“Bimini Rocks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Have had dinner in the bar several times in the past 2 months. Have also had dinner in the restaurant. No matter where you eat the food is always excellent. The service in the bar is totally on point. The bartenders and manager seem to know what you need before you ever have to ask for it. They are on top of their game. You will definitely see me there often.

“One of my favorite restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

The service was excellent. The food was very good and the presentation was fantastic.
I will be there at least once a week from now on. I'll have to try everything on the menu.
The view is fabulous and the sunset is remarkable.

“Not an option”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Casey Key Fish House was so crowded we decided to try this place down the street. OK menu, OK bar, outdoor options. (however with red tide going on, outdoors was not an option). We ate in the bar as it was early and the restaurant area was very empty. Martini was lousy. Chicken tenders, average. When asked if we wanted sauce for them, we requested sweet n sour. Server never returned and when he finally did, said nope we have nothing. Most of the meal was done by then. Bimini Bouillabaisse was terrible. All of the fish was overcooked. Very little rice to soak up the "gravy." Karaoke was about to begin, in a very small bar, so we were ready to go. When the server, with zero personality, gave us the bill, we noticed he did not charge us for our 2nd round of drinks. We pointed that out and barely received an acknowledgement. If we ever return, it will be to have a drink outside as it does offer water views. Besides that, no thank you.

Pete C, Owner at Bimini Bar & Grill, responded to this review, January 21, 2013
We want to express how disappointed we are that you had anything less than an excellent experience at the Bimini. As a “Mom & Pop” shop, we truly care about each guest, and we cannot allow a valuable patron, such as yourself, to leave dissatisfied.

Although our Bouillabaisse generally receives rave reviews, we clearly we not performing up to our own standards on the day that you came in. We have discussed your issues with chef and kitchen staff, who will take great care to ensure that they do not overcook the seafood in our Bouillabaisse, and we are now back to hand breading our chicken tenders to order, after briefly experimenting with a different product. We are also currently interviewing many exciting bartender candidates and we expect to have some new faces in place before the end of the week.
We respectfully request that you give us another shot and offer you Lunch or Dinner on us. We sincerely apologize for your negative experience and would appreciate an opportunity to make it up to you.

Thank You,
Stephanie & Pete Copeland

“Wonderful Thanksgiving Feast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

We were at our condo during Thanksgiving 2012 and looked around for a place to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner. We found an ad for Bimini and made a reservation. Due to a mix-up on our part, we got the time confused and the restaurant called and were very nice about it. We stated that we were still coming and were on our way. Fortunately, we had an early time so they weren't crowded when we got there(but were when we left). The buffet included champagne and the owner came around and poured refills! The food was fresh and very good with the usual standards. Dessert and coffee were also included in the price which was very reasonable and less than most of the other restaurants we checked. We will be going back when we are in the area again!

“One of our new favorites”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

Been here several times over the last few months. Service is excellent and the food is good. The menu has something for everyone. Nice Bar downstairs and restaurant with a view upstairs. We wil be back. If you are looking for a change of pace and nice atmosphere give it a try.
