Great location on St.Armands Circle. We had prompt service at Happy Hour on a Saturday evening. Drinks were delicious...classic MaiTai and Basil Grapefruit Martini. Had to have the traditional coconut shrimp appetizer! Entrees were good...blackened mahi-mahi macadamia crusted snapper. Portions were not overwhelming and that's a good thing! Skipped dessert but enjoyed the meal. One of the best during our Longboat Key vacation!

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the service. We had low expectations as it is a chain restaurant. However the food was tasty and reasonably priced with the lump crap soup and coconut shrimp as must tries. The service was very prompt and professional and the restaurant was well kept and a fun atmosphere.

Went for dinner on a Friday night. Restaurant was very noisy! They use to have white tablecloths and tropical decor, it is now an open cafe. The waitress bothered us every few minutes to order. The drinks were expensive the food was ok.

They are not staffing enough waiters to cover the amount of people coming in so one waiter is working 8 to 10 tables at least at night they were. You can tell the waitress was good at her job but there’s no way to keep up with what was going on. The management dropped the ball extremely on our visit with their staffing and our children were done with their food for 25 to 30 minutes before we ever got ours

I am so sorry that you had a poor experience during your visit. We have very strict Covid protocols in place and on occasion we do have to run with less staff than is optimal in order to protect our guests and staff. We are very sorry that we let you down and look forward to hopefully regaining your trust in the future. Best regards. Jon O'Driscoll - GM

Overall, we enjoyed our dinner, but felt it wasn't worth the price. Our waitress (I think Jess?) was great and my chicken dish was delicious. My boyfriend ordered the ribeye - cooked Medium, which was served to him Rare and very flavorless. It was nice to see the staff wearing masks in a town where seemingly no one understands there's a pandemic happening. Most patrons were not wearing masks and we didn't notice management asking anyone to wear one when not eating.

We were celebrating our 51 wedding anniversary on a get away in Sarasota. We made reservations in St Armands for dinner because we really enjoy it every time we are In the area. The server was excellent, the food wa delicious as usual and everything went perfectly down to the pic we asked our server to take of us! We love the macadamia nut encrusted red snapper and it didn’t disappoint!

This is the second time we visited Tommy Bahama in the last two months. We loved it both times. Waiters and waitresses were exceptional. Our meal was delicious. We dined out side on their patio. What a lovely atmosphere. I give Tommy Bahamas a definite thumbs up.
