Tommy Bahama's Restaurant & Bar - Sarasota
Mother's Day DinnerOur group of seven had a very nice Mother's Day dinner at Tommy Bahama's restaurant on 5/12/13. We had three children in our group, and they really enjoyed their meals. The kids' menu had a little more than just the regular kid items they normally have to choose from, and all of their drinks and food came out with decorations they absolutely loved. When the kids are happy and having a good time, it makes a meal out a much more pleasant experience. Our waiter was very attentive. Food was very good. Drinks were great. A nice level of background music was playing. All in all, a very good experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely Mother's Day BrunchWe made a reservation to enjoy brunch for Mother's Day at the restaurant. We requested a table by the window, which they accommodated. They had a special Brunch menu, along with their regular menu. Everything was delicious; very generous portions. The only disappointment was the fact that we couldn't order mimosas or other bar drinks until after 12pm on Sunday (our brunch was at 11am) but this was due to the county restrictions; not much the restaurant could do about it, except maybe not open their doors until 12pm to avoid confusion. Service was a little slow and sometimes inattentive, but overall a good experience given this restaurant is in a touristy area and I would visit it again despite these little snafus.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistantI have been going to this restaurant since it opened.. it is always good..5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMsummaryI highly recommend this restaurant I always go at least once when I am vacationing in Sarasota5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific SnapperEntertained customers. Group of 8. Server, Genie, was fast, professional, and friendly. One client needed vegetarian meal...no problem. Others had from swordfish to snapper, with the macadamia nut snapper being a huge hit.
Location is also great as we walked off the great meal by taking our visitors for a stroll around St. Armand's Circle after dinner.
Highly recommended.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great serviceGreat food, great service and atmosphere. A little noisy but tolerable.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our "Go TO" places!We ate right outside and were able to watch the cars and people go by on the circle. Between the 4 of us we had the Bungalo salad, The Swordfish special, the Snapper and Coconut Shrimp. It was ALL delicious. Our server was waiting inside and outside so was not very attentive. We will go back though because we love so many of their dishes!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service and food. WouldGreat service and food.

Food was great and wine was even better!4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThis remains our favouriteThis remains our favourite restaurant in the world! It's just got everything right. Whilst other's might be better value or have bigger menus these guys just make it such a comfortable experience you want to go back every time. We've developed this love for Tommys over some 15 years and are gratified that our 9 year old twins Josh and Sophie feel exactly the same. It's the first restaurant we go to. We've all got our favourite dishes I of course love the steaks and the full (and I mean FULL) rack of ribs, but the shrimps and scallops, stuffed chicken, crab cakes, coconut shrimp, in fact every dish would be a top meal anywhere. And guess what it's so good you'll see many of the staff stay for years too!If only they did hotels!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe dessert is worth the caloriesThe food was excellent. The crème brulee was served in a pineapple section and was divine.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had Easter Dinner at theWe had Easter Dinner at the Restaurant. There were many families and high noise level. We had 6 in our group and all enjoyed their dinners. Our waitress was attentive despite the mildly chaotic atmosphere.

Brad Kitchen, Waterdown, Ontario3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great and the serverFood was great and the server was on top of it. Made a reservation and ended up having to sit in a high traffic area of the bar. Was really happy having to have a $100 dinner for two people sitting at a table in the bar.
The food quality however was out of this world.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGo - it's awesome!Great menu - we love to sample from the appetizers and specials. Also - their drink menu is very creative and tasty. Our favorite place to go as soon as we land in SRQ!2/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
