We had not been here in far too long. We enjoyed a drink and appetizer at the bar with great service and good conversation. We moved to dinner and had a wonderful server, Shelia, who took great care of us. We were spending a few days in Lido Beach celebrating our 20th Anniversary. The Sanibel chicken, coconut shrimp and cream Brule in a pineapple was amazing. We will be back!

Sabrina and Drake were fantastic bartenders, more friendly and personable than anyone else on the Circle! I was there between meals so no food needed. I will say the downstairs is always freezing cold. Next time I'll sit upstairs since when I went to the bathroom upstairs, I noticed it was a healthy five degrees warmer.

Went to Tommy Bahama's for our anniversary dinner. When we walked in, there was on one to greet us so we stood around for about 5 minutes until we saw a waiter and asked her where we were supposed to go. She told us we could go upstairs or stay downstairs and basically to figure it out on our own. When we got upstairs, we waited for about another 5 minutes for someone to greet us and take us to a table. This would not have been a big issue, but it was 5 PM, we had reservations, and the place was empty. Honestly, the highlight of my entire meal (outside of my husband's company) was my BBC frozen drink and maybe the loaded tot appetizer that we shared. I ordered the filet flatbread. The filet was severely under cooked (meat was borderline purple) and really fatty. My husband had a filet that was covered in some kind of gravy that tasted like it was burnt in the sauce pan. I know that this is not the restaurant's fault, but about half way through our meal, a family with 4 kids came in and it was clear that they did not have them under control. Good place to eat if you have unruly children and don't care about inconveniencing others. We got 2 desserts to go which were just "ok". We ended up ordering pizza when we got home because the food was not good and definitely not filling. Out waitress was pleasant enough, which was nice.
