Who doesn't LOVE ALL day HAPPY HOUR

Rumba has all day happy hour available. Plus, lunch and early dinner special's. The food is good, the atmosphere fun and comfortable. Not to loud. Nicely decorated venue too. Always seems to be some type of "special" going on be it food, drinks or both. ENJOY

Cute restaurant has outside dinning with heaters. The food is wonderful. I had the Seafood Lafitte which is mahi, shrimp, and crab meat over a bed of rice, topped with Bienville sauce, and parmesan cheese. It is served in a casserole dish that has been baked in the oven to brown the cheese top. Yummy! My friend had the Shrimp... More

We were looking for a place for a quick dinner after a movie and decided to give Rumba a try. This restaurant used to be an asian restaurant and is so beautifully decorated from then. There is also an outside bar for the nice nights. The food is good.....mostly seafood but does offer burgers, etc. I had a grilled mahi... More

Our favorite place for REAL Florida seafood. Appetizers are reasonable and very good. Hogfish is absolutely delicious as well as the Grouper and Mahi Mahi. My wife and I tell everyone this is our favorite restaurant. Great job Rumba you NEVER disappoint!

Have not had the first bad experience there! The hogfish sandwich is really good (and I don't even like fish). Overall, great atmosphere & good food...love their 2 for 1 drinks!

I really enjoyed the food at Rumba's. I had never had hog fish and gave it a try since it was the special of the day. The sandwich was great, the sides good and the price reasonable. The only negative with this restaurant was the road noise.

We were looking for someplace new that we hadn't tried yet. Rumba Island Bar & Grill popped out at us. We weren't sure what to expect but gave it a shot. It was cold out but we sat on the deck anyway as they had heaters going. The live music was a nice touch. We all ordered something new. I... More

The food here is a great value, esp with their early bird special which is in effect till 5:445pm...most of their entrees are btwn $8-11, and they include 2 of their sides. I really enjoyed the collard greens! We had their jalapeño poppers and fried green tomatoes as appetizers...delicious. Their blackened shrimp Caesar salad was great too. They offer 2... More

I took a colleague to lunch here this week. We arrived at roughly 1PM. At night this place is always packed and a real challenge to find seating BUT Monday's lunch business was brisk and the restaurant capacity was below 50% occupied. I'd never eaten here but thought I'd give it a try. My colleague ordered the Rumba salad with... More
