We had 7:30 reservations. We would need to wait... Apparently they were understaffed. So instead of eatin upstairs like requested..to avoid a wait, we ate downstairs. It's much noisier there because of the 1/2 dividing us from the bar. While our waitress was attentive, she had too many tables. Our food was tasty but could've been much hotter. Also the elevator is really hard to use. Extremely slow... Eeds attention.

3rd time here, best food experience of the 3. Stuffed chicken was tasty and the mrs loved her mahi tacos large portion of fish. Out of bread for a weird explanation, not a big deal. Great cocktails too

Love the blue crab bisque so I have to get it everytime! Also enjoyed the Mahi Mahi very much. I was able to enjoy a sit down dinner this time, but often will pick up take out for lunch at the office and that's always great too.

We met a dear friend from Lido for dinner and TB never disappoints!
My only sadness is that the Loki Tuna Poke is no longer available. Maybe it will be back sometime...

The food was fresh. Coconut shrimp was great as always. Tried the special side of Brussels Sprouts that was on their special for the day. I would highly recommend that if it comes back! Service was excellent and they seem to be handling the “return to mostly full” well.

We loved the food and ambience of this restaurant. Our server, Thomas, was very attentive to our needs. We did have to move from the first floor to the second because the noise level was over the top at the bar. But everything else was top notch!

There were at least five tables open upstairs where we were, yet we drew the bartender as our waiter.

He was trying his best, but he was making drinks for the whole floor and balcony, as well as cleaning off tables, etc. extremely long wait to get our dinner order In well after we had finished our appetizer.

The food, I thought was great (nut encrusted snapper), my wife thought good (the coconut shrimp).

A bit pricey (over $100 with tip for 2) for what we got and no drinks.

Ate outside in front of restaurant in early evening. Sun was beating down and no awning or umbrella to block it. Drink glass had lipstick smudge.
Food was very good-Caesar salad, macadamia-crusted grouper, scallops and shrimp. I’d suggest if eating outside when sunny to avoid these tables adjoining front of restaurant. Aside from sun, passersby, many without masks, check menus at entrance and hang out a few feet away.

This was our annual friends lunch at Tommy Bahamas. My friends are snow birds and we have done this for several years. (Sadly we missed last year due to Covid) we are never disappointed. My friend asked if they could make a sandwich for him that used to be on the menu. They were delighted to meet his request. Our server was great. Food is skyways excellent. We sat outside and the perfect Florida weather only made the day better. There are many nice places to eat on St Armand”s but TB is always our choice.

Lovely atmosphere. Disapointed that the roif top was closed. Shpuld have been noted on website. Wanted to dine on roof not patio next to a car lot. Chose inside and it was very nice.
Very expensive and small portions.

We sat in the front of the restaurant it was very busy with people walking by the server didn’t come for 10 mins. And every time we asked for anything it was a long wait. They should seat people in the front. Poor experience for the cost

Food and service just wasn’t up to par. Pretty much all of our food came out at the same time, appetizers, salads, dinner. I’ve been there many times and it’s been way better. Busy spring break season I guess

Tommy Bahamas' was the perfect reprieve from the usual inland restaurant scene.
Reservations during peak hours were very difficult to come by, so we had to settle for 4:30. The early time did not takeaway from our experience....in fact, we received excellent service from our server. The drinks & Coconut shrimp were as advertised...EXCEPTIONAL!!!
I ordered the macadamia encrusted snapper with the almond rice and it was delectable to the last bite!
The others all ordered different items, ( Cuban sandwich, & Mahi Tacos) and they were also extremely pleased!

We will definitely be back again...soon!!!
