Good. Crying babies. Waited 12 minutes before someone came to the table. I like BB and we visit often.

2 friends who hadn’t been together for a few years enjoyed our unrushed dinner together with good food & excellent service. Unfortunately due to forecast of Severe Thunderstorms, we couldn’t dine on the outside patio w/island drums music. Next time!

Good for for a chain restaurant. Lunch menu is definitely "best value." Only issue was restaurant was relatively empty, yet initially seated directly under a vent. Absolutely freezing.

Our server was great, but the staff clearly needs more knowledge of different food restrictions and dietary needs. Our server had absolutely no idea what Vegans could eat. At all. That’s concerning since it’s just no animal products. However, she went back to the kitchen to confirm what we could eat and validated my assumption of the black bean burger with no bun or any animal products.

The food runner was extremely rude while bringing out our meals.

When my husband and my food cam out, it had cheese on it. So again, clearly the staff needs to be trained on dietary needs and restrictions. If the ticket says vegan, it should be (ESPECIALLY THOSE HANDLING THE FOOD) common sense that that would be no animal products at all.

I really hope this review finds its way to management, because this is very concerning. Not just for our experience, but what if someone has a full on allergy that was discussed at the table and the kitchen staff do not understand and cause a severe reaction??

Lastly, I noticed that a handful of servers or runners were not using serving trays to bring out drinks?? This is not serv safe code and frankly disgusting. I hope you have cameras, so you can see this. Some people would have a row of glasses pressed up against their chest to run it out to the tables. That’s a huge violation that I will let the department of health know about should I not be contacted back within a week with how this will be dealt with

I look forward to your response. Thank you

Took over 10 mins until someone finally came to our table when we were first seated (which was only because we made eye contact while the server was walking by). There was old food all over our menus. The server was very polite, but didn’t write our order down when she was taking it and came back a couple times to confirm. Otherwise the food and drinks were good.

First post-pandemic visit to this restaurant for us. It was one of our regular spots. Our reservation was honored on time, and our server was friendly and professional. Ordered drinks and food at the same time since we were both very hungry. Mojito Cubano and virgin Pina Colada were both very tasty. We ordered Calypso shrimp pasta and Jerk shrimp with rice in a half pineapple. Unfortunately when our food arrived we were served Jerk chicken in a half pineapple instead of shrimp…. The Calypso shrimp pasta was very good, and the light creamy sauce had a nice kick. It took quite a while for the kitchen to correct the mistake with our other entree, but when it arrived it was very flavorful. Maybe not the best experience to welcome us back, but we will return, especially now that the live music is back.

Very nice it’s been sometime since we came here, we ate outside and the server was awesome wore her mask and made us comfortable, however you do have staff bringing out food that do not wear mask, so that may not be comfortable for some and you may want to address that even if they have been vaccinated, optics is everything
The food was on point our server kiona was magnificent

Interesting menu, food was good. We didn’t realize a mall location could be so...uncomfortable. We sat outside, which was a big mistake, street and parking lot was a drag strip, very loud music from cars and people hanging out in the parking lot. Most weren’t even going into the restaurant. Don’t sit outside unless you enjoy hanging out with mall rats and rap music.

I have been to Bahama Breeze many times before. I typically get the same appetizer each time. This time my shrimp was a bit overcooked and greasy but it was still okay. My dinner was really delicious. The waiter was very nice and attentive. He was a little too attentive, he came to my table about 10 times asking how everything was. It was a tad annoying. However, if I had to choose I would take that over a waiter who you have to search for and never checks on you. I would have preferred a balance.
