Steakhouse
Fueling up before hitting the fairway or simply taking in the beauty of the rolling green grounds, the Royal Blue Golf Clubhouse is a gourmet oasis worth seeking out. Specialties include a fully-loaded steakhouse-style burger, snapper ceviche with fried jalapenos, as well as the signature Blue Bear cocktail, named after the Royal Blue and the “Golden Bear” himself, Jack Nicklaus.

Is there a rating that’s higher than 5-stars? If so, this restaurant should be given it. Everything was perfect! The food was exquisite! The staff were top notch. Raul (the manager) and all of his crew went above and beyond to make my birthday celebration UNFORGETTABLE! Royal Blue Tavern is a hidden gem with the majestic Bahamar as the backdrop. Highly recommended!

Excellent service at Royal Blue! Took my grandmother here for her 84th birthday lunch and she had an excellent time. A big thank you to the team - especially the young man who even serenaded her (whose name I did not get)! Food was also great and we had a lovely afternoon.

Terrible service! Food took hours to come out and then they were missing an entree that still had to be cooked. They said kitchen couldn’t handle a large party. We were only 9 people!!!

Lamb was over cooked. Lettuce was wilted in our salad. They forgot to give me a steak knife for my lamb.

The worst dining experience ever. No hostess so we sat ourselves. I then had to give our tables menus while our waiter claimed he had to deliver checks. 30 minutes later we placed our orders which all came out wrong if they came out at all which some didn’t. An embarrassment of a restaurant for Baha Mar.

the restaurant was misrepresented to me bt the Hyatt's Baha Mar concierge, very disappointing, maybe a great post 19 hole watering hole , not an opportunity to entertain customers for a nice dinner, no bread service, no desserts, 3 labels of red wine to choose from.

This restaurant is part of the golf club and so it is busier during the day. We went for dinner and it was quiet except for the TVs. We were just 2 people, but as a group I think the place is a perfect setting.
The food was excellent though. My lobster with corn salsa was memorable!

Food and service was excellent.....but it was very deceiving being advertised as one of the restaurants on the Baha Mar Resort when in fact it was at the golf course pub. There were nothing but guys who had just finished playing golf and one other family. Again food was great but it was very awkward for my wife.

Spent 2 months making sure we had two tables of 8 for our family Christmas dinner. Talked to Vanria and Michele to confirm this would happen. Our email said one table of 8 so of course I was concerned that we would not have proper seating for the other 8. Even confirmed the morning of Christmas at hotel that we had two tables and she reassured us that we did. Of course we arrived and we had only one table. I made so many calls to be sure this would work. The good news we were set up in the bar and we all ate.
Would never recommend this place to anyone.

The experience was GREAT. Chef Pratt's food was awesome and he had fantastic personality. A nice quiet place on Thanksgiving night. Menu is casual, but like most vacation spots a bit pricey for the food. Such is vacation life. I would eat here again.

I had a group of 26 celebrating my birthday on Saturday 10 November. The service was outstanding, the food was tasty and good value for money. Miya the entertainer was awesome. My overall experience at Royal Blue was phenomenal. Jamie, Ashton and LaShan our servers and DeAngelo our bartender were all fantastic. Raul the assistant manager went above and beyond for us. Everyone in my party was blown away by the experience and we will be back soon.

It’s a golf course pub. With pretty good food. The description makes it sound kinda country cluby. It’s not. Super casual, tv playing sports everywhere. Shame on me for expecting more. My lamb was very tasty although ordered medium rare and it was cold raw in the middle. Crab mango salad was presented excellent and was enjoyed the same. If your feeling like a casual place away from the Bah Mar crowds a ok alternative

We came for the Steakhouse burgers. They were yummy, though eating outside was a challenge with the flies. Knowing this we asked for sterno to chase them away. It wasn’t enough.
Our negatives that night were the choice of music played which just doesn’t meet the sophisticated, relaxing vibe of the place and the service which is less than attentive. While I think the staff was friendly, they did not check on you enough.
We may try again.

We really enjoyed our dinner at the Royal Blue. The food and service were very good. Our server did get a little busy and another server took over. Both were fun and efficient. We also had well made drinks.
We returned for lunch before golf the next day and then had drinks after. All very good. The staff is outstanding. Lovely spot overlooking the golf course.
