  • "Tommy B always pleases. Great staff and food is great. Still has a "chain" feel but the food and service make up for it. Be aware that live music is playing on weekends and its very loud. Not a great place if you want a quiet meal for the weekend. Overall, we were pleased, but will most likely try something else next time."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "$5-$7 cocktails (top shelf) & appetizers everyday. Servers & bartenders are friendly. Our fave place! If you are staying at Ritz Carlton mention to them - might give you a free drink - worked for us!"

    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Food was great. Service was slow to get going. Confusion at the upstairs hostess station on who was to be seated first between the manager and the hostess. Can't say we would go back, there are better choices for atmosphere and service. The separate TB store is very nice with helpful staff."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "The fish tacos on the lunch menu are incredible. If that's not your thing then get the Cuban sandwich. One of the best I've ever had."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Lively fun atmosphere. Kid-friendly but not in a bad way. Service was slow but friendly. Father's Day menu had options but was not limited. Food wasn't a WOW but very nice. I'd go back."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Had a night early Father's day dinner. Very good. Great filet."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Even though it was a bit noisy, it gets an excellent rating because the food was great, with some very creative menu items and the service was very attentive even though the restaurant was very crowded due to special parties upstairs. Their specialty drinks were very good as well. Have eaten here many times and always had a very good experience."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Hadn't been there in yrs and didn't have fond memories. SO GLAD we went back. Really nice salads, scallop sliders are delicious. Fabulous drinks, particularly - the Spring Fling. We also enjoyed the Crab bisque. Only have had a few entrees (so far). Ribs were good & so was the Macadamemia crusted Mahi, BUT KEEP THE SAUCE ON THE SIDE. We were blessed with wonderful servers on both our visits. It is a little loud, but not so much to ruin the meal."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I went in thinking it was going to be touristy and ok since it was located in St Armand's shopping area of Sarasota. Surprisingly that was not the case. The food was very good starting with the appetizer and ending with awesome desserts. Get the Creme Brûlée! I'd highly recommend it."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "I took my wife to Tommy Bahamas for dinner on her birthday and we were not disappointed. Got a great seat on the balcony and had an absolutely incredible dinner. The flavours in the food was outstanding and Tom our waiter was great - we will definitely be back!"
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "Food was excellent. They forgot to assign a waiter to our table, but as soon as we requested help, our service was impeccable. Loved the steak salad, and was very happy they let me have it for dinner even though it was on the lunch menu. The coconut/pineapple cake is memorable...so moist and tasty. "
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The Kona encrusted ribeye steak was delicious. New on the menu in our area."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "We go here every time we visit the area and have not been disappointed once. Everything we ever get here is perfect. We always leave talking about how wonderful the food was. Atmosphere is so inviting. Feel like you're on an island somewhere. It is a little high-priced, but well worth it!!"
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "We drove to Sarasota for a nice weekend of romance. It was a good one and we enjoyed the meal here at TB. Our issue was too noisy. There was music playing, a crowded restaurant with lots of kids, and none of the managers seem to realize you could not converse with the single guy's music so loud. I suggest being more sensitive to that for future reference."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Excellent food and service - different dishes for change - wish they had more to choose from but very goos"

  • "We were very disappointed with this restaurant. The service was poor. The size of the portions w a s lists poor. Overall it was an average place with above average prices."
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "We love the atmosphere, the musician was very talented, the waiter was very helpful. The food took too long. Having a sea food and a chicken meal, everything was prepared and waiting for the chicken to be done. How do we know, the hottest food on both plates was the chicken. To be a coastal restaurant I had 4 large shrimps 4 scallops on a bed of rice, at a price of $20.+. I do thank you for Veterans discount. We will come again."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "We got stuck at a table next to a side door that employees kept going in and out, 2 tables from 8-10 girls of ages 7-10 who ran up and down the isle constantly and screamed/yelled all during our meal. Was my wife's birthday and in the past dining at TB was pleasurable. Food mediocre and ambience akin to McDonalds. Don't go there if you like romantic ambiance, and good food. Go to Beach Bistro."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "dined here on mothers day, with a reservation, and had to wait for a table for about 20 minutes. our server was great, however it took at least an hour to get our food, i'm glad i was with good company and we were not in a hurry, else i would have been very aggrevated ."

We shared a bottle of wine, the Scallop Sliders and the Fish Tacos. It was all excellent. We highly recommend Tommy Bahama."
