This was my families third visit to Tommy Bahama's during our weeks vacation. It was a Friday night and we had reservations a bit later in the evening, around 6:30, than our previous visits. The restaurant was "humming", very busy. Despite reservations we had to wait a bit (not too long but noticeable) while a table was prepped. We were seated in the main hallway surrounding the bar area. It was very noisy. We had difficultly conversing and the server had to bend over each of us to take our orders. Drinks, food, extra plates,... all took a good bit of time arriving at the table. As I said it was busy and the server appeared a bit overloaded. Still, everything got there and the food was hot when delivered to the table. We ate a variety of fish dishes, the macadamia nut encrusted snapper was the favorite but all were delicious. Overall Tommy Bahama's is a great place to eat. We did find it more amenable to family dining with two small children to get there early (say 5-5:30 PM) and avoid the crowds. I would also suggest asking to be seated in the "sunroom" area next to the outdoor dining or, weather permitting, outdoors. It is quieter with less foot traffic. As to a recommendation the 3 visits in a week speak to that and we will certainly return on our next trip to Destin.
Second visit for the family this week and we continued to be impressed with the food and service. We made it a feast of blackened mahi mahi tacos and sangria. Deserves another visit.
Great service and food. Very expensive. Bill for 8 people with only two glasss of wine came out to over $300. But our server was absolutely amazing and the food could not be beat.
Always great food and service. We always visit when vacationing.
Every bite from the specialty cocktail to the delicious desserts was just perfect! Our only complaint would be the server. He was very interested in telling us in detail about every item on the menu which took a significant amount of time. He was also very rude if we didn’t choose one of his favorites. He was distracted by “celebrities” dining there and didn’t seem to care about our two top. Would definitely go back but not sit in his section
Took wife and son's family of 4 to dinner. Had some cocktails and seafood fritters to start. Most everyone opted for the fish tacos. Big thumbs up on those. I had the stuffed cod special. Well prepared and yummy. Service was excellent and overall a great place to take family of all ages.
As usual the experience was delightful. The food was great and the service was exceptional. Tommy Bahamas never disappoints.
I have been several time and will defiantly return
Way to noisy -no need for music -you can’t even talk much less hear-obnoxious!
The room is way to small for that much noise!
Yes we’re looking als and came back. Loved it especially happy hour food, drinks and prices, thx
Nice place, good service and really good food. We’ve gone each time in the area, never been disappointed.
Wonderful food and service. Will definitely return.
Feels like vacation when you eat at Tommy Bahamas. Consistently great meals, fresh fish, creative cocktails (even a few fun virgin ones for the kiddos like a mojito) and beautiful interiors. Live coastal music from the bar area is always a hit with us. We have two with different food allergies & all were accommodated without sacrificing taste. As a local we enjoy it often and it’s a must when people are visiting. Save room for dessert too!
Great place to visit, especially during happy hour for live music, great cocktails and great food!
Excellent service and food! The General Manager should be very proud of the team he has in place. It speaks volumes as I truly believe your service is a reflection of the one in charge! He even visited our table to make sure we were content. Kudos Pratt and to our waitress Christine!
Great food—- great service—-with great friends !
Add to that the shopping at the Tommy Bahama Boutique and we called it asuccessful evening!
We love Tommy Bahamas! Dean is a great server!
The food and service were excellent as always but the renovation takes always from what was a cozy intimate dining experience. The earth tones and accent walls with beautiful dark wood is all painted white. The lighting used to be subdued which gave the restaurant a Casa Blanca romantic vibe. Now the lighting is everywhere making the stark white walls so bright that you have to squint for comfort. I know these decisions are probably corporate but they should have asked the customers.
Lui was our server. Amazing service. We had drinks, an appetizer and dinner. The organic salmon was the best my fiancee had ever had. He said it melted in his mouth like cotton candy. I had the cilantro ginger mahi mahi and it was to die for. Drinks were awesome. Loved everything and will be back.
Food was outstanding. Nicely prepared and presented, and. delicious. Waiter was friendly and knowledgeable.
We had a great experience.
Service and food was grest.
Tommy Bahama's is one of our favorites, we have been without due to their recent forced renovation and very glad they are back open again. Their service has and still is outstanding. Our server was great and the food even better. We will be back as much as we can.
Scallop Sliders - a must have! This is a pricey restaurant, but the food is so good, it's worth a splurge. Also recommend the Caesar salad with grilled shrimp, and they serve an excellent burger.
Making the reservation was quick and easy. Natalie followed up to confirm and inquire if had any questions prior to our actual dinner day and time. What an awesome service! The dinner was fabulous, the food came out quickly after ordering and everything was tasty and wonderful. Our server was a joy to have. She was friendly, attentive and had a wonderful sense of humor. Overall what a spectacular experience!
Bit pricey but was worth every penny! We went there on Valentine's day, food was delicious and customer service was awesome! Will definitely be back.
Melissa, our waitress, was outstanding. She was helpful in making suggestions when asked. She offered to make slight adjustments to our menu selections which enhanced our dining experience. She is great!
There were several “managers” that lurked around throughout our meal. These persons were a distraction and seemed to hover around to become a negative element to what was an otherwise most positive dining experience.
My wife and I really enjoyed our experience. The food and service were great. The atmosphere was fun. The menu offered plenty of excellent choices. The noise level was fine for the two of us.
We loved the restaurant but didn't like table location. In a corner of bar area..very noisy.
Valentines dinner. Food was great and service was too.
Try the coconut shrimp. Delicious.
Nice table location. Exceptional service. And the food was very good. I am a bit (more than a bit, actually) sensitive to background noise because of my hearing disability. So, this was a disturbance. But this is just me. It was perfectly acceptable to my date.
Excellent service , food and atmosphere
This popular restaurant takes reservations, so we highly recommend you do so! The food is great...all of it! The menu has gluten free and vegetarian options. The bar has music, so it is a more noisy than the dining areas. Outdoor dining overlooks a water fountain feature. One of our faves!
We visited here on a Monday and was surprised to hear the live music. Seems like they were trying out a new musician, so that just added to the already tropical atmosphere! Robert was a new server and very good, the service and attention was spot on. We both ordered a martini and was disappointed that my Key Lime actually had small ice cubes (not shavings) in it and was not very cold. When we ordered the 2nd one, we asked that the bartender shake it more which he certainly did. Robert explained to us that they do shake it but only with the "strainer" and not the traditional shaker. Everything we ordered was awesome and a beautiful presentation. We have been to 6+ Tommy restaurants in different destinations and always look forward to our next visit!
