Placed a to-go order and was told my order would be ready in ten minutes. Got to Tommy's and went to the register to get my order. At least four times I was passed by staff before someone asked if they could help. I was then told that they did not have my order! The staff person then walked away... More

Tommy's Paradise is a great little place for some good food and relaxing. They have really good barbecued chicken and ribs, great fish tacos, and killer bread pudding. In addition to some good eatin', the tiki bar is really nice to sit outside and have a cold beer or drink. They have several tables outside and bands or musicians that... More

I really enjoy Tommy's Paradise. The theme is "where country meets Key West." I think that is a pretty good way to describe this place. The food and drinks are good. The majority of the restaurant/bar is outside. I will go back again.

Outside venue, live band, convenient location, right? Wrong, they still need to serve good food, and provide good service. Haven't been back since May 2013 after the Kentucky Derby.

Found this place on the back-roads and it used to be packed all the time. The first couple time that I went were a great time but it seems to me that ownership lost interest and service was almost nonexistent. Last night (on a Saturday night) there was a total of 7 people at the bar an two tables that... More

We ordered a dish that was recommended by our waiter. When it arrived and we began eating, the dish was salty to the point of being inedible. We won't be going back!!

When we first meoved to the area a few years ago, this place had just opened (though we didn't know it at the time) and if you asked me if I reccomended it then, I would have had to think about it a little. Food was good, but outdoor seating was a little too rustic for me, and it looked... More

Had dinner with 3 friends. Mostly an outdoor place with locals drinking beer. Food was below par, and service was slow. This is close by our house and we thought we would be making it our local restaurant. Food was poor, but beer was cold. I would stay away. Don't feel like the food was fresh, and it was way... More

we went with friends and really liked the outdoor seating area and the general atmosphere of the place. It was a nice night and the music was very good..However the service was very slow, we sat for a while before anyone came over to take a drink order. Our server was nice but it took forever to get food and... More
