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.

Great drinks and awesome service, the food was delicious. Although you should bring back the birthday singing and offer a small treat

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.

Met some friends for dinner. Had the empanadas as an appetizer, dry edges and underwhelming middle. Served with two dipping sauces, one was a spicy ranch the other a marmalade. I had the grilled chicken with sweet potato mash and broccoli. Potatoes and chicken were dry. Broccoli had so much butter sauce it overflowed onto the chicken. Hubby had the seafood paella which had a ton of rice. He said it was good but not great.

I made a reservation online so I wasn’t standing more than 3-5 minutes before I was seated. Food was delicious, waitress was kind and funny. 10/10 will return again.
