Our first meal after arriving in Destin. What a great way to start a vacation! I had a local beer and my wife had a margarita. Both were excellent. The crab bisque and scallop sliders were wonderful appetizers. She loved her shrimp and grits even though the ingredients were unique. My macodania nut encrusted snapper was wonderful. Ask for a...

Good food, good drinks, good service. The atmosphere (hey, it's TB) makes for a very nice "beach" dinner. Efficient staff, good bartenders and tasty food. Prices are surprisingly reasonable. Try one of their "specialty" drinks. A worthwhile visit.

We actually ate here twice. The first night was simply for a drink & dessert. It was so good we went back the next night for dinner. We ate in the bar both times. Wonderful, wonderful food. We went for happy hour and they have select drink and appetizers for $6/each. We had the fish tacos. Soooo flavorful. Also had... More

We were pleasantly surprised. We had good food with a Caribbean influence and the service was good. We liked the area where this restaurant is in.

Their food is creative, ever changing, presented well and very delicious. We had another great meal on Wednesday July 9. This time my two daughters were with us: one is gluten intolerant and the other has a severe corn allergy. The wait staff, Deborah, and the chef Crystal, could not have more accommodating. They listened and suggested items and then... More

Ahi tuna tacos are freshly made to order including the taco shells. Definitely a must every time we eat here. Service is great & great atmosphere. Have yet to have anything I was not pleased with.

I admit we were drawn to check it out just because we wanted to know why Tommy Bahama has anything to do with food. Overall the experience was above average as well as the food. I wouldn't say I wouldn't make a trip from other options closer to us in Destin but at least the food was up to snuff.... More

We go for happy hour and the small plate specials. Usually a very lively happy hour with good food and service unless it gets overly busy. As locals we go there often. Have not eaten in dining room or from full menu.

We came here for vacation this week and Tommy Bahama's was the best. My sons enjoyed their 10 ounce filet's. (even though both thought they were more like 6 or 8 ounces). My wife and I had the pork sandwich's. The waitress was very good and the dessert was mmmmm mmmm good.
