Nicely decorated, live music, great customer service, affordable and fruity drinks, good food. They take reservations. Plenty of parking available, and limited outside seating. Variety menu for everyone. Excellent sauces and dips - best conch fritters anywhere.

The food and service is awesome. The entertainment is always above average and the staff is always super nice. I recommend to anyone local or visiting. It’s close to the stadium, campus, shopping and hospitals and the atmosphere is family oriented. 👍👍

Server was attentive, love the atmosphere and decoration. Great menu choices and drinks. Over all great experience with one exception the potatoe croquette was over done it had a bitter after taste from burning.

Mediocre food is undermined by unbearably loud bad music and frigid air blowing from omnipresent fans. That unpleasant chaos drives clients away

I love Bahama Breeze because of the entertaining atmosphere, delicious food, and great service. On this particular visit, the outside seating was unavailable due to an incoming thunderstorm. However, they closed the “garage doors” making way for weatherproof patio seating. The food is always delicious...More

From I 75 take exit for state road 24/Archer Road east to 2nd traffic light. Then take left on Clarke Butler Blvd. Bahama Breeze is about a mile down on the right hand side of the street.
