A class place that unfortunately only grabbed a little it of our evening. Went in for a pre-dinner drink at the bar--and is is classy!! Terrific service, wonderful drinks, and just a nice vibe. We will return and stay longer next time. And the dinner menu looks incredible.

Greatest dining experience in a long time Had the snapper just melted in your mouth along with a couple of excellent coconut martini. Service was super as well as the atmosphere. And the scallop sliders are not to be missed

We were disappointed in our visit. Everything was OK but not memorable or anything special. It is loud and not the most receptive. Our meals came out before both appetizers. We figured the waiter forgot it and she blamed it on the kitchen. Not good. We will not go back.

Debrah, Thank you for the review and comments. The steps of the meal should not have been in that order and I am sorry about that and would like to apologize. Issues do happen but we failed to extend some guest service and again I am sorry about that. I will review your visit with our entire staff and managers.... More

We had a great lunch at the restaurant! I had the hibiscus lime cocktail which was excellent, our table also had the ribs which were the favorite entree. For dessert we had the pineapple creme brûlée which tasted great and had such a fun presentation 😊

Server was personable and attentive. Unfortunately our experience was tarnished by the very inexperienced hostess who was clearly not suited for her role, She didn't seat us or bring menus or water when we arrived. Instead, we waited about 15 minutes for our server to come to our table (there were only about 5-6 tables at the time-but only one... More

...I found this to be the best upscale, sitting at the bar scene in the Circle area. They have some excellent food but they good do better with a wider selection of beers on tap.

2 visits to this great spot last weekend! The food is always most fresh and tasty! A great atmosphere but it's really the seasoned, professional and knowledgeable servers that make this spot as great as it is- Megan was excellent! Coconut shrimp,fish tacos and bungalow salad were our faves. The ribs were a tad disappointing Definitely will return!

A visit to St. Armand's Circle is always fun. We dropped by Tommy Bahama's at the end of a day of shopping and had a wonderful experience. The four of us ordered drinks and appetizers and were very satisfied. The chicken lollipops were a big hit as was the bacon Bloody Mary. We all left happy. The young server was... More
