Just found this 1983 ad



At least there's a tiki in the ad. Looks like this place just closed in the past couple years. The building is set too far off the street to see anything on google maps. Property was also for sale recently.

Anyone been there?

I found out some more info on the South Seas in Salt Lake City.

First off, it was run by Benny Chan, who also had the Polynesian.



You can see more on the Polynesian
Here

Here is an article on the opening, as always it was a family affair with the Chans.





Second up, there were two South Seas in Salt Lake City run by the Chan's with the second location called the South Seas Café as seen in this add for both locations.




Great looking sign on the South Seas Café.




And the building exterior for the South Seas location.



A few more ads from each location
