Lobster and Shrimp Linguine – Bahama Breeze

Tossed with mushrooms in a lobster cream sauce, $19.99. Very creamy and very filling. Plenty of small shrimp! Yum.

Mojo-Marinated Pulled Pork consists of slow-roasted pulled pork, served over plantains with sweet and smoky barbecue sauce for $6.99. Very tender, comes with 3 large pieces. The signature sauce is tasty, but you don’t necessarily have to mix/dip. Beautiful and delicious appetizer. Can’t say it’s the best pulled pork I’ve ever had, but it’s pretty good!

Calypso Shrimp Linguine, $13.49, has tons of small shrimp, much like the Lobster and Shrimp Linguine. These 2 dishes are very similar. The difference is that the Calypso Shrimp Linguine is mildly spicy and has tomatoes, making it more red in color than the Lobster and Shrimp Linguine. If you like thick pasta sauce, go for the Lobster and Shrimp; if you like thin pasta sauce (watery), go for the Calypso Shrimp but try to avoid wearing a white shirt and creating red stains all over when you slurp up the noodles!

Bahama Mama – Malibu, Myers’s Dark and Bacardi rums, Banana Liqueur, pineapple and orange juice, a popular drink here. Sweet and tropical, it comes in a giant glass, much like a goblet.

Chocolate Island – very rich and chocolatey! I had such a large meal that I could barely finish this delectable dessert, but I saw many people order this and just had to try it for myself!

Overall, this place is nice to try at least once. Since they offer drinks here, they will kindly assist with finding you a ride back home so you don’t drink and drive. Wide variety of options to choose from, very colorful presentation, and plenty of seating. Half the seating is in a darker area, much like the typical Outback Steakhouse or Chili’s (there’s also a bar in the center), while the other half of seating has glass windows such that you can view the outdoor scene while still dining indoors (there are also large fans and a live band in this area). However, on that note, when my aunt and I arrived, we were initially seated at a large table directly in front of the live band. It’s not very ideal to have music blasting directly into your ears as you try to enjoy dinner. With larger parties, you’ll also end up shouting at each other without any luck of hearing one another as you try to converse. Thus, we asked to be moved, and our waiter did not like this request. We were assigned another waiter (who was very kind) and given another large table for just the 2 of us. At one point, our waiter was nowhere to be seen for the longest time, so we tried to ask the first waiter for a simple request – to have an empty plate so we could share our dishes. He was not extremely busy, yet he refused to help and shortly replied, “I’m not your waiter.” Well, EXCUSE ME. Talk about RUDE! That was the only negative experience. [Upon entering the place, there were also a bunch of waitresses just standing around and not even greeting people as they were arriving, making it confusing for customers – do I sign my name on a wait list or seat myself or…what?? Customer service could definitely use some work.]
