The atmosphere is the best and the food is very good. Favorites include Crab Bisque, FrIed Grouper sandwich, Chicken Lollipop appetizer, Spareribs. And they serve the best bread with honey butter, Yum!

If you get emails from Tommy's then you know Foodie Fridays is a tree as you get a chef's sampler. The Sante fe chicken was really good. The coconut shrimp remain a classic.

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.

My wife and I went to Tommy Bahamas for dinner last night. We were not impressed. Most importantly, the food was very mediocre. Her mahi mahi was relatively tasteless. My ribs were a little better, but hardly compared with good ribs, let alone the best. The chicken tortilla soup was at least pretty good. The decor was uninspired and the... 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.
