Got there early, but got right in. Server was very personable, prompt & attentive. Food was excellent, tho pricey. We will go again, next time we happen to be in Sarasota.
Creative and great tasting food in a fun atmosphere.
Stopped by for lunch. Service and food was very good. I prefer to sit downstairs as it seems more adult oriented. If you have kids it seems like more families are seated upstairs. Nice restaurant.
We come to Sarasota every month from Oklahoma. Our visits usually include a trip to Tommy Bahama’s restaurant. The food is always excellent, although a little pricey. This trip we unfortunately had very poor service which tainted our visit. Usually the service is great. The Sanibel chicken is our consistent favorite entree. Great music from live entertainer plays in the evenings on weekends.
We had a party of 6 so had to call for a reservation. Very accommodating and helpful staff. We had elderly and used an elevator and seating was comfortable. We enjoyed the tasty food. Very refreshing cocktails. Overall, excellent.
Great vacation meal!
The waiter was great and the food was good but it took 45 minutes or more (almost an hour) to get our food...
Good food, good music
Coconut shrimp as an appetizer was delicious. Had the lump crab and avocado salad also a great choice.
Very disappointed in filet mignon. I recommended to dinner companions that it was best ever but was barely warm when served. It was outstanding last time I had it. Will not get again. Did not complain as did not want to make a scene
We bring our family here once every March. The food is creative and excellent from a culinary standpoint. Two of us had the seared Ahi tuna which was the best I have ever had. Our server Greg was great - personable and engaging with the family. Our two grand daughters, now 15 and 12, have always liked the place. We will keep coming and recommend it.
Terrific food and drink, and VERY friendly staff. Usually go 2times a week while in Sarasota!!
Tommy Bahama's is an upscale bar/restaurant. The food is excellent and the service always attentive and professional.
Our reservation was ready but service was slow. It took a long time to get drinks. Our waitress was wonderful and her name was Tiffany. When we arrived, people that walked in had a 2 hr wait. So glad we made a reservation!!
We always have a great experience at Tommy’s! It was very busy due to it being high season in Sarasota so a little loud but still great service! I was also very pleased to see they have added even more Vegetarian options (loved the Cauliflower tacos!) and my MIL was able to eat gluten free (she said the steak salad was amazing!).
The food was outstanding couldn’t have been better. Sitting near the door is a little chilly but didn’t bother us. Def recommend it!
The restaurant needs to hire more waitstaff during season. We waited over 1/2 hour before a waitress came to take our order. And forget getting her attention during the meal or when it was time for the check. We skipped dessert because we didn't want to wait another hour. Plus the place needs to figure out a way to make the place less noisy.
The food was excellent. We had 6 very different palates to satisfy and all were accommodated. The service was very friendly and laid back....very Island-like. The music was a nice touch and the guitar player/singer played lots of 70's and 80's music.
Finally, the tab was very reasonable.
Excellent wait staff
We all had a very enjoyable time there. The service was really good, as was the food. Will visit again for certain. The restaurant was also understanding when we made a wrong turn and ended up about 15 minutes late! Thank you!
Wonderful - all around!
Useing your app I was placed on the lower level very noisy. Having been to this restaurant at least 50 times always calling them directly to get upstairs dining room it looks like I will have to skip using this app and go back to calling directly. This ruined what is normally a nice dinner.
We live in Saint Petersburg and decided to come to your restaurant.
The server was excellent; we were not an interruption of her job.
The food was delicious.
Your food prices are quit high but I understand it is Sarasota and in St. Armands Key. It would be nice if you had a seniors menu (maybe only three items) or you would honor AAA for a 10% discount.
Really enjoyed the food and service was great. If you order the large dessert, it is enough for two plus you will take half home. Great atmosphere
Very nice meal and our waiter Nick was very attentive.
Food & service very good!!
Quality of food and service has declined unfortunately. My steak was undercooked and the chicken that my friends had tasted “chewy”.
Though the restaurant was not particularly busy, The service was spotty and we had to ask for refills of ice tea that came without the ice!
Supremely Noisy - not energetic - much too noisy - we could not hear each other talk at all !!
Food was ok but ambience made for a very unhappy evening. Will not plan on returning anytime soon.
Terrific!!!! Service and food excellent !!!
Consistently great food and ambiance!
A regular spot for us. Particularly like the coconut shrimp.
We were there to celebrate our son’s birthday.
Were seated along a dark wall and were a party of 6. The front of house staff then seated a party of 10 right behind us. The waiter struggled to keep up, the atmosphere was weird and robotic. No interaction and it was so cookie cutter.
We are down the block at the Surf Shack the night before and should have gone back there. The value at Tommy Bahamas was overrated. You are paying for the name...not the ambience, or the food.
The restaurant was so loud we could not hear anyone. My ears hurt. It took a very long time for food to arrive and part of our group did not get their food until after others had finished. We had eaten here many times and had not had such a poor experience.
Great vwnue, service, atmosohere and Food
Our first time there was on a food tour. It was great. This time meet friends there for lunch and the drinks and food were the best.
Always delicious and we always enjoy the Key Lime Pie (best there is)!
Make a reservation and if you want to sit in a particular area mention it on your reservation
Great food, live music on a Tuesday night and excellent service.
Great way to celebrate a friends birthday!
The food and drink selections are good. The atmosphere is pleasant, comfortable, clean and airy. Always received great service. When I have a special occasion this is a go-to place.
