This is a fun experience and the servers made it very enjoyable. I love the buffet bar more than the meats but I never pass up a chance to get my fill of delicious roast meat.

The hostesses were welcoming and got us to our table on time. Alex, our waitress, was incredible. We had two separate tables for our party and she was timely, helpful, pleasant, and willing to go the extra mile when we brought in our own cake. Wonderful experience - will be back again soon!

We ate outside because of the lovely weather. Thus there was a bit more noise and less "atmosphere" than being inside. This is one of our favorite restaurants and we often come here for special occasions. The food is outstanding & reasonably priced. The service, was likewise outstanding. The waiter was attentive without being intrusive. Clearly one of the restaurant gems in Chapel Hill.

It's been awhile since we had been to Bahama Breeze but this place is always a nice change up. My wife had the sangria and I had the Island Old fashion both were great. Empanadas (i.e. beef patties) with the dippings sauces were outstanding. The server was friendly and answered honestly about different items on the menu, as my wife navigated the options. The food was good but not great.

I really enjoyed my visit to Bin 54! The steaks were fantastic (with a wide variety of sauces that were EXCELLENT), and the ambience was extremely good; appropriately aged wood and dark velvets. Felt like old-world Hollywood! I was most impressed by the service. Our main server Joe was classy and friendly, and definitely knew his stuff. And there was a small procession of other servers who brought various courses and filled drinks. All dressed to the nines, and all a pleasure to interact with. Only small criticism might be that the ambient music could be a bit loud at times. Not overpowering by any means, and we had a great dinner!

This is both mine and my wife’s favorite restaurant. We have been there several times and even have ordered through Uber Eats. We decided to share this restaurant with our family. To the person a common comment was “that every thing was delicious…everything “. The service is always great. The regular menu items are very good but be sure to ask about the specials. These are hidden gems. We look forward to our next visit.
