My wife and I stopped in on our way to Key West on Jan 16, 2013. Everything on the menu sounded so good. Both of us were very happy with our menu selections. The server was quite charming and helpful. We are anxious to find other Bahama Breeze on our travels.

Well we tend to stop by either early lunch with full menu in the outside patio. We also love the evening dining again with full menu in the outside patio. The atmosphere , music, the servers like Mike, Antwan or Ariel! They are fabulous. If you are a bar sitting person Nick rules!
This kitchen ROCKS and all new items PLUS ADDING FULL MENU TO THE OUTSIDE SITTING IT ROCKS!
Congrats!!

Sigh, dont know if this was a fluke or our favorite go-to place has gone down the tubes.

Let's start with the fact that we were told, at 7:20pm, that a party of 12 (8 adults, 3 toddlers and 1 baby) would have to wait a full hour to get seated. Ok, a little annoying on a Thursday night but we decide to wait it out. So we waited patiently for an hour and a 20 minutes and we finally went up to the hostess and asked when we could expect to be seated. She told us that we were next and that the table we were waiting for had finished eating and should be leaving soon. We are, mind you, standing/ sitting a few feet away from that table and notice that, even though they've been "finished eating" for a good 15 minutes, several people at that table are now ordering another round of drinks.

We wait patiently another 15 minutes and approach the hostess, commenting that there are several empty tables and that, at this point, with 3 restless and annoyed toddlers, we are willing to sit separately but to please just seat us. We are told that a large party has just left another section and that they are cleaning that table. We continue standing around for another 15 minutes, watching that table sitting there empty with no patrons but a bunch of dirty plates and glasses strewn all over the place and we are now starting to get mad. We finally get seated at around 9:40pm and the manager comes to our table apologizes for the inconvenience and sends a waitress around to get our drink orders. We order mostly waters with one soda and kid drinks, one appetizer, and we ask that they please serve the kid meals first so that the toddlers can start eating. All of that came within 20 minutes, which wasn't great since at this point, our waitress is ONLY taking care of our table AND the restaurant has mostly emptied out, but ok, we should be eating soon. No, no, it was at least another 30 minutes before we began to see our food. Meanwhile, out manager comes around and says, "Well, we got off to a slow start but everything is great now, YES?" I don't think anyone at that table was capable of saying a word at that point. Our waitress came around ONE time to check on refills but that is about it.

Oh, and about the refills, she neglected to mention that the kids drinks did not have free refills so we were shocked to see an extra $6 charge on one of our bills.

Oh, about our bills, she never asked if the checks were separate but assumed they were together and then made a mistake on almost every single bill once she did separate them. We asked that the 18% gratuity be taken off of our bills and were told that they couldn't do that. That not even the manager could do that. Really? Anyways, the manager finally came by and comped us about $5 a piece but to be honest, I don't really want to go back to use MY $5 at this point.

We left the restaurant at 11:30pm, FOUR HOURS later, on a THURSDAY NIGHT...Yes, the food is amazing but oh, so NOT worth the aggravation. Have you ever spent 4 hours at a restaurant with 3 toddlers and one baby???

Bahama Breeze starting today will be open on the outside sitting area starting at 12:30 pm; everyday of the week!! WITH FULL MENU!! We were blown our socks off. Finally we get to enjoy the outdoor area early and able to order lunch specials, regular menu. We recommend this restaurant highly, consistent in great food, service, atmosphere takes you to the Bahamas. New general manager Jeannie LaFever, John Swenson, the Team of servers Mike, Antwann, Ariel, Paul, Arlenis, Arthur G., Nick; they are amazing. Seriously we come so often that we can see changes with the new Chef Cecilia Lucas. Bahama Breeze has been consistently good, but more improved. Like always, for the great food, service, music, atmosphere and prices we will be back! Now even more enjoying the wonderful outside ambiance.
