    It was our first time there, so our waiter made suggestions and he hit the nail on the head. I had the snapper dish and my friend had a chicken dish. Both excellent. We had the shrimp and corn fritters for appetizer and they were awesome! Overall it was a great experience and I would definitely go back to try other dishes.

    Food was not very good my steak was to fatty. Service was the best and outside seating a big plus ( everybody seems to like to freeze indoors in Orlando). Was ill the next day with bad stomach so not over impressed and no intentions to go back.

    We ate here for the last time. The hostess was good, the food was good, but the service was lacking We were seated immediately, then waited about 15 minutes for a waiter although the restaurant was empty. In the interim, 5 staff people were gathered in the center of the dining room planning for a large party arriving later. When the waiter came, we asked for the Magical Dining menu. He told us it was the same as the daily special menu (it was not). My drink was not correct. When we ordered dinner, the salads came right out, and it was obvious that they had not been freshly made. Our entrees appeared 3 minutes later. They took them back, but the staff should not allow that to happen. Entrees were very good as were desserts.

    We went here for the first time because of Magical Dining. The restaurant is very loud, so might be difficult for much conversation, but the decor is very fun, and the open air seating looked great-I regretted not requesting it. Our service was poor-our waiter was inattentive, forgetful, and overall just not helpful. After 3 of our party had ordered the steak entree, he remembered they were out of it. This would have been nice to know when we asked for the Magical Dining Menu, especially as my husband had ordered red wine specifically for it. My children 's soda's arrived 15" after the adult beverages. We had to ask for everything-refills, bread, etc. Food was ok, not outstanding. I was glad we tried it, but probably won't return.

    We've been to Tommy Bahamas for happy hour many times but never for dinner, so we decided to go for magical dining month. I'm not sure if they were busier than usual because of this but our waiter seemed completely overwhelmed and took forever to bring everything. He was nice, but seemed to forget when we had placed drink orders, etc. I had the tuna appetizer, the shrimp & grits entree, and the dessert pudding. The tuna was very fishy tasting, so much so that I couldn't eat it--surprising since I've had their tuna poke many times and it's excellent. The shrimp and grits were amazing and totally made up for the poor appetizer. Probably the best shrimp and grits I've ever had. The dessert was also great. Would go back despite slow service.

    The food was barely palatable- My guests and I ordered several items on the magical dining menu, and I was dismayed to find that each dish was either under portioned, dry, tasteless, or mushy. The selections lacked creativity, originality, presentation and freshness for what is considered a high end restaurant. The décor was stale and in dire need of updating, the seating was uncomfortable hard wood and service was indifferent, almost flippant. Except for the young chef who was accommodating and presented a small tasting of seasoned pulled pork on what seemed like a corn or polenta cake for our approval. None of these plates transported me to a “relaxed luxury” atmosphere of the islands, which is the signature of Tommy Bahamas.

    Relaxed Florida feel. It reminds me of the Florida Keys with a twist of sophistication. Great staff considering the location is in the middle of tourist alley - International Drive in Orlando. We are defiantly going back. My 7 year old loved that they served steak on the kids menu.

    We went, mainly for the name sake. We ate at Tommy Bahamas for lunch right after our morning wedding on Maui. So, we celebrated anniversary dinner at Orlando location. I like the Magical Dining plan (salad, entree, dessert for $33) Downfall? no substitutions. Who eats chard? Reservations were easy. Comfortable seating with fluffy pillows in booths. Service was great. If ordering off regular menu, the price is a bit high. Valet parking is validated fortunately.

    This was my first time at Tommy Bahama and loved it! I tried the macadamia nut encrusted snapper and it was very flavorful. Portions are perfect. My husband had the NY strip, which was also full of flavor. The only disappointment we had was in the butterscotch pudding for dessert. It was bland, but I am used to my mom's recipe growing up and there is no comparison. Key lime pie was yummy!

    We visited the restaurant for Magical Dining as this is a great way to try new restaurants each year that you have not previously visited. I would definitely return and would send groups from my hotel there for dinner. Melissa was our server and she was very attentive, and we enjoyed her very much. She gave great recommendations on the food & drink choices that were spot on for myself and my friend dining with me. Thanks for a nice evening.

    Food was great, but when it came time for our entrees to come and the whole time after it was like playing where's Waldo with our server. It would have been different if we could see she was running food or delivering a check to a table, but we had to wait (and be late to meet our friends) a long time to spot her. She was friendly and knowledgeable, just M.I.A. from halfway into our service. Food was great and we'll be back, as long as we don't have the same server haha.

    We mostly enjoy the sandwiches at our California Tommy Bahamas restaurant. When seated, we were given dinner menus, which no longer carry any sandwiches (obvious attempt to drive up the bill, as most dinners cost around $30). No wonder the restaurant was empty! There were only 3 other tables with guests in a large, freezing cold room. Service was very good, as it should be with so few guests. Our biggest complaint, however, was being told that they do not validate for the adjacent parking lot - only valet. The manager offered to give us a free appetizer for our next visit. Not a solution for out-of-state tourists! Very lousy way to complete the evening, leaving a very poor taste in our mouths. No wonder the restaurant was empty!

    DRINKS: Chillax $12.00 worth maybe $4.00 - Macrostie Chardonnay very good but overpriced at $14.00 each (a bottle can be bought for $20/25.00) - was charged $4.00 for a Fau-jito that I sent back because tasteless (the waitress Shelsy forgot to take it off the check and I did not notice until after I left). FOOD (OVERPRICED): Grilled Artichoke: go to J. Alexander & check how is supposed to be done. Pork Quesadilla: tasty. Yuzu Tacos: good, but not worth the $12.00. Ahi Tacos: exceptional (the one part of our meal that was more than worth its price). SERVICE: Shelsy the waitress had to be asked to remove the plates from the table and she was just not very attentive (she was taking care of only 2 tables). A real disappointment!

    We found Tommy Bahamas several years ago, quite by chance. The first taste of the Coconut Shrimp clinched it.....we have been regular visitors since every time we manage to get over to Florida from the UK. It has been recommended to many of our friends and family who have all tried the Shrimp and come back for more! Not to be missed

    My steak was good but pricey for what it was. They had a very strange Father's Day menu with no special prices. I was almost seated next to the kitchen at a table in honor of making advanced reservations days ahead and the restaurant was not full. This was not a good choice for a special occasion because nothing special was offered.

    Our experience was very disappointing. No attention to details or anticipating customer needs ~ things that matter to a customer. Hostess greeting was lukewarm, drinks took a long time to get to the table, appetizers were served without plates, food was just okay, credit card receipt was given to me to sign without a pen, valet parking attendants were inefficient. I am in the business, and perhaps this was an isolated event, but these events are customer service basics ~ which is why we will be making other dinning choices.
