Wanted it to be better.

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.

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

BLUF:great food, attentive service, fair prices. Our party of four had reservations on a weeknight and ignored the GPS telling us to turn into a dark parking lot, there is no sign visible from the road. There is a good selection of wine and a basic selection of beer at reasonable prices. Our server was knowledgeable and quick. The restaurant... More

Very hard to find, this small out of the way restaurant just provides great food and service. We went as a group of four, and we all came away impressed. The service was very attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this restaurant, if you can find it.
