Terrible service ! Quite a few of my friends have given them a try. We all agree, slow service, food mediocre, and expensive for what you get. Not sure they'll last through the winter unless something changes dramatically. Not many vacationers here to eat there...More

We have tried to eat here, despite the warning from others. However, despite their hours stating they stay open until 9:00 pm, we have never been able to eat here. They consistently close early. How can you build a business of customers can not count...More

Loved my crabcake sandwich and fruit salad! They couldn't be nicer and I had a great time. Easy going place right across the beach.

We came here after attempting to eat across the street but it had too long of a wait so we were happy to come here and find no wait and only a few tables seated . Should have taken the hint. Our waitress said she...More

We had visited Mombo's once before a few months ago and everything was okay but it took a long time for our orders to come. It's right across the street from the beach and is a small, quaint place. We liked the decor and ambience...More

These folks give new meaning to the term "slow service". Our group, which consisted of 11, arrived promptly at 10:30 a.m. which was the time we made the reservation for. I should point out that the restaurant was by no means crowded. Now, are you...More
