We had all just arrived in Texas. It was a very hot day and after being on a plane for hours on end I was tired and just wanted decent service. Our waitress literally was an idiot. She kept blaming her manager. She made us wait forever for water and we had to ask for our wine bottle 3 times. We wanted Olive Oil and that was another issue...waiting half hour. The food was just average and the waitress should be replaced. No excuses for bad service...we will never have another business lunch there!
The only thing we were all delighted by was the Key Line Pie. Excellent really. But they need a new manager to run this place!

We always like this trendy restaurant in The Woodlands, Tx. Try and get a booth in the bar. The action around the bar is great to watch. Food is mostly good, service is great, adnd ambience is fabulous

Food is pretty good. The atmosphere is nice especially on the patio and the location on Market Street is fun. The food is over priced.

This was our 3rd visit to Tommy Bahama in The Woodlands. We were seated promptly upon entering the restaurant. I had a Bahama Mama drink to start off with and it was very good. It had plenty of alcohol which it should considering the $9.00 price tag. Service was a bit slow Saturday night for some reason. I think they had some big event going on out on the patio which slowed things down to a crawl in the kitchen to get food out to customers. We had the macadamia nut encrused goat cheese appetizer. It is terrific. I highly recommend that one. Very rich and sumptious. For entrees we had the Kobe burger $15.50 and the Steak salad $18.00. Both of these were terrific. Burger was juicy and tender and salad was great as always. My wife always gets the Steak Salad. The steak that is on it is well seasoned, moist and tender. The dressing it has is fantastic as well. I will recommend this place to anyone in the area who enjoys a good meal in a good atmosphere.

This is a great looking, relaxing place with a variety of seating areas from dark wood inside, to a glassed in porch with amazing high ceiling, to an outdoor patio. Lively crowd and conversation with kids play lawn adjacent so expect noise. Menu works a little too hard at the island theme, but it's fun. Have visited a few times and tried fish tacos, cuban sandwich, burgers, salads. Just ok...could have been much better. Bar drinks are great however!
