We are on vacation and I found decent reviews of this place. Due to Covid, we are not eating in restaurants and are doing takeout. We ordered from the gluten sensitive menu which indicated I would get mashed potatoes and broccoli as my sides. There was no place in the online ordering for me to make an extra note of the gluten allergy. So, I called. The first person I talked to put me on hold when I told her why I was calling. She told me that she needed me to talk to the manager. I did. She asked me what I ordered and I told her, but she didn’t ask the name on the order. I told her and she said okay, but I’m pretty sure that she wasn’t really noting it. When my husband came back with the food, there were fries, which looked great, but I couldn’t eat them. If we had been eating in person, not of this would likely have been an issue. It was disappointing. My ribs were delicious and filling, but it still is frustrating when you don’t get what you think you are getting or when people don’t understand your needs.

Was able to order online through “gluten sensitive” so items were marked when ordering. I ordered pretty simple-grilled chicken with citrus butter sauce (that was delicious!), mashed potatoes, and broccoli. We also tried the crab-avocado stack and that was really good! Not many items on the menu but ate here twice and have felt good both times.

The manager was very helpful, personally circled items on the menu that could be made gluten free. The waitress was polite and said she would inform the kitchen staff to take precautions. I had the ribs and broccoli which were both delicious. So far no reaction!

I ate here twice- the first night they were very accommodating and the food was delicious so I went back the next night. Unfortunately my server the second night brought my salad with bread and then when I repeated that I was gluten free she said she “didn’t know much about it” and told me to “just take off the bread”. The manager came over and brought me a new salad but I still got sick. Not worth the risk!

They had a gluten free menu, but for a seafood place I was astonished at how small it was. What we ordered was very good. The waitress seemed annoyed though with our gluten free requirements.

Gf sensitive menu has two items. A salad and a soup. They brought it with bread. They redid it, I wasn’t sick, but not many options and pricey.

Drink menu extensive and margaritas were good. Gf Menu was ridiculously small. Choice of protein with sides the same. They didn’t even offer more than 1 veggie as a side dish, others were potatoes or rice. Had the Steak Oscar. Didn’t come with the sauce like it was supposed to. Mashed potatoes tasted like they were from a box. My husband’s non-gf Tilapia Oscar was nothing special. No reaction but I’d only ever go back for the bar. Nothing but the ceiling fans reminded me of the Bahamas.

They have a gf sensitive menu but the food is bland and boring. There really isn’t any extra effort to make the chicken jerk or give it a nice mango relish. They have so much potential here and it’s simply over priced and bland.

Went here again this month. Had the Baby Back Ribs on the gluten "sensitive" menu, and white rice and green beans. Got GLUTENED this night. I don't have celiac but am very sensitive, and was running to the restroom repeatedly....

I probably will go back, but not order the ribs again....

Food was fairly pedestrian with little flavor, and few GF choices. I had the jumbo lump crab and shrimp tower (an app big enough for a light lunch or dinner), it was fresh and fitting for the atmosphere and a hot summer day. We got there just as half price apps for happy hour had started, so that made it worth it.

Along with what everybody else said the gluten-free menu is very limited however Not only was the manager extremely helpful but explains why half of the menu is essentially gluten free but they can't claim that it is. for instance the bowls & alot of the chicken dishes are fine. unless if your worried about plantains being in the same fryolator, otherwise substitute.

Ask A LOT of questions!!! I ordered off the gluten sensitive menu and specified I had a gluten allergy. When my food came, there was some kind of won ton looking things on top of the Cole slaw. The server I questioned said it was gluten free. I asked the waitress as well, before I ate, and she whisked my plate away. It was NOT GF! No apology, but I didn't get sick with the meal that was returned. The food is good and I have felt GF safer at other locations. But this was pretty concerning.

Terrible place and I will not return. THIS PLACE IS NOT CELIAC FRIENDLY. I am not sure why the previous reviewers would state that. This Bahama Breeze did have a Gluten Sensitive Menu (it is limited), but they do not have a dedicated work space or a dedicated fryer. I ordered my salmon as suggested on the GF menu plus asked my waiter to put an additional warning on my order. Unfortunately I still got sick.

It didn't directly have a GF menu but after we received our drinks, I asked the waitress and she wasn't completely informed but a few moments later; I had a manager there going through each page of the menu explaining what I can eat and what I can't eat and why. He as well very open and wanted to hear my questions as little they were. Half way through the meal, he came and checked on my table. Very sweet and polite staff with delicious food. Overall, it was a very good experience and I would for sure go back.

Our waiter was very helpful. They were able to accomodate us. The options are few because they fry everything in the same fryer. Also, the yellow rice even has gluten in it. 4 stars only because with a few tweaks there could be more options here. They cooked our food in a manner to avoid cross contamination.

I found this restaurant of the FMGF app, but it was difficult for me to tell why Bahama breeze was listed as being Celiac friendly. Upon arrival and asking for a gluten sensitive menu, I was told that they didn't have one. However they would send a manager to the table to identify the gluten-free options. After several minutes no manager came. However the waitress reviewed my options, listing items that clearly were not GF - including the rice bowls. I had the turkey burger and caramelized onions, with a side of fruit and mango sorbet- both were very good. For this restaurant chain to be celiac friendly, they need to do more - clearly identifying the GF options for everyone, staff and those dining who need GF, lots of staff education, and if the manager is supposed to visit the table, they need to do that without excuse.

The restaurant does not have GF menu. Every time that I go I needed to explained the staff and ask for the manager to discussed with him my problem. They always make you feel that you are bother them. I don't think that the restaurant expend time training their staff regarding food allergy. Few choices!

Awful experience. Website doesn't have gluten free menu. It tells you to talk to staff at restaurant. I spoke with manager who gave me a dry chicken and dry fish options. Even their butter has wheat. Ridiculous. All spices are pre mixed. I asked about yuca fries I saw on the menu and the chef told the server that wouldn't work because it was a starch and I couldn't eat starches. What??? I left a comment online and never heard back. I will not be returning.

The manager was very helpful and seemed knowledgeable, but there were painfully few selections. The rice bowls at this location aren't even edible because they use a gluten-containing yellow rice. He did not suggest anything fried as they do not have a separate fryer and cannot prevent cross-contamination. He did say that most other locations still use basmati rice, which more than doubles the available selections. The chicken with cilantro crema was well-prepared and flavorful (albeit salty) and didn't cause any gut problems.
