Ambiance was great
Door staff was very helpful
Waitress carried a cleaning bottle when she approached us at least two times.
Asked for a box three times before she returned with one.
A table away from the musician and we should have asked to be moved.

Have been going to this location for years, not much has changed. They’ve updated the Decor around the bar, which was actually really nice, really opened up the atmosphere. Our waitress was decent, I think because she was so busy we were off to a slow start, but she did the essentials. The most disappointing part was the jerk chicken pasta. It’s not the same awesome homemade tasting pasta it used to be. It was like a grainy powdered Alfredo with asparagus and mushrooms in it. I’m disappointed to say the least.

Service was ok. Waiter seemed a little impatient. The food I ordered (fish tacos) was good. Friends who ordered any of the rice sides stated that the rice was undercooked. They did receive another order. Seating was immediate, host very friendly and welcoming. Overall, good to very good from the times I've eaten here many times before.

Service was very good. A group of 6 for 2 birthdays. Fish was Luke warm and the brocoili on my plate was gray and slimy. You’d think they’d try a bit harder for a larger group. We went after 8 pm on a weekday so they weren’t so busy that they should have served subpar food.

On 07/24/2018 I arrived to Bahama Breeze for what I thought was a 7:30 reservation. I had made the reservation on 07/06/2018. So more than 2 weeks prior. Long story short we weren't seated until about 8:15 pm. initially I tried to be patient. The hostess kept going back and forth to the assumed table that my party was to be seated and said he wasn't sure how long the party would be there and that they had been there since 5 pm. not until closer to 8 pm were we offered different accommodations but it did not include the whole party sitting together. Then once they figured that out, the other large party began to depart and then we were offered that table. The manager told me that there was nothing much she could do about the seating unless we wanted to be seated at 2 different tables. I just feel like that is unacceptable when a reservation is made well in advanced.

Every time I've gone here I left full, happy and well taken care of. On one occasion, my order wasn't what I expected it to taste like. I was more than willing to just accept it, but the manager not only gave me something different, but didn't charge me for the original order, with free dessert. Definitely recommend for food and service..

I chose Bahama Breeze for my birthday dinner with my family as I had not been there in several years due to not living in the area during that time. Plus, I was so excited to be able to get my favorite dish - roasted red pepper and goat cheese appetizer. But my excitement turned to disappointment when I discovered the dish was no longer on the menu. Please bring it back.

Booked a reservation for our anniversary. Have eaten in several locations. The wait for our table was nearly on time even though they were packed. Everything was as good as we thought, however there were two large parties next to us (12 or more ) and they were very loud.

Service was very good. We went on Father's Day with a group of 6. I made a reservation through Open Table. When I arrived, the place was packed and several groups were obviously waiting for a table. When I checked in, they instantly led my party to our waiting table. Was very impressed with this given the large crowds they had. Throughout the meal, the waitress was also pleasant and helpful. She was very good on a very busy day.

The house beer was good, albeit a bit overpriced at almost $6 a pint. Other drinks like a Corona Light equally expensive at more than $5. And we had to wait for bar service to get a 2nd beer which meant we ate most of the meal without a drink. But it was busy, so I am sympathetic, but nonetheless, this was very disappointing, especially as I had a spicy meal.

Food was good, not great. I had a shrimp linguine dish that was well-done and more shrimp than I would have expected. They didn't skimp. Other party order of tilapia was not as well-received, tasteless. The paella was also reported to be very dry and unremarkable. Coconut shrimp app was very good, so mixed reviews with nothing being outstanding, and nothing being horrible.

Bill for 6 people was > $180 with 5 alcoholic drinks and 2 apps. Kinda pricey to me for an island themed Applebees or Olive Garden type place. Place was very loud and had a lot of families with young kids. Would probably go back for happy hours and as a general group meeting place, but not a spot to celebrate an occasion.

The only downfall was the reservation that was booked an hr in advance and upon arrival they claimed they never had a reservation and it was made online. We were a party of 10 and waited 30 mins to be sorry. No manager was available to complain.

We went with a group of 10 after Graduation. The food was very good, great new items on their menu and everything came out correct. Loved the hibiscus margarita and churrasco steak. We were served by two people who were both friendly and attentive. The only negative was how cold it was in the restaurant, even with a sweater on.
