My husband and I had a wonderful Valentine's Dinner at Bahama Breeze. The island drinks were delicious and the food was exceptional, as always. The music playing in the background was delightful. I love the the tropical decor. Our server was very attentive and pleasant. We enjoy visiting Bahama Breeze any time of the year. I would, and have, recommended this restaurant to others.

Overall, we had a good experience at Bahama Breeze - Toms River. The food was very good, the ambience was pleasant, and the noise level was fine.

My objection/complaint goes to the essence of Open Table: I used the system to make a reservation for 6:45 PM on Saturday night. Our group of 3 (including my 85 year old mother) arrived at 6:40 PM. The restaurant was crowded - which I expected. There was no table ready for us, and I was told that they would give us one when one opened up. I explained that I had made a reservation, and this SHOULD mean that a table is "reserved" for us. The hostess merely shrugged - this is clearly not their definition of a reservation. If this doesn't bother you, fine. But don't expect a reservation to mean that a table is ready for you when you arrive.

Always good eats at Bahama Breeze. They don't have White Zin or Rose anymore, but the Sangria is delightful. Hubby's favorite is the fish tacos. I love the steak Oscar just to name one. Service is always good. It gets pretty busy on the weekends. Best to make reservations which you can also do on Open Table. Enjoy!

Excellent service and food quality. Can only compare to the princeton area (market fair) Bahama Breeze which has mediocre service and over cooked food the times I have been there. Toms River Bahama Breeze was surprisingly fun with smiling, upbeat and hard working service

Wanted to eat outside because it was a beautiful night but band was outrageously loud!! Everyone moved inside. You could not talk or hear a word they were so loud. Truly a shame. Band ruined everything for us and others.
