Do you know if this bankruptcy includes Tahiti Joe's? Their ribs were awesome.

Just because the company is going into bankruptcy doesn't mean they'll be closing down Tahiti Joe's (or any of their operations for that matter). It does mean the they will be looking to cut whatever isn't profitable, so please go show your support and keep Joe's in business. It's not as good a bar as Frankies but unlike Frankies they have (damn good) food. I'd suggest hitting it for dinner and a drink or two, then finishing the night up at Frankies.

p.s. I guess it might be independently owned, but the same point still holds. Tough times for the Tahiti resort means tough times for Tahiti Joe's

We went there in April--it was right down the street from the condos we were at-only made it there for lunch, but I thought the food and service was great--it's def more of a restaurant- so it's not dark and "over" decorated for more for the masses--but not cheesy at all--very nicely done.

I saw this tread and was also going to post that we were there in April and enjoyed our visit. Looks like Honey beat me to it. The drinks we had were strong and the food was pretty good. We even got their silly mug.

I can't believe I missed this.
But I'm very glad others posted their reviews!

Tahiti Joe's in Vegas is alive and well! Or at least it was as of late February 2012 when I visited! This was my last visit before moving away from Las Vegas. We had some amazing pizza (I know, not very "tiki"), and soaked up the tiki atmosphere. Unfortunately, I could not drink alcohol at the time (due to medical reasons), so no review of the drinks. I really like this tiki oasis! It's not "kind of" tiki, or pseudo tiki... It's a straight-up tiki restaurant (IMHO). The restaurant is in the Tahiti Village time-share complex, but it's totally open to the public (and no, you do not have to sit through a time-share presentation, ha ha!). It's in the same complex, but has a separate entrance. I snapped some pics with my phone. It doesn't take good pictures in low light, but you can at least get a general idea of what the place looks like. Enjoy!

Is a giant moai head with a nose ring and back-lit with red neon cheesy? Who cares?!



Yes, even the elevator was themed!

My son and I visited recently hoping to get the tiki mugs they display and advertise on their menus but they didn't have any and said they didn't think they would get them at all.
So we went to the hotel gift shop and were surprised to find tiki mugs there!

They need to do a little dusting
Had a drink at a table under the thatch bar
A big chunk of "Fuz dust" about the size of a small lime fell on our table off the thatch roof
Just missed my drink

Interesting that they had Island Heritage mugs so recently. I bought these three tonight at the bar (Poolside Pineapple?) it's all they have right now. Beware if they pack them, two of three were broken and I had to go back!

I am glad it is persevering. The menu is basic, although very cost effective, and while I am the opposite of a Mai Tai connoiseur, theirs was lacking. Nevertheless, the Tiki decor reigns supreme and I am glad I chose Tahiti Joes over Tommy Bahama Tropical Cafe.

However, some modifications have been made. Pool, ping-pong and air hockey tables have been added, along with a pair of video type games. My 3-year old loved it. I was less enthused, but if that keeps families at the time share coming, it is well worth it to keep the doors open.
