Chef Shannon is talented, creative, and buys food locally. Contrary to popular belief, all Tommy Bahama Restaurants support local business's. Try the goat cheese, my personal favorite, and the tuna taco appetizers. THE BEST!! They also have amazing specials. A must visit for all foodies.

The Sanibel chicken is AMAZING! Bread with cinnamon honey butter is a great start to the meal. Drinks are made well - try the Crazy Cuban. People are VERY nice and accommodating. Overall - great meal!

Made a slight detour on way from Captiva FL to Savannah GA just so we could stop and eat here. Tommy Bahama's is absolutely, one of my all time favorite restaurants. Upscale/Casual, if you will. The restaurant recently switched from a lunch and dinner menu to an all day menu. Our party of 4 enjoyed all our meals: Had the... More

Unless you had reservations the hostess encouraged you to go else where. She sat a couple at a table for 6 during the rush of dinner hours. She would direct people waking in to go across street to another restaurant. She told us we should have gotten a reservation. People would walk in and ask if they could get drink... More

A welcoming environment with great service. The food tasted really good . The area in the restaurant where we sat was perfect. The upstairs restrooms were neat and clean. I highly recommend this location.

The title says it all. I had never eaten at a Tommy Bahama, so we thought we'd try it for a late lunch. The place wasn't crowded at that time of day, so we were seated immediately. The menu wasn't all that attractive to us.....we were looking for a more traditional fare, but we decided to stay anyway. The waiter... More
