The hostess Gina, was extremely rude and very unprofessional. She was yelling at my husband when he questioned why, if we had reservations on open table, we had to wait an hour to be seated. She said open table over books and that’s not her problem. Then she told us we had to wait outside (we had a party of 6) for our table as per the CDC guidelines. We said that wasn’t true. There are no such guidelines in place and we refused to vacate the waiting area as our daughter and 5 year old granddaughter has sever allergies. We all had masks and social distanced. The manager came over to us and told us there was no problem with us waiting inside and agreed there were no such guidelines in place to wait outside. He apologized several times for Gina’s behavior as he acknowledged how wrong she was. He offered to accommodate us by giving free appetizers but we refused. We wanted to pay for our food, we just requested something be done with his hostess

This restaurant is a good spot to dine, but lately they do not play live music, and on a very a warm day / early evening (70+ degrees) the outside seating was completely sealed off. There was NO open air seating, but that wasn’t indicated on the Open Table / Online info.

Always a great meal and great service. The staff is always friendly. The food is delicious and you cant beat their Happy Hour with half-price apps and half price cocktails and their special Drink of the Month. We love Bahama Breeze we eat here at least once a week.

The waitress was great. She ran the whole patio section herself and didn’t miss a beat with keeping her customers happy. She always smiled and got you whatever you requested quickly. Kudos to Joyce who handled the busy patio with Grace and a smile.

I had a reservation for inside but was seated in the heated outside area. I specifically made the reservation for inside because I have a 5 month old baby . Even though the area is heated it is not ideal for a baby. The hostess was not very friendly and said there no other tables available. What's the point of making a reservation then?

The food and service was very good but the music was too loud and we had trouble having a business discussion. It seemed as if the music was at a normal level if the space was at full occupancy.

Typical chain restaurant. Food was mediocre, inexpensive, rushed meal. Apps came out and a minute later entrees were brought to the table. Ok for a last minute meal.

took my two elderly cousins here for a early New Years Eve supper. so far as I could see all covid restrictions were adhered to, the food was good , the service a bit slow, but I doubt that it was the servers fault. Been here many timesand it's agood place to go when you want a confirmed reservations. i had a half a rack of ribs, one cousin the salmon and the other the new combo of steak and coconut shrimp. We started with the habenaro wings which were milder than we expected.

We were introduced to Bahama Breeze when we lived in King of Prussia PA. We saw the Tom’s River location when we were Christmas Shopping. The food and atmosphere are almost exact to the King of Prussia. Great restaurant.

My Tequila Glazed Salmon with mashed sweet potatoes, and green beans, and my husband’s Seared (Mahi-mahi) Tacos with salad were very delicious! My husband loved his Aruba Red beer and I really enjoyed my Bahamarita virgin drink. Our friends loved their choices as well. This was our 2nd time during our visit to the area, since the food was so good the night before!
