Took my best friend for her 40th birthday. It was the only place she likes to eat and only likes the coconut shrimp. When we go to order we are told they ran out. I’m not sure how you run out of your most popular items but we were so disappointed cause we looked forward to that all week!
First night out after restaurants opened up. Service was great - Food was excellent. Our go to place for a relaxing meal.
Went out for Mother’s Day...such a treat! We had the sweetest waiter too...shout out to Matthew at the Gainesville, FL location!
Our server Andrea was a great waitress who waited on us with friendliness throughout the meal. She did have a lot of tables to wait on. The chicken and fruit salad was good. The cup of seafood chowder was very good with a great spice to go with it. Overall a good experience.
Nice venue. The background music was loud. The quality of food was average.
Nice open patio and inviting atmosphere. Food was good as usual. Nice relaxing spot for after work.
They have added a couple of vegetarian options that are excellent.
Good food and decent - although very sweet - cocktails
Service & food was very good. Can’t go wrong with the Coconut Shrimp - tasty & good quantity - usually enough for next day. The bar cocktails were a bit watered down & it’s obvious this is where they make their money. That is ok - just give me a decent pour & strength if I’m paying for it.
While I love the food I always feel like the kitchen is so slow. There weren’t a lot of folks in the restaurant, our wait staff was super attentive, just a slow kitchen. We would eat here more if it was a bit faster but kids it is hard to do a long meal.
Great food, timely friendly service
Nice afternoon out! Food was good but lunch prices were 9.00 and up.
Food was great and service was good as well.
I will start by saying I generally refuse to eat at chain restaurants. That being said I have eaten twice in the last month at Bahama Breeze. The food is solid and fresh. Good recreation of Caribbean fare. The service is good. There were some issues, not with the waitress, but the support staff. Our waitress dealt with it and was friendly and cheerful. The place is huge and the fact that can get the food out hot and in a reasonable time is impressive. If it s a choice between this and Cheese Cake take Bahama Breeze in a heart beat .
Our server Allison was very attentive. Great dinner there with my daughter.
Friendly staff, clean and good food and great service!
Service was excellent and food was good!
We have been to this location many times & we all agreed this was probably the best experience we have had. The food was much improved- really liked the Coconut Shrimp dinner with yellow rice & broccoli as well as the various shrimp appetizers. The drinks - margaritas - are still watered down & have way too much ice though. Our server was fantastic this time.
Great service and menu
I was very disappointed this evening. My specified vegetarian rice bowl came with chicken. By the time it was served, the other guests were already served their meal and nearly finished. I left most of my meal behind!
Absolutely amazing! Gema was awesome and very attentive. I love going to eat here! I had dessert for the first time and chose the chocolate island dessert. Words can not describe that experience! I will definitely go back and so wish one was in Tallahassee!
Staff was extremely helpful, friendly and Melissa went beyond waitressing, made sure our drinks were what we liked,food was great so was the price.
The food was very good and I enjoyed the music. The service was good also.
We were immediately greeted and seated but after waiting over 7 minutes we flagged down a manager to say no server had come by. About 3 minutes later our server came over and apologized. He was great...attentive and knowledgeable. Only complaint was the salmon had to be sent back since it was undercooked on middle.
Our go-to restaurant for a relaxed atmosphere, live music, and great food and drinks!
Love Bahama Breeze! Wide variety to chose from and never made a bad choice
Alison is by far the most amazing server I have ever had! I come to this restaurant all the time and always request her. She always makes sure my food is correct and is seems to never have a bad day :)
Clean and well maintained seats and tables. The menu offered a wide selection. Reasonable wait for food to be brought out. Even got there earlier then my reservation and they were able to seat me and my friends early.
Loved the live music outside on the porch. Excellent food and loved new sauces.
This spot has a nice coastal vibe, had live music and is a fun night out. I had the Seafood Paella, it was as pretty good, but I sometimes have a hard time finding enough appealing options on their menu. I think some menu expansion could be helpful at BB and more wine options.
Very nice atmosphere! Love the decor! Food was great and service was wonderful. Guitar player/singer was awesome!
Excellent variety of meals to choose from. Fast service. Very clean.
Great food and service
The waiter was excellent and she made the day. The sandwich was very poor, it lacked flavor and was very skimpy on the meat. I will not go in the evening because the noise level is way to much so I tried the lunch and the noise level is still to much.
My waitress Allison was one of the best waitresses I have ever had, and I was a restaurant manager for many years. This girl did a fabulous job and deserves credit for her hard work.
It was great. Great food good atmosphere
An okay restaurant for casual dress, drinks and slow wait staff, and average food preparation.
Lovely decor . Good food . Very sweet waitress!
Server Jack was awful. Forgot to put in one of the parties order. Everybody was done eating when her food finally arrived. Asked for ketchup twice. Server forgot, so random other server got us ketchup, but it had been 15 minutes, so food was cold. Girl who delivered late food didn’t know what was on plate. Said, “I’m new and I don’t know what this is. Who ordered it?” I’m like, the only person who has no plate in front of them due to server forgetting to put her order in. Of course, I didn’t say that out loud. Bahama mama was in cracked glass. I highly advise not going here.
