Bahama Breeze - Gainesville
Book your next event with us
We had a great time. My husband and I stopped in for the first time on one of date nights and couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
We will definitely be back! Great food and drink. Awesome service staff!
Disappointing. The Bahama Breeze in Orlando and the one in Schaumburg (Chicago Suburb) are great. Little ambiance here. My piece of salmon was smaller than ever in the past and was smaller than my husband’s. The potatoes tasted s little odd. When I asked for butter for the potatoes (because there was none), I was brought melted butter, which I thought was odd.
The decor was nice for being just a big box. Bad design. Reminded me of a big, square warehouse.
Fun upbeat place with great food and service!
Entire staff was warm and welcoming!!
Sat on patio so quiet. This was at lunch. Waitress kept recommending dinner entrees leaving impression she was trying to increase our tab.
Enjoyed this visit to BB but what stood out was our server. Alison was exceptional. She was extremely attentive & personable. Will definitely ask for her when we visit again.
The food took over an hour, but our server was wonderful and the food was great once we got it :)
Always a favorite place for dinner. Was happy to get last minute reservation for Valentine's day. Great food, ample portions and ambiance.
Great food wonderful waitress.
It was an overall very good experience, the food was nice and servers were friendly. We had a good time!
Service was slow but it was a Friday evening and it was busy. We ordered two glasses of wine and an appetizer to start. Appetizer came quickly but a long wait after that for wine. Even after reminding waitress who said she’d get it right away it took a long time.
Fun spot with great food and drinks.
Pleasant,as it was a holidy,it was not very crowsed...noise level was manageable. Open table adviaed that no pointa were earned,but did not explain why. I canont chase these things.
Drink was good. Food menu has gone downhill recently.
Great! Loved the atmosphere
Delicious meal with excellent service! Will definitely come back again.
We attended for my daughters 21st birthday. She loved her "fancy grown up drink".
Great service and food. Nice fire pit. Good value and overall excellent experience.
Food ok, not memorable. Might have been better if my order wasn't screwed up. Drinks good and reasonbly priced.
Crab stack appetizer is delicious. We sat outside which is very pleasant. Inside is very cold.
Loved the grilled chicken and tropical fruit salad. Thorn was a great server, attentive but not obtrusive.
From the establishment, food, customer service and management team; everything was outstanding!!!
First time at this BB & it was quite fun! The 6 of us sat at a high top outside in patio area. It was very hot & could have used more fans but we made due with very strong margaritas. Everyone liked their food & we will def return next time in town for a game. Go Gators!
Service needed some attention. Order not correct on two orders. No refills offered food was good atmosphere good staff is friendly
Dropping my daughter back to University
Good food, but if you’re going on a Friday evening the noise level is HIGH and you might have trouble chatting.:(
The drinks and desserts are really good here :) and there are lots of good looking choices on the menu. I have been twice and gotten two different meals each time, and both times the food has just tasted kind of bland. I recommend the bar and desserts though. Those are delicious. We also had great servers both times we went.
food was VERY good
The noise level was really loud. The food was great, but you couldn't hear yourself think with the loud noise of everyone talking and the music. It
We were celebrating two family members birthday and Bahama breeze made it very special for those birthdays!
The current lunch promos are worth stopping by. I'm sure they're trying to counter the negative business trends in this type of restaurant, why not take advantage of some attractive deals
Fun atmosphere!!! Wonderful live band!!! Tasty food & drinks...
Nicest Bahama Beeze we have been to. My problem is when you sit down and order 2 glasses of house wine how long should you have to wait? Is 20+ minutes ok in your mind? They did make it up by coming our apps, but still dehydration was starting to show it's ugly face. The waitress was fine it was just the bar was a disaster! It was late, we did get our drinks and food, so all is good in the end!
Too loud for us and the quality and taste of menu items is inconsistent.
Worst service ever. Took an hour to get one appetizer, after first hour second appetizer came. Drinks were so slow. Manager ended up comping the entire meal, $101 value. We offered to pay for drinks and appetizer. Honestly, we most likely won’t be back. Had poor service in Orlando as well. Might be a chain problem.
Bahama Breeze is a staple for casual dining for us. Their new seasonal menu was delicious
Wonderful food. Wait staff very attentive. Great place!
We have eaten at this location two times previously. The atmosphere is upbeat and fun but they were not crowded and our food was delivered to us in an interesting way. First we ordered drinks and an appetizer, then we ordered our entree. We did not receive our drinks or appetizer and another server who was not our server came out and abruptly brought our entrees. And I told her we didn’t even have our beverages or appetizer completely brought out. yet.
So she rumbled, so you do t want these now?? I replied, Well no not yet....and told her why would I want my entree with out even receiving my drinks and appetizer. She was short and walked away. Our server came back a while later with the drinks etc. The entrees came out.
They just need to time their orders and bring out the food in order. Drinks...appetizers if any and then entree. The prices are fine but this is not fast food. Could have been nicer. Our original server, well he was a nice guy. Just needed to watch a little more.
