Great food and impeccable service. Our waitress was one of the best I’ve ever had. She was attentive and provided options for my food allergy. She had the chef speak with us about our dinners choices and any accommodations they could or would make.

Best service in the Destin area! Great Menu for families or date night. Love the steel drums on the night we visited ! Visited several locations of Tommy Bahama and this location exceeds the others by far in service and food quality! Be sure to save room for the peanut butter pie or pineapple creme brûlée !!

 (Washington DC)·Dined on December 24, 2017

Disappointing evening. We were seated at a table that had a broken table extender. Silverware, dishes and glasses literally slid off the table. When we pointed this out the manager laughed and said she knew about it. Why sit someone at a table that it is known to be broken? I had to eat with my plate on the main portion of my table - eight inches from the edge of the table.
My husband ordered the soft shell crabs. It was inedible. They were gracious and brought another meal. But as a result he ate alone.
The restaurant is loud and makes it very difficult to have a conversation at the table.
We have been here several times at brunch and enjoyed our meal but we were very disappointed in our dinner.

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 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.
