Good seafood is very hard to find. After a visit to Bimini Twist, that assertion still stands. I had mussels in a red sauce that was ~$26 and they were, meh. My wife had crab cakes, that were ok. Nothing was particularly wrong with the food, but it was uninspired and not worth the price. Based on the crowds and difficulty in getting a reservation, it's probably best to let others go ahead and enjoy it.

Bimini Twist has been one of my favorites for well over 10 years, but in recent years it has gotten so painfully loud in the restaurant that I want to just finish the meal and leave. How loud? Loud enough that one needs to shout to be heard across the table. Then, as more and more people shout to be heard, the noise grows exponentially.

Disappointed that my boyfriend didn’t get a birthday song. All that happened was that the waitress brought a piece of cake with a candle, but no song, no big call out. Very low key which wasn’t what I’d wanted for him. I wanted him to feel special and recognized.

Good food — wasn’t amazing but just good.
Slightly overpriced for the quality but overall good.
I let them know ahead of time that we were celebrating a special occasion and the waiter barley made a vague mention of it when he approached the table. The manager never even came over to congratulate her. That was disappointing.

We were a party of five and every one of us said the food was amazing as was our server. The only complaint is that we were seated in a booth next to the bar and it was a noisy spot. It was hard for our party of 5 to converse with the background noise. Next time a seat away from the bar and the experience will be perfect.

We had a 5:00 reservation and we did not have to wait to be seated. We went for the 5-6 earlybird, which is 20% off most things on the menu. It's not smaller plates it's the regular size. It just has to be ordered before 6 so it can be put in the computers for the 20% off. Being we never was there before our waiter, Joey, was very good and explaining everything from the 20% menu to the drink specials. We will be back in town in October so we will go back and ask for Joey.

I was very disappointed with the attitude of the gatekeeper. I arrived on time with two in our party. I told her that the third person in our party was 5 minutes out. I have recently broke my ankle and I needed to sit down, but she would not let us sit at a table until the third person actually showed up. There were several open tables but that did not matter. While we waited, a girl showed up and se was seated immediately. Her party also was not there, but she got her table. I am not sure I will be returning and that is unfortunate because the food is very good. To bad the service is poor.

We had delicious dinners at Bimini Twist this week. My crab cakes and spinach marina were excellent and my husband's fish was very good. Our friends also had the fish and they enjoyed their choices also. Our only complaint was that out of the six guests only five were there at the same time and they wouldn't let us sit down even though we said we would order a drink immediately. Instead, three of us went to the bar while we waited for the last person to arrive. The other two guests just stood by us in a very crowded area.

This was the first time my fiance and I have visited Bimini Twist. We heard good things before and have always seen the amount of cars in the parking lot as we have drives by over the years. So we were pretty excited to give it a try. We had an online reservation and only had to wait about 10 minutes to be seated which is quite understandable. The service from staff was a great team effort, the place looked great, and everything seemed like it would be great. The only problem was that we both were not very found of the food. My fiance and I both got steak and lobster tail specials, and appetizer, and a dessert. The app was typical of any other restaurant serving conch, nothing different. The meal took a while to come out and then when it finally did, everything from the proteins, starch, and veggies were all cold. I very rarely have ever sent food back but I really felt like I had to atleast have my $50 plate of food be atleast warm. The staff was super fast with bring the food back and everything was a great temperature. Only problem is, the steak was extremely dry (I ordered Medium). Instead of sending back again, I just ate my veggies and lobster tail. The dessert we had was good. I'm not sure we would return again, the value for the food just wasn't up to par.

Excellent as always. Arrived at 5 and had reservations for outside. Decided to sit at the bar. It was amazing to see the stream of people arrive. The place was packed by 5:45. We shared a salad recommended by the bartender. We also had a Basil martini and glass ofSonoma Chardonnay. I had the basil salmon and my partner had the filet tenderloins. Both excellent as always. Great vibe, great place. You need a reservation.

As usual we had a lovely dinner at Bimini Twist. My scallop boat was perfect and the salad was fresh and crisp. Everyone enjoyed their food. My husband had the shrimp fra diavolo and gave me one as he was too full. The shrimp were a good size and the fra diavolo sauce was spicy (too spicy for me, but good for him); but they were white shrimp, and I don’t like white shrimp. Pink shrimp, tiger shrimp, red shrimp are all fine; just don’t like the texture of white shrimp.

Our waitress was excellent and had the answer for WHATEVER we asked her. The only negatives (besides the white shrimp) are that a) they don’t have chives or green onion for the baked potato and b) this is the third time I prerequested they have sugar-free dessert and the third time they didn’t have it. I can’t be the only person who can’t eat sugar but would like dessert.

Don't bother making a reservation, we had a 7pm reservation & were seated at 7:35pm. After speaking w/them, we were told "it's always like this". We ordered our meals, and after another 35 minutes it arrived. The food is very good, it's very noisy and the wait staff are super busy and fairly attentive. Will we go back? Probably not.

We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary and couldn’t have had a better time. From drinks at the bar to dining and a special treat from Paulie made the evening memorable. Sorry we didn’t get to see Ralph but of course we will be back as Bimini Twist is one of our favorite dining spots.
