I was in Lake Buena Vista, Florida a few weeks ago and had to grab a quick business lunch while we waited for a meeting. The hotel area has a Bahama Breeze Island Grille in it, and although it is a chain restaurant, it looked appealing enough to peak my interest.
The interior of Bahama Breeze is a cross between a Chili’s and a darker version of Olive Garden. They offer a variety of food all based on an Island theme, ranging from chicken, steak, and seafood.
I ordered the BBQ salmon which is a filet of salmon topped with BBQ sauce and sided with fried plantains and a sweet potato puree. My food arrived quickly and the plate was quite large, plenty for lunch. The BBQ sauce was a bit on the sweet side but had a lot of flavor to it and paired well with the salmon. The salmon filet was cooked well and tasted fresh.
I really enjoyed the side items as they helped complete the entire experience and worked well together. The food was not out of this world great, but it was good enough and met my expectations. I will not go out of my way to eat at Bahama Breeze, but if I am nearby, I can see going back again in the future.
