We arrived there and was seated. Not one person came to our table for over 30 minutes when we went and found them. After taking our order the waiter came back with our appetizers but no silverware or plates for anyone. We had to go find him again and ask for that. Then he came back to our table with our drinks and forgot 2 of our drinks. When we finally got our food we asked for one meal be prepared go to...didn't happen. And he wanted to charge us for a drink that's included I the kids meal. We spoke to the manager on duty and he seems very nonchalant about us explaining our experience. He did comp our drinks but for that horrible service I shouldn't have had to pay for anything. If you're planning to go here DO NOT! Go anywhere other than here. Food is just ok and the service is poor at best. If I could I'd give them 0 or even negative stars.

Attacked by flies the entire time of dining outside. Spent over half the time waving flies away from my food and on my legs. I’m sure there are tiki torches that could be used to reduce the amount of flies.

Other than that the service was great. I ordered their new mango salmon and that was was a huge disappointment for $17.99

We made reservations for 630pm got seated at 655pm. Once seated our waitress Amanda came over took our drink order , returned to the table without the coffee. She took our order for appetizers n 20mins later a different waiter brought it out. She returned to take our order and left she came over and started that they had run out of ribs n asked my husband what he wanted without giving a menu to decide. Once he reordered which was 22 mins later she returned and told my mother they ran out of Tilapia n needed a new order. This is when I stop a different waiter to take her order. So it's now 8pm and we just got our entrees my mother asked for bread with her pasta which Amanda says that's gonna cost ya. We agree to the charge AMD we do t get the bread until we have finished our meals. Asked to talk to managment and NO ONE stopped by . Very dissatisfied and disappointed in this experience. We finally left . Food was great but customer service was Horrific. I spent 75.00 and felt like I had to ask for everything and not once offered a discount. Unhappy customers .

Our server was very personable and provided Excellent service. Never had to wait on refills. Food was spectacular! Dessert (coconut cake in a 1/2 coconut shell) was delicious but Quite pricey! Not really worth what they charge.

Seemed like we were being up-sold the whole time we were ordering. Husband ordered a happy hour drink and the wrong drink came (non-happy hour drink) even after the waitress came back to confirm his drink order. Tried to order happy hour half-price apps, but was told the menu had changed so what I wanted wasn’t available as advertised, but couldn’t get an explanation of what was actually available (jerk chicken wings). Kids menu said kids meals came with fruit and we never received it. Drinks were yummy and the food was good. Service could have been better though.

The meal was good, food was fresh, I had the shrimp mahi bowl with lemon grass sauce, i needed more sauce, but my husband really enjoyed his steak oscar, my friends and family all agreed everything was good just need more seasoning. Drinks were excellent, service was excellent.

We went on Mother's Day so was very crowded - but with our reservation were seating right on time. The wait staff was attentive without being overbearing and made good suggestions. The food was served hot and nicely presented and was very tasty. The portions were larger than expected so apps are very shareable. Even with the crowds waiting to be seated - did not feel rushed. Well done!

The free appetizer requires you to sign up via texting and wait for the email. I received the email, but was then told another email has to come for the free appetizer. The appetizers were 50% off as explained by Mark (Manager) The food was very good with decent portions. We were up visiting my father and sister from Chicago.

I was not happy with the quality of the food this time around. The coconut shrimp seemed overly greasy and over cooked. It almost tasted like the grease use to fry in.

First time I ever had breaded, fried lobster tail and it was surprisingly good. It came with mac n cheese that had roasted peppers in it, and fresh green beans that were not soggy. Yay! The fish and shrimp rice bowl was also good with lots of crisp vegetables. Server was very polite and helpful. I was pleasantly surprised by this "chain restaurant near the mall" kind-of-place.

Food was ok, as well as the drinks. Using Open Table was a smart choice as people were waiting in line. Glad we made advanced reservations at Open Table and only waited about 10 minutes. The biggest downfall was the waitress. Service was extremely slow and waited a long time for her to check on drink refills and to give us our bill.

I can’t remember the name of our waitress but I would rate her a 10! All the staff is pleasant and accommodating at Christiana location. Food is prepared well and the cilantro sauce is amazing! Wish I could get the recipe 😊

My family and I went on a Sunday evening after church and we knew there was going to be a wait. We set our reservations for 4:30. We walked in exactly at the time, through a crowd of waiting parties and told the waitress we had an Open Table reservation. She then looked in the book, asked my name, scratched me off the list, grabbed menus and walked us to a waiting table. No wait what so ever!!!!! I will use this app every time me and my family go out to eat anywhere.

Lunch time! Plenty of friendly staff and servers. Food was OK, I have to admit, it has been a while sine my first few visits. Back to the food, service was quick, their was just something off, just can’t place my finger on it. Maybe it was just me having a bad day. Oh and I used Open Table to make my reservations.

We had a great time, Brandon did an awesome job. It was Valentine’s Day and he managed to keep a smile on his face, even after all our absurd questions that were more than likely just wasting his time. He did a great job, so thank you Brandon. We always have great experiences at Bahamas, but Brandon did an exceptional job. Lobster is always fantástic, would love to know how the chef makes that sauce.
