We had a good evening at Bahama Breeze. We were seated right away. We chose BB over other nearby restaurants because we could make a reservation. Service was very good. Food was good as well although my fish wasn’t the best cut for the money. My husband ordered the jerk chicken which he enjoyed.

We went after church on Christmas Eve and we normally go to an upscale fine dining restaurant for Christmas Eve so I wasn't sure what to expect. The service is what made our meal. He was so attentive and in such good spirits for having to work it really made the experience so enjoyable. The seafood was fresh and the rest of our meal was very tasty. If this how the experience is on a holiday then we will be back for sure for a normal meal.

It was my daughters birthday.. her food was cold and my fish tacos were cold, however the kids’s orders were hot .. maybe ours was done first and they had it sitting ? Then the server brought our hot food out but my she had every single thing on the side and not “on” my tacos for some reason. It was missing the sauce but by then I was starving so I just ate.

We were sat at our table and no one approached us for 15 minutes. I went to the hostess booth and let them know and a manager came out to greet us at our table. He was very apologetic. He brought us chips and salsa and said he will find our server. Took her another 10 minutes to get to us to take our drink order. Took her 15 minutes to bring out our soft drinks. The restaurant was not busy and that should have been our first clue that it was not good. 40 minutes after seating to get our drinks and order on a slow night is absolutely unacceptable. The food was great when it finally came out.

The menu is rather extensive with a lot of focus on Jamaican and Caribbean entrees. Food was okay. My fish tacos were prepared grilled as opposed to sautéed a modification I requested, but the flour tortilla was soggy and fell apart. Liked being able to order a smaller portion and wish this option was available on more entrees. The tortilla soup was very tasty. Ashley was an excellent server.

I like other Bahama Breeze locations. But at this one, the service was very disjointed. Some dishes came out right away, others didn’t show up at all. The server was new, so I understand there is a learning curve. And the manager and others did their best to try to make it right. But even though the food was good, the overall experience wasn’t the best.

I love this restaurant. However, when we got there they did not have my reservation on the computer but they were able to accommodate us. The food took like 30 minutes when we were informed it would take only 10. Besides that, everything was good.

Had reservations but had to wait over 15 minutes. Busy restaurant and very noisy. Hostess very pleasant and felt she worked hard to get us seated at a table as requested.
Service was very good. Some slip ups on orders but worked out.

This was our first visit to Bahama Breeze for a while since we moved to Florida - and we enjoyed it as much as we enjoyed our NJ version! We made a reservation and were seated immediately with several seating options available (5:15pm on a Sunday). Our server arrived within minutes to take drink orders, and to offer suggestions from the menu. He was extremely professional, friendly and knowledgeable throughout. The food was served so promptly - hot and freshly cooked. Coconut shrimp, Goat curry and Burger - all delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed this BB and will be back

Always a great time! Huge assortment of tropical drinks, exotic salads, amazing entrees and desserts you will not be able to passup.
The only place I take out of town visitors. Because the ambiance, the decor and the caring service never fails to impress. And once they taste the food the smile never leaves their face.

We went on Mother’s Day but made a reservation so we were seated within ten minutes. My mother in law ordered a coronarita. The waitress brought her a margarita and a corona separately. When we commented she stated they didn’t have the piece. 5 minutes later the table next to us had the same drink and they brought it with the beer hook and properly assembled. When we asked the waitress she stated he brought it in. She brought us our food and didn’t provide utensils. When we told her nobody would help us so we had to pull them off an empty table she blamed it on the hostess. It was excuse after excuse without apology. Food was good and hot as usual. Staff on this day? Unprepared.

Came with my mom on Mother’s Day. We had a reservation thankfully! We were seated within 10 minutes of arriving (seeing as how busy they were that seemed like rocket speed) and our server was amazing!! Food came out quickly and was delicious!! Drinks were never empty and we had a to go order that also came out quickly after it was placed! 100% recommend this place :)

We went on Mother's Day so as expected, there were more people and noise than normal. There was an hour and a half wait so we made reservations while there. We were seated in forty five minutes. The waitress was prompt and professional. The food was great as always. In all, a great experience. We have been here several times before.

Mother’s Day lunch
Extremely busy. Having a reservation was key. Bahama Mama drink was delicious. My son had the skirt steak meal which he said was great. My mom had the coconut shrimp dinner, she can’t eat broccoli but was able to substitute. So she had yellow rice and black beans. She’s Cuban and pretty picky about her black beans. But to use her exact words “they’re surprisingly very good!” . She very rarely says that about food. The coconut shrimp was plentiful. So she took about half home. I had the shrimp and mahi bowl. It too was very good and also a large portion. The place was packed and occasionally we didn’t see our server when needed. But nothing too bad considering it was a ‘holiday ‘ of sorts. We’ll definitely return.

The food is consistent at every location. The bartender was also good. Although busy the noise volume was not too bad.
