we visited this restaurant with friends for the first (and last time). It gives the impression of being "up market" hence the prices. We ordered the Cuban sandwich and fish sandwich. Both were very greasy. The next day my husband and I both had upset stomachs and felt queasy. I did not like the attitude of the waitress, who was... More

They have a great $5 menu on some really good items.. fish tacos, three chicken drumsticks, plantains... In addition you get great service. Doug at the bar had a full bar... More

As locals we frequent this resturant 2 or 3 times a month and it's usually good. Service has and is always a tad slow but food usually good. However our most recent visit for lunch was an all round waste. The service was very bad and the chicken on the tacos and on the ceaser salad was chewy and almost... More

Just happened to be in the area at lunch time, so decided to give it a try. We weren't disappointed the staff were very welcoming and very knowledgeable. My wife wanted to try the All American Burger, but was unsure of the sauce. Not a problem, suggested they brought it as a side, it was that simple. I had the... More

Asked the taxi driver to drop us where all the bars and restaurants are as the weather wasn't looking that good and he dropped us off at the Circle. Having walked round the shops and a few bars we ended up in Tommy's which happened to be happy hour (bonus) having had a couple of sherberts we had a bite... More

The bread and butter is a perfect start. I usually avoid bread but this was a real treat. There was a second menu and I would have loved to order from it as well but I had my heart set on my choices after reading Tripadvisor reviews. I had the pork and hearts of palm salad. Others at the table... More

We visited Tommy Bahama at St. Armand's circle to celebrate my special birthday. The staff was very attentive and anxious to please. Our waiter,David,suggested a Rose' wine that they were promoting. We usually drink white, but he was so convincing we tried it and so glad we did. It was very good.love their ribs and as usual they didn't disappoint.... More

We enjoy this particular restaurant when it is cool enough to sit outside. Perfect spot for relaxing and people watching on St. ARMANDS circle. Food is consistently good.
