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.

Tommy Bahama is a wonderful restaurant located in the tourist corridor south of downtown Orlando. Pointe Orlando has several options for dinner but this is a good, solid choice. It is a very pretty place, classic tropical theme. The menu isn't huge but offers good variety. The coconut shrimp is amazing. The ahi tuna delicious. The desserts are not to... More

I tried to make reservations for the restaurant but the maitre'd said just to come on in. Should have been a signal. My colleague and I were at Tommy's expecting a nice meal and a few exotic drinks. Unfortunately nothing added up to what we had hoped. My colleague ordered the 12 oz. filet mignon - rare. It came well... More

The food and the atmosphere here was nice. The only complaint was that they could not make the drink that I wanted...but other than that...It was all good. The crab bisque was wonderful as was the meal. I will come back here to eat again. Price wise it compares to each of the other places around it...for an App, a... More

Was nice sitting out on the patio. Had a delicious salad with blueberries in it, probably one of the best salads I have eaten. Also has the fish tacos and a basil lemonade which was delicious. Service was good.
