    I had made a reservation and when we arrived we were promptly seated which is awesome because I have made reservations at other places in the past and still had to wait but not here!! We went with recommendations from the waiter for dinner blackened fish tacos which were so fantastic and then had a special which included goat cheese that was to die for, a salad which was just average, a small filet with potatoes and broccoli - the filet was very soft and easy to eat could've used more flavor but it was fine and then ended with chocolate cake. It was a great date night with my hubby!!! Will for sure be back.

    Tommy Bahamas is typical chain upscale restaurant. Out of four, two dishes were quite good, stuffed shrimp and salmon with bacon risotto. Two were overpowered by the flavors added so that it wouldn't have mattered what was the meat. Ours was shrimp, coconut shrimp almost burned and dipping salsa too thick .The dishes are high priced for what you get. Good portion size. Great fresh baked bread. Nice cocktails . Loud, loud, loud! So good for a group. If you want a little more quiet, dine in garden room or outside on patio. Nice singer with guitar in bar. Very busy Friday night so hostesses stalk the table seeing if you're finished yet. Even tried clearing the dishes before we were finished eating. At this price, wouldn't expect to be rushed.

    Very good. You can tell when a restaraunt cares about what it does. It comes through in the imaginative, well prepared dishes as well as the sincere and highly competent service. It was a Thursday night with a raucous bar scene(not my favorite) but reflective of how the local customer feels about the place. Even got a call the next day thanking me and inviting any feedback.

    I'm not normally one to care much a about the expense but this quality level should not demand the price they are asking. I could have gone to Flemings for the same amount of money. It was super loud and I couldn't have a conversation, made my date with wifey more like a bad concert.

    Great tenderloin steak salad, one of the best I've ever had. but the coconut shrimp appetizers were over-cooked and not very good at all. Service was good. Recommend making reservations on concert venue nights! Easy walk over to the concert. Live music in the bar was awesome. Great singer/musician.

    My dinner was the roasted vegetable plat with chicken. The chicken was hot but everything else on the plate was barely warm. Service: Our waiter was slow bringing drinks and requests to the table. Took 30 minutes to receive our dinner cocktails. We arrived for a 6:30 reservation and was seated by 6:45. Our waiter was fast to greet us and we ordered drinks and delayed ordering diner for about 20 to 30 minutes. After we order the service went downhill. We did not complete our dinners till 10:00 due to delayed service. I like Tommy Bahamas and this is the first time I have had bad food and service. I will still go back and hopefully this was a one time problem due to the concerts at the Pavilion at least that was what we were told.

    Dined on 8/15/2014
    Me and a group of guys headed to TB's due to the large bar and wide range of food. For a Friday night in the Woodlands it was very lively, just what we wanted. The only drawback was that the seating at the bar was full, and as we arrived 45 minutes early specifically to have a couple of drinks we found ourselves having to constantly dodge waiting staff and other diners as they made their way around the bar area. When we did get seated the food was good, arrived quickly and everyone enjoyed their plates.

    First, the positives: the entrees were delicious and attractively presented, specialty cocktails were excellent, decor and setting whisk you away to the Carribean. That being said, I would recommend the restaurant; however, the night wasn't without problems. The bread that was served while we waited was so hard that it was difficult to separate into sections and near impossible to bite through. Because of this, it was also very messy leaving crumbs "raining" down on your clothes and the table. The other problem was the slow service. While our waiter was very pleasant to deal with, he obviously had too many tables assigned to him. This is one problem that we have noticed every time we dine here. Don't go unless you have plenty of time.

    Tommy's is a nice restaurant. The music was nice but so loud having a conversation was not possible if the person was sitting across the table from you. The menu was limited and over priced for the serving size. The wait staff started out good but then they became no exisitant. My glass of tea was empty and it was refilled with water, because I was not asked what was in my glass. Overall not worth the money

    Dined on 7/12/2014
    We were there on a night that there was a big concert at the Pavillion, but it was after the concert started. It took over 45 minutes to get our food after we ordered, but our server disappeared during that time. No explanations or apologies or even bread! She didn't even ask for additional drink orders. Then when we received our food, I was disappointed in the portions. We have been loyal Tommy Bahamas fans since it opened, but it has gone downhill. It was noisy too. Our group won't be going back for a long time, especially on a concert night.

    Not only does Tommy Bahamas serve amazing food, it also has the atmosphere to make a great experience top notch. TB is unmatched in the tropical oasis meets casual upscale dining genre. Great for a date and fun for all ages, this is one place you can't miss. Make a reservation before you go and don't forget to note your dining location preference in the comments/details. The Garden Room is one-of-a-kind!

    Met a friend whom I had not seen in a while for lunch. We requested a booth and were seated right away. Our waitress Alex was outstanding. Very friendly and attentive. The food is always delicious and different. I had a grilled artichoke that was out of this world. My jerk chicken tacos were good but the spice was a little overbearing. We had a very enjoyable lunch and never felt that we were being rushed. I have always had a great experience at Tommy Bahamas!
