I was looking for someplace to dine out on Easter at the last minute, also celebrating my birthday. To my surprise Bahama breezes had an opening. We were all able to quickly find something we liked to eat and enjoyed just getting outside to eat for a change. The food was delicious and even went well with the lovely cocktails that we ordered.

It was my birthday and apparently they was understaffed on a Saturday which I can imagine can be hectic... but the ordering monitors on the tables weren’t working, orders was being mixed up, I had ordered first bc I was the birthday girl bit I ended up getting my food last for whatever reason ... it could’ve been better and then one of the waiters was very rude to my guests

The server was delightful. Dark and stormy was good and the painkiller was a lil strong. Fish tacos - don’t waste your money. One piece of fish per taco. Sigh.

I arrived earlier and the hostess marked me in I explained I had a reservation for later because we were coming from out of town but arrived earlier. She said it was ok but we might have a little wait. Their walk in wait time was 45 mins. We end up waiting over 1 hour. We we asked the head hostess she told me the other hostess should not have checked us in at all that we needed to wait until our reservation time even though the were sitting right away as they had ceased to be busy. I asked why she said that's their policy on reservation. I told her Hadi known I would not have mentioned the reservation. We end up waiting 1 and half hours even though the wait for walk in was a lot less than that. I will not go back.

The food and drinks were great, I thought the pricing was very good. I wish our waitress would have pre bused our table and not left all the appetizer dishes on the table. Our waitress was very nice but wasn’t great about refilling drinks. We did have reservations and
Was seated immediately! All
In all a really good meal.

We started with the skillet simmered jerk shrimp that came with Cuban bread and jerk chicken wings. The wings were surprisingly tender and paired well with the sauce they were served with. The bread was ok. The shrimp were just ok too.

My husband ordered a mojito and I ordered a rum runner and strawberry lemonade. The rum runner wasn't that good, but the lemonade was really really sweet.

I ordered the jerk chicken with white rice and black beans. It comes with plantains, but I have an allergy, so I omitted those. My husband ordered the jerk chicken sandwich with French fries. The chicken was a half chicken that was previously cooked and sat under a heat lamp for some time by the looks of it. The flavor wasn't great and it was pretty dry. I'm glad I kept the juice from the shrimp appetizer because the rice needed it.

Overall, it wasn't good enough to return.

Made reservations, forgot our masks at home and they were ready to seat us but made me leave the restaurant to go buy some masks ($15 dollars) just to come back and be seated and wear the masks for a total of 36 seconds. I understand it’s our own fault but roughly 15 minutes to go get masks for 36 seconds... where’s the consideration? especially considering the hostess and staff had their masks on their chin themselves. they only put it on when correcting us. Didn’t like that. The food was good and the service was good.
4 out of 5. more customer consideration. But again, it was our fault.

Food was absolutely delicious! Our server needs more training. I ordered a shot of Tito’s and she returned to tell me that they were out of Tito’s, but they did have 1800 and Patron. My friend asked her to check again considering that she was offering tequilas and I had ordered vodka🤷🏽‍♀️. Anyways, they had Tito’s! My friends complained that their drinks weren’t good, one Long Island in particular. The drink was switched out to a vodka & cranberry. All in all we had a great night. We hadn’t seen each other in a while. I will definitely continue to eat at Bahama Breeze, just maybe not drink.

It was only two of us but my guest mentioned how much they enjoyed the atmosphere and ambiance at Bahama Breeze. I especially enjoyed my time this day since due to Covid 19, noise was lower since the number of people in the restaurant was less.
