It's the only tiki anything left in Columbus, as the dreadful processed frozen food company bearing the name Kahiki doesn't count. The drinks are good and so is the decor. The food is mostly Asian fusion and I'm not a fan of that kind of cuisine. I was hoping they would try to recreate some old Kahiki classics like the Tahitian mermaid or Mahi Mahi almondine. I don't go often and don't eat the food when I do.

So much for no tv!! According to their Facebook page the Grass Skirt has been "prettied up".

I thought the chairs they had in there before were the most uncomfortable
chairs you could put in a restaurant, Till I saw these benches.
Where would you put your coat as well, It's cold in Ohio so we often have those.

Don't know why Columbus is so in love with the person who is Cols food group.
If you look on Yelp it's not "prettied up" that this place needs.
It needs good service, good food, work on that.
If not for the great reviews that a certain group gives them this place would have
a horrible Yelp rating, as it is the rating is ok at 3.5 stars.

Here's the latest review....
1.0 star rating 10/5/2015
Went in at 6:00 with my family. Sat at a table for half hour with no service. Apparently it's more important to serve loud and drunk assholes at the bar. We left and won't be coming back.

When we went the food was good so we got another of the same and that version of the same item was not good.

The hot dog place could not even get the HOT part of hot dog right as the hotdog was cold.
And I think I got vegetarian Coney sauce on my cold dog, why is there even such a thing as
vegetarian Coney sauce?
And some people RAVE about Dirty Franks.

The owner of this place is lucky she is friends with the reviewer types and political types in this town as it maybe the only thing saving her.

I know the benches were on sale at Home Depot but nobody wants to sit on benches.
Bag the benches, and those horrible metal chairs while you are at it.

My lady Hannah and I will be in town from Grand Rapids and plan to visit the Grass Skirt Friday night (20th). If you happen to be in the bar that night - please say hello. Can't miss me - I'll have my Shriner Tiki shirt on.

Have fun.
I will be at Windward passage.
What time will you be at the GS?

Would guess a few of the local group might be at GS, I don't go there really.
If you have time at end of night the windward is about 20 mins away.

Los Guachos Taqueria has really good food FYI.

Skip, sorry we missed you. I was in Cinci longer than expected and made it to town later in the day, but I did get a chance to visit the grass skirt and the windward. Enjoyed both places. Thanks for the recommendations.

Check to see when GS closes, it can be really early some days even Fri and Sat.
Windward stops food at 10:00 and we leave most weekends at around 11:00 or so.

But really Los Guachos Taqueria is the best and fastest food, and not costly.
Gringas tacos are great I think it was on food network even.

Was Grass skirt busy?
I missed you at Windward, glad you were able to see it, what time were you at Windward?
Hope you did NOT get a Mai Tai at Windward! they come with Grenadine.

I like Windward because it is old and of the era of the old tiki bars.
Maybe it's that old era I like more than just tiki?

Hope you went to the bar that's the fun place at Windward.

Forgot to tell you about the Springfield Antique show that was on Sat.
We did make one rare tiki find that day, other than that not a great show.
