“Great Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

My wife and I stopped at the Breeze after seeing La Nouba in Orlando. We were looking for a fun/tropical environment to eat dinner and have a drink so we sat on the deck. We found it! The Mojitos were truly spot on (thanks Spencer.) I had a Skirt Strip Steak w/ chimi -churri sauce and plantains. I expected it to be good, but It was fantastic! Usually, I don't expect the dish to be this good unless I am in a Latin American restaurant, but this dish left nothing to be desired. Captain Harry and his band brought life and fun to the deck area. We had a great evening out!

“Bahama Freeze - Nothing Here is Fresh”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

None of the seafood is fresh - I could smell the freezer burn on the shrimp and see the pre-grilled marks on the swordfish. The veggies were swimming in butter and oil despite requesting neither. The presentation was disgusting for a $30 plate of frozen fish and oily veggies. I wouldn't have ordered "Fresh From the Grill" had I known it was coming from the freezer.

It's a cattle drive to get into the place only to experience rushed, ambivalent service and dismal cafeteria-quality food. I haven't visited in years and somehow had fond memories of Bahama Breeze but it's smaller, dirtier and darker than I remember. Mix the lousy food with the poor service and I don't think I'll ever be back.

“Nice Setting Above Average Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

Bahama Breeze, has always been a favourite of our, but in my opinion is starting to slip behind the likes of Bone Fish Grill and BJ'S which offer better choice and service.

The cost for a family of 2 adults and 2kids was roughly $85 this included drinks 1 cocktail, 2 starters 2 kids meals and 4 mains followed by Dessert.

While I was slightly disappointed with the main course which was pretty average the starters and dessert were fantastic.
