Our family has been coming to this restaurant since its opening. It is one of my wife's favorites, our last visit, prior to this one was a major disappointment. We did not think we would be returning.......ever. The General Manager Thai Branton noticed my review here on Tripadvisor and made a concerted effort to get us to return. I was... More

" Would your kids like one of our Non Alcoholic drinks?" "You've order an appetizer but wouldn't you like some Coconut Shrimp also"? "Hey kids would you like another Daiquiri"? "Let me explain these desserts" (Only about $10.00 each). "Are you sure you don't want one of our delicious desserts?" Enough already. My daughter thought the chips and salsa were... More

This restaurant took a reservation at 10:30 PM. When we arrived they were already in the process of closing up. They were stacking chairs, cleaning floors, dragging trash cans through the dining room, and generally making a lot of noise. They should not be taking reservations at this hour if they are in the process of closing and not prepared... More

This is one of my favorite Sarasota restaurants for lunch. I chose to sit outside where I could people watch and the weather was perfect. The staff are friendly and helpful. Both my friend and I had the tuna quinoa salad and we added a side of Faro (grain) to our dish. It was perfect (and not too expensive either)!... More

Tasty, super dinner, with topp notch ingredients prepared really well. We have food allergies, and service was very good both for GF and lactose-free choices/adaptions.

We were so tired, so we stopped at Tommy Bahama's restaurant. The waitress Deborah was exceptional and suggested a couple of entrees. One was the macadamia encrusted snapper...it was delicious...I am still thinking about it.

Whenever in Sarasota we always jump over to St. Arman's and dine at least once at Tommy Bahama's. Although an extremely busy Friday night (fully booked) we sat at the bar and Doug, Dan and Cheryl were just great. As busy as they were they still gave us the attention we desired and wonderful service. I had the coconut crusted... More

Omg!!! Our first visit and won't be our last. Everything was amazing. Our server Krystal was awesome. Had some great recommendations. I loved the chicken tortilla soup. Best I have ever tried. The scallop sliders are delightful. Perfectly made...the atmosphere is fabulous. Great staff all around.
