This is the best Bahama Breeze I have been to. There is another in Waterford Lakes but they just do not cook the same as this one. The ambiance is lovely, good music and great food.

When I check in with the hostess she confirm my reservation and then we sat there for 30 minutes and when I asked she then informed me that she did not have a reservation. I don't know why she didn't say anything since I was sitting about 5 feet from her making eye contact the entire time. Then they tried to sit us a party of 5 at a booth with a chair coming off the end. after all that and finally getting moved to a bigger table about an hour after our reservation was for I had to send back my medium well steak as it was bloody inside. Their solution was to comp us three cups of coffee.

Sean was our waiter and was very slow. Drinks....were slow....he would disappear for a bit and not check on us till I complained. We normally order drinks and appetizers. Then have the server back and order dinner. He said the kitchen was really backed up so it would be best to order dinner as well. So we did. Appetizer took a long time for guacamole and chips and spinach dip. We were about 5 chips in and our full meal was on the table. One which was salmon. Spoke to the male manager who seemed the least bit interested and he asked if we wanted him to hold the dishes in the back!!! Ummmmm no. So I told him to take the warm spinach dip away. Did the waiter ever come to ask about it or apologize.....nope! This location has really gone down hill. Manager looks sloppy, one employee was carrying a full trash bag around the restaurant while food was being served. Just a hot mess! Drinks sitting at the bar too long. Will take a lot to get me to return. Darden restaurants have really lost all appeal to us. Seems like they really don’t care about their brand.

Its a solid restaurant that is close to home. The paella, goat curry, and ribs are among my favorites. With it begins such a large restaurant, it has plenty of space for seating large groups but it is very loud. Our latest visit the entrees were good but the on the rocks cocktails were terribly weak and watered down unlike the frozen cocktails. We typically aren't much into chain restaurants but Darden has done a good job with Bahama Breeze with the food and a better job in their trained wait staff.

We had a great time. Towards the end the sun was shining directly in our eyes. They couldn’t correct it because there were no shades just on those windows. However the manager gave us coupons for a free appetizer. At least, they tried.

Considering it was a Saturday evening the restaurant was unusually empty, was very surprised to be able to reserve a table for 3 less than two hours ahead of reservation time. Service & food were good, only complaint is the over billing on 9oz glass of wine.......cost should reflect no more than 1.5 times cost of 6oz glass! $14.99 for a 9oz glass of wine that costs less than $10 for a 750ml bottle in the grocery store is just a little much!

Spontaneously decided to take my girlfriend there I would recommend sitting by the fire pit if it’s a late dinner or more of a night setting especially if you’re on a date or just having family time service is great.

Arrived several hours early on New Year’s eve and there were not many customers in the restaurant. It was nearly an hour and 15 minutes before our food was served and it had clearly been left under a heat lamp for an extended period of time. It was absolutely terrible. Fish was mush, shrimp like bullets. I ordered a drink that was subpar and a family member ordered a margarita that she said was horrible and had to send it back to be remade. Waitress was kind and friendly but the food was extremely disappointing and the wait was inexcusable. I won’t be going back for quite some time.

Our server was attentive and accommodating. The food was delivered without an inordinate wait. Being quite familiar with Bahama Breeze, we chose it as the place for our party of eight for my niece’s to celebrate my niece’z post college graduation celebration. The food wasn't prepared as expertly as we were accustomed to from visits to other locations.

We Made a reservation for 7:15 pm. They told me they couldn’t find the reservation on their system even after I showed them the confirmation! I was with my 2 babies and family I had to wait more than an hour to be seated. Very rude , manager was not helpful at all and didn’t care. Didn’t even apologize! I have been many times there and always loved it , but with this I’m
Never going again . Worst service and the girls at front were with attitude the whole time. I hated it . Customers are always right even when they have proof! And you guys need to learn to respect and do things right !
