We love eating here as a family when we are in Florida. It has such a relaxed island vibe. The menu is very reasonable and the cocktails are amazing.

We have been to this restaurant a number of times. Food is always consistently great. There is a bar on both levels as well as outside seating. If possible, catch a sunset from the upper deck area. Great place to people watch as well.

Try the ribs! Very popular restaurant which has always been a favourite for us. Once again the ribs were excellent. Great salads and Key Lim Pie. Best to book at peak times.

Wish I could remember her name, we had the best server ever. Besides the bloody mary's being awesome, so were the rolls, and the ahi tuna tacos. Thanks you Tommy Bahama's Sarasota for being on top of your game!
