We love Tommy Bahama's restaurant. Our meals were delicious as they always have been, but we were very disappointed in our service this time. We were seated in a booth adjacent to the bar. Our server was also the bartender which took precedent over serving us. We definitely felt like second class citizens this time around.

Came here as we do every year for our anniversary/my birthday celebration and had a wonderful meal. Only complaint was that they didn’t offer us the island time happy hour drink pricing menu upon arrival, we had
to ask for it. Wonderful meal as usual!

This was our third visit and the food has always been excellent. Everything is said to be fresh and prepared to order and I believe that is the truth. Nothing we have tried has that "pre-packaged" awful taste. The staff is very accomodating and the wait staff is never pushy. Great place "to do lunch!!!"

My grand daughters have been visiting the Tommy’s at St Armand’s from year one, they are now respectfully 10 and 6. No visit to MaeMae’s at spring break is complete with out a visit.
My husband and I moved to Case Key two years ago from Bird Key, we still make the trip up to Sarasota just to take the girls to Tommy’s.
We have not been disappointed yet!

Our waitress Cindy was a wonderful attentive guide through the menu and her recommendations were spot on. The crab bisque was like silk and the coconut shrimp with jicama slaw was awesome. Our pineapple mojitos were delicious and we loved the Trapeze Monk local brew to complement our meal. Blackened fish tacos were yummy with a side of plantains to dip in pineapple coconut yogurt was a perfect accompaniment. My wife’s fish and chips were simply delicious. Don’t be put off by this “chain”. We will definitely dine here again.

Tiffany was the best waitress we have ever had. Nice, cool, smart and really good at her job. Our family was having a bad day when we first came to Resort on Longboat but she definitely turned it around. Food was really good and the atmosphere was very neat as well. Definitely will try to come back.

Mango habenero margarita was truly delicious! Snapper ceviche and Blackened fish tacos were both excellent. The friendly waitress (Marianne)served complimentary servings of lobster salad/cucumber appetizers for being first time customers which was a nice touch. Will return next time we are in the area.

What a disappointment for such an amazing restaurant. The service that night was beyond poor. Our overall experience lasted for over 2 1/2 hours for a simple dinner. Slow service and not a positive attitude from the server. The food was amazing as always and it’s a shame that the Service hat night had to ruin it.

A consistently wonderful experience from the time I made the reservation, our table and of course the food. I had to call to ask for an outside table and the manager Ron could not have been more accommodating. Knowing we had a dog with us, he gave us a table that was off to the side and perfect for our family. The occasion was a traditional lunch at TB when our kids and grandkids came to visit us in SRQ. Our server was very patient and cheerful and allowed us as much time as we wanted. I highly recommend TB on St Armand’s Circle,Lido Key .

A wonderful meal was spoiled by a waitress who had a chip on her shoulder. The food was excellent and the ambiance was good however a nice meal was ruined by a waitress who had a large chip on her shoulder on a Saturday night. After becoming incredibly defensive upon delivering a strange interpretation of a manhattan, she basically avoided our table for the rest of our meal. My husbands water and beer glasses remained empty for the rest of the evening. It was a shame because the food was wonderful.

The meal and entertainment were both excellent. The service was ok but not as good as what we have experienced in the past. We believe the waitress was just having a bad night. We will return.

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.

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.
