“Find Time to Eat at Tommy Bahama's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

We always find a way to go to Tommy Bahama when we are in the area. The service, food and ambiance is always 1st class. They have an excellent menu that includes many unique and special dishes. We shared a bottle of wine, the Scallop Sliders and the Fish Tacos. It was all excellent. We highly recommend Tommy Bahama.

“Surprisingly great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

We visited this restaurant with friends who travel to this area frequently and it was their first time as well. There was a short wait but there is so much to look at I. The surrounding area, we did not mind at all. The server was friendly and well informed and the food was delicious. We did not wait long for any of the courses to come out, it was very well paced. I would definitely return here in the future.

“Great Bar and Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Don't expect Michelin stars, but the food is very good, and served by an especially attentive staff. Take the time to spend time sitting at the bar downstairs for a drink or two, before dining. Avoid eating downstairs. Request a table on the second floor. The only real negative in season is that there are too many young children who are not appropriately supervised by parents. The result, excessive noise. Best advice, if the place is full of kids, go somewhere else.

“Our favorite by far!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

This is our favorite place to eat when in sarasota. Everything we have ever eaten here was excellent. Our favorite is the shrimp. If you go on. Friday you can get on their Facebook page and see what the "password" is for the day. If you tell them the password you get a free small appetizer. You can't go wrong with anything you order. The wait staff is always pleasant and attentive. A good dessert beverage is their BBC liqueur drink. You can even sit out on their small terrace on the second floor. In the evenings they usually have live music.

“Expensive, but great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

I was not even aware TB had a restaurant chain so was glad to experience the thrill of eating there. There was a good choice on the menu; my husband and I both had Filet Mignon which were tender and well presented. The desserts are large so shareable. We were seated right away and the service was excellent. We told the server it was our first visit and she give us a card which, if presented on our next visit, would provide a free appertizer. The manager also stopped at our table and chatted to us for a few minutes. Highly recommended.
