Love eating outside

The food was great and they were very accommodating to a large group. Service was also good - timely and friendly. The best part however was eating out on the balcony. They had up an awning/tent structure to keep the sun from being too much, so it was perfect.

I can not think of one negative thing to say about this restaurant. We took a group of 65 guest to Tommy Bahamas and it was FABULOUS! Everyone I talked to loved the food and the atmosphere was great. Ana, the manager, checked in several times and was always smiling and very friendly. I have worked in restaurants previously and... More

The service was great and the food fresh and tasty. We had to wait for the dishes but we knew we were getting fresh ingredients. Liked the stuffed shrimp and the pina colada cake. Good rums and mojitos. We will be here soon again.

if you're in the Orlando convention center area this is one of the better chain restaurants in the vicinity, with a well constructed menu, good fish and friendly service. Weather permitting, the outdoor area is delightful, especially on a warm night. The food isn't memorably amazing, it's just solidly reliable --- perfect for a business group to wine and dine...

While dining at Tommy Bahama;s Tropical Café in Orlando, we were fortunate enough to have a very knowledgeable server named Jeff. He guided us through an amazing meal from start to finish with efficiency, humor, and knowledge of both wine and food. Thanks Jeff and also huge thank you to your chef.

Stopped in without a reservation and the hostess told us there would be a wait. So we went to the bar, where we were immediatel greeted by a bartender who offered suggestions on drinks and food. Asking about the wait we were whisked to a free table on the spot. The food was good, slightly eclectic and not the usual... More

I order the lump crab cake as an appetizer thinking it would be friend like the Maryland style. I was disappointed when the food arrived. Lump of tuna-like crab meat over avocado and mango.

The food here is excellent and the service is helpful and knowledgable. By American standards starter and main course portions are on the small size but the desserts are huge and can easily be shared. The food only bill for a main and a sharing sweet averaged $38pp inc tip.

Prices seemed a little high but the atmosphere was very nice and everything our party of 3 ordered was very tasty and high quality. I guess you pay for what you get.
