The food was sub par at best. We had a party of 16 and no one had a good meal. The snapper that I ordered was overcooked and had no flavor. The steaks that several others ordered were well done even though they ordered them rare to med rare. Most of the meals went back. Some came back ok but... More

Family lunch - friendly service Food speaks for itself - yellowtail, dolphin (mahi ) is outstanding - conch fritter is excellent - Bimini bread too sugary ... Nice view of the intracoastal Nice vibe

The only thing good about this restaurant these days is its location on the water. The food was bland. The mixed berry crisp that I have had many times for dessert in the past was terrible, the "crisp" looked and tasted like mushy oatmeal on top of the overcooked berries. The waitress was nice enough to take it off our... More

I had my mother’s birthday luncheon at Bimini two weeks ago. Everyone had an amazing time. The food was good but the service was great! The Bimini bread, conch fritters and calamari were a hit. Both Patti (catering manager) and Taylor (server) were attentive and very easy to work with. The restaurant has a few private dining rooms. A few... More

We called at Bimini for the first time for a early bite to eat and a drink - the outside bar was great location and atmosphere late afternoon.

The food was amazing although I had mahi mahi for the first time had to send it back. Ordered crabcakes that were delicious. The big drinks were refreshing,service was excellent but the view sitting on the patio was awesome. I will definitely be returning.

Our concierge recommended this as a nice on-the-water spot. While it is on one of the inter-coastal waterways, the view was not the best- but the food was! They advertise on the menu- "Our World Famous Bimini Bread – The most amazing bread you will ever eat, sweet and savory, served with honey butter" and it truly is. Wow! it... More
