Stick to fish they don’t do beef very well. It’s over done and very tough.

Tommy Bahama’s Restaurant never disappoints. Always interesting specials to try. Great place for meeting friends and family after being “locked down” for most of last year. Employees are friendly and efficient.

Associates in retail store were beyond wonderful! Excited about dressing their mannequins with the new garments and so happy to offer "open dressing rooms!"
Food was great, as always, service has gone down hill, on both of the last two dining in experiences, but the ambiance and menu favorites keep us coming back. Walking around the store and buying something summery was the perfect post lunch treat.

We were a party of three and requested an outside table. We were in the front of the restaurant (actually in the parking lot that has been modified), but it was nice and private and surrounded by trees. They have great service and the food was yummy!
This was a birthday lunch and they offered a free dessert which was delicious!

We started out at happy hour with cocktails and coconut shrimp appetizer then moved to a different outdoor table for dinner. We enjoyed wonderfully prepared Seabass, Macadamia Encrusted Snapper and Crab cakes. We shared a bottle of Malbec. Service was great!

Amazing restaurant with exceptional food and drinks. The signature coconut shrimp was off the charts delicious. The ladies enjoyed their martinis while the guys had IPA and mojitos. Crab bisque, salads, and cubano sandwiches were hits. First time guests at this location and will be coming back frequently to treat ourselves. Looking forward to attending a happy hour experience.

When I made the reservation I asked for an outside table. It was one of their options. We did not get an outside table. When I asked for the table to be changed the hostess was very rude. I also checked the box for a special occasion and stated that it was an 86th birthday. No one even mentioned it!
I asked for my burger to be cooked medium and it bled all over my plate. I will not be dining again at Tommy Bahamas any time soon😩

The food is delicious! We had the World Famous Coconut Shrimp with the delicious cole slaw, and a very delicious Cuban sandwich. So nice that they brought a very generous piece of Pina Colada cake for my birthday. Can't wait to go back.

I wish I had taken pictures of the food because the delivery of our plates were absolutely perfect! People say you "eat with your eyes", and I'll tell ya, we wanted to dive into our lunch immediately!!! The Crab Cakes (to die for) for my mother and wife, and I went with a simply chicken sandwich (my standard) with ALL the fabulous cold crisp trimmings!

One of my favorite places while in OC. Only complaint, the hostess and another gentleman near the end of meal. We had requested outside seating. When we arrived they were going to seat our party of 4 at a table for 6 in direct sun. There were a number of tables for 4 in the shade. When I asked for one that was completely shaded she acted put out and said no mumbling something about the server. She sat us at a partially shaded table with the caveat that we had to be done by 5:30 as she had reservations for the table. At 4:50 the man came up to out table to say we needed to leave by 5. There were other open tables already. Our server by the way had been fabulous. I won’t let this stop me from returning, however it did spoil an otherwise wonderful experience.

We enjoy happy hour when every we can get down here. While they have done a good job with covid spacing, you are still sitting in the parking lot with cars going by. The food an service are great. And the Mai Tais are worth the trip.

Excellent meal and and great service to celebrate a friend’s birthday! The Miso Chilean Sea Bass was delicious, perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. Great wine choices, creative cocktails and desserts, particularly the crème brûlée served in a pineapple, made for a festive, enjoyable evening.
