The Swimming Pig
We were sat next to a large wall blocking all the tv’s. Ordered drinks that didn’t come for 20 minutes. Appetizer- the nachos were the best thing of the meal. Our meals came 20 minutes apart! My husband ordered bbq ribs. What he received was ribs with Asian teriyaki sauce on them. The macaroni and cheese was supposed to have bacon, it didn’t. My fish and chips was an entire fish, not cut up, so it was so dry. There is an automatic 15% gratuity so our server barely came to the table. I would never go again!
Good food & drinks for a reasonable meal at Baha Mar! The service was friendly there was a great variety of food and drink choices in a comfortable setting!
Best restaurant in Bahamas on our trip this year. The food was all delicious and aesthetically pleasing. Very cool decor. The only thing lacking was service- a little slow. And pretty loud. Overall, fantastic experience. Will be back.
Absolutely amazing! Great portion sizes for the price, excellent food, and excellent service.
Over priced terrible service
Walked into the restaurant for 6:30pm reservation. Other patrons were watching the football playoffs & enjoying their meals. Given we were on vacation, we were looking forward to doing likewise. Boy were we mistaken. I guess they don’t know that ASIANS watch football, eat wings & drink beer also.
By 7:30 pm, the waitress asked whether we wanted to order anything else. I told her we weren’t sure as 2 of us were still eating our meals. Minutes later, she brought us our check and stood there waiting for me to sign. Like I said, we were still eating our meal. Minutes later, while my wife and daughter went to the restroom, a waiter cleared our table taking the remainder of my daughter’s fries and wings with them. I asked our waitress why we were getting the rush job. She said that we could stay at our table if we wanted and finish our drinks.
Ten minutes later, the hostess told us we would have to leave our table but she would “ALLOW US” to stand near the door and watch the last few minutes of the game. As I stood there, I could not help but notice we were the only party asked to give up their table. The other patrons were allowed to keep their tables.
The hostess could not explain why if it is restaurant practice to allow diners around 1 1/2 hours to finish their meals, we were given our check & told to leave our table after around 1 hr & 10 minutes. The hostess claimed the next party who reserved our table had arrived and we would have to leave. Nobody else was seated at that table during the time we stood in the back of the restaurant.
We dined at several of the Bahamar restaurants this trip and never encountered treatment like this. As we left the restaurant, I don’t know for certain why we were singled out but its sad for the management to allow it to happen.
Great place, nice causal food along with well portioned drink sizes - you won’t feel like you’re not getting your values worth. They are child friendly and the hostesses were great!
Food is slightly pricey, but good—typical for the resort. Very loud atmosphere. Service was okay overall, but very fast (in and out for dinner within 30 mins).
The salmon salad was delicious. Our server was friendly and kept our water glasses full. We enjoyed the Bahama Mama and the Bahama Papa
Fabulous breakfast. Wonderful service. Definitely recommend!!!
Good food, taste and done carefull. Great place to go with family.
We went back for the caramel french toast a second time, so good! Very comfy chairs, design details very cool, beautiful atmosphere and the wait staff is exceptional. Breakfast for a family of 4 around $140. Pricey to eat at, but the food is very good.
Great wait staff, good food, a bit pricy.
Great choices. Prices are fair, but Bahamian mandatory taxes make everything more expensive. Great quality of food and staff are amazing
The food was not good and it took a long time. It also was very loud in the restaurant (music) so hard to have a conversation with table mates.
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.
Best wings, best burger. Highly recommended. Would have ate here every night if I tasted this onmy first night
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.
Good flatbreads and fries. Overall one of the better options at Baha Mar :)
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?
Way overpriced for mediocre food and even worse service. Absolutely wouldn’t make the journey to the Bahamas to eat here.
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!!
food tasted great, ambiance was like a fancy sports bar.
Had lunch and dinner at the Swimming Pig.. Everything was delicious and service was great. Highly recommend going here
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!!!!
Oink oink 😝
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.
Unimpressed. The food was way overpriced for pub food. The selection was poor and service okay.
Waiter Kevin was fantastic!*
Just ok...but it was a basic breakfast. Eggs bacon potatoes.
excellent food and service. very lively and friendly staff. bone in Rib-eye steak was very tasty
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!
