You gotta go!

This is a great place. Great decor, friendly service, wonderful food. My son got the tuna appetizer which he loved as a big sushi guy, I had the calamari which was fantastic. I'm a chowda-head Bostonian, and I get the chowder wherever I go ( it's the rules). The rockfish New England style chowder... read more

Love this little restaurant. The decor inside has changed (who knew lots of fabric on the ceiling was a fire code hazard?) but the food and great service has not. I love their local spicy and hot (temperature) pick and peel shrimp served with drawn butter and cocktail sauce. Great kids menu with mocktails for the little ones as well.... More

Goombay's is a funky little restaurant/bar that never disappoints us. It has a cool caribbean/ beachy vibe to it and coupled with great food and great service makes it one of our favorite places to eat - with our kids too! A favorite of our kids - ( and us too) are the gator bites appetizers. Absolutely delicious. On this... More

Seemed a bit odd to start that they run the bar and restaurant under separate tabs so we could not have a drink at the bar and then move to the restaurant - however, once we had paid up our bar tab and moved to restaurant, we had a fantastic Jamaican meal with coconut and other Caribbean flavours. Very friendly... More

We love Goombays! The staff is always friendly and personal. The Fish Tacos are the best on the beach in our opinion. The Goombay Smash is truly our favorite drink. The Tuna Oscar dinner is my go to meal for a special celebration. Love Goombays!

Not bad for a happy hour snack and a couple of beers. Definitely off season, so there wasn't much going on. The bartenders were very nice and attentive. Enjoyed the license plates that were tacked up all over the walls. Is probably a pretty cool place to hang out during the summer.

We really enjoyed our lunch here. The fried alligator appetizer was delicious. My wife got the eggs benedict with crab and loved it. I got the steak and cheese sandwich with peppers and onions and it was delicious. And my son got the Katy chicken sandwich with chipotle sauce and cheese and ate the whole thing. Our server was perfect... More

We stopped for a cold beer (but I have eaten here before). Friendly staff and decent food. right across the street from our condo so location is definitely a plus.
