Great food but service is lacking a bit

The food is really good and the ambiance is great but the service is a bit lacking. I was a bit annoyed that I kept having to flag down people to get help. They don't check on you to see if you need anything.

Never seen this place crowded, although the inside is set up nicely and the food on both visits was tasty. They stay open late and provided a late night food option when a lot of the other places have closed.

We were really looking forward to eating at Iries, but unfortunately our service was terrible. We had to ask for our waters to be filled or additional cocktails. My husband ordered steak and requested a steak knife which didn't come until the meal was over. We asked for condiments which didn't arrive until the meal was over. I will say... More

This restaurant is located on Grand Lucayan resort property, but you don't need to be a guest there to eat at this restaurant. Just tell the guards at the gate that you're going to Iries. This is larger than your average Freeport/Lucayan restaurant and occupies a nice facility. Like all restaurants on Grand Bahama, the food was more expensive that... More

The food was actually much better than I expected (and big portions!), but the service was very slow and not a single smile from our waitress. We had to ask for more water multiple times.

we stopped in here one day for dinner. this would have been my favorite restaurant if we did the all inclusive. Good variety of food and cooked well. very nice staff and you can sit inside or out depending on the temp. most nights they have live music and every night they have a DJ but he needs some work....

Never had a bad meal here. OMG the conch chowder!!! The grilled grouper and mahi mahi are the best. Nice staff and friendly too.

The food and the atmosphere are very good. The conch and the grouper are not to be missed. The service was also excellent.

The food was not flavorful or inventive for the price. Portions were tiny especially for a seafood sampler and this coming from someone who doesn't need big portions. Service was non-chalant. The atmosphere was actually a bit depressing and felt rundown.

We ate at Ires on our last night in the Bahamas. What a disappointment. The service was very slow. We were greeting promptly because we got there early, but while waiting for our food to arrive, we counted at least 4 other parties that got up and left before receiving any service. The next party at one table were given... More
