Went here with family this week. All I can say is that this is honestly the best Jerk Chicken I have ever had. I'm not sure if this is because I haven't really tried Jerk Chicken in the Caribbean but I honestly loved it. Our waiter was very friendly and spent a lot of time talking with us. Restaurant was...

I went here for lunch one day during a convention in Orlando. The bar area was lovely and I had a very nice and fresh salad. The service was good, I don't recall having any issues with time or getting my drink refilled. I recommend coming to this cafe if you are looking for a fresh tropical dining experience!

Very nice and friendly staff and great food. We sat outside and enjoyed the evening. I wanted to skip dessert but the selection was to tempting. The butterscotch pudding was amazing.

The service here is slow but the staff couldn't be friendlier. The menu is varied and offers something for everyone. With a tropical atmosphere and good location, this is a great stop for lunch or dinner. Tip; valet parking is validated but not the self park

The food was great, better than I expected from a chain. I had the jerk chicken, which had a nice spice layer and was wood grilled just like at home. It was accompanied by yellow rice and a delicious pineapple chutney and a few fired plantains. I ate every bite, so had not room for anything else but wished I... More

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
