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!

Food is good. We love to get a lot of small plates and share. My favorite is the plantains with the cream they come with.

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

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.
