Tommy Bahama is bringing a new restaurant concept to Sarasota. Marlin Bar, which has six other Florida locations, offers a more casual atmosphere than a traditional Tommy Bahama restaurant, with menu offerings including handhelds, salads and snacks. But don't worry—the signature coconut shrimp will be available at the new spot, which will be located at Center Point at Waterside just east of Lakewood Ranch Boulevard and University Parkway.

“Florida is a big part of our heritage and the essence of Tommy Bahama. We're excited to expand our Marlin Bar concept here,” says Doug Wood, Tommy Bahama CEO.

Marlin Bar will also feature a retail store that carries Tommy Bahama merchandise.

“Over the last 30 years, we have seen how our guests enjoy shopping at Tommy Bahama when it is combined with a restaurant," Wood continues. "We developed the Marlin Bar concept to create a more casual way for our guests to enjoy the Tommy Bahama shopping and dining experience."

Tommy Bahama Marlin Bar is scheduled to open in the spring of 2024.
