Pleasantly Surprised

The atmosphere was very nice. The food was better than I had expected. I had the fish tacos and they were very good, although a little on the skimpy side. My husband had the hamburger and said it was good. Our friend had the crab salad and it looked very good.

Many think of T. Bahamas primarily for food, but our experience was that their restaurant food was quite good and interesting, as well. One of our party had a kalua pork sandwich, with blackberry brandy BBQ, crispy onions, Asian slaw, and sweet potato mofongo ( mashed sweet potato, mango, and plantain). Summary: Tasty, well-prepared each item. Another had coconut shrimp,... More

I am in love with the steak salad at Tommy Bahama. Prime steak cooked to perfection, topped with shiitake

Went with a friend for some lunch and beverages. We had the shredded pork quesadilla and Scallop sliders, perfect and hit the spot. Our beverages were refreshing and made well. Friendly staff and service. Very Busy, tourist spot for sure also locals galore.

I had no idea Tommy Bahama also had a restaurant but what a treat this was. Up high, overlooking the desert and mountains of Palm Desert, plenty of umbrellas to keep away the hot sun, a superb wait staff, good "din" and wonderful food. We had had a wonderful lunch and a waitress who couldn't seem to do enough for... More

A group of eight friends (some old, some new) wanted to go out to dinner. Two lived in Palm Springs and the rest were visitors in Palm Desert. Our friend who lives in Palm Springs suggested Tommy Bahama Restaurant and we were all quite pleased! Yes it’s a chain but it feels like a neighborhood restaurant. And the menu didn't... More

EVery time my wife and I come back to Palm Springs we go to Tommy Bahamas. It's not the best or finest dining, but it's fun, comfortable, colorful, and ALWAYS good. The food and service are really excellent. Wonderful choices and very fair prices. Love the neighborhood as well.

Went for a lovely lunch outside. Blackened fish tacos were excellent, along with the red, white and blue salad and the pulled pork. The rolls were warm and were served with a cinnamon-infused butter. Yum!

Had reservations for Easter Sunday to take granddaughter and her husband for brunch. Sat outside which was nice. However their was no special brunch menu which I was told there would be for Easter. Food was really bad and very expensive. Will not return.
