“Would go again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

We had one night out in Orlando away from the kids and went here for dinner. We went on a Wednesday night around 8 and only waited about 15 minutes for a table. It was a busy place though! The outdoor seating looked nice and had some cool music. We had a table inside by the bar, which was okay, but pretty loud, tough to hear what my husband was saying. We started with the chicken lollipops which were very tasty, even though I'm not much of a bbq sauce fan. Wish they had more macadamia nuts on them. Thought they'd be coated with them. My husband had the pork dish which I tried and was fantastic. I had the parm crusted chicken with asparagus and thought it was amazing as well. I am usually a picky eater and was a little nervous about the menu as it is quite unique, but found myself pleasantly surprised. Wish we would have saved room for dessert instead of the having the appetizer.

“Great dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We were a group of 7 adults for dinner. The service was excellent. The tropical drink selection was delish! We all ordered diferent appetizers and dinners so that we could sample off of each others plates. The food was amazing and the desserts were even better. It was a wonderdul dining experience. Can't wait to go back.

“Great food and service! Cool and different, Tommy should be proud!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

Great service with a different menu. The items in the menu are not your typical everyday dishes. I had the fillet it was great. The desserts are off the charts, save room for the pineapple creme brûlée. It is worth the calories!

“Great Choice at the Pointe!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

Ate at TB while staying at the Peabody for an event. It's an easy walk over and enjoyable after a big meal. Our server was very knowledgeable and very attentive. She gave extra special attention to my 8 year old which always helps. She said the tenderloin entree on the kids menu was the best she's ever had! Everyone enjoyed thier meals with absolutely no complaints. The key lime martini here is to die for! We'll be back when in Orlando next.
