Awesome restaurant, great mai tais,mahi tacos and shrimp.
Delicious food and drink. After lunch, their Happy Hour began and we were able to order more cocktails right at our table instead of moving to the bar. Loved it! Great service.
Excellent food, service and ambiance. It was a lovely evening to dine on the patio.
Great drinks and food for happy hour. The person playing music was really good too.
Love Tommy's! It's our go to place for island style R&R!
Our birthday celebration was great from start to finish... the food is always the best quality and taste and today's seemed like it was plated so beautifully! One piece of coconut cake was split between two of us and we still took some home, it was a nice Ending for a beautiful afternoon.
Best when the music is soft so you can talk! Great food
Server, Nick, was fantastic.
Great as always! They make the best coconut shrimp and coconut crab cakes!!!
Before you go, make a reservation. Their reservation system is through Open Table. In that reservation, request to sit either inside the main restaurant or the back patio if you want to eat outside. If not, you stand a good chance to be seated in their outdoor tent or in the small hallway next to the hostess desk.
I made a reservation months before Easter. I didn't make any special requests and when we got there, we were immediately escorted to the tent. That's OK if you don't mind sitting at a table on the warm pavement with only one side open for air. When we asked if there was anything else, we were escorted to the hallway. Even though the service was great, we felt like we should be saying hello and goodbye to the people constantly coming and going past our table. We observed during our meal that the only other people that were seated in that area were people who didn't have any reservations.
We celebrate my son’s 19th birthday and we all had an amazing time. Thank you for everything!!
Food and drinks were great! Bartenders were very nice and friendly too. We had a great time. Will be back soon 😎
Sat in the front of the restaurant with no ambience. Our waitress come over very seldom. And the crab cakes were very fishy tasting and smelling, they didn’t seem fresh at all. The cocktails had so much ice in them that after 10 minutes they were completely watered down and we didn’t finish them. So disappointing, Gulfstream is much better of a restaurant after my last two visits here,
I think it is better for lunch than dinner. It is not a particularly relaxing atmosphere.
Good food and ambience. Unable to get my iced tea refilled.......service needs to improve.
WOW!? What to eat? I've been jiving on their Blue Lump Crab & Avocado salad with capers and a caper lime vinaigrette! It's outrageous! My mom (last two times we've been there) enjoys their Coconut Crusted Crab Cakes in a Thai Chili sauce that will blow your hair back! I would say we go there (at least) twice a month and have a wonderful experience!
Lacked attentiveness in customer service. Our server was awful. We had to ask for refills on something as simple as water. Asked for butter, never came. Order was also incorrect in that an item should have been subbed for another and wasn’t. With the opening of more dine-in, there should be a focus on providing excellent customer service rather than just going through the motions. Dinner location was a special request for a birthday celebration and it made for a terrible memory.
Please do no print my name or email. Our waiter, Wes was terrific, friendly and fun, yet professional. He helped us to enjoy our visit. We all enjoyed the crab salad...totally delicious and the chocolate dessert. Thank you! We had a wonderful time!
Inside dining was nicely spaced out, tables were far from each other. We were seated in a booth, so it felt very safe. This was the third time our family has been out to a restaurant since COVID started a year ago. We had filet mignon tacos, blue crab avocado salad and pan crested halibut and margaritas. Service and food were excellent, we will be back for sure!
Wes was a great server. We loved the live music! And the Mai tais of course 🌴
Impeccable food every time!! Never disappointed! Best sliders in OC! Great service always!
The service was exceptional and the food was outstanding. This was our second time dining here and we look forward to the third occasion.
The guitar player was amazing! Great evening out.
Everything was great. The service was excellent. Really enjoyed the coconut shrimp, and the scallop sliders! Server was great
Food is always good here- can't go wrong with anything on the menu really. The manager at this location is super nice and awesome, not sure what his name is! They have live music in the bar area and the ambiance is a very nice, chill island vibe. Great happy hour menu with yummy and strong drinks. One of my favorite Newport Restaurants
Covid blues. I booked an outside table expecting the patio. Instead we got table in plastic enclosure on parking lot. Do not like 3-sided enclosure - did not seem as safe. And surely was not as nice as patio. Not awful but not a great night.
Great food, great service and great ambiance. Enjoyed the outdoors.
Food was great ! and loved the live music
Fabulous experience! Food and service were excellent. Patio was lovely.
We did happy hour. Amazing drinks. And food
Love this restaurant. The music speakers in the ceiling did interfere with our ability to easily hear our conversation. Would love if the menu offered more options. As a vegan, I always have to order two sides, which works out most of the time. All personnel are really helpful and gracious. Wonderful ambience and energy.
Tommy Bahamas is our favorite Restaurant & Store combo! EVERYTHING IS GREAT!!!
The mussels were excellent as was the lump blue crab bisque. The outdoor setting was very comfortable.
I have been a huge fan of this restaurant for years, to the point where it is my go to with celebrations. The last time I was there, we had asked three times for a glass of water (cocktails and food was served), but was told there weren't any water glasses cleaned so it would be a wait.
This time, I had requested a seat indoors on open table, and was told only outside was available when we got there. We were seated and had requested the heater to be turned on. After about 20 minutes, I asked the waiter a second time to have the heater turned on. After someone came to turn it on, it shut off five minutes later. I had requested another time and they said it was broken and did not offer us to move to a different location.
The waiter for our table was being trained. I was as patient as I could be. We ordered our salads and requested the filet mignon to be cooked medium. It came overcooked and more than well done. We had to send them back and wait another 15 minutes to have new salads brought out. Again, it was freezing without any heaters. As much as I wanted to celebrate my friend's birthday and get dessert, we both were so cold, we immediately requested the check as soon as we were done. Our waiter brought the check, and he had charged us for FOUR salads, not two. I had to track him down and bring the mistake to his attention, and he went back and ran the card again. My transaction is still pending and I am hoping it is right.
Overall, my experience couldn't be more disappointing. I love your food, and that is why I keep coming back, but it is always something every time I am there. It was even more embarrassing because I chose this location to celebrate my friend's birthday. Please take these comments to heart. I am sure I am not the only customer who has had an experience like this.
We always enjoy our meals at this restaurant. The crab cakes and coconut shrimp are fantastic and the Thai style scallops and shrimp are worth th3 trip by themselves.
Service was outstanding! Thanks Mackenzie!! Hopefully I spelled her night right! We had very good food and drink during Happy Hour. Nice that they had opened finally for inside dining as it was really cold out. Highly recommend and one of our favorite go to places!!
If you want to feel like you’re on vacation...look no further. Enjoy great drinks, yummy starters like the Macadamia-Crusted goat cheese and my favorite is the blackened mahi-mahi tacos with plantains!
We go to Tommy Bahamas for their Sunday happy hour. Their Mai Tai are the best we have found and the food is always great.
Since Tommy Bahama's in Newport already has a large patio for outdoor dining vs. a covered parking lot, the ambience was lovely. It was a chilly afternoon, and they had the heaters on which was needed. I am a difficult dinner: grain and dairy free, but founded great choices. The waitress noted that the rice had butter and pointed that out, so I could do a substitute.
Systematic racisms BLEEDS through every employee.
