Bahama Breeze Island Grille

Over Thanksgiving Break, we traveled to our hometown of Pittsburgh.  While we were there, my husband's family asked us if we wanted to meet them for dinner at the Bahama Breeze Island Grille in Robinson Township.  Bahama Breeze, which serves Caribbean cuisine, is a restaurant chain owned by Darden Restaurants.  Earlier this year, I had a great meal at Seasons 52, which is also run by Darden.

Bahama Breeze does have a gluten sensitive menu, which has the typical disclaimer I am used to seeing, even at Disney World.  No one is going to guarantee you a gluten free meal, unless it is a 100% gluten free restaurant.  The key for me is that restaurants take appropriate precautions to keep my food safe.  When I started asking my usual round of questions about food preparation, our server said he would get a manager.  The manager I spoke to told me that my food would be prepared in a separate area of the kitchen, and that she would make it herself if I would like.

My meal was delivered to our table by another manager.  I ordered the Steak Oscar, which is an 8-ounce center-cut sirloin topped with jumbo lump crab meat and citrus butter sauce, served with sides of mashed potatoes and broccoli.

My steak was cooked to temperature, and was nice and tender.  It is hard to go wrong when you top a steak with seafood and butter, and my meal at Bahama Breeze did not disappoint.  I was pleasantly surprised at the large portion of crab meat on top of my steak, and it tasted very fresh.  My broccoli was seasoned and cooked well, and my mashed potatoes were good as well.  Overall, I enjoyed my meal at Bahama Breeze, and was really impressed with their customer service.

Bahama Breeze has restaurants in 15 states, and they have 5 locations in Orlando, my former home.  You can view their store locator here.
