Review Comments:
Last night (2.5.2011) my husband and I decide to have a rare date night with our boys spending the weekend with a good friend. Let me be honest and say that Bimini Bob's wasn't our first choice for dinner, however, my husband stated that he heard good things about them. So we gave this restaurant a try. Wish we didn't.

For a Saturday night the place wasn't packed at all which we found very unusual for this type of place along the Gulf Coast. The restaurant has a very relaxing feel and the staff were extremely nice. Not one complaint there at all.

For the menu, it was really hard to choose anything. This is includes alcoholic beverages. Everything on the menu pretty much had mangoes and coconuts. Hubby isn't to big about coconuts and he's allergic to shellfish so they didn't provide him with much of a selection. I had their Seafood Gumbo as an appetizer which actually was pretty good.

For the meal hubby choose their Bootie Bay Jerk Chicken Platter and I had their Crab Claw Platter which was the night's special. For the amount of money we paid for my platter I expected just a little more food. Crab Claws were more like appetizers than a meal and just a tad over cooked with very little flavor. The fries I had were a tad limp and a bit cold. However, the Island Slaw was different but it was good. Hubby wasn't pleased with his meal at all except for the sweet potatoes fries. Those were very good. He stated the jerk chicken had absolutely no spice to it like it should and pretty much tasted like regular grilled chicken.

Although we had wonderful service the food just didn't match the amount of money we paid. We just weren't impressed with this place at all when it comes to the food.
