Restaurant Review: Tommy Bahama’s

Last month, I won a $20 Tommy Bahama’s gift card through a Facebook promotion. Over the weekend, we put the gift card to good use and tried out the local Tommy Bahama’s restaurant.

The inside of the restaurant had a very tropical, relaxed feel.

We started our meal with French pull-apart bread that was served with cinnamon + nutmeg butter.

The bread was delicious, but I wasn’t a fan of the butter. David said it grew on him, but we both agreed we prefer plain butter.

For my entree, I chose blackened fish tacos, which were topped with tomato relish, chipotle aioli, lime sour cream and Asian slaw. The tacos had a distinct taste, in a good way. Delicious. I didn’t touch the platains though.

While I thoroughly enjoyed my tacos, I have to admit that David ordered better than me (which never happens!). He ordered that day’s lunch special: rosemary encrusted chicken breast, parmesan risotto and sauteed spinach. The risotto made the dish — it was fantastic.

Overall, our lunch was great. The service was just OK, but the food was delicious. I’m glad we had the gift card, though, because the restaurant is a bit pricey.

We also went to see The Nutcracker (put on by the Northwest Florida Ballet) this weekend! I was in this show for about 8 years, so it’s still a little weird to be in the audience but I really enjoyed it. Great way to kick off the holiday season!

Now we just have to finish decorating our house. 🙂
