My first visit and I was utterly disappointed. My guests’ opinion was of a singular note. "Decor, Service and food was plain horrible" (I have opted to use a more polished adjective) The food was barely palatable- My guests and I ordered several items on your magical dining menu, and I was dismayed to find that each dish was either...

We had a wonderful lunch here. Food was good and service was attentive. Surprisingly good and I'd go back again.

Very nice decor with a pleasant background hum. The food was good with the shrimp and grits being my favourite. Fair selection of draft beers and lots of cocktails.  Our server was great so overall a goid time had

I took my wife to this restaurant as it was a quick walk from my stay at the Hyatt Regency and it was the last night of my 10-day 25th anniversary honeymoon. Anyway, I read about the great reviews and saw how great some of the menu items looked, and I had to try it out. For appetizers, I had... More

We mostly enjoy the sandwiches at our California Tommy Bahamas restaurant. When seated, we were given dinner menus, which no longer carry any sandwiches (an obvious attempt to drive up the bill, as most dinners cost around $30). No wonder the restaurant was empty! There were only 3 other tables with guests in a large, freezing cold room. We asked... More

Meeting new clients is never easy but tonight it was seamless thanks to Jeffery! From the moment we sat down, Jeff provided an easy atmosphere and made just the right suggestions to keep the conversation flowing! Every suggestion was excellent! Loved the tuna Poke! And that chocolate desert...YUM! Thanks Jeff!

We live in Orlando and usually avoid the touristy restaurants, but this trip was a pleasant surprise. The service and attentiveness of the staff was exceptional. The food was very good. The atmosphere was also very nice.

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.
