We had dinner here recently with family. We ate outside which was very nice. The crab bisque was very flavorful and rich. The crab avocado salad was also very good. My wife had mango salad which she seemed to enjoy. I asked the bartender for a specialty cocktail. I had to tell the waitress how it is made. They prepared it excellently. I did not feel the food was overpriced. After all, it is in a resort location. We might eat here again.

There are 16 of these restaurants, mostly in the US, and, yes, they also sell clothing et al just like the retail only locations. But, the restaurant is more reasonably priced for the quality of food than the retail stores. And, the food is a high quality, prepared properly, and served professionally in a relaxing atmosphere. The shrimp and lobster tacos were available as either two or three ( two was more than enough) and the crispy fish sandwich was enough for two people to share (which will be plated by the kitchen staff on two buns).
The menu was quite varied, and there was a large selection of beer, wine, tropical mixed drinks and non-alcoholic ones as well. There was even a children's menu. We will return when we are in Destin again.

Happy hour here is from 4:00 pm until 7:00 and we had some great specialty drinks for half normal price (I liked the Mojito) accompanied by typical bar appetizers. We ordered the crispy coconut Thai shrimp and it was so good we had to have an encore. Next we had the beef sliders - two small hamburgers perfectly done to our specification.

The service was very attentive. This is definitely a come back to restaurant with good value for the money along with a very friendly and accommodating staff. Well done!

My wife and I arrived at Tommy Bahama's on a Monday afternoon, having just driven from the Midwest for a week at a condo in Miramar Beach, and were interested in a late lunch.Our selections from the fairly reasonably sized menu were fish tacos and the shrimp noodle salad.
My wife enjoyed the tacos, commenting on adequate overall portion size, though the volume of the fish component was on the short side. The shrimp noodle salad was likewise of adequate volume, with certainly an adequate number of shrimp. Both items seemed fresh, both in contents and preparation.
However, neither selection contained a boldness or uniqueness of flavor. There were no "wow" moments...nothing that made us believe we needed to put this business, or these menu selections, on our must-do list.
Business was slow at our visit, yet staff personnel were generally smiley and helpful, though a bit of a wait to get bill, pay, and complete our visit.
So, our feelings are that Tommy Bahama's was good....perhaps better than good...but not up to a rating of very good. Perhaps another visit...perhaps other menu selections....who knows?

Very good dinner in a slightly upscale, relaxing environment. Seriously the most attentive dining room staff I have seen in a while.
