s cave with palm trees and walls creating cozy dining hideaways. Beautiful air-brushed murals give the effect of dining while overlooking seaside beaches. Or treat your friends and family to dining in the Captain’s Quarters, with décor that resembles a ship’s interior."

Discuss.
