There is only one Bahama Breeze in Illinois, and it is part of the Darden (think Olive Garden) group ownership, but don't let either of those items discourage you. The food is just Latin/Cuban enough to be really tasty -- a bit of a spicy kick but not too much. Soups, especially the chowder, are outstanding. We've done both lunch and dinner, mostly with teen grandchildren and their parents. Staff generally is friendly. The one negative is a long wait for food to arrive from the kitchen (the reason for a poor service mark below), but good conversation helps the time pass.

Hadn't been to this restaurant in years. It was a delight. Fresh, light meals with a Caribbean flair.

It is always a good sign when the parking lot is full. We were greeted at the door by one hostess and another met us inside at the desk and ushered us directly to a table. As soon as we were seated a waiter arrived to take a drink order and ask if we desired any appetizers. We ordered beverages which were to our satisfaction with a generous portion. Alcoholic drinks are inspired by the Caribbean. The corn cakes were very tasty and I tried mine with butter and then the salsa that was supplied. MMMMMMMMMM good. The plantain pizza was also very flavorful. The appetizers were almost a meal in themselves. My wild caught alaskan Salmon was as tasty as I have had anywhere in the US. The almond crusting was just perfect. The Mahi-Mahi that others ordered was very good too. The price of the seafood was comparable to what I've paid in other top line restaurants and I would consider the price to be moderate. I was served a very generous portion and was unable to have room for dessert. A real shame as some of the fare sounded very exotic. The location is easy to find, the service is great and it is likely that I will return there in the future.

Good News: Service- Bobby. Excellent. Attentive. Professional. Courteous. Friendly. Efficient. Empathic. Creative. The reason for a mid-point rating above.

Bad News: Ambiance. Dirty fake flowers. Gaudy interior. Limited menu choices. Terrible food (the Creole rice was returned). Uncomfortable booths. Disappointing fish tacos.

A change from burgers, salads an sandwiches.
Great atmosphere, cocktails and seafood offerings for dinner.
Have not tried their generous happy hour offerings, but plan to soon.
