BB Welcome

How I heard of this place: Bahama Breeze seems to exist anywhere one might also find a shopping mall or shopping center. This establishment is no different, finding its home overlooking the King of Prussia mall.

Type of cuisine: At Bahama Breeze you’ll find all of your favorites: seafood, chicken and steak, inspired by the flavorful and colorful ingredients of the islands. One bite of our Jerk Chicken Pasta, Baby Back Ribs or Seafood Paella and you’ll be transported to a sun-warmed island where the sand under your feet is soft, and the breeze against your face is cool. And that refreshing Bahamarita? It’s got your name all over it.” Caribbean-inspired cuisine set to very Americanized tastes and corporate food standards.

BB Kitchen & Trees

Ambiance: A laid-back, no worries atmosphere with island flair: a tall tin roof, hosting ceiling fans and exposed wooden framework under the large A-frame. Spaces are set apart to each side after entering – and awaiting your beeper’s buzz – in the cafe lobby. Cozy couches and wicker seats keep patrons at bay in the dim-lit space, as they await their turn to sit at tables and in booths throughout the restaurant. To the left, a rounded gazebo-style structure, windows on all sides, looking out over…a parking lot and the King of Prussia, with images of beaches, palm trees and white sand swimming around in your head. More seating at the bar, including tables with tall, wooden, backed stools, as well as immediately ahead of the expansive corner kitchen, complete with wood-fire brick oven and stainless steel appliances. The music overhead plays tracks from the 80s, just loud enough to hear and create nostalgia without being solely a monologue for all to hear. After a two-hour wait, we were escorted to the bar, to be seated at the tall table.

What I ordered: A two-hour wait after a full day of fasting made it hard to narrow our options down to one entree, each. We enjoyed a handful of appetizers for the table to share: Coconut Shrimp ($8.99) – large, crispy, fanned shrimp served with a citrus-mustard sauce;

Chicken Empanadas – handmade pastries filled with savory chicken and potatoes, served alongside a corn & black bean salad and a mini ramekin of sour cream;

Caesar Salad ($2 .49 if ordered in conjunction with an entree) – crisp romaine, classic Caesar dressing, croutons and Parmesan cheese.

For our main entrees, my uncle and I each partook of the establishments most popular meal, Jerk Chicken Pasta ($) – sliced jerk chicken breast, fresh asparagus and mushrooms tossed in a Parmesan cream sauce with bow-tie pasta.

We had one order for the Grilled Chicken with Cilantro-Crema ($13.79) – two, grilled chicken breasts served with hand-mashed potatoes and roasted corn topped with a blend of three melted cheeses drizzled with a cilantro-crema sauce.

Two selected the Baby Back Ribs ($19.99 each) glazed with the Bahama Breeze signature sweet and smokey barbecue sauce, served with French fries (or substituted for mashed potatoes).

My aunt, a registered dietician for over thirty years selected the the Jumbo Lump Crab Stack ($12.79) for her main entree – premium jumbo lump crabmeat stacked high with chilled shrimp, avocado and apple-mango salsa.

What I loved: My favorites of the evening: the appetizers, including the Caesar salad and chicken empanadas, followed by the coconut shrimp.

Why I loved it: Simple meals, large portions, mixing the beautiful energy of friends and family.

Cost: Average ($8.99 – $19.99 per entree)
