    The great experience started with the adorable hostess who gave us a great table and our server David was simply perfect! The food was to die for delicious and the complementary dessert for my birthday was the cherry on top. Oh and the live music added such fun. Dine here for a fabulous dinner experience!

    Elliot was an excellence server. Top notch. The fries were undercooked and terrible. Please do not put anything on a plate that isn't stellar. Especially a place like Tommy Bahama. Fries are a good indicator of attention to detail. Thanks.

    First off it was so noisy due to the live music. It was impossible to have a conversation with the people at our table. When we asked the waitress to split the bill in half they charged me 50% but charged the other couple 100% of the bill. It was a disaster trying to get the bill rectified, which still hasn’t been and it’s a day later. When we spoke to the manager he said he fixed the charge but he didn’t, so now it’s being pursued by the bank. This has been nothing but a disaster and we will never return or recommend this place to anyone. WHAT A MESS!!!!

    Our server, Rose, was wonderful, as was our food! We had the Mahi stuffed with crabmeat and their baby back ribs and they were both outstanding. The Coconut Cloud Martini remains my all time favorite cocktail that any restaurant serves!

    We are regulars here , food is always excellent, would have given five stars but we were downstairs and they left all the doors open, it’s was unbearable so hot and humid . My clothes were sticky to me and we were sweating the whole time . Couldn’t wait to finish and leave . There is No reason to leave 3 doors open with 90 degree and 100 humidity.

    It was hot outside. The afternoon sun was beating down on us and we were hot. No shade. Would have been nice if umbrellas were adjustable. Ordered a pina colada and it was so strong with rum I could not drink it. I had coconut shrimp. Very good. Service was very good.

    As it was our wedding anniversary we noted this on the invitation, but sadly this was ignored. When we ordered the food we specifically asked for a gap between courses, which was also ignored and the waiter attempted twice to deliver the entrees whilst we were finishing our starters. My wife’s food then had to be re-cooked but my steak salad was not, and just left in the kitchen until service done 15 minutes later. Not an experience I would repeat which is a shame as we had previously had good experiences here.

    Generally a good venue. This time the food was fine, the service ok, and the restaurant itself looking just a little "tired". I think they need to up their game a little at the prices charged.
