The deal was that I spent $10 for a $50 certificate over last Christmas, and if I ate for $100, I could get $50 off. The certificate was not supposed to expire. Guess what, Cabana Room has stopped honoring it because other patrons, or whoever did... More

The Cabana Room is now called Samba Cafe. Unfortunately, not only the name has changed.

Great food, but not a lot of selection. Interesting menu though. Definitely want to try everything there. The Cabana Burger is great, as well as the Cheese, Pesto and Tomato sandwich.
