The menu selections were fabulous. The food was very tasty & prepared to perfection. The Crab Bisque was some of the best I have ever eaten. The service was outstanding & the Key Lime pie was "to die for". An amazing dining experience!

This experience was so wonderful. We were just going for a nice dinner and it was the best place we could have picked. The service was unmatched, the food was phenomenal, and the ambiance was so nice. They had a live musician and it was so peaceful and beautiful.

Their margaritas are six stars on the five scale. The food is 4.5 on a five. Still give them a five rating.

Tommy Bahama's is our favorite place to go and Dean is the best server around. The happy hour is great and then dinner is always just as great. Always a special or two that sound good in addition to the regular menu.

It was extremely noisy and the service wasn’t great but the food was good even though it was quite expensive for what we were expecting. It should not be rated with two dollar signs it should be rated with three (on Yelp )

Fantastic service, food and ambiance. We normally don’t care for chain restaurants but Tommy Bahama in Destin never disappoints. The Blood Orange Margarita and the coconut shrimp are a must!

The restaurant was out of the bisque that my husband wanted. Then, the waitress proceeded to tell us many people had “called out” and because of Fall Break weekend they were out of many dishes. We won’t be back.

This was not our best Tommy Bahama experience. We have been to this particular location many times. We made reservations on Open Table and booked outside tables. When we arrived for our reservation the hostess looked perplexed as if they didn’t have our reservation. I showed my confirmation emails. A man who I assume was the manager that evening handled the situation quickly but stated he didn’t know why OT gave an option of sitting outside since it wasn’t possible for some reason. Our party was quickly seated in a side room which was nice. It basically went downhill from there. The server, whom I was told by the manager that he was his best, seemed pretty miffed to be at work. He was somewhat pretentious and seemed as if we were bothering him. We were a large party of 16 but very reasonable and easy going. Our reservation was for 7:30 and we finally left the restaurant at 10:00. The food took an completely insane amount of time to receive. Half of our party received their food and were finished prior to the other half. TB has been one of our favorite places in the Destin area for several years. So sad that the quality of service has diminished over our last two visits there (the other being May 2018).

Server didn’t let us know they were out of several items. So several in group were disappointed when he finally came to take orders. Long wait for even bread.
My grapefruit basil drink didn’t have any basil- I requested it- server brings it out in his bare hands and proceeds to take it from one hand to the other! Like patty cake!! And then planned to drop it into my drink!!! NO WAY.
Wondering if he got mad and did something to my food as I got SEVERE stomach distress before I could even get home. And I ate the same thing I almost always get there and have never had a problem before. Very different and very bad experience than what what we normally have

The restaurant is consistently good. Yesterday, however, it was a tiny bit off. My only complaint ever about the food there would be that I was served cold onion strings. I would have said something to the waitress about them except that she disappeared. I gave in and ate them anyway before she reappeared! My scallop sliders would have been improved by onion strings that were at least warm.

This is a very pretty restaurant in a resort town and is typical for the location—noisy, high priced, and relatively “unattractive” food quickly prepared and plated with no frills. Our service was good but the server had a number of tables so had no time to be “friendly’-just take the order and bring the food/drinks. We were allowed to split entrees and the splitting was done in the kitchen,which was nice. The salads were good but small and over-priced. Would not be our choice to visit again.

Absolutely the best Surf and Turf ever! Large group reservation, they were ready for us, served and attended to us very quickly, and everything we had was great. Steak was cooked to perfection, rolls were so hot and tasty. Key lime pie with macadamia crust was large, flavorful and delicious. Best meal had all week! Staff was professional and fun, resetting napkins designs to our delight. They made the evening so pleasant and wonderful!

The food and service far exceed what I expected at a "chain" restaurant. Superb! I go there every time I visit Sandestin now.
