Sweet little muffins were a great start. We ordered off the early bird menu. Everything else barely hit 3 stars. The coleslaw was very sugary sweet with an odd fruit favor undertone. I had the pulled pork. It looked ok except for the super sugary ketchup poured over the top. It had a fruit undertone as well. Not good. Portions... More

I really love the sit up and atmosphere. I took my assistant here after a rather long and arduous Friday. Our server, Aida, was very warm and personable. She made me glad I stopped here on Gulf to Bay. We order oysters and Ahi Tuna nacho appetizers. Both were excellent. My assistant has a draft and I had a rum... More

I've been here before for lunch with friends and enjoyed the food so decided to go back with my husband for dinner. The atmosphere is a mix of family friendly and bar depending upon where you sit. The seating is comfortable and not crowded at all. I love the different takes on mango/pineapple and other fruit flavors in the meals.... More

Outdoor seating with umbrellas adjacent to outdoor bar. Hostess and all servers were exceptionally nice. Food also was very good. We had the calamari as an appetizer it was... More

I have been to Rumba's many times as I pass by it on my way home from work every day. It is one of my favorite "go to" places to stop for an early supper or happy hour with my hubby and friends. They have a fun ambiance which includes their indoor/outdoor bar and neat island style artwork. The food... More
