Today we met friends at this restaurant for lunch. We were greeted and taken to our table exactly at the time of our reservation. The menu is extensive with something for everyone. The Bloody Mary's were tasty and went down easily. We shared coconut shrimp as a starters sit was delish. Our dining companions raved about their entrees. The only... More

I was reluctant to eat at this restaurant but I was surprised at how nice the place was. The food was good. We had a nice lunch. Fish tacos and fish and chips. It wasn't an amazing meal but this is a very touristy area so it was better than I expected. Service was efficient. Try the blood orange margarita!

As with all restaurant chains, they serve the same standardized food in each location. Somebody at company headquarters determines what the menu should be, what the portions should be, what the spices and sauces should be, and what the presentation should be. I find it a bit boring. We were with a group that happen to really like the food... More

My wife and I went there for happy hour on Friday night and we were quite impressed with the bar and restaurant. The drinks and appetizers were excellent. Nicely decorated and the staff was friendly and helpful.

I didn't even know that Tommy Bahama had a restaurant. We took the bus from our resort to St. Armand's Circle our first night. They let us off right across the street. We were seated right away and order drinks and an appetizer. The staff was very helpful and friendly and the food was excellent. They even give you post... More

My wife and I had dinner here one evening while exploring Lido Key. The drinks and food were some of the more expensive we encountered in our travels, but the food was fantastic. Great decor, and the staff was pleasant, although it was a busy night.

This was one of our best lunches ever in Florida. The ambiance and menu choices are first rate. The Grouper bites were a fantastic appetizer---especially when followed by a first rate salad. That left room for something from the very special dessert tray displayed by our delightful & informative server. We'll return for dinner when we can get a reservation.... More
