Tiki’s Grill & Bar, a popular Waikiki restaurant, will celebrate its 21st anniversary on October 23 with a special community benefit event.
The landmark eatery, known for its casual American and Pacific Rim cuisine, tropical drinks and sunset views, first opened its doors in 2002. To mark over two decades of serving the Honolulu community, Tiki’s is hosting an anniversary party that will donate all proceeds to the Maui Food Bank.
“We wanted to give back to the community that has supported us for the past 21 years,” said Michael Miller, co-founder of Tiki’s. “With this event, we hope to raise awareness and funds for the Food Bank’s critical hunger relief services across Maui County.”
The benefit will feature pupus, a live chef station, drink tickets and live musical entertainment. Guests will also have the opportunity to meet Executive Chef Ronnie Nasuti and sample some of his signature island-inspired dishes.
“Our goal is to provide a fun night out while making a meaningful impact,” said Chef Nasuti. “We aim to raise enough funds so the Food Bank can provide over 5,000 meals to local families in need.”
Over its two-decade tenure, Tiki’s has become a Waikiki staple, serving over 1,000 customers daily. With its beachfront setting, vibrant decor and top deck dining, the restaurant has attracted both tourists and locals, including celebrities visiting Oahu.
The 21st anniversary benefit promises to be a memorable celebration of Tiki’s history as a beloved community gathering place. The event will allow the restaurant to give back while commemorating over 20 years of aloha spirit.
Tickets to the October 23 benefit are available online, with all proceeds donated directly to the Maui Food Bank.
