We wanted a fun place to eat outdoors to celebrate our new UF graduate. Bahama Breeze was PERFECT. My reservation was honored, as was my request for outdoor seating, as soon as we arrived. Kudos!
It was a really good meal. The decor was perfect, music spot on, and the flavors of food were amazing. I wasn’t expecting much and was very pleasantly surprised.
Wonderful service and great food! The atmosphere is really nice.
Service was super slow even though they were not busy. Definitely not the service they usually give
We celebrated the new year with a delicious dinner at Bahama Breeze. Our server was friendly and attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. The food was quite tasty. We look forward to once again having dinner at Bahama Breeze.
We had a great experience here and the service was excellent- The place was clean and Covid aware - much appreciated and keep up the good job.
Stopped in for lunch. Great service and food. Will definitely dine there again.
They have a great outdoor environment and we enjoyed a raining end of with a glimpse of a sunset...Great food, service, and environment. Highly recommend.
Great service and good food provided in a COVID safe environment.
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.
