Had a great dinner with my family here last week. Tatiana took great care of us. Her drink and food suggestions were spot on. Can not wait to come back again for that delicious bread and a cucumber smash.

We've eaten here several times, all very good experiences. This time it was different. Not sure if our server was new or busy or what, but our crab bisque (AMAZING) came out quickly and our appetizers (we had them as entrees) took forever to come. Our server didn't bring our bill either, we had to go into the restaurant (we... More

The waiter recommended the ahi poke Napoleon for an appetizer. If you like ahi tuna and guacamole this is a great choice. We skipped the salad regime and split a ribeye steak with asparagus. The chef provided a small bite of smoked salmon on a cucumber with some soft cheese. Very good food and attentive service. Our waiter, Tariq, made... More

The food was very good. The seared ahi and kale salad and the grilled chicken and mango salad were light and refreshing. The atmosphere of the place is relaxing and tropical. Just as you expect from a place branded Tommy Bahama. We ate lunch on the upper level looking over St. Armand's Circle. The only complaint we had was the... More

Lovely location and delicious food! Book in advance as it can get booked up. The pulled pork quesadilla was delicious!

Lots of seating in this two-story restaurant. We sat upstairs and had a great waiter (I'm sorry I forgot his name). All of our lunches were good and the beer was nice and cold. We had no room for dessert but the waiter brought a little key lime bite-size tart for each of us (is this just for first-timers?) and... More

My family and I have dined at TB's for many years and have not once been disappointed. Although the prices have gone up, the food and service remain excellent. Candidly, this is the best place at Lido beach to have a good meal. My son's snapper was superb! I've always loved their tuna. Moreover, their Ketel One Martini and Pineapple... More

Had a wonderful dining experience. Our waiter, Anthony, very knowledgeable and helpful with menu options. Farmer's cheese appetizer, fish tacos and pina colada cake all delicious choices. Our server suggestions on point.

This is a bit pricey so we go for special occasions. Service was a bit slow but music and great food made it worth it. We love this spot and the tropical feel. Was one of our first dining experiences when we moved to Sarasota and we keep going back!

You find very special dishes on the menu as well as regular American food, such as burger. My husband chose the burger and found it delicious - very good meat! I selected the salad with filet mignon and fried shiitake and baked potato slices .... An excellent taste! Our extraordinary friendly and service-oriented waiter Anthony recommended us a marvelous creme... More
