Tuesday visit, 6 pm arrival ...
Parking was non-existent, as the restaurant shares a lot with Olive Garden.
we ended up in the parking garage behind the restaurant.
There is valet, but in that crowded mall-parking-lot environment, I'd never let anyone drive my car.

Firstly, the hostess never should have seated us (4 [over 50] adults) next to a table of 3 whining unsettled, wandering little children. period. saving grace was they were nearly finished with dinner.

our server, Rachel, MADE the dinner ... suggestive selling, during happy hour, patience while we enjoyed our drinks and Habanero wings and Quesadilla.
carefully took our orders always acknowledged the table as she passed, efficiently replaced drinks as needed.

I had the jerk chicken pasta ... it arrived hot and attractive on the plate.
Also, shrimp pasta, fish taco and ribs were ordered at our table.

We were never rushed.
We ordered coffee and were given the menu without the feel that anyone wanted us out.

$90 for the four of us.
I would go back.

What a terrific server we had! He was so friendly, efficient, and helpful. The menu is quite large. The atmosphere is really nice. Different than the usual place like this. There was music, which was a plus. Didn't have any alcoholic drinks, but the food and beverages we had were good. We ordered a chicken salad which was the freshest! The appetizers are excellent.

I had been to the one in the King of Prussia area..and was chomping at the bit to get back to one.. I actually traveled from Westchester NY to this location as it is the closest one.. across the G.W. Bridge. no....won't do that again. This is an attractive restaurant.. and I think it is fairly new. the tables had enough room between them, hardwood.. nice lighting that dimmed as we were there... and a long oval table for a group. Nice. WHile the menu must be the same, I enjoyed my experience much more at the other location. I'm trying to analyze it.. energy? uuummph ? Our waitor, while anxious to please, screwed up a couple of things. not serious. but .. I ordered a blue moon beer in a bottle. and a wine glass. sounds like a simple request. but no..
it comes draft with a slice of what lime? Apparently it is only avail this way. someone should tell him. the first cocktail I ordered with rum, was not available at all. out of something..
I ordered the white sangria, tasty but hardly alcoholic.
we got drinks long after ordering them due to the fact that the waitor wanted to address the issue of my cocktail not being available. My friend was hankering for his wine. they made him wait. The Fried yucca brought as an appetizer was half gone by the time they came.. btw, I don't eat that, but my friends do,..they liked that it wan't greasy but couldn't see the barb/que sauce with it. ok. I had jerk chicken pasta full portion $ 16. and it was enuf to eat and bring home, And split twice. I liked that. my friend had jerk chicken as an entre and liked it too. the little bread strip that came? One of us had one that could dent a car, the other one was soft ( they brought a new one) but both looked better than they tasted. I saw someone with a coconut shrimp appetizer, it looked uninspired and if you've ever been to Bonefish Grill, and had one there, I suspect you'd have been unhappy with this one.
A family was seated next to us with a very unhappy child, and in moments, there was STUFF all over, and they were mopping and cleaning.. finally they relocated them, but not for a while. and until we were a little unhappy.. conversations compromised.. .
how to control that? I guess not their fault. it just was our poor luck.

the menu is interesting and there was soft live Island music in background
Happy Hour and late night here apparently have good prices and discounts on food.. but I suspect they are making their money on the drinks .. don't get excited.. I doubt very much that a person could get get a buzz on here !

Met a few friends at Bahama Breeze. While waiting for them to arrive I had a beer at the bar that was warm at best. A chilled glass goes a long way and would be welcome. The mixed drinks (martinis and fruity drinks) lacked any semblence of alcohol. The food was good but our waiter Wesley was GREAT. Very attentive. He gets 5 stars. Food gets 4 stars. Drinks get 1 star. Overall a nice place to meet friends especially if you are not concerned about consuming drinks.
