A really good place to grab tasty food. I usually come during their happy hour because you can get a lot of food and drinks for half of the price.

The service, ambiance and food was great! My only complaint is that they did not check me in as an OpenTable customer which resulted in a "you did not show up" email. Otherwise, my friends and I will be going back at another time!

The most amazing jerk wings I have ever had. Everyone really enjoyed their food and drinks. I would definitely recommend to friends and I hope to come again.
Our waitress was great, but I think they need someone to specifically bus the tables and handle small requests, like plates for the appetizers. We waited for appetizer plates for almost 10 min. I had gone to the maitre d' stand and requested them before they arrived. Also, our table was only half bused when we were done. My entree plate sat there for 30 min while I was talking to our guests and figuring out the check. It was still there at the time we left. The ambiance would have been "outstanding" if not for that.

We had lunch before a movie matinee. We’re a little rushed for time but server did an excellent job serving us in time. The fish tacos were a little hard to handle without making a mess but were tasty.

My family and always enjoy dining at Bahama Breeze. We've now been to locations in Virginia Beach, Orlando, and Potomac Mills of course. The food and the service was great. And the ability to walk the food off right next door at the mall was awesome!

Food is pretty good and service is always very good. We like that for $2.99 you can get a side salad added to your order. There's a large variety of things to choose from on the menu. This time we ordered the skirt steak churrasco and the jerk chicken pasta. We wanted the steak medium rare, but since the steak is so thin, it came out more medium well. But the flavor was good. We're regulars (we come twice a month or so) and our favorite server waited on us. He's the best.

Steak had no flavor. Mashed potatoes were hard. The tilapia was overcooked and greasy. The ambiance was terrible...rap music was playing loud which isn't what you would expect from an island theme restaurant. The crowd was loud and obnoxious causing arguments with other tables. Kids were slamming doors in the bathrooms with no parents to stop them and management didnt so anything about it. If you're looking for a place to celebrate a special occasion or simply go on a date night, don't go here.

My husband ordered the mahi-mahi bowl. He received a soup with a few items inside and some rice. Service was horrible. Dont know why because we go there often (once a week) and usually pay $115-$125. There has been a few times lately with such poor service. Manager came over and said sorry and that was that. No customer service.

I have to begin by saying that we were a party of 6 on a Saturday evening. The restaurant was crowded - which was expected. However, the service was slower than expected. Two of our party arrived about 5 minutes late, and we had to ask 3 times for them to receive their water glasses. One of the party ordered a mixed drink - and it wasn't until 15 minutes later that it was delivered to the table. Refills were non-existent and not once did anyone ask if our food was ok (thankfully it was!)
We ordered 3 appetizers - conch fritters - yummy, goat cheese and bell pepper dip - mixed reviews, and the guacamole - average. For our entrees - jerk chicken, tequila salmon, ropa vieja tostones, and the fresh-catch salmon. Everyone loved their entrees - except for the fresh-catch which was overcooked.
Although we would have been interested in dessert, none was offered and the check was brought to our table. The bill for 6 of us was a little over $150.

I went for happy hour with a large party. The staff was very accommodating and the service was great. It’s a little pricey for non-happy hour, but hh made this restaurant accessible and affordable. The drinks are fun and the selection of appetizers is good. The ambiance is also fun, very nice space with outdoor options. Would go again

The waiter was nice but was MIA. I understand it was busy but it was ridiculous. Also, we waited for an appetizer only to be told it was no longer available after we got our meal...

We sat outside and the noise level from the musician was too loud. Probably is better to have that kind of music later in the evening maybe starting at 8 p.m and not 7pm. Just a thought as this made it difficult to talk if you wanted to sit outside.

Server Ryan was fantastic and the individual who brought food from kitchen had napkin holding the plate instead of his bare fingers and I love it. Sanitization to its peak 👏👏👏

Food was spicy and very good. I ordered the platter with chicken and pork but after I had eaten half my food I discovered they had left the pork off my plate. The server went to the kitchen and brought me a serving of pork right away and it was delicious. They have a really fun drink menu as well. I had a nice Mother's day dinner. The only complaint I had was with the process of getting seated. We had a reservation for 2 but had to wait a few minutes. While waiting there was a group of 5 or 6 staff members congregating and talking near the hostess station in an already congested area because it was so busy and full of people waiting for a table. When the hostess finally called us up and said our table was ready she just pointed us toward the tables and turned away to talk to the other hostess. We had no idea where we were to go and the staff were all talking in the group and had their backs too us. We stood there for a few minutes just totally confused. Finally a man right in front had been standing there and I thought he was waiting for a table too but when he turned around he was a host and had two menus in his had. Turns out he was supposed to seat us but was busy chatting. Our server was fantastic but the rest of the staff and process of being seated needs some changes.

From the hostess station to the wait staff, our overall experience was sub par. The only employee that I was pleased with, is the young man who sat us at our table, and whom was more than happy to give us some items that we needed (plates, napkins) when our server was unavailable. We were there to celebrate Mother’s Day, however the restaurant wasn’t extremely busy, so the poor service was due to an apparent lack of training rather than the restaurant being too busy. I was extremely disappointed, and will likely not return.
