My husband and I were driving through and when we can we always stop for dinner. We lived in the Destin area for 20 years and have moved away now two years. Tommy Bahama was always one of our favorites. We love the macadamia nut crusted snapper and pina colada cake! It never disappoints!!

Kelsey, our server was excellent.

This is the first time I’ve had their Caesar salad with Filet added. I wasn’t thrilled with the sweet flavoring of the Filet. It ruined an otherwise tender steak. I expected a more flavorful salad but overall it was just dry romaine stalks with a few croutons and a sprinkling of cheese. I had hoped for more of a typical Caesar salad with some flavor and garlic. Definitely not a dinner salad I could recommend.

I’ve had other excellent meals there in the past and the other people in my party enjoyed their meals.

Great experience. Dinner w the family. Noise level was fine for us but prob not ideal for others near us bc of our 16 mo old. Lol. Door was delicious and we ordered a variety of apps, entrees wine and desserts. One of our faves when we’re down here. Service was fast and friendly.

I have been to Tommy Bahama in Sandestin many times on Labor Day weekend. I always take my sister and her and husband there as a tradition. The food has always been very good as is the service. The atmosphere is a little loud at times, but nothing compared to what happened on 09/07/21.
The table adjacent to me had a young child that was totally out of control. I have never been to a nice restaurant that let what was happening to continue.
The child was consistently shrieking at a shrill high enough to be on par with a dog whistle (this may be a little exaggerated) but it was loud. It was so loud it made you jump when she let out the next wave of banshee screeches.
The parents did nothing to get the situation under control except offering ice cream when we get home.
I should have asked for another table or leave. Quite frankly, I don’t know if moving would have made the evening enjoyable – she was that loud.
I did speak with the manager upon leaving. She gave me a weak response on how she tried to control the situation.
This is what should have happened – ask the group to control their child or leave and take the screech owl with them. Management is challenging, but good managers can make hard unpopular decisions—this was one of those problematic situations.
This is not a Tommy Bahama bash (the food and service were very good – I will be back next summer); it is a statement of how the management mishandled the situation.

We made a reservation for the Saturday evening of Labor Day weekend. We were seated promptly and at a booth away from the bar as requested. There were a few large tables near us that were unusually loud, making it hard to even hear our server or have a conversation. Once those tables were vacated, it was a much better experience. We had been seated near the bar on a previous dinner, and it was very noisy, so this time we requested to be away from the bar. Three of us ordered the macadamia nut crusted snapper, which was a huge portion and very good. All of us loved the almond rice. Our dining companion ordered the scallops and shrimp, which he loved. The food was very good, and once the noise level went down, it was a very good evening. We will, of course, be back.

This place was exceptional. Food was wonderful! Beautiful location and beautiful restaurant. Highly recommend reservations, especially on the weekends. My family and I went 2 times on our week long vacation. Our waiter Riley very attentive. We asked what he recommended, everything was spot on. When we went back the second time, we requested Riley again. Same great service. We had dinner there both times. I highly recommend giving this restaurant a try.

My go to for the coconut cloud martini on any visit to destin ! Sad that the menu is more limited like everywhere else I suppose due to covid? Missed having g the plantains. But the hot bread and cinnamon butter was yum as usual. Our waitress was very attentive and provided great service. I enjoyed the salmon dinner and my date had the pork chop. Both were generous and prepared as ordered. The huge piece of pina collada cake was the finishing touch but so large we had to bring half home.

The entire experience was great. I dined with my sister and son and the restaurant was perfect. You certainly get an island vibe without leaving the states. The coconut shrimp, mojito, and pineapple dessert cake were among my favorites. I will definitely be visiting again in the near future.

Love the food and drinks. Excellent server. Waaay too loud tho. Wish there was a way to keep LOUD bar noise away from main part of restaurant. Can’t carry on conversation with person across the table from you.

The manager came over and ask how our food was. He also asked how the service was. It was well said and showed interest. It was more noisy then usual but we had a great time and enjoyed the food.

First time eating at a TB restaurant. Made reservations for dinner with my family. We were seated immediately upon arrival. Drinks, appetizers, entrees and dessert were all extremely delicious!! We all enjoyed each of our meals so much we will be coming back again this week. Our server was very knowledgable and helped with our menu selections that did not disappoint. For everything we enjoyed the prices were lower than I anticipated when the bill arrived. Great family friendly restaurant.
