Tiki Port Hyannis
as of April 2006

- Yes, there are tiki (always have been). Not an extravaganza, but some path and doorway frames.
- Yes, there are tropical drinks (they've always been there). Drinks are strong, big, rather cheap ($3-6) and many are served in tiki mugs or bowls.
- Food is 'Cantonese + Polynesian, Mandarin American Cuisine' - I like it. Yumbo.

Here are some links to pix.
aloha!

Wow, that's like two hours away. That qualifies for an overnight stay - little weekend on the Cape. I'll check in w/ HQ and see how the end of May looks.

Waitiki visited the Tiki Port back in Feb. after the Nantucket Luau. We did indeed find the drink menu to be decent, and the drinks to be respectably strong.

Decor was nice, but not that authentic, compared to, say, the Mai Kai. The ambience was more a chinese restaurant with a tip of the hat to Tiki.

The bar itself was more a locals hangout. It is Hyannis, after all.

Last night, we reconvened at the Tiki Island for comparison, and other than some tikis with glowing red eyes (red lights behind), and a mural of an island with tikis, hula girls, and in the distance, a cargo ship docked at the "TIki Port," a volcano in the background on the other side, it was a similar atmosphere. Food and drinks were almost identical to the Tiki Port.

Mmmm. Now sitting on a mountainside in far-off Korea.

Authentic or not, overwhelming or otherwise, please enjoy the escapism of tiki. The chance to locate an oasis (of almost any sort) should not be scoffed at.

Those Tiki Port snacks and drinks are tasty, cheap and hard to beat. Perhaps finer dining these days involves quorm or couscous... sometimes one might stick-out yer pinkie and sip at the finer things of life. But the Tiki Port has been turning out good grub for 30+ years.

Count your blessing...

aloha from afar!

Aloha Pappy - I'm game sometime. Hyannis is a pretty good hike for us so we'll probably hold out until, hate to say it, Spring. The Miss and I will turn it into a little getaway to the Cape and I'll bundle in Tiki Port.

Rippa thanks for the pics - the place looks good and will definitely deserve a visit.

Well Pappy, the next time I'm due in town I'll drop you a note beforehand. As of now, I watch torrential rain on a cloudtopped mountainside near Sinchon in Seoul. Could be worse (I'm reasonably cozy and fed) but would greatly appreciate the food & drinks that $20 would elicit from Tiki Port.

aloha!

You know what's weird, is there's a pickup truck that's parked down the street from my place right now, and on its door it says TIKI PORT, HYANNIS, MA. With the phone number on it. What a weird/strange coincidence. By the way, if anyone needs a good accountant for tax time, I know of one who is just a block (or so) away from Tiki Port's sister restaurant, Tiki Island, in Malden.
