This is a scratch restaurant, much of everything served is made in-house and it delivers as the quality of the food was very good. I had the Fish and chips and my wife had a vegetarian meal which she stated was very good as well.... More

On a beautiful night, we walked up the wide stairs to the second floor and sat next to open windows overlooking the famous shopping circle. It was a fun and bustling view to enjoy our appetisers.

My group of six had a nice meal in a lively and happy place. The fish tacos are the best I've ever had. Everything is made from scratch and everything was tasty.

I ate here with family on a busy Friday night in the middle of the busy March season. We made reservations and we're seated promptly. We happened to be running late for a play we had tickets to, and informed our waiter of this. He was more than accommodating and graciously rushed our order and we were out in plenty... More

Group of 8 on a Sunday evening, no problem. We were seated with a short wait, it was our server first night and she did amazing. The drinks were typical Tommy's drinks but oh so good. We ordered all the desserts in the menu and we could not pick a faforite

We dined at Tommy Bahamas and really enjoyed the chicken mango salad and the coconut shrimp along with a special Mai Tai.Our server was Tariq and he was a terrific server and we found out he is from Ft Wayne Indiana and so are we! How about that!

We only had a chance to try the key lime pie, but the enthusiasm of the staff made us want to return and recommend the Tommy Bahama Restaurant.

I was waiting for friends to join me for dinner and sat at the bar. Anthony assisted me and I was greeted with a magnanimous smile. I ordered a manhattan that was incredible. My friends arrived and we had an amazing meal. My hour at the bar made my night talking to Anthony. I look forward to visiting again soon!
