Creative menu, fantastic service and the good was great. My wife had the jerk pork tenderloin and said it was the best she's ever had.

“Fantastic meal, fantastic service!”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

Tommy Bahamas is a favourite restaurant so when we were in Sandestin on vacation it was an automatic choice.
On arriving we were shown to a table that was a little cramped but it was no trouble at all for the front of house to move us somewhere more comfortable.
Our server was fantastic - nothing was too much trouble, when I asked if they still had my favourite cocktail (they didn't) she remembered it's key components and came up with something just as lovely. There was no argument when we asked to share a dessert and she was attentive all evening. The quality of the food was up to the TB high standard as you would expect - pulled pork and Grouper sandwiches both cooked perfectly.
A great evening in a great restaurant!

“Great Dining Experience”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

If you're looking for quality food and excellent service in beautiful, tropical surroundings, you won't be disappointed. There are several dining spaces from a softly lit, romantic area to a glassed-in tropical feeling area that looks out on the patio. If you prefer outside seating, your view is one of a lovely green space and palm trees.

Service was excellent (our server was Johnathan). He was knowledgeable, efficient, friendly and non-intrusive. There appeared to be a number of servers making guests feel "well cared for." Additionally, the manager kept a careful eye on the entire operation. Good management is critical and clearly, this is a well-managed restaurant.

We were very pleased with our food and some special requests were noted and easily carried out. Now, to the desserts--if you have a sweet tooth (and I do), their dessert tray makes the choice very difficult. There are a half-dozen mouth-watering offerings on the tray. I almost chose the chocolate multi-layer cake but decided on their signature dessert, the Pina Colada cake. I was delighted. Light and airy, it was a perfect ending to a relaxing dining experience.

“Worth the price”
Reviewed 28 September 2013 via mobile

We've eaten here several times. The food is great, drinks are made with fresh mixers. Servers are knowledgeable. It is not inexpensive, but definitely worth the price.
