Chips and guacamole appetizer arrived after the main and we were charged $3 for extra chips. Server was nice but the back of the house seemed very disorganized. Loud, drunk people behind us but that goes with the territory and wasn’t their fault.

We went there twice this past week. We really like everything about it. Only problem is that, like everything else on the property, it is ridiculously expensive.

We had a lot of issues at dinner. We had a party of 12 and 3 people never got their food and one was completely wrong. We did speak to the manager and he took off 20% off the bill. I had put in a preorder of appetizers and the server knew nothing about it until I brought it up. The food we did reveie was very good. Service was slow

We did try again for breakfast and service was not much better. We asked for a refill on a drink 3 times and never received them.

Had a great time at this place, the food and service was first class. Special mention for waitress Tiffany who was really on the ball.

Hadn’t realised it was a sports bar
When we arrived there were many over enthusiastic sports fans who were incredibly noisy which unless you are involved does tend to dampen your enjoyment of the evening when you are having to shout to get yourself heard over the melee !
Good if you’re in that frame of mind but otherwise not so!
Food good. Husband had the chicken curry which he enjoyed. I had the Caesar salad (spinach) with prawns which I also appreciated. Just quite expensive and extremely noisy

Fun place to eat and drink on our vaca with friends. Prices at the resort are out of control- but this option was almost reasonable- good food

Surprisingly the pub food was quite delicious. Had the smoked salmon salad and it was divine. Had the mud cake for dessert. The place was too expensive.

We were at the restaurant on the Monday thoroughly enjoyed it. my daughter wanted to come back for her birthday on Wednesday. 2'of us had the premier fillet mine was not cooked to how I requested it. Over cooked. For a fillet we were both dissappointed. I had the baked potatoe was a bit surprised when it didn't have butter or sour cream with it.

The food was delicious but the resort prices were ridiculous. $6 for a can of soda? $12 for a bottle of water?

The food was very good. I ordered a burger and it was delicious. My brother and sister ordered the fish n chips and did not enjoy it as much. The service was good but nothing to write home about. It was definitely very good for pub food and is excellent for a casual lunch or dinner when you want some good burger and fries. Would definitely return!!

I went the Swimming Pig 3 of the 5 mornings that I was at SLS
I enjoyed the atmosphere and my server Precious was as pleasant as anyone could ask.
After seeing me the third visit...she knew what to get me and it was true service with a smile.
Be sure to visit the swimming pig and ask for Precious.
Get the eggs your way, or the breakfast platter and start your day off right.
Thanks for adding to my vacation!!!!

Spent six nights at Baha Mar and all of the other restaurants were above-average in food and service. The Swimming Pig was an extremely disappointing experience. Toted as a pub, it had 20 beer taps, all of which were out of stock. All twenty. No tap beer at a pub! There were also no wine glasses. The waiter had to personally go down to the basement to retrieve two, which took a solid 15 minutes. The place was not busy. It was midweek and the place was not filled to capacity so where were all the wine glasses? The waiter left our dirty dinner plates on the table while placing down dessert. We asked a bus boy to remove them. He took some and left others, never coming back for the rest. We also waited for ten minutes for dessert utensils which lead to melted ice cream for the kids. The place was noisy, which wasn’t from patrons conversing, but overly loud music. That could be overlooked since it is a pub and not an elegant restaurant. The food was indeed good, which was the only positive aspect of this dinner. Was it good enough for the price? Debatable. But other than that, this was a thumbs down for our family. Didn’t compare to the other Baha Mar restaurants. I wouldn’t return there nor recommend it to anyone staying at this resort.

As are all the restaurants at the Baha Mar resort, the quality of the food does not measure up to the exorbitant cost of their items. (Example: $20+ calamari dish which included a grand total of 6 pieces of calamari). We had a very simple burger, hoping that at least the staff at Baha Mar could not mess up a hamburger, we were wrong. Average at best. We ordered calamari appetizer, wife had the slider appetizer for her entree, and I ordered the recommended signature burger. Add one glass of wine and one glass of beer, our check was north of $120. Sadly, it was probably the best of the really bad restaurant options at this resort.

We were seated at the very end of an already empty area where waiters were keeping dirty dishes right behind me. They were also having a discussion about something going on. It looks like the restaurant likes to collect empty dirt dishes in an area where they also seat customers. Very disgusting. After we finished our dinner realices the area where we were seated was already closed so we missed all the nice ambiance of the other areas of the restaurant. There were several tables available so was not matter of lack of options.
Will not come back ever again.

Service was very rude! The food was great but overpriced even for resort food. The experience was alright. Cool environment and ambiance. But the service was so disrespectful and offensively rude that it was beyond unacceptable. I would never go back or recommend it!

Great place to eat! I have multiple food allergies and they reassured me that I would be fine eating there and I was! It’s a huge relief to find a place especially out of the country where you can trust them to cook food without allergens. We will be coming here everytime we come back to Baha Mar!!!

Mains showed up before the apps, “martini specialists” they are not, and one main order delivered wrong...after all the corrections. It was a complete miss really and perhaps an off night, but for that kind of money you anticipate a certain level of diligence.

We ate here 3 times. Food was great. Service on second day was extremely slow. Third day , our reservation was given to another party which I found very strange and annoying. Lucky for you, another table was available.

We had the share platter and it was really tasty and filling. The Mac n cheese balanced out the various meats in just the right way! The reason I gave the food only two stars was because they advertised over 10 local and international beers on tap and when we arrived the server advised us there were only 3 available. My husband is a beer lover, and we picked the restaurant because of the beer options, so this was extremely disappointing for him. If they had all the beers they advertised, this would have been a 5 star rating.

Best “casual” bar/restaurant in the resort. We ate there twice and loved it both times.
