The food tasted good going down but made me a bit sick afterwards. Heavy food, crowded atmosphere. Rushed, stressed servers. We recruited a different server than the one assigned to us because when we asked her a question she actually seemed to care. Our first waiter seemed overwhelmed and put off by the fact that we were there and that he had to work. I've been to this Tommy Bahama's before and it was not so bad but nothing special. I don't think I would go back. If you're going to go to one of the typical tourist restaurants in St. Armand's Circle, Columbia would be my pick of this.

Tommy Bahama's is such a treat. The tropical theme in the decor and the food is like nothing I can experience in my everyday life. When in Sarasota I usually fit in 2 dinners at TB because there are so many delicious items on the menu. Their chicken tortilla soup is the best! They also have fantastic coconut shrimp, crab cakes and plantain chips that are super special. Yum!

Food was cold and very expensive.Only thing warm on my plate was the sauce for the steak, not even the two tiny potatoes were done. I have had much better steak for a third the price. Will not be back

While this is also a great restaurant, the daily Happy Hour (4-6pm)here is outstanding, especially upstairs on the 'porch'. Sit and watch the St Armand's 'people parade' while sipping your $7 martini and noshing on a great appetizer. We're amazed that more people haven't discovered this gem.
