Our favorite restaurant at the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar. Extensive drink menu for the adults and the kids say the chicken tenders here are better than at the other restaurants.

Ridiculously overpriced! Service was good and people were very friendly, but it was just way too expensive for pub food.

Typical American processed food, namely unhealthy fried protein, with lots of fat, salt, sugar, spices, cholesterol, and alcohol. Forget about fruit, legumes, and vegetable. You can easily get a stroke or develop any kind of heart diseases at 35 or 40. Amen

It took us 2 hours to get our dinner served. There must have been a problem in the kitchen. Other tables were just leaving due to such poor service. Once our food arrived, it was actually good. But our overall experience was very bad. We had to beg for bread. The right thing to do would've been to comp a round of drinks or an entree or two.

Good food but I cannot believe how we were treated. Had a table booked with a 2 year kid. We got food after more than an hour. Kid felt asleep on the table by that time. We didn’t get what we ordered either. Whatever arrived was tasty but experience was way below any expectations. Sad, very sad... whoever is cooking, congrats, whoever manages the rest, complete disaster!

Overpriced and mediocre food/service. Our entrees took too long to arrive and were cold. Check out the food trucks for better pub food.

How bad could service be. Took 3 times ordering a Guinness to get it. Never did get the kids orange juice. 35 mins for kids food to come out was not acceptable. Steak was excellent though.

We went to The Swimming Pig for some pub food. We were seated and the waiter took our drink and appetizer order. About 10 minutes later our calamari arrived. It was quite good but our beer was still missing. 5 minutes later 2 of our 3 beers arrived. We ordered large beers and were surprised to see the glasses were only 10 ounces. The last beer finally came followed shortly by the food - burgers. The burgers were quite good. We ordered another round of beer which again took about 10 minutes to come and again had one missing. Very poor service as the place was only 1/4 full. The kicker was the bill for 6 small beers, an order of calamari and 3 burgers was $189!

Excellent food, a little pricey, but this IS a vacation destination. Very loud. Would go back again despite price and noise. Food was worth it. I had the bison burger, wife had Bahamian snapper. Both were way above expectations.

Extremely poor check in- host never looked up, told us to wait for our table... never to return for us. After 30 min, we asked to be seated and were met with blank stares. We had to show them 3 empty tables for 2 that they were not willing to give us, preferring to keep them available for making a table of 6, if needed. After finally convincing them to do this, we got no apology and no service. After waiting 15 min for someone to acknowledge us or even bring us water, which never happened, we left.

Very hit or miss! Some of our choices were great (truffle fries, calamari, lobster quesadilla) and some weren’t (conch sandwich should have been hotter, chicken sandwich was pretty mediocre). Unfortunately the service wasn’t on point. It took a while to get seated even with reservations, and when they sat us (party of 6) we were sat with 3 menus but 8 sets of silverware. Everyone seemed really confused about how many of us there were. Apps came out super fast but entrees took forever, and one of the entrees didn’t come out until everyone else was finished eating. The entree that took the longest was a kids Mac n cheese and the explanation was that the chef didn’t like how it looked?? I would return but maybe order differently.

I have been here 6 times and plan to be back many more times in my 9 day stay at the resort! The food has been on point every time I’ve been here. Wine is tasty and well priced compared to the typical resort prices. The pesto pizza is to die for- kids chicken tenders are delicious... chicken curry yum- anything chicken related is amazing and very well cooked! So far I can’t go wrong- enjoy- it’s a must try

This was our first night stay at Baha Mar, we wanted something casual and a place to watch the game.The service was awful- we did not get anyone to our table for st least 15 minutes and then our drinks did not come out until our appetizers. When time for food our child’s meal never arrived and even after telling another server it took another 10 minutes- it was clearly forgotten. Food was ok- but service is terrible, my husband and son stayed after dinner to watch the game at the bar and could barely get served- they left after 1 drink. I have never wrote a bad review- this is my exception especially for how pricey it can be and the included gratuity which I think does not help because servers know they don’t have to go over and above because they are already getting 15%
