Description: Named after the Bimini Islands in the Bahamas, Bimini’s first opened its doors in 1974 after being granted the Province’s first Neighborhood Pub license. The busy bar was quickly embraced by the post Summer of Love-era hippie locals; environmental agency Greenpeace’s head office was across the street, and many of their radical plots were hatched in strategy meetings over pints at Bim’s.

“Food is blah and washroom is disgusting”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Went there with a group of friends, ordered 4 main entrees, Salmon was terrible, tasteless (did the cook forgot to season the fish???) and did not taste fresh. Fish and chips was good - but pricey. Had an equivalent of a sheperd's pie, nice presentation but portion was small and price was high. The only good dish was the Rosemary Lamb, only about 4 small slices of lamb, since we were sharing, I cut the lamb into half, still pricey for the portion they served. Poutine was salty! Did I mention it was pricey?
The washroom are unisex, which makes it very challenging for women, there were pee everywhere on the floor, it was disgusting! This was early in the evening at about 8pm, the patrons weren't that ebriated, can you imagine what the floor is going to look like later in the evening! I did not go in to check it out...did not dare to go into the washroom ever again. If it weren't for the entertainment coupon, I give this place a skip. 2 Thumbs down! When we left at about 11.30pm, there was a wait line! They were charging entrance fee?

“was good once”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

this is just a pub nothing much. It has been in the area for 30+ years was closed for 3 years due to a fire. It smells like a bar food is bar food. If this is the type of food you like go for it. Will not kill you. But there are better in the area.
