Our waitress was possibly new and over worked. Not enough staff. Food was very good.

DO NOT go to this one - go to the one on International Drive. This one is terrible. The server was incompetent. She must not have even put our food in right away, because it was over 45 minutes (almost an hour!) from the time we ordered until our food came out. We never got refills. I had to find a water pitcher myself twice. The manager was okay but didn't even make anything right for us. Won't be returning to this one either. Plus, the ambiance and layout of the other one in Orlando by Universal is infinitely better.

Big selection to choose from. Caught the "Happy Hour" and appetizers we tried were good, even better they were 1/2 price. A pleasant surprise. Didn't have any cocktails, but the list of drinks went on for pages, so you have a good selection. You should easily find a meal and drink and not break the bank. Very good for a casual dinner.

Server excessively checked at our table throughout our meal and removed plates/gave desert recommendations before we had finished eating entrees

The waiter was very nice. But, was taking a long time to come back and take our order. The food also took a long time to cook. We found this to be odd since the place was not very busy. This was my second time coming to this location, and the first time was better than this. We also have been to the other location on I drive, and their service, food, ambiance and everything is always 5 stars.

Checked in and waited over 30 minutes for a server to assist us. The restaurant was slow at the time, not busy and our server advised us that she was waiting tables clear on the other side of the restaurant. Then it took a bit for the food to come, we had one refill the entire time. The jerk wings that we ordered were not hot, my love waited for 30 minutes for extra sauce for the wings, My jerk chicken pasta was cold and was ordered with extra sauce on the side, but pasta came out with no sauce on it at all. Took forever for almost assistance on everything. Honestly, not the normal experience at this location, as I normally go during their busier times. We were very disappointed with the food and services

Bahama Breeze has been a favorite restaurant since the first one opened on I-Drive. Second visit to this location. The 1st time was disappointing. The smallest portion of Paella I've ever seen. The 2nd time was right. This is now our preferred location.

Nothing special, large cavernous dining room reminds me of all you can eat joint.

Little privacy. Too bright not st all tropical except for the paint colors,

Go back to the drawing board you can do better

Taco salad description touted as having pulled chicken, black beans, corn, cheese, corn tortilla strips, avocado. The chicken was a clump of chicken, there were four 1/2” pieces of avocado, I had to hunt and peck for black beans and corn - couldn’t have been more than a tablespoon, same for the tortilla strips. I remember seeing one strand of cheese. It’s basically a plate of greens. Too bad because if they made it as advertised it would have been good. Chicken had great flavor.
Wine list is terrible. I asked to try a sip of one before ordering and waitress said no. Then she brought the large glass which I did not order. I hate 6 oz and 9 oz options. Just pour a decent glass of wine fora fair price. The wine was awful by the way. Had to ask for silverware. Had to ask for water twice.
This was second attempt at Bahama Breeze. Never going back.

The smell of old dirty mop hits you in the face a soon as you walk in the door. Very unappetizing. The tile floor was so slippery we could have skated to our table. Perhaps mopped with grease. The server appeared to be new but was very sweet and tried very hard. So loud that even at a table for two we couldn’t talk and it’s not like the restaurant was overly crowded. We did enjoy the food and will go back to bahama breeze but never to this location

We are regular at Bahama Breeze and the food is usually delicious. This was our 1st time at this location. They were out of ribs for the day.

The service was great. The food was not good. It was edible and we didn’t complain.

Sirloin steak was flavorless, some of the seafood in the paella was over cooked and churrasco steak was over cooked and tough.

Hopefully this new location will improve.

Nice hibiscus martini, spinach deep, quesadilla.
We have ordered about 8 appetizers to share for 3 ppl.
New dishes CrabStack and Goat Cheese Dip were AWFUL. We just tried but did not eat it nor finish it. The server even didn’t offer to substitute it to another dish or to refund the items we didn’t eat

No wait, very nice decor, staff, and ambiance. Food was prepared in a timely manner. The drinks were great and the music was more authentic Caribbean music. Other Bahamas Breeze location visits, I've heard them play remakes of island music and these remakes are covered by bands with no true authenticity or connection to the music. They do a cover and restaurants play it. Why not just play the original song and artist? Grand National was a beautiful dinner, with great decor, great food and drinks, and the music brought was nice as well.

The staff takes too long to serve and they are not trained properly. Waited at least 1 hr before food came out. Waited another 30 min for check. Not organized as the other bahama breezes. The waitress was serving the food as well as the helpers from the kitchen big mess. Quantity of the food was not as expected rip off for fish tacos no fish at all. Waste of money. Will not be back to this one.
