Quick bite

We stopped here for a quick bite and to cool off from walking all the shops at St. Armands circle. The staff were friendly, but could've been more attentive since they weren't that busy. The crab bisque wasn't that great. It was all bisque, and maybe 2 pieces of crab. However, the quesadillas were... read more

The food was a tad expensive and not fabulous. The atmosphere and staff were very nice. There was a musician playing which was a nice touch.

Superbly crafted cocktails with a tropical twist and excellent small plates in a cool Hemingway-style vibe. The Mia Tai is money!

Vacationing in fla for a week and went to this restaurant 3 times. The service was great, and the food was delicious. If your looking for good seafood or sandwiches this is the spot.

The downstairs bar is a great spot to drink and dine when you have a group of more than 6-8 people. We had 16, and captured the street end of the bar, so we had seating for whenever someone was ready to eat, and had an easy time of mixing among the group. Bartenders were very attentive, and the food... More

We were a group of 5 athletes and 8 parents, split the check 5 ways no problem. Food was delicious, I had fish tacos, my daughter had crab cakes, loved the food. Service was impeccable. Great value for food and service received.

The layout was very unique because were we are from there's not a lot of tropical setting. Our server was so sweet. The food came out very quickly. Thank you for the amazing service 😀😀😀😀

We visited twice for lunch having previously been to the Naples outlet. Tommy's never lets you down. Great food and service, very varied menu, relaxed friendly atmosphere and great value. We know it is a chain but they never let their standards slip.

I like that when you make a reservation at this restaurant that they read your requests on Open Table. I have always asked for outside and they have accommodated. Good selection of Caribbean fare - pulled pork is nice - flavorful drink menu. It is at the end of the road so not as crowded. Service has always been great.
