With a name like the Half Moon Inn, this place has great potential. The look of the entrance is superb and there are a lot of Tikis inside.

Welcome to the Bali Hai. Arthur Lyman recorded half a live album here, and there are still some nice Tikis both inside and out. Check out "The Goof" from the top of the Bali Hai!
