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 shared appetizers, as well as our main meal. Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious - and the service was great!

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.

I really love this place for lunch or dinner or anything in between but not if I want an eggy breakfast! The menu is varied and interesting. Today I went with two friends for brunch and I had the blackened fish tacos - I prefer the tuna tacos but that's just my opinion as both are very good. I confess... More

We had lunch at Tommy Bahamas restaurant today. It was one of the finest restaurants I have eaten in in South West Florida. Their pulled pork would gives the Carolina's a run for their money. The Cuban Sandwich was better then anything in Miami. The Mojito was one of the best. The service was excellent. It is a little pricey... More

I hate to say this... but it seems to have gone downhill. We have had FANTASTIC experiences here but the server didnt come over for a while and the host came to check on us reeking of cigarettes. I worked in a restaurant for 10 years, there are ways to disguise that smell. However, when the server did come over... More

Visit for Happy Hour every time I'm in Sarasota. Enjoy the food, wait staff and environment. This time we enjoyed the sliders, the goat cheese and the fish taco appetizers! YUM!

Can't go wrong with the turf and surf! Steaks were done to perfection!! Shrimp stuffed with Crab were flavor-able. Sandwiches are a cut above -- recommend the chicken! Best part of a visit to Tommy Bahamas are the desserts!! Triple Chocolate Cake or the Yellow Cake with Pineapple (Piña Colada) are yummy!! Not sure about the bad reviews -- never... More
