Good Food, Spotty Service

We had dinner on a Tuesday night and everyone seemed pleased with their food. I had the Bungalow salad followed by a crusted cod (which was one of the specials). I thought the food was quite good, though I felt my cod was undercooked (nearly raw). The ambience of the restaurant was nice as well... read more

My wife and I had eaten at three different Tommy Bahama Restaurants when visiting the Hawaiian Islands and loved them all, so we were thrilled to discover that Sarasota also had one. This restaurant, we were told, is the only Tommy Bahama Restaurant that is not jointly located with one of their clothing stores. This two story restaurant is located... More

Maybe I am cheap, but I wouldn't go here for just a quick bite to eat on the spur of the moment. For one appetizer, one salad, two entrees, two beers, two cups of coffee and one dessert it came to $110 before tip. But for a special occasion, I would definitely consider it. The food was excellent. The appetizer... More

Stopped for lunch yesterday with 4 adults and 2 toddlers as well as a 6 month old. Fairly empty, we were seated and greeted quickly. Waiter was good and promptly put in starving kids order and got our beverages. Kids chicken finger meal was delicious. Other toddlers hotdog was so salty as to be inedible by him or adults. Adults...

We were excited to try this restaurant because we love the clothes and didn't know they also had restaurant. The bread and fluffy nutmeg butter was excellent. The desserts looked great. They do a pineapple creme brûlée served in a pineapple. I wish we would have had dessert. We had their famous coconut shrimp which were okay. Hubby's crab and... More

Stopped here late one weeknight for a quick bite and was not disappointed. The burger was perfect- juicy, flavorful, done just as I ordered (med rare), and served on a buttery, fresh bun as well! Would def return and order something more substantial.

We enjoy sitting upstairs on the balcony on warm days. We like to go for a late lunch/early dinner. Drinks are tasty but, to me, light on the alcohol. Food is very good, selections are good. Tortilla soup is excellent with a little heat. Brisket tacos were ok with a odd spice. Salads are very good. The atmosphere makes the... More

We sat outside just a few feet from St. Armand's Circle. We ate a delightful spicy salmon salad while sipping tasty drinks with steaming hot bread. Our server was a delight, fast and very personable. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will be back.

I was able to walk to the restaurant from Lido Beach. I was travelling along and felt very comfortable eating at the bar. Staff was friendly, food was good (coconut shrimp!!!), price reasonable and just steps to the shops at St. Armands Circle… Perfect!

The food here is really good. I was skeptical of a name brand restaurant in this location, but it's so good and worth any wait you have. Reservations highly recommended for weekends year round, but not needed otherwise... You may have to wait a few minutes, but not long. Steaks and seafoods are awesome.
