They do have a limited (I ate lunch here) GF menu. The staff was friendly and worked to give me a GF lunch but didn’t seem very knowledgeable about gluten.

Great gluten free menu! I did not get sick. Salmon, mashed potatoes, and broccoli was so delicious!

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.

The manager couldn’t confirm that ANYTHING could be made GF so we left. If I could give 0 stars I would.

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.

Great Baby Back Rack with mashed potatoes. They can alter some other dishes too to make them gluten free. Great service.

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....

Had limited gf menu. Chose the chicken and vegetable soup. It was good except salty. Service was very slow. The restaurant was only half full.

Want to like this place bc of the great atmosphere and drinks but would not recommend for celiac/strong sensitivity. Menu is “gluten sensitive” and server did not seem super knowledgeable. Been sick all day 🤢

Very friendly and knowledgeable about their gluten-free menu. I ordered the Grill Chicken with mashed potatoes and broccoli. The meal was seasoned very well. No sickness for me!

THE WORST EXPERIENCE!!! They have nothing gluten free. Even their rice has gluten in it. The chef made me a steak and a baked potato but I had to wait so long to get it that my friends were done by the time it came.

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.

They now have a gluten free menu. Is very limited, but at least they're trying to be considerate and the kitchen manager stated that they are very careful and hyper aware. Very accommodating.

Got a burger without bun, telling them it was because I was gluten-free. They put a sauce on it plus onion straws on my plate, neither of which was listed on the menu!

Our waiter wasn't sure about gluten free options. However, the manager came over and spoke me through my options, and was extremely knowledgeable about cross-contamination. I had a steak with mashed potato which was delicious and I felt fine afterwards.

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.

No onsite gluten-free menu, however the staff is wonderful at heloing you figure out what you can eat. pretty much anything grilled is a good choice.

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.

Waiter was extremely accomodating and went above and beyond. He spoke with chef to make sure no cross contamination. They don't have GF menu but were very willing to make adjustments

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 staff is very knowledgeable of items on the menu that do not contain gluten. I was so impressed that we came 2 nights in a row. Definitely worth the money! I will be back!!

Tilapia was very yummy. Combination of spices and herbs make for appatizing dishes. Sort of difficult to find anything GF though

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.

The manager was so helpful and attentive. Even when something seemed gf he checked the recipes for us. And when our plates came the server announced "this is the gluten free shrimp creole" which I always love because its one less moment of anxiety of - could they have possibly switched my plate? Overall, there's not a lot on the menu as is, but plenty of thing can be modified to be gf and they are happy help!

I was excited to try this restaurant based on other reviews but I was extremely disappointed. Although the manager came over to discuss gluten free options, the options are extremely limited. The only options that were suggested as gluten free were two chicken dishes and the fish specials without sauces. I asked about their salads and the cook did not recommend them. So rather safe than sorry I ordered one of the recommended chicken dishes with the recommended side of garlic mashed potatoes. The meal was just ok and I have not been able to be far from the toilet since. I would not recommend this place. I am sorry.

Chef came to my table to explain all gluten free options. I had mahi mahi tacos in a lettuce wrap. It was delicious and I didn't get sick! I also had a drink with triple olive vodka, which is the first drink w vodka ice had since going gf. Wish they'd just make a separate gf menu, which is the only reason I'm not giving them 5 stars. Really great!!

Although they don't have a dedicated gluten-free menu, the manager was very helpful and knowledgeable about the difference between Celiac and intolerance as well as cross-contamination. She helped me choose dishes that were delicious and GF! Just wish they had a listing or separate menu - the only reason they got 4 stars instead of 5!
