As you walk through the doors of Bahama Breeze, you are greeted by the friendly staff and the aroma of amazing Caribbean and tropical food.

Bahama Breeze offers a large variety of seafood for prices between $11-30. The restaurant is easily seen by people travelling along I-271 and is a large attraction to people of all ages. It offers no limitations to who dines there, offering food for kids and drinks of all kinds for adults.

The restaurant offers a Caribbean feel, with high ceilings and wooden furniture and it is one of the only restaurants in Cleveland that offers sit-down Carribbean food. It offers similar service and dining as Olive Garden, The Cheesecake Factory, or T.G.I. Fridays, although it is very unique by itself.

During dinner on Friday and Saturday nights be prepared to wait 20-30 minutes for a table, but it is worth the wait.

For appetizers- the coconut shrimp is a Bahama Breeze favorite and costs $9.99. It is a plate of about 7-10 crispy shrimp served with a side of citrus-mustard sauce.

Bahama Breeze offers a large variety of main course meals, from burgers, bowls, and sandwiches, to tacos. The Lobster and Shrimp Quesadilla ($9.99) is different from the regular cheese/chicken quesadillas and is served with onions, sweet peppers, spinach, and a side of tomato salsa and sour cream.

The presentation of the dishes is refreshing, and all of the food is served within 10 minutes of being seated. The tortilla is soft and bouncy, and the sour cream and tomato salsa complement the spinach, peppers, and onions exceptionally.

For a more American style meal, the Applewood Bacon & Cheese Burger ($10.79) offers an appetizing alternative, with cheddar cheese, crisp pickle slices, vine-ripened tomato, and lettuce, all on a toasted-brioche bun.

The warm and juicy burger is served with a side of fresh oven cut fries, which accompany the burger with class. The pickle slices and tomato are crisp and and you can still feel the heat from the toasted brioche bun as it is served to you.

The Mahi Mahi Tacos ($19.99) is from a fresh fish selection with green beans and yellow rice, with a choice of many different toppings and is served with a side of mashed potatoes or sweet potatoes.

The appearance and presentation of the Mahi Mahi Tacos is one of the best selection. The tacos lay off one another, displaying the contents beautifully. They are served warm, and the fish is tender.

Sophomore Elizabeth Shneyderman has dined at the restaurant before and especially enjoys the appetizers at the restaurant. She said, “I always drove past [the restaurant] and wondered what kind of food it offered, and was excited when I went for the first time that I loved it! It’s very different from the food I eat on a regular basis.”

Dessert at Bahama Breeze is a must for anyone that visits. Famous desserts are the “Rebecca’s Key Lime Pie” ($6.49) which is handmade with brown sugar crust and golden meringue, along with the “Chocolate Island” ($7.29) which is rich chocolate mousse on a fudge brownie island in chocolate sauce and vanilla bean anglaise. The Key Lime pie is buttery and flavorful, and is presented with whipped cream. The brown sugar crust is perfectly made and tasteful.

Overall, Bahama Breeze offers a fun, exciting night for customers of all ages. They display food of all kinds, seafood and burgers, and their appetizers and desserts are delicious and well presented.
