    Last spring Sandestin had signs posted indicating that a Tommy Bahama Tropical Cafe was going to be opening somewhere in the vicinity of the new Publix. Has the restaurant actually opened yet? Does anyone know where these plans stand? Many thanks!

    I have not heard of such a place. Do you know which Publix location? By the way, for those of you at the east end of 30-A, the PCB Publix on the south side of Lake Powell is now open, and has been for a while.

    I believe it's called the Grand Boulevard Shoppes on 98, where the Publix market is located. There's also a Starbucks and a wine shop in the development. A Courtyard Marriott and a Marriott Residence Inn are also supposed to be part of the construction project, along with retail stores and restaurants.

    That would be the Sandestin Publix, and the Howard Group is the developer. You may search for a website to see any info. The two hotels are under construction, and supposedly, a movie theatre, restaurants, and office buildings are part of future development.

    There was going to be a Tommy Bahama. Last time I was down (Jan/2006) the sign was gone. Went to the one in Naples, FL and it was great. :idontno:

    Is there a dress code requiring silk shirts with goofy designs on them?

    We went to the Tommy Bahamas Restaurant in Plymouth, MI. It was great. We had a very good meal and the atmosphere was fun. It was a little contrived, which worked fine for MI but might be embarrassing at South Walton.

    Here is a review. Yeah, it was done in Arizona, but are any of them really different? Probably not. http://gosw.about.com/od/bestrestaurants/gr/tbahamas.htm
