This restaurant is in downtown Sarasota. The menu selection was very good and included meals that could be considered healthy eating. The atmosphere was good and views from the top floor were good. The waitress was helpful.

Four of us had a scrumptious lunch at Tommy Bahama's. I had the house salad and chicken tortilla soup, which I will say was the best tortilla soup I have ever had. Salad was great also.....dried blueberries, tasty house dressing! Two in our party had the Cuban sandwich and both said it was delicious. The server was pleasant and efficient.... More

Friends of ours recommended this restaurant and we are glad they did. My wife had the sirloin salad and I had a burger and both were excellent. The service was very friendly, the atmosphere was great (including the sunset we watched out of the window) and the food was delicious. We got the Pina Colada cake for dessert and it... More

Having just spent the past three weeks in Lido Key I can confirm that this without doubt is the best bar in the area. We have been coming here on and off for the past 12 years and its still magical. The cocktails are great and the atmosphere really friendly. Special thanks have to go to Duggie, Brian but most... More

I would go here for the poke alone. It is a perfect mix of tuna,avocado,and other ingredients. It is a mini trip to the islands.

We are regular visitors from the UK and always visit Tommy Bahamas. We were not disappointed - the food was first class, a lively atmosphere and our server was informed and attentive. A really good night out.

Service was very slow. There is no special view, and with all of the amazing water views in the area, this place is a poor choice. Appetizers were incredibly bland. Waiter was very nice but very inattentive. Won't be back.

Went Christmas Eve hadn't booked but had a drink at the bar and had a table within half an hour. Lovely meal, very friendly waitress and thoroughly enjoy their Coconut Shrimp to start (we shared one large portion between 3) and I then had the fish taco's. Never had them before and they were delicious, great atmosphere and throughly enjoyable... More

When the bottle ran out during the pour did the bar tender get a new bottle and top it off, NO! But he did charge extra for the splash of cranberry juice in my wife's watery drink for $9. We left without even thinking about trying their food.

Try the coconut shrimp, you won't be disappointed. The bread with the cinnamon butter is the best. The atmosphere is like you are on a tropical island. Key lime martini is my favorite drink. The desserts are great, but the chocolate Oreo crusted one is enough to share and take home. If you like chocolate it will be your new... More
