We enjoyed lunch at Bahama Breeze. The seafood was very good, especially for a franchise, and the service was excellent. We will return and would recommend.

It wasn’t the usual experience that I receive. The restaurant was busy. We were seated and the server was slow to take our drink orders. My normal dish that I order was removed from the menu and my drinks that I ordered were overly sweet. I probably won’t be back after this experience

Sat outside and tables were well spaced. Drinks are great and my husband had the coconut shrimp tacos which he said were fantastic. I had the small sized plate of lemongrass tilapia and shrimp which was awful. Very bland and shrimp were disgusting ( we are spoiled normally with great fresh local shrimp which these were NOT). Two very tiny pieces of bland white fish and I didn't actually taste any lemongrass either.
I have always had great service and always loved all the food I have ordered but that was pretty gross. Next time I will order the tacos!

Very poor service. Inattentive and forgetful. We had to ask for things twice that would have come automatically with great service like plates and silverware.

our service was terrible, got there a few minutes before happy hour ended, server said she'd get our drinks out to us right away so we could order another round before 6, it was way later, took her forever to take our dinner orders, and everything else in between was mediocre. party of 5 there at 545 and we didn't get out until after 930.

They were operating at probably half capacity due to COVID so there’s no reason why service would be below average. Our server failed to bring us multiple things upon first, second, or third request. One of our drinks ordered at the beginning of service didn’t come until the end of our meal, none of the drinks were refilled without being asked, condiments never arrived upon request. One of the meals ordered was completely wrong and on top of that we were charged for a meal we didn’t even order.

Food was good as usual, server was attentive and polite. However, my wife has a pineapple allergy and ordered a drink without it and the server rang in the wrong drink and gave her one with pineapple in it. Disappointing and a big mistake to make. Management help us with the situation promptly.

we walked out! The management allowed a birthday party for 8 year olds to take over the inside! The waiter told use they had been there for 2 hours. The party had 8 adults setting at a single tables, while 10 or ?? kids were screaming and yelling at other tables. Obviously a bunch of selfish millennials pretending to be parents! The noise was intense and worst than a noisy bar crowd.

Why a manager couldn’t ask the parents to be parents and control their gang of brats is in-excusable. He/she cost you several tables who walked out or ended their dinner early.

And by the way, you have a bunch of dead and dying plants in the entry and service areas. What else are you not cleaning and maintaining the the kitchens and bar?

Shame on you!

The restaurant was fairly crowded. There was a long wait for those without reservations. While the serving staff were wearing masks, there were no customers wearing masks other than me. The restaurant is practicing social distancing which is good. The food is okay no, not great. The service was very good

The quality of food was akin to what a college kid would put together while home for the weekend. The Black Bean tacos were literally a black bean burger patty cut into fourths and put into a stale tortilla. No sauce or anything. The Calypso Shrimp Linguini consisted of noodles and painfully obvious frozen shrimp suitable for salads. That’s it. No garnishing. No tomato’s that were depicted on their online menu. My son’s burger bun was so stale he just ate the meat.

I expressed this to the waiter that the food did not match the ridiculously high prices they were charging.

The whole experience was made worse by the angry mob of people lingering around the lobby waiting at least an hour for their food.

Happy Mother’s Day Fail

Everything was very good. But, it took an hour and a half from the time we were sat (2:00) till we received our food(3:30). I’m not sure if the kitchen was understaffed but that’s ridiculous.

Really want to avoid going to bahama breeze on weekends. Staff seem to be trying hard, but the place is an organizational mess. Very poor service, extremely loud. Do not accept outside seating if they have a “musician”. Background music is louder than a jet taking off - you will leave with a headache. Food, when it finally arrives 45 minutes plus on Saturday night - is just ok.
