Nice restaurant

Varied menu, good attentive staff. Although when interrupted for the 4th time to ask how our dinner was we really thought it was too much and just wanted to eat our meals in peace! Good air conditioned restaurant, especially grateful for this.

We went for lunch. The ambience feels like what a Caribbean restaurant Tommy Bahama style should feel like, particularly downstairs. The crab cake appetizer was very good. The fish and chips dish was excellent. Very nice salads as well. A lively bar atmosphere exists.

Great service! Food was top notch all the way from start to finish. The bar was hitting homeruns with every concoction. Apps, main entrée, dessert, all fantastic. And the service was above and beyond.

Our group of 9 arrived at Tommy Bahama's on our trip shopping and stoping at bars/restaurants at St Armand's Cir. Our wait was a tab bit long for the bar tender to acknowledge us and our group was a little vocal about it. To her defense she was trying to settle another patrons tab and was focused elsewhere. Once she... More

Excellent KEY LIME MARTINI'S are not to be missed. ENTREES are of an ample size (value), and very tasty. Friendly wait staff promptly takes care of your every need.. Balcony overlooks St. Armand's circle (EXCELLENT HIGH END STORES, ART GALLERY'S). MANY, MANY THINGS TO SEE, AND DO WHILE AT ST. ARMAND'S CIRCLE. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

If you are at St. Armands Circle Tommy Bahama is a nice choice for dinner. The food is solid and better than you might expect for this type of a restaurant. The service is very good - attentive and prompt/friendly. The decor is exactly whet you would expect from Tommy Bahama - island cool/ Hemingway Key West theme. There was... More

The food was average and overpriced. It was so loud in the restaurant that we couldn't hear each other. It wasn't worth going to. There are other restaurants with better food and nicer ambiance.

My family & I have been coming for years. The food has been consistently good as has the service until my most recent visit. The drinks & food were as always terrific. While I paid the bill my friend had left the tip without my knowledge. Waiter took the bill & tip money then came back claiming he hadn't been... More

Nice decor, service was very friendly and attentive Nd the food is good. It is definitely on the expensive side, but the food is good. Some highlights we enjoyed were the crab cakes and smokehouse burger. The Thai shrimp and scallops could have been better but not bad. And the bread was really good. Overall nice place for a quiet...
