My family was looking forward to a great dinner at the Tommy Bahama restaurant as we had just eaten at their other establishment in Maui in April and were impressed. I really enjoyed the key lime pie and pulled pork sandwich from our previous experience so I thought it would be the same this go-around. It was not... The pork... More

This is a great Happy Hour place. They have great drinks. They have a great outside seating area. And they have great appetizers. But do yourself a favor - don't stay for dinner. The main courses are lacking and the service isn't that great.

Thursday evening, live music was very enjoyable. My husband and I went with another couple, enjoyed cocktails, soup, dinner & dessert. I started off with a cup of chicken tortilla soup, which was very good. Generous size, could have shared it. Husband devoured the bowl of crab bisque, didn't even offer a spoonful for me to taste!! My husband and... More

The atmosphere of this place is great, but the food has unusual favors. I was a little disappointed with my fish sandwich. I don't think I will be returning.

Tommy Bahamas' Restaurant is on top of the store, has out door seating offering an awesome view of the mountains at sunset. The menu selection was one that you wanted to try at least one of everything. The Pineapple crème' brulee was excellent and coconut cake was outrageous!

There has never been a bad meal , appetizer , or desert in all the 100+ times we have been here. The happy hour is worth attending . The drinks , well , what can I say ? They pour a perfect margarita and the BBC's are wonderful. No scrimping on the pour. Great ambience and when the music man... More

Group of 4 buddies went to Tommy Bahama's for dinner one evening. Ate outside and was great even though a bit warm until the sun went down a little. But the fans & misters were nice. Lots of locals there who probably thought it was a fairly mild evening. Food & service were great. Three of us had wild atlantic... More

TB's is totally overpriced, but has a great rooftop patio. They shuffle the throngs of tourists around like cattle and prepare for overpriced cocktails and plates, but it's a nice place to sit outside and have a fruity drink, it that's your thing.

Our first experience for Happy Hour at Tommy Bahama's Bar was great. The music, service, atmosphere and food was first class. We will recommend this place to all of our friends. Enjoy!

I love the decor at this restaurant, sitting on the outdoor upstairs dining area, and the drinks - although the rum drink made with ginger beer was awful. Food is overpriced and OK. I had the fish tacos which just were not all that great. Too much emphasis on the 'slaw' part of the dish and not enough on the... More
