Wait time to be seated was very short which is a very good thing. Food wait time was long too long especially with 2 children. Drinks were not as good as expected. Food quality was not as great as expected. Server did not communicate well with us. This location was not what we expected at all.

Horrible!!!! It was a date with the wife. The tostones an chicken where brought not like we ordered and the ribs where super hard and when we ask for a manager the cook came out with attitude talking that “what is wrong with my food” me and my wife where shock from the poor customer service. We love Bahama Breeze that’s our go to place for our dates and even anniversary ( 7 years straight going)but this experience was so bad that we might never go again.

The food especially the Jerk Shrimp and Crab and Avocado stack were exquisite.
They were extremely busy when service was provided but they did the best job to keep up with the drinks and food orders.

Today after a long day of work decided to make a reservation at Bahama Breeze-Brandon,Fl for 9:00pm. Unfortunately we had to leave your restaurant. There was a lack of management and courteous staff. We got there around 8:30ish had to wait till 9 once I checked in at 9pm was told I had to wait for a table the hrs where crazy long (host said 1hr + wait). I made my reservation through Opentable I’m very disappointed that your Brandon location had such a disregard for my time. As a business owner I know the importance of peoples time and to waste it, like your restaurant did mine is unacceptable. I waited over 45 min and left your restaurant at 9:20 hungry and very disappointed. Don’t know if we will ever return to your Brandon location.

Our waiter was super kind. We could tell that they were short staffed based on the "Now Hiring" banner outside. The food and drinks took a while but our waiter was honest and checked on us often. Once the food arrived it was great. No complaints!

Not a bad place for a meal. The need to cram 4 adults into a booth for two was a bit much. The cramped seating was especially bothersome when there are several other tables open. The experience was more robotic rather than personal. Extra napkins brought to the table resembled the paper towels you’d dry your hands with in the restroom.

Decided on Bahama Breeze for my husband’s birthday dinner. It was a last minute decision, I saw there was an 8:00 pm time slot available at 7:40 so we jumped in the car and went. Courtney, our server, was very attentive, cordial and accommodating. We ordered bang bang shrimp, jerk wings and cheese sticks as appetizers. SO GOOD!! Our meals were of a great portion, tasty & filling! They ranged from mahi mahi tacos, to Cuban sandwich, tequila salmon, jerk roasted chicken, shrimp & chicken bowl, & chicken Alfredo pasta. All entrees arrived together and were steaming hot. With specialty drinks and a bottle of wine, a great, delicious time was had by all!

We were just at the mall and decided to go eat since we haven’t been to Bahama Breeze in a while. Sat outside which was very nice. I had the grilled chicken & tropical fruit on mixed greens salad and it was very good. My husband had the skillet simmered jerk shrimp appetizer for his meal and said it was very good also. We will definitely be back.

While I did have a reservation and had to wait for a table, they can’t control how quickly tables turn around.
Ed, our server, was great. He was training a new server and was doing very well as she took our order and took care of us. I can’t say enough good things about the service this trip.
The food was good too. All in all a great visit.

Wonderful meal. So many good things on the menu. Hard to choose. Grilled chicken with cilantro creme. Husband had Mahi and shrimp meal. Both were delicious. Prices are great. Most things had choice of small or large portions. We made reservations for 7:00. Got a text around 6:50 table was ready.
