“Rum Punched!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

A busy, happening place all summer long. The food is excellent and the drinks, some of the best I've had. Part of the secret is fresh squeezed juice, not the lemon/lime juice in the shape of the fruit! Would definitely recommend. Try a pitcher of sangria down by the dock! Best kept secret...the tacos! BBQ ribs and scallop dish are killer! Worth it, but expect a wait, which is ok because you can sip on a fresh cocktail while you wait!

“rumba”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

The food is great, the drinks are wonderfully delicious. Not a perfect score due to the noise level making it difficult to talk to your dining companions especially when it is crowded and a long wait for your
table

“Drinks and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Stopped in Rumba recently for a couple of cocktails. Did not eat but the menu and food I saw looked good. The place was packed if that gives you any indication. Shared a pitcher of the Rum Punch and Rum Sangria. We were split on which we liked best. The Rum Sangria was unlike any I have had before, it was delicious. The bar was a bit crowded with waiting diners. We were able to go out on the beach bulkhead/dock they have out back. Great view with plenty of seats. There was also a shuttle to the sister restaurant Cowfish. For those wishing to travel by sea, there was a pontoon boat shuttling between restaurants as well. The drinks were strong and tasty. The bartender work that night was a bit nasty and completely unfriendly. You'd think she was working in the middle of a one horse town with no way out.

“Great Food and Drinks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

This place is perfect. When you arrive you actually feel like you have escape to the carribean's. They have a beautiful food with fantastic drinks and one of the best tasting ribs and key lime pie.
