We enjoy Bahama Breeze all the time. Service is always on point, food is always fresh and tasty. Happy Hour can't be beat, the appetizers are a meal in themselves. We will continue to be regulars.

Drinks are good if a bit pricey. I am a big fan of the curry goat, which has always been my go to dish at other locations. However, I was a bit disappointed in that it there wasn't much actual curry and too much rice.

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.
