Went celebrate a birthday...kitchen was backed up and food took forever to arrive. Poor waiter was so in the weeds . Food was fair but tasty .
The firecracker shrimp was pretty tasty.
Food was tasty. Service was attentive overall. We did have to wait on a table to be cleaned. We'll definitely return.
It was nice. Food was ok, service was ok, had that “no problem” island feeling. Very casual. Price was ok but I expected more.
Great late night Happy Hour!!!
Great food served on a very nice patio with tables safely spaced. Will definitely be back soon.
When we arrived no one was at the hostess stand, a waitress walked up to front door area so I said hello, she made no comment back and continued doing what she was doing. A few moments later the hostess greated us and sat us in the area for waitress who did not acknowledge us a few moments earlier. Throughout the meal the waitress made no effort to see if we needed refills on our water, never returned to take a drink order and never asked if we wanted anything else or dessert. On top of this my appetizer arrived after my dinner did and when I requested more water she didn't ask anyone else in my party of they needed anything else.
While the food was good, this waitress made a nice evening a bit miserable and we left earlier than we had anticipated to since it was clear she didn't care to properly wait on our table.
Very nice staff - comfortable themed decor and fun selection of casual food and drinks
When we first arrived we entered the restaurant and were totally ignored. Many of the staff running around saw us and never acknowledged that were waiting. It wasn't until someone came in from outside that we were sat.
The food was very good once they corrected the errors. The service was the worst I have ever experienced. We went huge amount of time with no attention or drink refills. The appetizer came out cold, one of our entrees came with incorrect sides and the server was never around to ask for help. I had to get up each time to find someone to help refill drinks or correct the dinner.
Just from the beginning to the end it was not a pleasant experience and left a bad taste about the restaurant. It's sad because I have been to Bahama Breeze in other locations and never had an experience like this.
Scrumptious food. Light business.
Place needs a good cleaning we sat outside flooring needs a pressure wash no server for 15 minutes have been their in the past and was good probably time for a new manager
Paella was way too salty to be edible. Good service, nice staff. Nice ambience. Pity about the food because that’s what really counts
Great drinks, not so tasty food.
Our waitress Tia was excellent
The best food & the best service. I highly recommend for all cultures of all ages.
Our waiter was useless. He brought us our food and we never seen him again. I literately had to look for him and ask another waiter for him. He failed to refill glasses or clear our table when we completed until we asked for it. However, he very quick to provide our check and uncomfortably waited over me to include a tip on the payment device. He was not personable or was not a good representation of Bahama Breeze.
We visited the Sawgrass location recently, we were very delighted and will likely return to that location.
However, we will not return to Federal Hwy because of the lack of service provided.
First time visiting. Really nice atmosphere. Menu variety was decent. Only had two issues and when you are hungry these two issues are a big deal....
The server... You must know your menu and food! The menu clearly said the sauce was hot she said no it's sweet, my mom ordered it and of course the sauce was hot. The server said oh it wasn't to me. Either way sweet vs spicy are completely different
The cook... I ordered a steak for my daughter medium well, that way it's not overcooked/burnt. Let's just say it was just warm. The entire was red, as soon as I cut it it was blood... How could the cook miss it, so I sent it back the cook only recooks the cut piece so I cut the steak from a different angle and guess what that side had blood draining from it as well.... So who checks the checker. The restaurant is not packed. We are patiently waiting. I send the food back for you to correct the issue and you still mess it up. That is not OK.
Would I recommend- yes for the drinks they did remember to put ice in the drinks! Food wise they need some work. It wasn't late and super early it was a 7p reservation!
About Happy Hour... 4 to 6 pm! Really. Most places it's at least until 7pm. Not the best place for after work. The food is good, though.
The food was great, as was the service, but the patio practically sits on US 1 / Federal Hwy.
not a great experience. service was not great food was so so
The food took forever to come out. I only ordered jerk shrimp appetizer. My friend ordered the salmon dinner. After waiting about 45 minutes we asked where our order was. Her food came out before mine. We were told that her salmon had been burned and they had to make a new one. My shrimp still had not come out. When it did, it was cold. The waitress Pauline or Paulette was awesome. She took my shrimp back. Five minutes later the manager brought out another shrimp order. He thought this was my first order I told him they had brought it out, but took it back because it was cold. He took that order back. Another five minutes another shrimp order came out. It was only Luke warm, and I didn’t want to send it back again. I ended up getting a to go box and took it home. I did eat some of the bread. My friends salmon and mashed sweet potatoes were delish.
On vacation in FL looking for cool atmosphere and good food. Really enjoy the food and service was good as well
We enjoyed the evening with our family and friends. We had a nice evening. Thanks.
Service was horrible! 3 beers took 25 minutes to come out. We received our appetizers and didn’t have any utensils or plates. Couldn’t find our server or any server to bring utensils or plates, apps sat and got cold. Seems like they can’t handle being busy. Servers were super slow. Manager just stood in the back watching. Staff seemed overwhelmed. Will definitely not go back.
We enjoy coming here for the variety of Caribbean food. Tastes great.
Thanks for a nice evening. We enjoyed the great tasting food and the service.
Belated Valentines Day dinner with my wife.
Atmosphere was lively. Music in the background. Lots going around. Foods and drinks were good.
It was just ok
We made a reservation. Got there 7 minutes late due to traffic and reservation was cancelled even though host told us cancellations were normally cancelled after 10 minutes
Very noisy and food lukewarm
Restaurant was overly air-conditioned.
Tia T. was an excellent server. She was very attentive, courteous and conscientious. Tia anticipated what you needed even before you knew it. Her stellar customer service attitude along with delicious food made for an outstanding dining experience. Will definitely ask for Tia again during our next visit! The manager was great too.
Our server Sharon was very good. Despite a very busy bar she got our drink order in and brought our margarita and mojito after a short wait. I had the paella and my husband had the Cuban sandwich and both we’re delicious. We sat outside on a beautiful evening and there was a DJ playing music. Nice atmosphere for a Saturday evening. The only downside of this restaurant is the hostess stand. This is my third visit to this restaurant and each time my reservation was not recognized as requested. The first visit there were 3 of us and they tried to seat us at a bar table for 2. The second visit we requested an outside table at the time the reservation was made and they tried to sit us inside at a bar table. This time we requested an outside table when we made the reservation and when we checked bin they told us none were available and we had to sit inside. On all 3?visits I asked for a manager and we were seated outside. They need more competent hostess staff.
This is a fun quirky chain restaurant with a Caribbean flair. Just remember that most food here is sort of spicy. But that is what this flavor is known for. Our waitress was excellent and worked to tweak our meals to just our liking. I really liked that I could order a lighter (smaller portion). Overall a good value.
The food was just okay, over priced, and the service was slow considering there were several open tables. I have been to many other locations and they were all much better.
Mediocre service. No water, no bread, forgot appetizer, no "Thank you and good night" before we left. Although we gave 20% tip, Paul W. needs some training update.....
Newly opened restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale. Service was awful. Server couldn’t answer any questions we had. She had to ask someone else. After we ordered an appetizer and drinks we decided to eat at another restaurant. Asked her to check on my rewards points and had no clue and said she couldn’t do it. Said I would need to go online and check them
Manager came over and said he would need to enter a code on my phone. That’s not how it’s done in Ft. Myers. Smooth and easy and servers much more professional. Was visiting and know never to go back to Bahama Breeze in Ft. Lauderdale.
we had to wait over 30 minutes past our reservation time. Food was average at best - it's a chain restaurant...there are plenty of other places in the area if you want seafood.
