In mid August TB is one of the only restaurants open for lunch on El Paseo on a weekday. By 12:30 most of the indoor tables were filled with local business people and a few ladies who lunch. The mango ice tea is unsweetened and refilled every 10 minutes. Their bread and flavored butter is a hit with most. I... More

Crab cakes, coconut shrimp, fish tacos, fish sandwich, bread.......oh my! Wife said best fish tacos she's ever had. Service was fantastic. A little pricey, worth every penny. Wish we a location closer to San Diego

Went with a friend to Tommy's for happy hour and ran into friends so our party grew. Food was fresh and mojito was cool and refreshing on a hot summer night. Food is always consistent and tasty.

My wife and I were close by and decided to stop and have dinner at Tommy Bahama's Restaurant & Bar in Palm Desert. The restaurant and bar were not very busy. Barbara our server was very attentive. Unfortunately the beers on tap were not available because it was very hot where the kegs were stored. It was 115 outside. My... More

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!
