This spot has been a family favorite since our arrival to the area 4 years ago. The location is quite hidden, non-distinct from the road, but the locals know exactly where it is! The Italian menu is simple and not overwhelming. Tradewinds truly focuses on...More

Tradewinds is one of our favorite restaurants! It's a small place, but worth the effort to plan ahead and make reservations. The menu has a variety of delicious options...something for everyone.

This was our third visit in as many years. Always a treat. Food excellent and so much better than the other places we've eaten at during our regular trips to the area. The menu is varied and dishes are cooked with skilled subtlety. No huge...More

The reviews for this place were overwhelmingly positive, but we were rather disappointed. We had the crab cake appetizer, and if we'd stopped there, I'd give them 5 stars: the crab cakes were excellent. Plenty of meat and just enough breading; perfectly seasoned. My wife...More

The crab cakes were seriously amazing. I was really sad about my seafood pasta though. There really was no flavor or seasoning. I was surprised after such raving reviews. I'd like to come back and try the pizza, give this nice little place another chance.

Former Eglin Engineer owned and cooked at this local restaurant....the food was excellent when we first went...and met the owner....and the food has continued to be a local "draw" over the years...with new chef.
