Good Value, some great dishes

This is definitely a local Oldsmar crowd, older baby boomer group, and they have a crowd going at all times. They have good 2-for-1 on house wines and beer. Some really solid food selections as well

We arrived around 7:00. I wanted the peanut butter, jelly dish. It was not available. I ordered another dish, after about twenty minutes, the waitress came back and said it too was no longer available. I ordered a hamburger. My husband's dinner came out while I had to wait.

Had Sunday lunch. Good choices on menu. Chose fried green tomatoes and Coconut Shrimp. Both were very good. My wife and both had the Seafood Lafitte which had Mahdi, shrimp, crab meat over a bed of rice topped with Bienville sauce and Parmesan. It was very good. Our guest had the Montego Bay half Chicken citrus splash marinade with cranberry... More

We love the food, service and atmosphere at this restaurant, but try to go early due to it's limited parking. If you go at supper time, be sure to wear your walking shoes!

Excellent shrimp quesadilla, rolls, drinks, dinner and conversation! Thanks to our friendly waitress Nevada!! There were some pesky flies due to open air bar area but other than that--all was good! Easy to find, ample parking, friendly staff. We could not hear the live🎤🎶

Service and Atmosphere at bar is good. First time ordering food to go and got ribs and wings. Wings were good but ribs were so fatty couldn't even eat them. Really disappointed Enjoy the outdoor bar but won't be going back for food.

Picked this place based on reviews. They were right on. Took my wife there for Mother's Day dinner. Sat on the patio, which although it is by the parking lot, is still quite nice. Open bar allows the air conditioning to cool the patio. had a guy playing guitar. My wife had the shrimp and I had the Laffite shrimp/crab... More

We go here often, but only a couple of servers have the Service Thing going on at the Bar. We went for dinner recently and had to flag someone down for more drinks, which would only increase their tip if we could get more drinks. Not to mention we got up to get salt etc since the bar staff was... More

I have been to both locations of Rumba, the one in Oldsmar and the one in Clearwater! They both are fantastic! I eat there on numerous occasions and typically try something new every time, every single thing I have ever tried has been phenomenal! Such a good price for the quality of the food!
