    The atmosphere was great but we felt very rushed. We specifically asked that our appetizers be ordered and when they arrived to then order our entrees. It didn't happen that way. As soon as we finished our soup the entrees were served. We were out of the restaurant within an hour. The food was ok. Definitely not worth the price. Probably will not return.

    My second time to TBTC was as good as the first (Scottsdale was my first) - and was happy with my selection to surprise our family. This appears to be a dependable chain that will not let you down. The food was great. The service was exceptional with a great balance of attention without being overwhelming. I was disappointed that we arrived to a semi empty restaurant but were left with only a 4:45 dining time through Open Table. I did speak with the manager and suggested that perhaps they should release more seats when they can not fill them (if this is possible).

    I like the tropical feel of Tommy Bahamas and was a returning customer. This visit felt different though -- the waiter seemed pompous, and almost offended when we asked for bread that we saw was being delivered unsolicited to nearby tables. Also we went with my 4 yr. old daughter and her food was brought out last. That's usually a recipe for disaster.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 2/6/2009
    We were a group of 6 diners. It was a family reunion. We did find as soon as we were seated that the noise level was unbearable. We could not hear each other. So they quickly moved us to a quieter room thankgoodness. The ambiance was amazing no doubt. The service and attention was excellent. The food was expensive with add on's etc...which I feel was a way of asking for more $$ and quite lame. Nevertheless the portions were huge. This "hugeness" is a turn off. We all agreed we would rather have quality of food rather that quantity. I ordered the ribs which were done very well. My husband ordered the pork which was too much to eat. Pasta was excellent ordered by my cousin. Chicken stuffed too large. Dessert was the ultimate.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 2/6/2009
    I feel that if you spend $350 + for a party of 3 adults and 2 kids without a bottle of wine, the service should be superior. The service was more like an Olive Garden experience at a Ruth's Chris price. Eneryone enjoyed the food despite the slow service, cold coffee with grounds in it, and lack of attention to the table. The server was nice, but somewhat unprofessional and unattentive. The decor was bland in the corner that we were sat in with nothing on the walls. I had the pan seared tuna dish and it had a wonderful flavor.

    The food was delicious, the service was prompt but I wouldn't call the noise level energetic. It was loud. I don't consider noise to be energetic when I'm trying to eat. It was just loud. The open diningroom and parquet floors leave nothing to absorb the noise. Also, Open Table has a different standard for "moderate" prices than I do. Tommy Bahamas was supposed to be moderate but I found it to be pricey.

    It was okay. Service was off, didn't get bread till a minute before our meal. Got wine glass with food stuck on it. Thought the dishes were overpriced. Even a bottle of sparkling water was ridiculous. We asked for a quiet table away from kids (no offense but we always get next to the newborns) and they sat two tables of kids right next to us. The place was empty when we were there so we thought this was ridiculous. It was just okay.

We did not complain but would suggest that this is not the place for young children. However the food was delicious and the server and manager/host were very friendly and attentive.

    My husband had the TOMMY' S GREAT BIG CRISPY FISH SANDWICH and the seasoning in the breading was very strong so he had to remove the breading before eating the fish. Also, I ordered the CHICKEN SALAD JUNKANOO and, while it was a wonderful blend, it was served VERY chilled.... like it had JUST come out of the 40 degree refrigeration (which I'm assuming it had). I feel that it would have been more enjoyable if it wouldn't have been served quite so chilled. I found myself eating the fruit first just to let the salad warm up a bit before eating it.

    There were 3 Moms celebrating Mother's Day during our visit. I expected something totally different than what it actually turned out to be. When seated, we were not given enough menus, so I had to sit for a while without a menu. The floor under our chairs and table was filthy. We could not get rid of the very pesky flies and knats. For the prices on the menu, I don't think there should be bugs. I wasn't dining down in Mexico. 2.95 for a child's Sprite! How ridiculous. Again, not what I expected, especially for the prices charged.

    Resturant is convenient to the convention center, is loud, & has an unfortunate "corporate-controlled" mojo. Staff is overly concerned with their nightly "sales"; not focused on dining pleasure of the guests. Reservations don't matter, the process to get your table involves a mosh pit waiting area. Bartenders have nothing to say or converse about other than processing the credit card--too bad as the environment/furniture/ambience is cool but the service staff is controlled by the corpotate "man" and act as such. Don't go here, it is like eating at the Post Office (with dark wood) as all the staff are "scared" of some thing or somebody--WIERD!!!

    We have dined at the "Tommy's" in California a couple of times. My husband really liked the ribs, so we both had them on this occasion but unfortunately they were not to our liking this time around. The meat had to be "chewed off" the bone and the coleslaw was not to my liking. However, the restaurant was very nice and we were seated promptly, after being 15 minutes late. We will no doubt come back again, but maybe in California!! Thank-you.

    Our server did not do a good job of telling us that they were out of the side dish that came with the special (one of the reasons we ordered it); it was disappointing to have our entree arrive and then have to order a different accompaniment. However, the manager did step up and give us free dessert to cover for it. This is a restaurant to which I frequently bring out of towners because there aren't many of them nationally and they do have excellent food--this was my first negative experience here, but I will come back because of how the manager handled it.

    Our service was great and the entrees were excellent, but the brownie/coconut dessert was very disappointing. It was way too crispy. One bite, I thought I may have chipped a tooth, it was so hard. The waiter did replace it for us, but the other piece was just as hard. We should have went with the coconut cake. That looked moist and good. Also, we chose this restaurant specifically because they had live music but they had the musician "hiding" in a corner. We didn't even realize there was live music until we were leaving. I was disappointed with this as well.

We loved the tropical decor and thought the pillows on the seats were a relaxing touch. Parking is very tough in this area. The restaurant WILL validate parking in the parking garage which is approx a 10 minute walk. Overall a great experience and would love to go back.
