Service was good but the food not so good. Ordered my fav coconut shrimp and it was dry and the sauce very tasteless. Mashed sweet potato, bland and cole slaw, bland. Overall I went back for a great lunch and it was not so great!

Just great, service, atmosphere, food all keeps us coming back. Barry is a server that we keep requesting he is very attentive and helpful remembers our preferences and always has service with a smile and a positive attitude we will keep coming back and requesting him. Keep up the great work, the corn muffins are the best. Salmon croquettes yum!

We have become pretty regular and we have not been disappointed one time. The Onion crusted salmon is addicting, never pass on the corn muffins they are delectable!

We live walking distance and we go for dinner on Sunday nights. Their 2 for 1 drink specials are great and I always get the shrimp bowl with bbq salmon. The wing appetizer is great as a meal too.

Entered Rumba Island Grill expecting to order caribbean food, and was pleasantly surprised to find fried shrimp on the menu, and Alejandro, our waiter, assured they are good and breaded in the kitchen not frozen. I am famished as it has been a good five or six hours since substantial food, so I order fried shrimp with coconut rice and... More

When we sent them back the next ones were also dirty and sent them back! 2 of the orders were wrong. My friend never got her fries. My husband asked for more tea and it took 15... More

Caribeean fare. Lots of dishes with coconut. Equal offerings in numbers of seafood and beef. Lunch/early bird specials including 2 for 1 drinks like sangria. About a dozen beers on tap. Do ask the ingredients in the sides. It seems that sweet bell peppers are treated like salt and pepper....no need to mention. A challenge to locate the entrance. Tight... More
