Good home cooked food served hot right from the kitchen. Large portions. Very popular local place. Need reservation as it is always busy.

We tried an amazing little restaurant in what was formerly an old house. It was a little hard to find; it's set back from the road and the sign is dim. Based on that and the poorly lit neighborhood, we thought about going elsewhere, but the parking area was jammed, so we decided to give it a try. Wow! It... More

I am from NY and am very critical about Italian food, but I enjoy this restaurant. Make a reservation, because the location is small and it's hard to get table on weekends.

From the outside the building doesn't show much and it is sort of hard to find for the first time. The food is worth finding the restaurant though. Exquisite Italian food (love the mussels). Friendly atmosphere, great wait staff. I don't mind waiting for my food when it is this good!

This restaurant is phenomenal! I travel to the area once a month and always try to have at least one meal there during my stay. Usually I'm solo which is never an issue. The owner tipped me off to the counter and bar stools set up by the kitchen. It allows a solo diner a chance to watch the kitchen... More

Really good Italian food with a nice selection of beer and wine. Very friendly staff and owners. Not overly fancy or too pricy.

Tradewinds is very much a "locals" restaurant. Service is slow but friendly, so be prepared to wait extra long for your food. There is very little signage and haphazard parking when you get there. Make sure you ask for the dressing on the side, since your salad will be smothered otherwise. The crab cakes were very good, but the side... More

Mussels are out of this world! Putanesca is really yummy! Large portions. On previous visits the exhaust system wasn't the best. My clothes would smell of garlic when I left the restaurant! Exhaust system is better now!

We were visiting the Destin area and asked a friend for a good Italian restaurant and Tradewinds was the recommendation. Our meals were well prepared and well served. They are very popular and the seating area is small so make reservations. We got caught in Destin traffic and called ahead and they held our table for us. We will definitely... More
