I like to take my little boy on mommy son dates to give him some time. He said he wanted steak, and we went to tommy Bahama. The child's steak is $25 but you get 2 medallions the are decently sized. I also ordered steak and Kobe was HEAVENLY! Served over mashed potatoes with sautéed greens. I had to stop... More

I'd been to the location in Naples, FL and it had a much nicer patio area than this Destin location. The inside is pretty dark and reminded me more of a pub than a breezy tropical café. I go to restaurants for ambience as much as for the food. The booth seats (I think all tables were booths inside) were... More

Coconut shrimp, great mojitos, awesome fresh bread. This place a the consistency thing down; show up early for island time dining and save some cash by eating in the bar area. I prefer to sit outside and enjoy the great view. The desserts are amazing-- save room!

This was by far the best food I have eaten in Destin!! The service was excellent. The staff was amazing and the food was out of this world. I would advise everyone try this restaurant when you visit Destin!

We had a family dinner here while staying in Destin on vacation. I am always reluctant to try "chain" restaurants while traveling, even nicer ones. However, the good reviews on TA were enough to bend my rules...and I am glad I did. From the pre-dinner drinks, appetizer, meal and dessert, everything was truly delicious. For appetizers, we had the Ahi... More

They do take reservations which is something you might want to do, but we stopped by without and only had to wait about 20-25 minutes. Love the whole upscale tropical vibe of the place. Our food was excellent and our server was extremely personable and efficient. She had great suggestions. Sometimes a server can make or break your your dinner... More

Great food and drinks; be prepared to wait as this is a very bustling popular place. Typical 'resort casual' menu pricing, which means a little on the pricier side for the overall atmosphere. Food IS very good; service very polite/attentive/friendly but a bit slow due to sheer volume of business.

I wish we had one of these in Texas! Great service from the female bartender (so sorry I cannot remember her name). Wonder duke tuna tacos. Good steak not the best... But still very good. Wonderful Key lime martini!!!!!!!! Was surprised for a clothing store restaurant.

From the hostess seating our party of six to the grand service and great taste, we were truly impressed. Two had burgers, two had a huge fish sandwich and two had better than most macaroni and cheese. All the meals were large lunch portions and our server kept our drinks full. There was no room for dessert but that's another... More
