Stopped here for dinner during spring break. There was a long wait for tables so we ate at the bar and were quickly and well served. The restaurant itself is good size with Caribbean decor, comfortable booths, outdoor seating. They make a very good mojito. We enjoyed the goat cheese appetizer and the best fish tacos ever. Would definitely return!

Had dinner here. Food was great and relatively reasonable. Better for adults than kids. Highly recommend the fish tacos!

Tommy B's is always CONSISTENT. We come here at least 2 to 3 times when we visit Destin for a week....sometimes just for happy hour and sometimes for dinner. The place is GREAT! Good food/ Wonderful service and sometimes music. You can't go wrong eating/ drinking here! Happy hour is a great deal with their appetizers ! Enjoy

Never had been to Tommy Bahama's before, so decided to give it a go with my close friend for a nice Sunday lunch. The atmoshphere was beautiful, very beach themed, we were seated right away & our waitress quickly greeted us. She was very knowledgable, professional & enthusiastic - commented on our choices and gave us her opinions.
We ordered the goat cheese as an appetizer & it was amazing! The sour cheese with the sweet mango salsa & sweet soy glaze was the perfect combination. It was an appetizer but I was still left wanting more then just the 5 'crackers'.
My girlfriend ordered the steak salad & I ordered the Parmesan chicken.
A short time later, a buser brought the steak salad & an order of stuffed shrimp. After conveying to him that we hadn't ordered the shrimp, he swept up both plates & mumbled something about going to figure it out.
About 10 minutes later, after not having seen our waitress or the buser we were able to snag the manager (who had stopped by earlier to greet us & make sure we were enjoying our app) & ask him if the shrimp/chicken had gotten sorted out. He immediately went to go check & we got our food a few minutes later. We found out later it was an error in the kitchen and the manager very generously comped the chicken.
I'm usually never one to complain, and I understand mistakes can definitely happen, but it could have been handled differently so we weren't left wondering if we had been forgotten.
Nevertheless, I will definitely go back! Our meals were delicious!! See pictures!!!

You have to get the bowl! Don't settle for the cup, you will regret not getting the bowl once it hits your taste buds!
