Met a couple of friends here for lunch. We each had something different. It was all very tasty. The baked rolls were delicious. The ambiance is nice. Will return.

We come here to spend our $50 shopping card, but unfortunately for 2 people it’s hard to spend the “required” $100 minimum try as we might so it seems a bit a con job to say you can use the gift card for dining when you cannot ( alcohol cannot be included in the total bill ) so TB? You need fix this. We end up using the gift card for clothes. It may be awhile before we dine here again, awfully expensive for the very a mediocre service and the so so drinks.

I've been to this restaurants many times, but on this trip, it seemed like the staff did not feel like being there. Not a lot of people on this week night, so maybe they didn't feel like putting much effort in. Food was really good though.

We brought our cousins to celebrate their 1st day as a married couple. Bryan was excellent even though he had a big party going at the same time. The food was excellent, noise level perfect for conversations and the dessert with the candle topped it off. Thank you TB’s for making this night special.

Whenever we travel we find time to dine at Tommy Bahama. There isn't one where we live. So why? Because the food is great. Bisque, fish tacos and finishing with Pina Colada cake is a must. Fun atmosphere and good service and great food equals perfect evening.

Amazing dinner at Tommy Bahamas, one of our favorite restaurants. They always have excellent service and food. Tonight was extra special. When they overheard our friends toasting to my husband who served in the military since it was Veteran's Day, they surprised us by comping his meal. Totally unexpected. We are grateful for their generosity. So proud to be an American.

a nice luncheon with relatives was tarnished by the reveling guests at other tables which made it impossible to hear our own conversation.......staff was notified but did nothing to address the situation........no wonder most guests prefer the patio......try the nearby Gulfstream Restaurant, I wish we had...............next time.......

My mango serrano margarita started things off just right with a perfect blend of sweet, salty, and spicy. My wife also loved her classic mojito. We then had our usual coconut shrimp, which was as great as ever. She had the chicken, which was a huge breast so she took half of it home. I continued on the seafood train and tried the Thai shrimp and scallops. They were perfectly cooked, with a wonderful coconut curry sauce. We shared a malted chocolate pie with our two friends and one dessert was enough for all four of us. A great meal from start to finish with a very attentive staff.

Loved the atmosphere inside the restaurant. Cute and cozy for a pleasant casual evening out as a family. The outside patio was a little sparse, so we chose to sit inside. The bungalow salad and the ahi tuna taco appetizer was amazing. The steak was tender and good, but overpowered by the sauce it was served in. The ramen was not flavored like really good ramen usually is, which was a disappointment. No miso flavor... it was more like a hot and sour flavor. Very strange. Overall would recommend... be sure to try the tuna tacos and bungalow salad!

Very noisy could hardly hear each other especially with live music which was very annoying sound was bad and I hate shouting all night not at all relaxing I left with a headache
food is very very mediocre not served hot bread although warm is white bread hmm white bread really
Lots of high calorie options I opted for blue crab salad it was fine so if I did ever return I suggest only the salads everything else is fried or pretty heavy which is sad
