We love Bahama Breeze!!! None in Maryland so we have to drive 78 miles or more to visit in VA or PA. It is first restaurant destination I look for when on any travel outside of Maryland!!!

We were surprisingly met with the best waitress ever! Becca was knowledgeable of the menu, had a great personality, and will be one of the reasons we come back soon! Also, social distancing and safety measures were in tact and enforced.

The front door staff needs to do better with their service, first impressions are everything. I walked into the establishment with an existing reservation for the same evening only 1.5 hours later. There were folks waiting at the front and I expected to wait as well. I was told the wait would be 20-30 mins and I would receive a call. An hour passed and I went back to the front and the gentleman informed me that I would have to wait until my reservation time. I explained that people who walked in after me were now sitting down enjoying their meals and he explained that I had to wait. I spoke with the first host who rectified the situation only after I impressed the principal of the matter.

What an experience. The GM was literally the epitome of leadership and hard work. I watched him run from the front of the house to the back, seat guest, bust tables and still managed to stop by our table to see how the meal was. Please give that man a raise. Our waitress was awesome as well.

The food was pretty good, and made the total experience pretty good, Not as awesome as I had anticipated. I’ll be back again, probably.

Upon our arrival we had 2 reservations. They gave us a table outside, when that is not we selected.

The greeter was unprofessional and very uncommunicative. She spoke to us as if we knew what was suppose to happen or we worked there.

The manager was inattentive and disrespectful. Discussing our situation with a smirk on his face.

However, the waiter was very patient and understanding. The beverages were good. We left so, we didn’t have any food.

Thanks for ruining my birthday dinner!

So I made a 7:30 reservation.ay 7:40 we still had not been seated. I was told the table had paid but had not gotten up. And that they could not make them leave. So around 7:55 we were seated outside which was okay. We sat for about 30 minutes without service. I asked a server if we are to order over the gadget on the table or do we have a sever. She informed me that we could but we should have someone assigned to the table snd that she would find out who. About an additional 10 minutes went by the server showed up. He took our drink order and my two children food order in hopes that there food would arrive sooner that did not happen tur server never asked or brought water to our table. After some of the party received drink order. I asked the server if we can have water for thr table. The water came out with our food. I've gone to this establishment not only in VA but also NJ and Florida this is the first time that I've experienced service like this. We also was told that we needed to stand outside due to COVID protocols. Which I get. It was 54 degrees outside which was to cold for my 2 and 4 year old children to stand and the car was part yo far due to the mall customers. So with this said my experience was not the best but I still managed to tip 18% even though the service nor the experience was not what I wad used to.

The food was great. Service was ok but the time from getting sat until the time we were greeted was entirely too long. We feel like the waiting staff could’ve been more attentive.

We had a reservation and were greeted upon entering the restaurant. Seated w/minimal wait time. Staff was attentive and practiced per covid. Ordered 2 appetizers and 2 sandwiches. Appetizers came out immediately and were OK. Sandwiches were not good and only ate 1/2. Will not be back.

Well for starters we came at 9:00 pm and we did not have alcohol drinks. When our appetizers came out they were cold. My partner just wanted water, he had later asked for a refill and the table kept asking and receiving alcohol drinks and after 15 minutes we decided not to eat dinner there, same waitress running back and forth to the table next to us but we can’t get a water ?? We just ate the appetizers and went somewhere else to get dinner and drinks. Terrible all around and when leaving two employees just standing near the door talking to each other and not even a good night. I would expect this from a fast food!

The service was excellent but the food was not extraordinary by any means--it was just fair. I order the fish tacos and found it to be bland. The spinach dip was average and my chips were stale. I ordered the ultimate pina colada for my beverage, it was delicious but it lacked rum. The price was as expected.

The food was excellent as usual and even though it was cold and raining outside the patio was heated and comfy. Bahama Breeze is one of the few places that have outside dining, which I prefer in these Covid times.

We had a 7:15 reservation and we arrived at 7:00 PM to check in. We were not seated until 7:35 PM. It's not the late seating that's the issue. The issue is I had to constantly engage them to check on our reservation status and each time, it seemed that we had to start from scratch on my information and where we stood in the queue. I value service and consideration more than anything else, and it was lacking.

I've eaten there before and did not experience this same poor service.

We hadn’t been to the restaurant in a long time and the recent reviews almost deterred us. Our table was ready on time as reserved in the outdoor patio. The tables were social distanced. Our server, Danny, was accommodating and our beverage and food orders were taken and delivered promptly. Everyone enjoyed their meals and they were prepared well. Overall we had a great experience and will continue to dine there.

Not a variety of HH appetizers. Too many shrimp plates dishes. Smaller portions, higher prices!! Such as the crab and it needed more latino flavor!! Wasted money, not good at all! I do not want to return to that Bahama Breeze!!

We had a reservation that had been created, but were told when we got there that we would have to wait 30 minutes because there was no space in outside seating. They instead wanted us to sit inside, despite the fact that there were tables available outside. They cited some crazy company policy about not being to drag an extra chair to a table. In addition, we were told that the table that was open was being held for a 4:45 reservation. Excuse me? Our reservation is for 4:30 and we are ON TIME. This is the first issue I had ever had with reservations on Open Table. Maybe you all need to streamline your seating process so that you have set tables for reservations and set tables for walk ins. What is the point of a reservation? If Cheesecake Factory across the street had immediate availability, we would have left. The issue was eventually was resolved almost 20 min later after I had to speak with a manager and request that we be seated at the open table , along with an extra chair that had to be placed. Goodness, was it that hard? My HH group has decided we will never dine again at this spot. This is the SECOND issue we have had with seating.

This was our first time out in public since the pandemic for a family dinner with our kids & we didn’t know what to expect. The wait wasn’t long at all. The food was amazing. Our waitress was amazing, the social distancing was amazing. The staff was wearing their mask. It was perfect. No complaints what so ever. I would definitely go again.
