Popular place and good food.

There was a small wait for a table, but the service was good and everyone enjoyed their meal. I would really suggest the fish tacos. They were very tasty. They had a good selection of cocktails and a very lively vibe all over the place. Happy hour is a popular time there and the bar food is good... read more

This is a fun place to eat because you are practically sitting on the beach. The food was good but not great.

Very nicely decorated in Bahamian theme and scented with pineapple and coconut. Though casual, this is a nice place. Our server was friendly. Service was not speedy but was relaxed and okay. Not stuffy but also not too noisy. Hot bread and sweet cinnamon butter was remarkable. Had a nice classic Margarita (next time I will delete the overly salted... More

Even as you are walking up to this restaurant, you know you are in for a treat with the terrific tropical exterior. The wide front porch with its island feel actually leads into a tropical-scented Tommy Bahama clothing store, but keep going, and through a broad doorway is the restaurant (which also has a separate entrance). Our party of four... More

My teenage son and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. It was fancy enough for him to feel grown up, and I enjoyed the departure from pizza and burgers. The atmosphere was casual, just right for eating our while on vacation. Since it was not crowded, there wasn't any problem with noise or service. I got the feeling that it fills... More

If you like sitting and eating in a lovely atmosphere, this place would be a great pick ! It is handsomely decorated in a casual way. The food was equally Good with a varied upscale bar menu. It also has a separate room on the side if you're looking for a separate party room

This place is a little bit corporate but the staff and in particular the kitchen staff appears to be well trained. The food is really very good and unlike a lot of places that seem to like to throw too many exotic ingredients at every dish just to make the menu read "creative," the chef has put together some unusual...

I picked Tommy Bahama's due to the reviews on TA but was disappointed. The server was good - but the service (especially getting the food out) was SSSLLLLOOOOWWW and UNIMPRESSIVE. I had a fish sandwich and my wife had the fish tacos and both of us agreed there was no flavor to ANY of the food. I had their asian... More

Great, just like the other ones that I've been to in the past. Service was good, food was perfectly cooked. Nothing bad about this location. We had everything from Ahi tacos to Wagyu burger to Scallop sliders. The entrees are all good.
