I dined here for the first time ever on 1/13/2020 as part of my month-long birthday celebration! I, along with my 2 friends, had a GREAT time and GREAT meals & drinks, that night! I had the lemongrass seafood combo, a friend had what I thought was THE MOST delicious version of Lobster Mac n Cheese I’ve ever seen! My other friend had an awesome salmon tostada dish which also looked amazing! We all had a bunch of colorful tropical drinks —all of which were expertly recommended by our AWESOME server Umberto(who was also phenomenally very knowledgeable, attentive, upbeat, professional and overall, GREAT to interact with throughout our dinner)!! We all would definitely come back and recommend this restaurant to our families and friends!! Easy to see how and why Bahama Breeze has thrived all these decades in the very cutthroat Schaumburg / Northwest suburban restaurant market!!

Been going to Bahama Breeze for several years. Need to be more creative and come up with better menus. Also, they charge $1.00 for water.

It took over ten minutes after being seated to have someone take our drink order. Received the main course less than five minutes after getting our appetizers. Maybe it was a off night.

Good, as usual - we eat here often. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive. My only comment is the change to the menu regarding the removal of the rice bowls. These were a favorite of ours, especially the chipotle beef bowl. So a big disappointed. Also, it would be good if the jerk chicken returned to having a side of black beans, rather than broccoli, which is usually basically raw.

Loved it! Great food and drinks! Ordered the jerk chicken pasta and it was wonderful. The sizziling jerk shrimp for apperizer is a must! Go for happy hour for great drink prices and half off appetizers that are full sized. They also have live entertainment on the enclosed patios on the weekend. The fireplace adds to the ambience of the patio. Service is always top notch.

Our family went there for New Year’s Eve. The food was terrific, however....It had been a long time since our last visit and something new was little computers on each table. Flashing, neon lights... completely disruptive. If you looked around the room, everyone had them pointing away from the table or facing down. No way to turn them off and of course they want you to pay through them. It was annoying actually. Our printer had run out of paper midway through and was reading an error message. It felt like we were at TGIF’s or a bar. We would go back, but for nothing special. That’s how annoyed we were with them.

Bahama Breeze has become one of my favorite restaurants for many reasons. I love the ambience. It makes me feel like I am in Florida, where I first ate at Bahama Breeze. We will ONLY sit by the firepit outside because we love it. I love the Bamarita drink - seriously so good! We love the Spinach & Artichoke Dip for an appetizer. I get a house salad and I have to say the dressing is my favorite I have ever had. Then I always order the Grilled Chicken Platter with Mashed Sweet Potatoes and Broccoli. One of my favorite meals ever. We always get amazing service. My favorite server is Ivan. We will be back very soon!

I’ve been a fan of Bahama Breeze for years and used to go often in Orlando, Florida. At this visit I was disappointed in the quality of the food. It didn’t taste good, was over processed And loaded with preservatives and MSG/yeast extract. Sadly I won’t be going back. Clean up your ingredients Darden Restaurants!

We enjoyed our dinner at Bahama Breeze. The food was very good and the service was great! My only complaint was that the music was too loud, which had everyone trying to talk over the music, making the noise level much too high.

This was my first time at Bahama Breeze and I think I found my go-to restaurant. I have already mentioned it to a few of my friends and we are planning to go back. The food was excellent, we had plantains, yucca cheese sticks, and empanadas. It was very filling and their drink menus are amazing. The waiter was very friendly and attentive. I will definitely be back.

We had a girls’ night out and so we were very chatty, but the waitress was very patient and kind. We didn’t feel rushed at all and the food was tasty. They even split the bills separately, but divided the cost of the appetizer four ways.

Two out of the 4 food orders came out wrong and the manager did nothing to make us feel better about it. Most places would have comped a meal. Once it came, it was cold and not very good.
