    This location has been there at least 10 plus years and is desperately in need of a remodel. The place is showing a lot of use and it seems tired overall - menu presentation, drinks, even the employees attire - dated. Time to refresh and renew for everyone's sake. I'll keep an eye out to see if they revamp and definitely will revisit. AZ welcomes a little island vibe on any given summer's eve.

    We found this location on open table which just happened to be in a shopping area across the street from our hotel. Service was very good after we waited entirely too long for our cocktail order. To their credit when they realized they had failed to deliver our drinks the manager accompanied the server to the table, apologized for the wait and comped the round. After the initial problem the service was excellent. Our server was very attentive without being intrusive and we all enjoyed our meal. Good food, good service and a comfortable surrounding. I would recommend Tommy Bahama's to anyone visiting the area.

    We sat in their outdoor patio for our dinner. It was very busy and they had an one man band. The selected our menu from the Restaurant Week specials. They were excellent. The appetizer salad was very good and so was the pina colada cake, but the encrusted snapper was excellent. My wife and I loved it. The service was a little slow, but they were very busy. It gave us time to enjoy our meal and have a very leisurely night. It was very enjoyable.

    We came to this restaurant during the AZ Restaurant Week and tried their specials for $30/person. My wife ordered Pinot Noir at $15; I started with the Bungalow salad and my wife had the Crab Bisque which consisted of Lump Blue Crab. The salad looked a little small, but it was plenty even when I didn't have lunch that day. My wife enjoyed her soup 'cause she loves crab. Our entrees were: Jerk Pork Tenderloin and I had the Macadamia Nut Encrusted Snapper. They were both DELICIOUS. Just the right amount of spices and cooked perfectly. We will be back for their Happy Hour which is every day and a dinner later on during the year. Our server was exceptional, polite, knowledgeable and made sure we had our water glasses filled.

    Took some friends here for restaurant week, and everything was perfect. Excellent, attentive service, very friendly. The food was, as expected, so yummy. The macademia-crusted snapper is one of the best dishes anywhere. The room did seem unusually noisy, not sure why. But we had a great time and everyone will be back.

    Took my family here for Mother's Day brunch and we really enjoyed it. My daughter ordered the kids steak which was a huge portion but she's already asking if she can go back again because she's craving it. The food was fantastic...I'm the pickiest seafood eater in Phoenix having grown up in Maine with a dad who was a fisherman, but I really enjoyed my food and my wife was ecstatic with the bisque and coconut shrimp. The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because it felt like our server disappeared quite a bit and we went long periods waiting to catch a glimpse. It was Mother's Day and I understand, but when he took my card with the check I sat 20 minutes waiting while my wife wandered off and shopped unsupervised! We will be back!

    We had a wonderful time with excellent food at Tommy Bahamas on Mothers Day. Our server was so attentive to the different needs we had (two year old, 92 year old) that he helped us get the little ones started and yet kept everything moving so it was relaxing and just the right pace. The food is always excellent and fresh.

    We had a great Mothers Day Brunch for my wife, mother in law and 3 of our 4 adult children. 5 out of 6 of us ordered a steak. For the most part, they were great. The Lobster-Mash was fantastic! a couple of the steaks were a little under-done (more rare than medium rare as ordered). Brunch was VERY busy and the slightly under-cooked steak was not that big of a deal to make a fuss over. Our server Derek was one of the best servers we have had in quite a while - GREAT personality!!! We have been here many times, and will be back again soon.

    I thought this would be a great place to take my family when I received the email for Mother's Day brunch. We arrived a little early and had to wait which was fine. When we sat down it took well over 10 min before we saw a server and once I looked over the menu I noticed there wasn't a kids brunch menu which surprised me because they have such a nice lunch and dinner one for the kids. My kids were disappointed and had to order lunch at 10am. The service was very slow even though the restaurant was far from full and when we did ask for something extra the server continued to forget. We will return for lunch or dinner but never again for brunch.

    We have visited many Tommy Bahamas restaurants and unfortunately this one fell a bit short. No bread was offered or provided and the special drinks were not as good as other locations. For example, the Key-Lime Martini was supposed to be rimmed with a graham cracker crust. Instead it had a couple of crumbs on the side of the glass. For the main course, I had the Ahi Tuna, my favorite dish as Tommy Bahamas. At this location, it was cold and quite bland. My wife had the Snapper and found it rather bland as well. Her drink, the coconut martini, was also shorted on coconut garnish. In comparison to the Tommy Bahamas in Maui, New York or Houston, this location simply did not achieve the same level of quality. Still good, but not great.

    We have enjoyed Tommy Bahamas many times over the years . . .even the one on Kona Hawaii . . . and I have some menu favorites! But we were there for dinner and I wanted the Aruba Arugula salad with scallops which is usually on the lunch menu. Mentioned this when I made reservations. Our waitress asked me if that is what I still wanted(kitchen had been alerted). Now THAT IS CATERING TO THE GUESTS! It was worth the 2 hour drive down from Prescott.

    my compliments to the manager for striving to make our situation better, though I would not allow it. I take customer service seriously anywhere we go for we worked hard for our dollars and do not give it lightly. the first person one meets is always the face of a company and they need to understand this. when a request is made and denied then five minutes later the same is given to another who just walked in has a way of leaving a very bad feeling in ones gut regardless of the excuse one comes up with, regardless. time heals all wounds though for all. again, my compliments to the manager for striving to make the situation correct.

    Our party of three enjoyed lunch recently at Tommy Bahamas, (Kierland location). We sat upstairs, and were waited on by "Dave". His menu recomendations and attentions to our every need were superb. The presentation of our food was beautiful, and dessert was devine!!! It was quite busy at lunchtime (12:30 - 1:30), so I recommend using a reservation format to make sure you don't have to wait!!!

    We asked for a quiet table for a business lunch and they aced it. The food is very good and the service outstanding. Because the size of the place is large they can accommodate both the tourists on the patio and upper level over looking the hotel and quiet areas in the back. This is my go-to place when I'm in north SD.

    The only thing that made this experience less than gratifying was what happend with the wine selection. The other gentleman at the table order a $49 bottle of Cohn Silver Label Cabernet. When the waiter came with the wine he came to me rather than the other guy to taste the wine. He showed me the wine before opening to get my approval. I did not look closely at the label and approved the wine. Well the waiter had brought out a $119 bottle of Silver Oak cabernet. We ordered a second bottle. Well when we got the bill we were surprised to say the least. We asked to talk to the manager. He said you approved the wine. He said that is why we show you the bottle. We had to admit that we had seen the bottle and had approved but were disappoineted.
