    There were 6 of us for dinner. At first everything seemed fine however once everyone’s food was brought out, there was one dish missing. At first we thought they were coming right back; however after a full 5 min. The manager finally came over to explain that the dish I ordered could not be made due to an allergen, when I ordered I was very specific and the waitress assured me it would not be a problem. Clearly she never bothered to check. Instead of coming back to the table to alert me she never came back. Now everyone at the table was finished eating and I never had a meal. The manager was apologetic however the waitress proceeded to avoid our table. She never even came to apologize. It was an extremely poor and disappointing experience. I truly hope Bahama Breeze vets there employees better. Service like that will definitely negatively impact my return service.

    Waited 10 minutes for someone to come by our table. Ordered drinks, appetizer and entrees all at once. Drinks took a while to arrive. App was slow and entrees even slower. We’ve been to this Bahama Breeze often but this time it was so disappointing. Only saw our waitress about 3 times. Others brought out our food and the manager set us up with our bill to pay when the waitress was a no show.

    For a chain restaurant, the food and drinks are actually quite good. cocktails and portions are a generous size. The server we had was great. She was very polite, efficient and ready to meet our needs. For a good informal meal, this restaurant is a great place to go.

    Service was terrible. It took an hour to get napkins and silverware and initially only a fork was brought. We had to make a scene for napkins. Appetizers were served with no silverware or napkins.

    Service was good. Everyone said the food was ok. I had a cuban sandwich . The bread was nearly impossible to chew. Some parts dry , some hard to chew , I left half if it there. Not particularly crazy about the rice and beans either. The ice cream a actually had ice at the bottom. Just not an enjoyable meal for me.

    Keeping in mind Covid still cast a shadow over the overall experience, it was still a great dine out experience for my wife and I. If you are going during a peak time, make a reservation. We did, but there still was about 15 minutes before we were seated. The wait time for walking in, was 1 hour. Expect a smaller menu choice now, but there’s still lots of great food. Staff was as good as they could be, wasn’t neglected. Serve times were very fast. This is still one of our favorite places to go. Oh, and prices are comparable for food items, not super expensive, but expect to spend, if you are going to order mixed drinks.

    The waitstaff and management were decent enough and understanding about our not appreciating undercooked chicken and tasteless food. The silverware was dirty and the place was empty except for a couple booths and folks drinking at outdoor tables. I think the kitchen has no experience without customers but if it was busy they couldn't possibly keep up. It should probably be closed.

    Our favorite restaurant for a change of pace food. First time back since Covid. My favorite dish, Buttermilk chicken was overcooked and less sauce, less everything. My husband and adult daughter enjoyed their meals, as did I to a lesser degree than formerly. We all enjoyed tropical drinks, and all in all enjoyed our visit. Very good service and friendly staff all around.

    The seafood chowder wasn’t as good as it usually is. We had order 2 bowls of it but didn’t eat it. It Kind of tasted like soap and not much seafood. I didn’t want to make a big deal about it bc we were just happy to eat out and the service was really good.

    Let me start by saying the server Nick was very nice . However we are Not thrilled when you get charged 15.00 a glass for Kendall Jackson Chardonnay and it’s the only option for Chardonnay. Why isn’t there a house wine? Also the chicken sandwich was totally burned and dried out and seemed like it was deep fried a few times ..the fish tacos were better. Very disappointed .

    I know service is tuff and they maybe short people but our server did not take one persons at our table food and drink order. The delivered our appetizer and a few minutes later our dinner while we were eating our appetizers. They did comp out appetizers but when you deliver 4 out of 6 dinners and 20 minutes later the other two. He did his best and we did tip well.

    If you like Caribbean flair and food, this is the place. Everything on the menu is very well thought out, and very tasty. Great drinks and cocktails too, but be prepared to pay for their greatness. The servers are pretty attentive, and have good attitude. Wait time from the kitchen is very good, you’re not going to sit forever. The coconut shrimp, is worth trying. My wife and I, consider this place one of our favorite spots.

    I love this restaurant, especially eating outside, but this visit they just weren't ready for the crowd they had this night. We were seated and greeted by our waitress and placed drink orders. Next we ordered an appetizer and it came but with no plates or silverware. When we requested them we were told they were out at the moment because they had a rush. They really shouldn't seat you if things like utensils aren't available. That being said this is an unusual occurrence and I will be back. Our waitress and the trainee she was working with were both attentive and sweet.

    Was visiting my niece in NJ and was looking for a place with a diverse menu for 6.The menu is tropical based. I ordered for all to try conch fritters with a honey mustard dipping sauce very good. There of us ordered blackened Mahi Mahi tacos they were good as well.Two people ordered Seafood Paella . They said it was good would have liked more seafood and less rice. The other person ordered black bean soup and blackbean and guacamole tacos, she said they were good . For dessert two of us have birthday this wk so we had Key Lime Pie. It was ok. It was made,with meringue.
