This is a favorite restaurant of ours in the desert. We are here several times a year and always come here for a delicious meal. The coconut shrimp are amazing as was the rest of our meal. The pina colada is so yummy - made to perfection. We are never disappointed here. Highly recommend.

Had a great dinner on the patio with friends. The server was great, happily adjusted the heaters for us. The food is consistently very good. Love the coconut shrimp and the ahi and salmon bowls.

The person next to us had his speakerphone on talking half the time we were there and this happened the last time we were there as well... The wait staff kept walking by no one ever said anything!! It was very annoying to say the least, but the food and service are always fantastic!!!

Girl lunch. Good food . Particularly attentive to allergies. We sat outside and there weren't enough heaters for everyone to stay warm (at lunch) but they brought us blankets for our shoulders so it was OK.

We experienced a solid performance from Tommy Bahama. We had quick and attentive service, good food and our space on the patio made it all even more fun. It's hard for me to give it five stars, but maybe I should have because this experience was all good.

2 for dinner. Coconut shrimp were great. Scallops sliders delicious.. home baked bread delicious. BBQ ribs a bit too spicy. We were too stuffed to order dessert- which we love at Tommy’s

We had a lovely lunch at Tommy's, but sadly the service wasn't up to par. We were there early, 11:30, so the place was not packed, but we rarely saw our server. We had to ask twice for bread, and he never bothered to check with us after the food was delivered to see if everything was ok, or if we wanted another glass of wine. The food was outstanding, though, so we certainly will be back.

Great food and service. Snapper is excellent as is the Mahi Mahi. The goat cheese and crab starters were very tasty, spiced just right. Our server, Patrick was on point throughout the meal, obviously a pro.

You’ll be happy you came!

My reservation was not honored and told if I wanted an immediate seat it would hv to be outside. Heat lamps had no propane. I had my 82 year old mother nor were we properly dressed. FROZE and they could care less.

My husband and I had a nice relaxing dinner. I love how our wait person, DeDe, was attentive but didn’t rush us through dinner. We both order the Miso salmon and we shared the Captiva appetizer. Everything was delicious.

Spent a very nice evening for my husband's birthday. Great waiter. Nice menu. Food was good. Only reservation (no pun intended) is that when you place your reservation through Open Table you are not advised that the table you reserve is automatically an outdoor table. We were lucky that they were able to change our table to indoors. We'll probably return for my birthday next month.

I love this restaurant but the server was horrible, rude, condescending and unfortunately I tipped her anyway. The entree I ordered was unrecognizable they did take it off and I ordered something else.

Our waiter Chris was very nice. He checked on us during our meal to make sure everything was perfect. Delicious baby back ribs, the reason for selecting Tommy Bahamas. I ordered the grilled chicken mango salad which was very good. Cocktails were yummy as was the pina colada cake with a splash of rum.
We have been here before and will continue drinking and dining at Tommy Bahamas Palm Desert. A feel of the tropics in the desert.

Benjamin was our server and he was terrific! Wow was it busy at Tommy Bahamas but the service was excellent in spite of the crowd! We were seated right away (with a reservation) and enjoyed our meal. Everything is always well prepared. Our group ordered the baby back ribs, asparagus, coconut shrimp, ahi tacos, and crab cakes. Delicious!

Not a great experience at Tommy Bahama’s since I took a few friends there to celebrate a birthday and I was specific to make sure they knew it was my friends birthday and I asked them to bring a desert but they never did. When I mentioned this to the manager on duty, he apologized but didn’t seem sincere and didn’t offer to do anything to make up for it, I’m fact he kinda blamed me for not specifying the dessert that we wanted. Basically, Tommy Bahamas ruined my fiends birthday celebration completely!
