Wife really likes the glazed chicken. I had blackened fish tacos which were decent but would prefer if they had a remoulade or sauce to go with it. Live music was ok although I have seen better there before. Still a nice visit.

I’ve had so many bad experiences at this restaurant to the point where I talked to the general manager. I was then promised by the general manager that I would have great service the next time I was in and that a manager would come over and talk to me.... no one ever came to talk and I was charged 2 drinks that we never received. I hate that this is the only Bahama breeze in Jacksonville

It was my birthday with a group of 8. We had a new waitress training and her trainer. New waitress was great but her trainer was a mess. There was no communication, no real directions. Trainer didn’t tell us about drink specials, they charged me for my birthday cake.... which was to be free. We did talk to the manager and got our drinks adjusted to the special price but I was so disappointed. I love BB and go all the time. They put a huge damper on my bday. My guests weren’t happy. And we saw the new waitress leaving the restaurant crying. I was w t heck????? She did the best she could, it was her trainer who was horrible. I manage in Retail also and that is NOT how you train people. Very disappointing evening.

Using OpenTable for the first time was easy , the receptionist was very polite and all my fiancé said we have a reservation with providing the name. You also see the OpenTable logo on their computer screen.

The waitress was awful, my friend and husband went a good 10 or 15 mins with no drink at all. She would come to the table right next to us and then not even ask if everything was good w us. My friend ordered a drink and it was forgotten at the bar, by either the waitress or the bar staff.. either way, still forgotten. She asked us if we wanted to take the glasses home, we said yes and then ended up cleaning them up ourselves because the waitress was MIA.. awful experience

My husband and I went to dinner with our two small children (one was newborn). We had a reservation but still had to wait awhile before being seated. We were seated right in front of a music speaker. My newborn was often startled by the loud music so we requested to be moved. We waited 20 minutes at our table before being greeted. I had to flag down ROBYN a nearby waitress who was gracious enough to take our order. As great as Robyn was our experience was out of her control and by far the worst experience we ever had. Our reservation was at 6:45, at 8:25 my husbands dinner and my now sleeping 2 year old daughter’s food came out. My food was given to another table that was seated 45 minutes after us. Hungry and frustrated I had to wait another 20 mins for a remake. I took my dinner to go and the manager David removed my meal from our bill which was very nice. However, I don’t believe my family will be back anytime soon.

The flavor of the food and the quantity was good but not great. The cuisine is Caribbean inspired but a little bland. The restaurant was not very busy but the service was rather slow. Items that came from the bar took a long time to get delivered to the table and some items that were requested were never delivered (hot sauce and artificial sweetener for the iced tea) - both items could have been stationed on the tables to reduce the need for the wait staff to have to go and find them for each customer.

Service was very slow we waited almost 2 hours for our food to come out. I sent my food back because I lost my appetite. It also took forever to get our checks and for them to come back to give us our cards. I will never go there again prices too high as well

Birthday celebration, they don’t sing happy birthday and no real acknowledgment for the special occasion.
Food was awful. Calamari were greasy and cold. Turn them back in. Food was bland and cold. Drinks very watered down. Had to ask twice for straws. No water offered. Don’t recommend as there are other places close by.
