This chain tries its hardest to transport you to the Islands

The chain has a top-notch happy hour.

Just about all sit-down chain restaurants have a goal of transporting you to some far-flung locale, be it the South or Tuscany. But few succeed more than Bahama Breeze Island Grille, which through décor, food, and drink sets its customers’ watches to “island time.” Read on for 10 things you didn’t know about this popular chain.

10 Things You Never Knew About Bahama Breeze Island Grille (Slideshow)

The first location of Bahama Breeze opened in March 1996 on International Drive in Orlando; its original name was Bahama Breeze Caribbean Grille. The Caribbean theme proved to be a hit, and today there are about 40 locations scattered throughout the country, mostly in suburban retail districts and neighborhoods that are popular with tourists.

Bahama Breeze is owned by Darden, the Orlando-based restaurant group that also owns Olive Garden, LongHorn Steakhouse, Seasons 52, Eddie V’s, The Capital Grille, and Yard House (it also owned Red Lobster before selling it off in 2014). The chain is a perfect fit for the group’s portfolio and has a unique concept that’s in the enviable position of being synonymous with laid-back fun.

Read on to learn 10 things about Bahama Breeze, from its origins to the best ways to get discounts. From Jamaican jerk chicken to mango glazed redfish and Bahamian seafood chowder (not to mention a full roster of tropical cocktails), its chefs make a real effort to emulate the experience of dining at a real Caribbean restaurant. Yes, that real Caribbean restaurant may be a tourist trap, but it still sounds like one we can get behind.


10 Things You Never Knew About Bahama Breeze Island Grille - Recipes

My husband and I decided to walk to a restaurant near where we where staying. We decided to try Bahama Breeze Island Grill Wesley Chapel FL. Mason K was our server, what a great guy. He explained the menu and specials. He was very tentative to us. Not Over tentative BUT a great server. We haven’t settees our Bill, for we are still here enjoying ourselves. If your around this area, stop in and ask for Mason K. He won’t disappoint you.

We visited Wednesday for lunch. Nick was our server and he was amazing!! So, we went back Thursday night for dinner. Alexis was our server and she was amazing as well!! The food was delicious and drinks were great too!

While visiting friends in Florida we were down at the Tampa Premium Outlets and noticed that there was a Bahama Breeze. The lady were were visiting said that they've been to the one in Tampa before and it was really good, so we went. They weren't busy at all, but we still had to wait for a seat due to Covid-19, which none of us understood as there were plenty of empty tables not around anyone. I don't know if they were short staffed or what the problem was. The guy we were with ordered a Bud Light, when it came out his glass wasn't even cold and it was flat. He then ordered a different kind of beer and the manager brought it to him. Glass was still warm and beer was still flat. We told him to say something else, but he was afraid something would happen to his food. We ordered the Jerk chicken sandwich. Both of them were extremely dry and overcooked. To say that we were less than impressed would be an understatement. We still have money left on a gift card, so we will eventually make our way back to another Bahama Breeze, but it won't be this one.

I took my dad out to eat at one of our favorite restaurants on Father's Day just after this location re-opened in June 2020. We did not realize they literally just opened their doors again but what was extremely disappointing was not how limited their menu was, but the fact that they did not inform you of how limited it was.

There was only 1 type of fish available (salmon), one way no lemongrass seafood bowl and NO BEER! There were a handful of domestic options for beers, but no Aruba red (their specialty) or Golden Ale.

I understand Covid-19, but it would have been nice to know how extremely limited the menu was. The staff was superb and it was clean but it would have been nice to know about the limitations, up front.

This was our first time dining here and we were really looking forward to it. Everything seem to start out ok. We were greeted nicely and seated right away since we had reservations. Dining room had limited seating because of social distancing, so it wasn’t packed.

The first issue came when we were served sodas. The sodas for my son & spouse were flat and we asked for new ones, They were immediately replaced, but eventually asked for a different flavor of soda because the Dr, Pepper just wasn’t right. Appetizers were tasty— empanadas (Highly recommended) and spinach-artichoke dip (just ok, you can get better at Publix).

Then we waited for lunch. and waited. and waited. We noticed that another family that came in after us ordered, ate and left before we got our food. Since we were visiting with a family member from out of town, we didn’t mind too much because we just had more time to chat. In fact, we were having a good time chatting away and enjoying the atmosphere. When The food finally came, I mentioned something to the waitress about it taking awhile, she copped a bit of an attitude followed by excuses (we were all a bit taken aback by it). I’ve worked in customer service for 30 years and the condescending response and look we got from the waitress was so off putting and unacceptable.

The icing on the cake was that our food was cold and subpar. Black beans & rice were room temperature cold, plantains cold, grilled mahi tacos were cold and the fish meat was hard, husband’s burger flavorless. We were so “done” with the place, we pretty much paid the bill and left. If they had desserts there, we never knew, because not once were we asked if we wanted desserts. Additionally, not once did a manager walk by and asked how our meal was. Is this the new norm during social distancing?

I really looked forward to this place and celebrating Father’s Day with my spouse and family. We will not be back nor will we recommend this place to anyone. I’d rather take my business and 20% tip elsewhere

We visited Wednesday for lunch. Nick was our server and he was amazing!! So, we went back Thursday night for dinner. Alexis was our server and she was amazing as well!! The food was delicious and drinks were great too!

While visiting friends in Florida we were down at the Tampa Premium Outlets and noticed that there was a Bahama Breeze. The lady were were visiting said that they've been to the one in Tampa before and it was really good, so we went. They weren't busy at all, but we still had to wait for a seat due to Covid-19, which none of us understood as there were plenty of empty tables not around anyone. I don't know if they were short staffed or what the problem was. The guy we were with ordered a Bud Light, when it came out his glass wasn't even cold and it was flat. He then ordered a different kind of beer and the manager brought it to him. Glass was still warm and beer was still flat. We told him to say something else, but he was afraid something would happen to his food. We ordered the Jerk chicken sandwich. Both of them were extremely dry and overcooked. To say that we were less than impressed would be an understatement. We still have money left on a gift card, so we will eventually make our way back to another Bahama Breeze, but it won't be this one.

I took my dad out to eat at one of our favorite restaurants on Father's Day just after this location re-opened in June 2020. We did not realize they literally just opened their doors again but what was extremely disappointing was not how limited their menu was, but the fact that they did not inform you of how limited it was.

There was only 1 type of fish available (salmon), one way no lemongrass seafood bowl and NO BEER! There were a handful of domestic options for beers, but no Aruba red (their specialty) or Golden Ale.

I understand Covid-19, but it would have been nice to know how extremely limited the menu was. The staff was superb and it was clean but it would have been nice to know about the limitations, up front.

This was our first time dining here and we were really looking forward to it. Everything seem to start out ok. We were greeted nicely and seated right away since we had reservations. Dining room had limited seating because of social distancing, so it wasn’t packed.

The first issue came when we were served sodas. The sodas for my son & spouse were flat and we asked for new ones, They were immediately replaced, but eventually asked for a different flavor of soda because the Dr, Pepper just wasn’t right. Appetizers were tasty— empanadas (Highly recommended) and spinach-artichoke dip (just ok, you can get better at Publix).

Then we waited for lunch. and waited. and waited. We noticed that another family that came in after us ordered, ate and left before we got our food. Since we were visiting with a family member from out of town, we didn’t mind too much because we just had more time to chat. In fact, we were having a good time chatting away and enjoying the atmosphere. When The food finally came, I mentioned something to the waitress about it taking awhile, she copped a bit of an attitude followed by excuses (we were all a bit taken aback by it). I’ve worked in customer service for 30 years and the condescending response and look we got from the waitress was so off putting and unacceptable.

The icing on the cake was that our food was cold and subpar. Black beans & rice were room temperature cold, plantains cold, grilled mahi tacos were cold and the fish meat was hard, husband’s burger flavorless. We were so “done” with the place, we pretty much paid the bill and left. If they had desserts there, we never knew, because not once were we asked if we wanted desserts. Additionally, not once did a manager walk by and asked how our meal was. Is this the new norm during social distancing?

I really looked forward to this place and celebrating Father’s Day with my spouse and family. We will not be back nor will we recommend this place to anyone. I’d rather take my business and 20% tip elsewhere

My husband and I decided to walk to a restaurant near where we where staying. We decided to try Bahama Breeze Island Grill Wesley Chapel FL. Mason K was our server, what a great guy. He explained the menu and specials. He was very tentative to us. Not Over tentative BUT a great server. We haven’t settees our Bill, for we are still here enjoying ourselves. If your around this area, stop in and ask for Mason K. He won’t disappoint you.
