You might know the Ocean Manor Hotel for its long-running, poolside, and generally awesome Tiki Bar out back. Hoping to build off that popularity, the hotel opened Tokyo Blue with the hopes of turning the formerly staid space into something night-club hip. The feel is more South Beach than poolside, with a swank bar along the back serving drinks bubbling with dry ice and stark-white tables along the windows overlooking the beach. The menu includes an extensive sushi list, including rolls like the "mac 'n' cheese," which comes with eel, soft-shell crab, masago, and fresh conch ($14). The entrées include a black cod with a miso glaze ($26) and a traditional pad Thai with jumbo shrimp ($22). There are also grill selections that include a "ranchero" rib eye, which, at $86, will remind you that you're definitely not at the Tiki Bar anymore.

What happened to this place?
When this place opened, it was awesome, the all-you-can eat lobsters, elegantly presented, professionally served, with great seating outside.
Tragically, things have changed! In October we went to have a birthday gathering, and it was the WORST! dining experience any of us at the table recall ever having in any real restaurant. The unforgivable part was, however, that even after alerting the manager, the service and the food continued to be abysmal.
I even tried to follow up with them the next day, and the consistent response from the managers has been to explain to me why I'm mistaken, and the service and food were not awful, and that we did in fact enjoy ourselves. baffling!
Sort the reviews posted here by date, and the truth becomes apparent quickly, Tokyo Blue started out strong, but had degraded into something awful. Don't waste your dining dollars here!
