Bahama Breeze - Gainesville, Florida

I have never heard of this place until it recently opened up in Gainesville. I must say, I was impressed. The place is huge, with high ceilings and tropical looking fans spinning everywhere.
The bar is huge, and has an outdoor patio. The main part of the restaurant is wide open and a fun and pleasant atmosphere. The staff is nice, clean and attentive. The menu is filled with soup, salads, burgers, pork, steak, seafood, chicken, tacos and more. I ordered the Grilled Chicken with Cilantro-Crema. It was very good. I heard the Jerk Chicken pasta is amazing, too. They offer a kids menu, and they keep to the theme of the place 100%. I really recommend going here. It is just fun!
The place is not cheap! It will not break the bank, but it is generally around $10 plus per dish.
 They offer a happy hour, with half priced appetizers. Many good drinks to choose from, as well.

Well worth it! Visit their website at
