We were pleasantly surprised with this restaurant. While we'd seen it for years, we always assumed it was a cheesy, tourist restaurant with bland food - e.g. Margaritaville. We were wrong. The restaurant had an up-scale casual vibe with an old Florida décor. The food was island-like, as you'd expect. However, it was tastier and more substantial than what we... More

This was my first visit to Tommy Bahama's Tropical Café. The experience was wonderful. Staff members were very informative but not pushy. The food was fresh and flavorful. The soups were outstanding!

Went off-peak at about 2 PM. Excellent service, great menu. Call ahead to confirm but they told us they'd comp the valet parking for lunch & dinner (we parked in garage, but they made it up to us). Really great experience and food. Will go there again next time I get the chance.

I was with a group and was a little worried about the menu choices selected for the group meal. I should not have worried because everything was fantastic. I don't like blue cheese and the restaurant was very accommodating in serving my meal without the blue cheese. Don't leave without trying the desserts. It was a great experience.

This is my 2nd time in Orlando for a convention. We discovered Tommy Bahama Restaurant in 2015. Great food, fun atmosphere and what surprised the most- service. All people who work in that place are super nice and their service is 6 out 5. Yes it is even more than top. I want to highlight one girl- Jennifer! She went... More
