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.

The service from the hostess and attentiveness from the waitress could've been a lot better. One of the hostesses seemed stress and was un-polite. The waitress did not check on our table as she should've. Drinks needed to be refilled and we had to ask another waitress to get us silverware.

We had come here for our first dinner as husband and wife.
Our waiter was polite but neglected to bring us silverware...and drinks.
The food was great but the experience was subpar.

Had a reservation booked which the host failed to pull up or have my table ready even with early arrival. Host ignored my and several patrons while chatting with her co-workers. Was told that outside was not being seated due to overbooking and being under-staffed (despite having requested it in the booking), only to be later seated in that section 15 minutes later. While waiting, saw several patrons enter and exit the restaurant quickly complaining about lack of people wearing masks or spacing of tables. Waitress asked for our order within 5 mins of us sitting down, then didn't return until we flagged her down 25 minutes later. Food was brought out at disproportionate times (I received my appetizer before my drink and my date didn't receive her entree until after I received mine despite placing her's first). Water tasted like it came from a dirty tap and mixed beverage was left unmade on the table for me to do so myself. Waitress kept coming by the table and giving us a look for staying and talking like we were holding others from the table. This was despite there being plenty of tables inside and not an abundance of people waiting to be seating. Restaurant was disorganized (tables and chairs stacked against the wall) and dirty (nothing looked cleaned to sanitation standards).

1st time sitting down to eat since COVID-19 was challenging but felt comfortable eating here. Couple things was little bothering. checking in social distancing was being used people was standing on top of each other. Think needs better way of checking people in. Also waiters need to wear masks completely on. Some had halfway on, under Chin, or not covering their noses.

Not a good experience tonight. Appetizers took long, no silverware. Dinner took awhile so we ended up just taking it home. Spoke to manager they took a percentage off the bill and apologized

Ordered a chicken sandwich which was extremely dry, literally just a price of chicken with lettuce and tomato, no seasonings or sauces, side of rice was rock hard, and the pasta was sitting in a super watery sauce and was over salted. Probably not coming back.

Our server must’ve been new. We ordered two drinks, ultimate margarita and patron and pineapple juice. The margarita should have came with a shot on the glass. When it got to me it was a half shot in the glass. And it was extra sweet. She literally bought my husband patron in one glass pineapple juice In another. It should have been a mixed drink but whatever.

Ordered food. Two orders of fries and 4 jerk chicken wings. We wait 15 mins server comes back they have no chicken. Ok fine I’ll take the classic salmon NOT the tequila salmon and two orders of fries. Wait 25 mins. She brings the tequila salmon with sweet potato and green beans. I said this isn’t what I ordered. She said yes you did. Then ask me to try it. Girl I’m allergic to sweet potatoes. Take it back I don’t want it this isn’t what I ordered. I’ll have nothing. Fries come 7 mins later. Cold as hell. Didn’t eat them.

It’s bothersome Because the place wasn’t packed. I mean you would think they’re refreshed and ready to serve. But no. Was there too long to have no food.

So we went here for my wife’s birthday, they were great about seating us within a timely manner for a party of 9. The biggest issue to me was the service from our waitress she never formally introduced herself, so we didn’t know her name, second wasn’t attentive at all. For example she messed up on my drink order as well as the meal/entree order of my wife. I can understand a drink but the entree my wife requested no mushrooms in her pasta, order comes out full of mushrooms, the order get corrected and we still found mushrooms in the dish, luckily my wife is not allergic like she is with coconut, another thing is she had no idea of the ingredients in some of the drinks, she just suggested nonchalantly you might be ok with this one. Which is something you don’t do when there are allergies involved, you need to be sure. We asked if they did anything for special occasions/birthdays, she rudely told us no. And to finish this horrid experience I paid with cash. And she never brought my change back for me to give her a tip, she just hid in the back. Which was extremely unprofessional to me. I understand servers survive and I was planning on being generous but she decided what she wanted to keep and that was classless to me. So I will never be back and I will make sure everyone I know is aware of the service there, I wish I knew her name so I could identify her for you guys so y’all can handle this situation cause in a way she’s a thief but I’m not making a scene over a few dollars. But felt like everyone should know about this experience.

I had the ribs. They are new and were very good. The guava BBQ sauce has sweetness but not too much. My husband always gets the jerk chicken dinner
