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

The restaurant was really crowded but the server still took his time with us and explained the menu specials of the night and answered all of our questions and was very friendly and interacted well with the kids at our table. The food was very delicious too. The server was always quick to get us refills and make sure we... More

My wife and I came for drinks earlier in the day and then came back to get takeout on our way home from our wonderful trip to this area. Key lime martini is not something typical for me to get, but my wife and mom always get it here so I got one this time and they are really good!... More
