El servicio no fue bueno, teniamos que pedirle los cubiertos, y cada cosa. Festejabamos un cumpleaños, a todas las mesas de cumpleaños le regalaban el pastel y le cantaban el feli cumpleaños, a nosotros no nos cantaron y nos cobraron el pastel.
Nos encanta ir a Bahama!! ynos gusta el ambiente, aunque seria bueno que la musica no sea tan alta ya que es muy dificil conversar. Y espremos tener otra mesera la proxima vez.

Dinner with our kids and grandkids was great. Wonderful place to take kids. Food was delicious. We had their new salmon entree and the shrimp, Mahi and lemongrass bowl. Server was great. My only complaint is the hostess desk. This is the second time they have gotten my reservation wrong and tried to seat us at the bar.

This location has excellent food and cocktails, if you can get someone to bring them to you. I am not sure if the wait staff are untrained or understaffed, but on both occassions when I visited, the drinks had to be requested again in order to receive them from the bar. This has now happened 2x a week apart with different servers. The food is great, love the menu, conch fritters are really great, and the mahi & shrimp in lemongrass sauce and the shrimp and grits are both fabulous. Using open table ensures you don't have to wait, and now they have lessened the music around the fire pit outside so outside seating is comfortable.

Service is VERY fast. To compensate, we order appetizers first and wait for them to be finished before ordering entree otherwise we have had our entree delivered before appetizers were finished.
Had to ask for water refill a few times during meal.

It took forever to get my order, the fruit salad was mushy and had ice in it.
This was my 3rd time there, I won’t be going back. 45 minutes for a chicken sandwich is too long.

The atmosphere was fun and Bahama Breeze Oakland Park was a great place to relax. The food was excellent from the appetizers to the dessert. We could not have asked for better service than the service provided to us by Hunter C. We definitely recommend Bahama Breeze.

Great food with extensive menu with many choices. Good service. Only drawback is we asked for outside seating and it is overlooking a major street...not much to look at and a lot of car noises.

For such a big new restaurant, they should have their A game on. Walk in and the host was on the phone, lots of people waiting, no friendly greeting or welcome. Sat outside and noise level was ok but pretty loud, but much better than inside. Service did great us initially (had trainee with her) but food runner brought out 1 of 2 items that was supposed to all be served together as dinner. Took a bit to get a liquor drink and just before food came finally brought out the water we had ordered. Did check back once. Server appeared to care less whether we were there or not. Food was ok, but nothing to immediately draw me back. Overall experience doesn't have me wanting to go back anytime soon. Word in South Florida spreads about bad service so for us locals...good luck.

Tonight we went to eat, my children, my husband and me. It was my idea, I was happy to go to Bahama Breeze, since it was the first time. The place is very nice, the employees are very friendly, but unfortunately in the kitchen they do not take any care in what they send to the table. I ordered some tostones with chicken and on my plate they apparently broke a plate on top of my food and were not careful to make another one and they sent it to my table with those pieces between the food. My husband and son ate and, when we informed the manager, they only took it out of the account. I have a lot of feeling and courage. Of course, we will not be back, but I hope it does not happen again because not all of them are as good clients as we are, that we did not make a scandal and still pay.

Sadly my visit didn't go to well, my friend and I were seated at the same time across a family of 4. Both tables ordered at the time. My friend and I an Island Hopper as an appetizer (we were that hungry). We didn't get any food til the other table got their dessert. Our waiter notice and notify the manager, which was the only good thing but i wish they could of work out the timing better, didn't realize we would wait for an hour for food. This is the only one bad experience but Bahama Breeze is still consider my favorite hang out spot with the squad, especially we all finally don't have to drive all the way to Sawgrass lol.

The best thing about coming here was making a reservation on line so we didn’t have to wait. I highly recommend some Darden upper management come here . The noise level was ridiculous. We had to yell to the server. I felt out of place because I wasn’t wearing a dirty tank top and ball cap! The food was way below average and I’ve eaten in various Bahama locations. My wife ordered “ Key West” fish tacos- it was horrible. So fishy tasting with a heavy odor. Perhaps s better grade of fish other than pollack would work better. It still tasted frozen. My niece ordered kids chicken tenders which were way over cooked. I had the Pulled chicken sandwich that was so dry I could not eat it. We sent the tacos back. No manager bothered to come over. I expected more from a Darden restaurant. Maybe this was my fault.

Cocktails taste like they are a premix that wasn't stirred properly and over sweetened. White wine was served warm. Food was okay, but nothing special. Decor and ambiance were the right level for this style themed restaurant.

Very loud. Waiter was very friendly but could not accommodate our table of 4 in a timely manner. Waters, refills, food issues took forever. Not his fault though. Super loud in there. Medium burger can put well done and then took 20 minutes to get another one made. It was comp’d but not the point.
