Was expecting a much more flavorful plate of food. My wife and I both felt that the salads and the main courses were on the bland side. If you are looking for dishes with flavor, don’t eat here. Sorry to sound so negative, but this is how we see it.

We love the steel drum music but, couldn't hear it. Too loud. Next time we'll sit in the bar area. The food was very good. We'll return

We always make a point to dine at Tommy Bahamas when we're in Destin. Great food and service. Stell drum music is our favorite. The coconut cloud martini is a must.

Upon arrival the unfriendly hostess seated us at our reserved table.....in the bar and closest table to the kitchen. Very loud. I asked if we could be seated at a quieter table since I had reservations since the day before, and it was my husband’s birthday. She said no other tables were available, and she walked away. Once our waitress came out our entire dining experience turned positive. She moved us four tables back , though still in the bar. Our waitress was wonderful and so was our food - especially the appetizers!

We really enjoy Tommy Bahamas in Sandestin for the large bar, Happy Hour Appetizers, personnel are nice.One problem is the pricing on drinks after and before Happy Hour are too high and most of the Main dinner entres are way too high priced.

We chose Tommy Bahamas for a birthday celebration. We find the food reliably great and love the atmosphere of the garden room. Our server Marlene did a great job. Two of us enjoyed the beef tenderloin salad and the other two crispy fish. Of coarse a birthday celebration would not be complete without dessert so, we had to have the chocolate lava and the peanut butter chocolate pie.

Everything here was almost perfect... with the exception of the unfortunate temperature in the restaurant. I mean the food was great; the drinks great; service was awesome, BUT it was as though there was no air conditioning. Several of us were getting very uncomfortable by the end of dinner and no explanation was provided. This should really be worked on as we have always enjoyed our visits here, but feel like going forward, we should ask if there air conditioning is working!

Food was good but the kitchen messed up 3 of the 4 plates. Fixed it ultimately but no one got to eat at same time and never offered to address on bill. Concerned since the restaurant wasn't busy and kitchen still had problems.

 (Jacksonville)·Dined on August 13, 2017

The crab bisque was excellent and the coconut shrimp good but a little overdone. Creme brulee outstanding but the pina colada cake was unimpressive. My macadamia crusted anapper was overdone and my dates shrimp and grits somewhat bland, especially the andouille (but shes cajun so likes a bit more seasoning than perhaps the average diner).
Good place for drinks, small plates amd desserts.

This is one of our favorite restaurants when we vacation in Florida every year. The food is always excellent as well as the service & atmosphere. We are never disappointed. The menu has a variety of selections as does the children's menu as well. We thoroughly enjoy Tommy Bahamas and it has become a tradition for dinner at least twice on our vacation.

My wife asked to go there for our 31st Anniversary. The food and service were excellent, we shared the scallop sliders, the lump crab and avocado salad and the stuffed shrimp and 6oz fillet. Tommy Bahamas split everything for us before coming out of the kitchen; they gave each of us a full compliment of accompaniments, wow.

Always great food and good service, Mario the manager makes a point to stop by each table when he can to make sure everything was to your liking. The mixed grilled vegetables is my Mom's favorite ad the braised beef short ribs were a great special. Deeow from Thailand took great care of us.
