“Great Food, Good Service, and Relaxed atmosphere and decor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Finally visited Bahama Breeze. Happy hour has certain drinks and appetizers 1/2 price. MUST try the Ultimate Pina Colada - it is out of this world Good! The Jerk shrimp is incredibly spicy and comes with bread to soak up the spicy marinade. Jerk wings are so so... no one makes jerk like they do in the Caribbean but the wings were still good and massive in size. Firecracker shrip were very good as well. All portions were well worth the 1/2 price Happy Hour special. We will be back!!!

“Good Food, Good atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

This is one of my favortie restaurants in Fort Myers. Although it is a chain, the food is very good with a wide variety of choices and large portions. Service is usually good (they do get pretty busy in the high season) and the atmosphere is fun. The outside eating area is my favorite when the weather is not too hot. The Key West Shrimp and Grits is my favorite dish although it is sesonal and not a regular menu item. you can't go wrong with a meal at Bahama Breeze.

“Fine As Usual”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Like all Darden Restaurants, this one lived up to their high standards. The atmosphere was casual and fun. We enjoyed cocktaiks by the firepit before going inside to dine. The food is always good and we all enjoyed our selections. Our waitress Tracie was pleasant and accommodating. Bahama Breeze is always a fun place to enjoy a meal.

“Something for everyone”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Been there 3 times this year. Wide variety of choices of food, but very good seafood. Food prices are fair, but wine prices are high. Gets busy during high season.

“Some good food, some not-so-good food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

I dropped into the Fort Myers Bahama Breeze just before closing with a companion. She had Mahi-Mahi with orange salsa and I had habanero wings. The Mahi-Mahi was great with a good portion and delicious salsa topping.

The wings were another story. The habanero wings were barely warm and they were tough. I think that the issue was that we were eating at closing time. The wings were probably what was left over at the end of the day and they might have been prepared before the Mahi-Mahi and sat while that fish dish was prepared. On the up side, the order of 10 wings was more like 18 which is, I think, more evidence that these were what were left over at the end of the day.

So we had one plus and one minus - unfortunately for restaurant dining the two don't even out. Overall I have to give this dinner an unsatisfactory rating.
