Our Story

We Welcome the Aloha Spirit

The Founders

It all started with two best friends, Rob Thibaut and Sandy Saxten. They decided to design restaurants in locations where they wanted to live, work and play.

The Families

With over four decades of restaurant experience, the Thibaut and Saxten families are proud to carry on their family legacy.

Our Recipe

Since 1977 we’ve created restaurants with a genuine “sense of place” and a unique passion for our guests, employees and communities that we serve every day. We set the bar for destination restaurants, delivering great food, a welcoming experience, and memories that last a lifetime.

Our People

At the heart of everything we do lies our ‘ohana, the extended family we create with every guest and member of our team.

The company is family owned and the Thibauts and Saxtens are still actively involved across two generations. From these two families a larger T S family has grown.
