The service is always outstanding. The food and drinks are excellent, and portion size is good. We were sorry that they did away with the Nachos. They were one of our favorite appetizers. Love going to this place; however it’s very noisy inside; therefore, we like sitting outside. This works great, if the weather is nice and you don’t have a large group. According to the host, they don’t let you push tables together on the outside, to accommodate a large group.

I’m not sure how long the wait was, but it was organized and because of my reservation, our group didn’t wait long. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and experienced. She made suggestions and answered all questions with enthusiasm. Entrees took quite a bit of time to come, but they were packed, and our server was very reassuring about our food. She checked on us and was very attentive throughout the meal, even though she was busy. Food was excellent, as well as their choices of drinks. Overall an excellent experience.

Went yesterday for dinner. Food was very good, staff was very friendly and sweet with the kids. They had made a mistake with open table reservation, but quickly and politely fixed it today.
I like a place that does the small things right, and I appreciated their customer service.

It was my birthday and the service was HORRIBLE!!! The server brought our meals out and then the waitress brings our salads out. She literally lost led stunned when I told her to take them back. No apology. I gave her a gift card which she returned to me and said was never activated. I proceeded to go online—while she was charging my credit card—and it showed $50! No apology. I finally went to the manager who offered me a 25 percent discount. Meals were only subpar and clearly were under the heat lamps too long. What a terrible experience.

The look and decor of the restaurant look great, but that’s where my complements end. The service was slow and the waiter did not check on us after our food came. The taste of the food was subpar. For the money it would have been better going to the neighboring Matchbox or Cheesecake Factory restaurants. Usually if the food is bad the service is good, but in this case neither is worth a return trip.

Hadn't been to a Bahama Breeze location in many years ago, when I lived in Atlanta. The seafood paella was always my favorite.. The rice seemed very dry, almost old tasting. Also the server knew it was my birthday, but no offer was given for special dessert to celebrate.

We went for a small retirement luncheon, which worked out really well, as the restaurant was not busy and we got choice of seating. They can accommodate a dozen people in a long table, which was fine, otherwise we would have to sit at nearby separate tables. The meal and service was good and we had fun.

The problem with trying to review our experience is that we never actually got to eat. We made a reservation through Open Table days in advance. We were having a family celebration with 10 people, and Bahama Breeze was one of the few places with availability for our preferred time (6:00). We checked in a half hour early (5:30) and by 7:00 still had not been seated, at which point our kids (and adults) were very hungry and we had to leave. We spoke with the front desk multiple times and we were told that even though we had a reservation, they were seating all groups that had checked in before us (regardless of whether they had a reservation). One person mentioned that they had too many reservations to handle. The staff really seemed like they could not have cared less, and they were just going to continue seating based on check in time without regard to existing reservations. It makes me question the point of going through Open Table, though I will give it a few more tries because I haven't had issues until this restaurant. This Bahama Breeze, however, is not worth the trouble of giving a second try.
