new menu options, I had the fish tacos ($12), their own style and delicious and it came with fried plantains and a scrumptious apricot yogurt sauce. Wife had their Mexican shrimp cocktail. It's not on the menu but she asks and they deliver. Tiffany, our wait staff, was a pleasure! They also had a great guitar player.

For Canadians visiting, this place reminded me of an Earl's type restaurant. Slightly pricier. The food was good - nothing surprising. The menu has no real surprises on it - a typical menu - crab cakes, pulled pork, burgers etc. What we had was great and we enjoyed our meals. Our server was great. The desserts were pretty good -...

I love the Tommy Bahama philosophy "Relax". The minute you walk in, your stress level drops. For happy hour, head for the patio. Big cushioned seats, ceiling fans when it's warm and heaters when it's cold. Spectacular service. Wine,beer, cocktails and martinis all at reasonable prices. You don't need to bother with dinner. You can order the small plates on... More

My husband and I had lunch on the outdoor patio. It's very spacious and although the weather was cool, there are awnings that would shade you from the sun in the heat. The food was really good. I had an appetiser flatbread which was bigger than I could finish. My husband had a pulled pork burger. There are birds waiting... More

Went with a friend for happy hour drinks. Atmosphere was good service friendly but a little offhand. Didn't eat anything.

I would give this a 3.5 if I could, but not a four. The food was good, but it was very loud inside. We chose to sit outside and that was not so bad. This is along the lines of a Bahama Breeze, which I like. We had the coconut shrimp and scallop sliders. Both were good. This is the... More

We enjoyed our lunch here. The atmosphere and service were very good. The outdoor dining area is unique. All four of us ordered the ahi tuna burger which was just okay. Would not order it again.

Yes, they have decorated their restaurant completely. But, the reason you go to a restaurant is the food. Tommy Bahamas is just middle-of-the-road fare. And, for what it is, it's just not worth the price. I can imagine their overhead...their location alone - on El Paseo in The Gardens - must send them to the poorhouse. But, I must be... More

My group was looking for a nice place to have dinner one night. We asked the concierge at our resort for a recommendation on a good place to eat. She without hesitation recommended Tommy Bahamas restaurant on the Paseo. When we arrived we were greeted warmly by the host at the front desk. We were seated within five minutes of... More
