Best place in town

Always busy. What does that tell you? The place where all the locals go. The food is always hot and the servings are plentiful. A fun location to take friends from out of town.

Food and service were great worth a visit. Portions are generous and they have gluten free pasta available.

Service was good, but food was nothing special. The "famous" crab cakes were a disappointment - lots of "filler" and not much crab. Pizza looked very good, should have gone with that.

my husband and i met friends here before a concert at the college. we drove by a couple of times although there is a sign in front. from the outside we thought it was a small warehouse or shop. the inside is not impressive either. although we didnt have reservations we got a table because we arrived early and were...

The Tradewinds is a local institution! It is not a fancy looking restaurant, but the food is every bit as good as a fancy restaurant, if not better! I thought that the food and service would be different after Tom's untimely death, but it is exactly the same! I highly recommend Tradewinds!!!

I've been a patron of Tradewinds since the very beginning. They catered my Senior Recital at UWF Performing Arts Center in 1998! Since Tom's passing his wife Terry has carried on mightily! Get yourself a reservation as they are always packed. Ask for Cherie and be ready for a great Tuscan dining experience on Valparaiso, FL!

Tradewinds is my favorite restaurant when I'm craving clams and pasta. Excellent menus and quality food.

One of my favorite local places! I've been going for nearly 15 years. I actually love the hole in the wall vibe at Tradewinds and would not "trade" that for anything! Lots of regulars here and folks always seem to be having a great time! Decent wine and beer selection. The menu has a nice selection of Italian dishes. I... More

We have visited Tradewinds many times and have always had fantastic food. We love the place. The staff is professional, responsive and friendly. Best Italian food on the coast. The atmosphere is relaxing and fun. Great wine and beer selection. A "must" if you've never been; won't be your last visit!

One of a kind kinky home town Italian restaurant. The decor is quite unique. It is like eating in somebody`s attic. The tables and chairs are all different,sometimes the plates do not match, but the food is great and there is always a wait. Reservations are a must. Veal parm and Lasagne are served soupy but very tasty. The bread... More
