First, service was GREAT. I sat at the bar and all I wanted was a burger. The dinner menu did not have a burger on it, but the bartender had the kitchen make it special. Great job by them The burger was just average. It was too sloppy. The bun did not hold up so it just fell apart. Because... More

The food was wonderful, great menu overall, ticket times for food was pretty long. The beet and goat cheese salad, crab cakes, and nut crusted snapper were incredibly good!

When one our group suggested to dine at Tommy Bahama I was a bit apprehensive. After this is a clothing store right? I started with a Tortilla Soup. This was a thick flavorful soup. It was a bit of a surprise as I was expecting the usual but tasty mexican flavored Chicken Soup. I should have ordered a bowl as... More

I'm not a big seafood guy, but I do love shrimp. The coconut shrimp at Tommy Bahama's was amazing. I also had the jerk chicken, which was tasty with the rice, and key lime pie, which was perfect. Highly recommended. My only complaint was that a company party was being held at the same time, so it was quite noisy.... More

I really liked the atmosphere of the restaurant. It was so classic shore club and the food matched the decor. The menu skews more to seafood which is never a bad thing in my book. This particular restaurant also offered valet service which came in really handy because parking is hard to find in that area. Overall, nice location, great... More

I drive area with nice décor, great attentive service and delicious food. The Crab Cakes were full of crab and flavor. The Thai shrimp and scallops were delicately done and remained moist and juicy, The macadamia crusted snapper was wonderful The raspberry cream brulee was a nice variation on an old favorite.

What can I say about this place other than it's brilliant! We visit Orlando fairly often and after finding Tommy's some years ago we have made many return visits including a family party a few years ago to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. The world renowned Coconut Shrimp deserves its fame and isn't beaten anywhere in Orlando. The servers are... More

We stopped in while we were waiting for our villa to be cleaned. Had a great lunch (the tuna soft tacos are the best) and returned the following night for dinner. Again another fantastic meal and great service. The coconut margarita is a must try.

Surprised to find this dark tropical pub style restaurant attached to the shopping - really enjoyed the coconut shrimp, mojitos, and the ccrab and avocado salad. Finished with the blackened chicken tacos. Everything was delicious. They could have used a few extra employees the day we were there - but other than that it was a lovely lunch out.
