Our service was wonderful and the food was great. However the fact that you have to get back in the check in line after they text you your table is ready, wait another 10 min. In line is ridiculous. This is after we had a open table reservation, had checked in, and still had to wait and then wait again b

Our server was fantastic and drinks were great! Food was okay, everyone got what they ordered, theirs was okay but I found a chunk of something non-edible (paperboard?) in my chicken pasta so I completely lost my appetite. Server apologized, credited our bill and manager came by to apologize as well & ask if there was anything she could do.

It's been over 10 years since I've been to a Bahama Breeze but everything is still amazing! The restaurant was out of my favorite drink so I tried something new which was ok.

Disappointed that this location didn’t offer a happy hour drink menu and half off appetizers when the one located at Wesley chapel does.

We dine at Bahama Breeze at least once a month if not more. My husband and I get the same thing every time. Last night we ordered our usual, and when we got our bill a $2.49 charge was shown for salad. When we place the order for fish tacos my husband asked to have side salad instead of french fries. The waitress said there was an upcharge for the salad. We questioned this as we have never been charge this before. I even had a previous receipt with me for a gift card that I had a balance on to show. We had the exact same thing. The manage came over and said that he would waive the $2.49. We again questioned why this happened. He said we were wrong, and that they have a button showing the salad as a substitute, and we should have been charged. We questioned again for our own future reference why everytime we have been there that we weren't charged as well as doing the same thing at the other Bahama breeze location. The manager Eric was very challenging to us. We weren't concerned about the $2.49. He just kept going on and on about some button, and that we should be charged. My husband finally told him just leave we're ok. he wouldn't even look at our previous receipt. just insisted everyone was wrong. He again came back and said maybe it was a lunch menu. We just said you are ruining our dining experience. We totally enjoy Bahama Breeze. We were just trying to enjoy our Memorial Day dinner. My husband is a veteran, and this was such a disappointment.

Today we had lunch at Bahama Breeze on the bay. We ordered 2 fabulous drinks looked as good as they tasted. My stuck to his usual beer. The server I believe his name was Arnt? Not sure was very nice, not rushing us at all. I ordered the cheeseburger which was juicy and delicious my husband ordered the jerk shrimp and our quest had coconut shrimp meal which she also loved. The views are spectacular and the service is equally as great. We will definitely be back.

I met my mom here for an early Mother’s Day lunch. Unfortunately her chicken was over cooked and salad was wilted. I’ve eaten here several times but this was an unfortunate experience for a special occasion.

Overall experience was good. Love the water view outside. Food was okay. I’m a picky eater and since there is no chicken tender meal for adults, they charge you for two kids meals and bring you out double on one plate instead of just an up charge. Also the tenders are from a frozen box, I know they’re for kids so I can’t complain but I think they should offer coconut chicken tenders with the coconut shrimp batter for adults. That would be phenomenal!

Food and service was great. Only negative was the changes made with Covid regarding the slimmer menu. One of the main treats we enjoyed was the rum cake and unfortunately its no longer on the menu.
