The open door reservation was entirely pointless. Arrived at a half full restaurant and waited as they seated others walking in with no reservation. The food and wait staff were good but overall an unpleasant experience due to hostess incompetence

The food, ambience, and service was outstanding. I made a special trip for my girlfriend and her daughter who came to visit from Chicago. My girlfriend and I had been there before and thought that she would enjoy it. We were successful. The only criticism that I have is that I wanted to sit outside when I made the reservation but that didn’t happen. I don’t understand the policy and we didn’t get the seats outdoors even though I thought that I had reserved one. Still love the Breeze.

The food has gone downhill. I ordered salmon and received a mushy fish of unknown type...definitely NOT salmon. They did take it off the bill and prepared the salmon. But my husband was doneand ready to go by then. It was bit like the quality of Bahama Breeze in Orlando.

Initially there was a wait for our reservation. Drinks are weak and sweet. Could not make a drink as requested because it was not on the menu, I assume.

I had a great experience with my family celebrating my daughter birthdays. The only thing that really made me very uncomfortable was the way the the front host talk to me. She was not friendly, she was not helpful.
Make sure that all your host are friendly.
Thank you for you time.

We've been going to Bahama Breeze in Altamonte & Daytona for years, and were very excited when we heard one was coming closer to home in Sanford. I was surprised the place was almost empty @6:30 pm on a Sunday, hopefully it picks up or was just a down night. Regardless the food was top-notch per usual. The margaritas were on point & the Aruba Red was flowing nice & cold. Our server wasn't great addressing drinks as we finished, we were pretty steady waiting for refills or another round despite the empty dining room. It wasn't unacceptable whatsoever, just something to note. Overall good experience as it usually is, keep up the good work guys!

A work group of 9 went for lunch, celebrating the holidays. The service left something to be desired. Had a reservation. When we checked in they said the table was ready, just needed to put out the menus. Fifteen minutes they returned to seat us. The food came out over a wide period of time, some had almost finished when others were just being served. I know this is not a Bahama Breeze wide problem because we dine at this and the Altamonte Springs location regularly. Service at the Altamonte Springs location is consistently better across the board.

For my salon Christmas party I felt a little disappointed that there wasn’t more enthusiasm from the waitress. It would’ve been nice if our waitress was a little bit more engaging with the party she was nice but just very matter-of-fact. One of my guests was told just before the food was delivered that her item was no longer available on the menu because you were out of it. This was a Christmas party that I was holding for my staff and it’s a little disappointing when there was nothing Else that appealed to her diet choice. We ordered firecracker shrimp and it was extremely hot I don’t know if you’ve changed your recipe but none of us could eat it. We loved the ambience of the porch but I was somewhat disappointed with the evening in general.

Order salad with dressing on the side. It was drenched in salad dressing. Had trouble getting waitress attention. Drink refills challenging. At the end finally ask another waitress to get check. She snapped at us.

Well I have eaten here a few times over the past month and honestly this was probably the worst time we have had and they were definitely off their A game. Food didn’t not taste great and it took a while for it to come out. Waitress had to be found for us to get drink refills and the service was not excellent.

This is a good place and location to go out for a night of something different. The food was good, service was about what to be expected, although the noise levels are a little to much to handle from time to time so don’t expect to get a nice conversation going.

New location of Bahama Breeze close to Seminole TownCenter. Good food, but service was lacking - possibly due to inexperience, since it is a relatively new location. Food was good, order came out together and was correct, food was hot. Made reservation on OpenTable and we were seated right away. We will definitely dine there again.
