The hostess had the absolute worst attitude and was actually saying negative things about me and my husband because we asked for a booth. The service was fine, the food was okay.

Was for hubby birthday. Never seem to get these birthday coupons that I hear about all the time... aside from that, my one complaint, if any, was that we had to wait behind a line of people who didn’t have reservations, even though we told them at the front that we had a 5:00 pm reservation; that and the fact that I have a knee and back issue so standing around for a few minutes was uncomfortable.

So, what’s the point of a reservation if I have to wait behind others who don’t have one till the queue line is cleared before they will take my name and check us in. Also, when happy hour ends at 6:00pm and we are waiting 10 minutes till 5:10, that’s not really cool when that could make the different of having enough time to place one more order before happy hour is over... thanks for listening and keeping this all in mind. Otherwise it was nice, and a birthday dessert offer would have also been nice too..

We had some friends visiting from IL. They asked me to pick the resturant, and I wanted a nice place they've never been to. I choose Bahama Breeze and was not disappointed. Great service, food, and atmosphere. Thank you for a great night.

In the area for a football game and I was very happy with the visit. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and very friendly. She even help with directions to our game. The drinks from the bar were delicious almost a copy of what we saw on the menu pictures. The food came out fast and freshly warm , delicious. Drinks....Painkillers....made to perfection. Cheese balls appetizer were great. My shrimp and grits very tasty and well cooked. Yes , I recommend this place to everyone.

Enjoyed the salmon entree salad. I had the chef blacken the salmon, and it was perfect. The clam chowder was also delicious. Interesting beer. Good service. "Island vibe" venue.

Bahama Breeze always provides fresh delicious food, great appetizers and the specialty drinks amazing. Usually enjoy the Bahama Mama drinks but for this occasion we enjoyed the refreshing coconut Mohitos! A great place for a group dinner and the service was excellent.

Atmosphere isn’t quite as nice as other Bahama Breeze restaurants in the area. Food and service are both average. The ribs had a good amount of meat on them but the BBQ sauce was thin and not very flavorful. The house salad was very good with a flavorful dressing.

I have been here a few times now. And overall the food is good. However there is substantial inconsistencies. The first time I had the Key West Shrimp & Grits (about a month ago) it was outstanding. I had it last night, and it was barely mediocre. This is a major problem as far as I am concerned. My husband had the short rib & oxtail and it was great. But now I wonder if it will be good next time. And to show the inconsistency I mention, the initial picture is the Shrimp and grits I previously had here (same location) that was awesome.

Always stop there on the way back from the airport when friends visit. Their happy hour specials with half price appetizers and $5 drink specials are an especially good deal.

i booked an outside table because the inside is normally dark and cold and we wanted to enjoy the live music.
we were seated far from the music stage but the volume was still a bit overwhelming to where we had to keep repeating what we were saying to each other.
not sure if the waitress is new but she only brought 2 sets of utensils for a party of six and we then had to find someone to bring us some more after food was served. it was difficult finding our waitress for the most part of our stay.
the food was only ok this time. its normally great but this time it was alright only. i ordered the siracha chicken sandwich and there was no sauce this time. didnt bother asking because it would have taken longer. the appetizers and the alcoholic drinks we ordered were great but the entrees was not as great.
we have been to bahama breeze multiple times in a handful of locations in our area and always had a great time but unfortunately this time it wasnt.
i hope the next time we come back that it will be back to great again.

Food was average at best and since there were only three other tables taken at lunch, our server kept coming back (many times) to see if we needed anything. Atmosphere at this Bahama Breeze is not as nice as on International Drive or in Altamonte Springs.
