Hubby and I enjoy stopping by Tommy Bahama about once a month. We typically like to sit in the bar area since it's more casual and lower key. Dishes are consistent, deliciously prepared and always beautiful. Service is always great - everyone is friendly, courteous and service-focused.

Wonderful food, attentive service, and expensive prices. Went here for lunch and loved it. I had an ahi burger that was to die for and my friend had amazing fish tacos. Really enjoyed our visit!

Upstairs dining room had island decor. Staff starts Tommy Bahama shirts. Coconut shrimp and grouper sandwich are favorites. Not cheap but good quality for the price.

Met friends here for early dinner. Had good Happy Hour drink menu - Mai Tai was delicious! For dinner we tried the Macadamia Nut Red Snapper and Sanibel Chicken - both were very good - Snapper was better. We were able to switch out sides. Wait staff were very attentive and even provided a slice of cake for a birthday... More

Wanted a meal that we knew would deliver; it didn't disappoint. By choice, we sat outside overlooking the nightlife. Served by Nicholas, who was efficient and personal despite a variety of questions over both the menu and the wine list. Pork, really well cooked. Simple sauce and accompaniments in order to not take away from the quality. Scallop & prawn... More

We visited on a Tiesday evening in "low" season and it was quite busy. There is a on line booking system available. The waiting staff were good and has a good knowledge of the dishes on the menu. Even thought it was busy we were not rushed. We had the fish and chips and the Thai Shrimp and Scallops, both... More
