Awesome. Sat at the bar and our service was incredible. A little sad the meat pie is off the menu but the nachos are killer. Watermelon and expresso martins were delicious and dangerous. Too good. So far from the first experience we had there last year. They have arrived.

My wife and I went here for our last dinner stop on our honeymoon and were severely disappointed. Our server wasn’t too great, the food wasn’t too bad, but we ended up getting really sick from the food. I do not recommend this restaurant.

Definitely a keeper. The service was excellent and the food was quote good. There was a lot of noise due to the football game but that contributed to a fun atmosphere. I will return.

Vacation. The bar area was extremely loud. We were moved toward the front. The couch not comfortable at all. Food choices are ... let’s just say heart attack food. We ordered oysters, didn’t look so good, some had a foul smell so we didn’t touch them. Most of the food is fried. I just sat there, had a glass of water while my family ate fish and chips because they were hungry and didn’t feel like looking for another place. The waitress was very nice. The end.

The restaurant has good food but is somewhat pricey. A steak is $50 and up which is on the high side for a restaurant that is essentially a sports bar. When you add sides, the bill can really add up. This is a place where you have to accept that you are on a vacation in a pricey destination

We had been for dinner earlier in the week and couldn’t fault the level of service or the quality of food.

However on this occasion, our order came incorrect and incomplete.
The service was poor and was only offered one drink before our meal.

Our server was awesome! He brought our drinks and our appetizers in a timely manner.

For the appetizers, the calamari was not fresh and consisted of mostly batter, so I did not enjoy them. However, nephew absolutely enjoyed his conch fritters.

For the main course, both my sister’s and my omelette were ok. My chief disappointment, however, was the portion size of my nephew’s main course; curry chicken. The dish included an acceptable amount of curry chicken, but it only came with about a half cup of cooked rice. For a $28 dish, the portion size needs to be significantly adjusted... Unfortunately, he left the restaurant still hungry...

Not what we expected, calamari was all batter and rings smaller than my fingers, menu was not what we saw on line and more of a pub/bar. Staff was friendly and items were expensive for what you are getting.

I think Swimming Pig would be a great restaurant if they could tell their customers where their food comes from. I have asked several times if the beef is grass fed or grain-fed. Every time I ask I get a new answer. I don’t trust them anymore.

That is kinda terrifying that their kitchen staff is ignorant or willing to lie. I tried to order the salmon but they told me it was farmed but they couldn’t tell me where. Was it Chinese, Scottish or Kiwi? That makes a difference.

Diners have a right to know what they putting in their body. SP excused this by saying that their supply chain is not transparent so no one knows what they are supplied. This is by far not the only restaurant to put diners in this unhealthy position but when you visit Baha Mar and pay resort prices there should be a level of expectation the you are getting the truth about what you buy to fuel your and your family.

Where to start!! Menus were torn and dirty. They are in booklet form and looked well battered and disgusting.
Service was very slow. Food was average, slow to come out and came out at different times to each guest.
the "icing on the cake" was when asked for kids menu, told there is none but we can do a small plate of spaghetti and sauce. Came out late AND!!

The price for this was $16!!!! Hostess just shrugged when we complained.

Bottom line= STAY AWAY FROM THIE RESTAURANT!! Go to 3TIdes instead for your casual dinner!!

First of all the outing was okay. I was not what I really expected Or maybe my expectation was to high. I really enjoyed the meal & the atmosphere alright to, but I really think they need to step their game up with service. When I visit restaurants I'm often greeted by an enthusiastic waiter/ waitress. One that is social with the customer in terms of food recommendations, drinks etc. I didn't have that experience, it was like I was at home and was being served by a family member. Also the menu I think needs some additional choices, at 9pm in the evening the selection wasn't so great. But I enjoyed my meal.

The bartender was outstanding It is a shame he did not have a name tag so I could tell you who he was Handcrafted watermelon and espresso martinis were absolutely delicious. We had bar food which was absolutely delicious. We had bar food which was absolutely delicious. A sausage burger sandwich with caramelized onions and a beef pie. What a difference a year makes The service the food and especially the drinks have improved 100 fold

A steak sandwich consisted of a huge roll, of odd consistency, and about 1/6lb of some weird meat that resembled a Steak-um from the grocery store freezer. Very disappointing. The lobster quesadilla was more plentiful, but lobster was rubbery with no flavor.

We went in without a reservation and they told us it was going to be an hour and a half wait but there were so many tables open. So we left and I went on opentable and it
said there was a reservation in 15 minutes so I booked it. After 15 minutes we went back and got seated right away. Our alcoholic drinks took forever to come (I think she forgot about them). And the food was just ok. I got a burger and I’ve had better fast food ones than that one. The nachos were good though.

This is located on a upper scale resort where you typically will pay more to eat. While this is true the prices were reasonable and you could find a variety of items on the menu without going broke. Portions were good as was the service.

Have reservations at least a day ahead. Why? I’m not sure-it’s like a big sports bar. Loud/big screens everywhere and okay food to boot. I just think all of Baha Mar is like this. Loud/club like/Vegas meets the beach atmosphere. Food is ok - nothing that wowed me. Expensive but knew this going in to it. Best value food so far at Baha Mar has been the food trucks/huts down by the beach.

I'm totally ok paying a premium when at a vacation resort but I expect decent food and service. This place was just lacking across the board and $18 for a ham sandwich with an egg (croque madam) and no sides is a bit ridiculous.
