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.

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.

Sat on patio so quiet. This was at lunch. Waitress kept recommending dinner entrees leaving impression she was trying to increase our tab.

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.

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!

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.

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

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!

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.

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.
