A special for the day was a chicken salad stuffed tomato, and it was wonderful. The tomato was from a farmers' market and was absolutely delicious. It was served with fresh fruit - melon, grapes, orange slices, and a huge blackberry on top. My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our lunch.

What a neat little bistro. The special for the day was Fish Tacos, a good choice. Probably the best ever, even though I neglected to inform the waitress that the raw onions were to stay in the kitchen. The menu had a great selection of sandwiches, soups and salads. The small dining room exhibited a very pleasant atmosphere, warm, cozy... More

Small restaurant located in Osage Beach..in the Blair Landing shopping center. Excellent lunches. Sandwiches, soups and salads. The veggie burger..spicy bean..is always good. Also recommend the BLT. Interesting sides...and the dessert is worth saving room for! Cheesecake, gooey chocolate cake, both soooooo good. Service is always good. Small dining room...maybe only ten tables. Also fun to eat lunch, then walk... More

Food was pleasantly presented. The Fish tacos best I've ever had! My husband enjoyed his grilled Mai Mai sandwich. Their Mango cheesecake is a must have. 5 star place

This is one of my favorite girls' lunch spots. The food is always fresh and I have never had a bad or even so-so lunch there. They don't sell liquor which would be nice but tea is scrumptious.

We had lunch here and the food was good, but my husband and I both felt that they were very cheap on the protein. I had the fish tacos and they were very good, but combined the 2 tacos had about 1 ounce of tilapia. My husband had a chicken wrap and felt the same way. Combined our lunches were... More

Love that Bahama Bistro is open on Mondays especially since so many restaurants are closed. Not had a bad meal here . . . very attentive service, great food selection. And the mahi mahi is GREAT as entree or in their equally awesome fish tacos. Cute atmosphere too! Love BB!

This is a MUST try place! The Mahi Mahi sandwich, the scrumptious shrimp sandwich, the grilled asparagus and shrimp salad!! Oh, and the lobster bisque. I'm sure all other items on their menu are just as good as these and these are just to die for, Service is always to perfection!

Nothing is worth waiting that long for. 4 sandwiches and 2 salads almost 45 minutes wait. Granted they were busy but food came out sporadically and they were closing before the last lunch was served. No rush but felt like we had to eat and get out! Hire more help! Your food is good but to stay in business you... More

The food was good and so was the service. I almost didn't go in because there was no one else there. I'm still confused by that part, it was a holiday weekend, the food is pretty good, but there wasn't anyone there... Just seems odd. I was just a bit cranky because it was after 11, I was having coffee... More
