Mai-Kai boasts a delightfully retro ’50s vibe—and a classic menu that hasn’t changed since the restaurant opened. The sarong-clad waitresses and bar offerings of more than 51 tropical drinks pay playful tribute to the tiki bar tradition, and each of the many rooms of this sprawling restaurant reflects a different region of Polynesia, with waterfalls and lagoons scattered throughout. Stop by any night except Monday for a captivating dance performance by the Polynesian Islander Revue, complete with hand-sewn costumes—just make a reservation first.
