The food was good. After placing our drink order, it took like 20 minutes to come to the table. Also after placing our food order, it took around 40 minutes to come to the table. I usually don't mind waiting but the restaurant was not packed to take that long especially for the drinks to arrive

Always enjoy going there as the quality of food has always been good. The receiving of the food was VERY slow this time though. Unusual. Also, our server had to be reminded to check on the food. When he did check, at two different times, the food seemed to arriver shortly after. Otherwise, we were pleased with everything.

Waiter was not knowledgeable about menu. My food arrived BEFORE my appetizer even after asking about it. Food was not good. Ribs had a lot of fat. Will not dine here again.

shrimp/lobster with pasta was ordered. too much pasta. I took a doggy bag and had
mostly pasta for 2 days. less pasta would be good. serve with side instead; veg. or salad.

i had salmon. cooked just right (hate salmon or fish cooked dry) salsa on top was yum.
green beans were terrific (waitress told me they were out of and could i use broccoli or asparagus. i chose asparagus but got green beans anyhow) sweet potatoes mashed were
very good but portion was huge next to green beans. would have preferred more green
beans and less sweet potatoes. all in all yummy. would order again.

When we arrived we were told there was a 2.5 hour wait and that we would need to sit at the bar. However, we quickly pulled up Open Table and found a reservation for 2 that was only 10 minutes from our arrival time. We booked it and went back to the hostess station to check in with our reservation. While we sat there eating we noticed no other parties coming in. The restaurant was not crowded. There was no crowd waiting. The whole experience was bizarre. They were out of several food items. Two of the mixed drinks we ordered were very good but we were unable to order a couple of their signature frozen drinks like the Bahamarita. They were apparently out of some of the ingredients. The food was just ok. The mahi fish tacos tasted like they had been heated up from frozen. It definitely wasn’t worth the money and wasn’t the same experience we had a few years ago.
I hate it if this is a result of the pandemic.

It was my birthday but I thought the staff was suppose to acknowledge it. I put that on my reservation ahead of time but again no one acknowledged it. Not sure what your policy is on that but I was disappointed. My family I had a good time .

I’ve been to Bahama breeze many times, but I don’t know if they changed vendors or cooks but the food wasn’t good at all! My daughter wings were extremely over cooked I mean meat was dry. The shrimp and lobster linguine was horrible the sauce was not the same shrimp and lobster both over cooked. Spinach dip was horrible I don’t know if they changed the cheese but it was disgusting. My sons ordered burgers and after waiting 45 minutes we were told they were out of burgers. So they had to order something else. Are server was nice but she to could have been better never got water after drinks and never offered us anything else to drink once are drinks was gone. The overall service was horrible so we won’t be going back

(5-31-21)

40 minute delay for order to be served - service and quality of meal - failed to meet expectations.

Someone needs to teach servers/waitstaff that starters are served at the beginning prior to the entree/main course being served, if uncertain then ask the patron. An appetiser is not an accoutrement to the main course.

This was a disastrous meal and it did not improve. We arrived early and finally we were seated. Twenty minutes before our drink order was taken; then most everything we ordered was unavailable; forty minutes before our meal was served (without cutlery);

Ten minutes before cutlery was provided, only to be offered disposables, an additional ten minutes for stainless steel utensils. Our meals was no longer warm, but cold, yum, cold steak and potatoes.

Nothing was warm.

Have you ever eaten a steak without a fork? Try stabbing it with a knife whilst waiting patiently for mediocre service. How about linguini and prawns, you grab the prawns with your fingers and hope for the best‼️

Will not return. Awful service.

Quite frankly, my experience was terrible. The service was lacking and unprofessional, the tables were dirty, the bathroom was disgusting and the quality of the food and drinks was just completely different from what I remember about this Bahama Breeze location.

Nice, lively place for a casual gathering. The Caribbean dishes have always been good. Due to covid restrictions our party had to sit at different tables but close in proximity and the mgr was very accommodating. I have frequented Bahama Breeze many times and will definitely continue.

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.
