Tommy Bahama Restaurant Sarasota

On our second day in Punta Gorda, we decided to do a little road trip towards Sarasota.  We decided to stay for dinner at the Tommy Bahama Restaurant Sarasota restaurant.

The Tommy Bahama Restaurant & Bar is located in St. Armands Circle and is minutes away from Lido Key, Siesta Key, Longboat Key, and Ana Maria Island.

The restaurant features a second-story dining room that has stunning sunset views. Most of the Tommy Bahama restaurants have their store within the restaurant but this is their only Island location where the restaurant and store are under different roofs.  Their apparel store just steps away in the Pink Quadrant at 371 St. Armands Circle.

I love the laid back relaxing feel of the Tommy Bahama restaurants.  This is not your stuffy steak house restaurant. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

With such a tropical vibe I had to continue the theme by ordering a tropical drink. It was so delicious, all I needed was a beach to complement this drink.

A basket of warm bread was brought to our table with two different butter choices.  Plain butter and cinnamon butter – what a delicious combination.   We devoured the entire basket.

Macadamia Nut Crusted Snapper

The fish was light and flakey and the sauce and macadamia nut gave it so much flavour.

Dessert

We have already established that there is always room for dessert, but not just any dessert.  These desserts are almost too pretty to eat.  To me, their pineapple creme brûlée is their showcase dessert.  My daughter loves their Pina colada cake.

      • PINEAPPLE CRÈME BRÛLÉE Tahitian Vanilla Bean, Caramelized Pineapple
      • PIÑA COLADA CAKE Vanilla Cake, Myers Dark Rum, Diced Pineapple, White Chocolate Mousse, Toasted Coconut
