“Outstanding food, service and atmosphere....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

What a great find I've recently come across.

Having now had two meals at this restaurant, I can say that both visits were excellent experiences marked by wonderful food, excellent, attentive service, and fair pricing.

The first meal was a business related dinner. The meals enjoyed included a cobra special - absolutely outstanding, ratatouies, Caesar salads, a French onion soup, the crab bisque a - literally perfect - filets, and a mixed grill special. Desserts included bread pudding and pecan pie. The bread served was a home made rye bread - soft, fresh, hot, flavorful - simply wonderful.

On one of the occasions they had an excellent saxophonist, who really added to the ambiance.

The execution of the whole experience was fantastic and friendly on both occasions.

Whether you are seeking a good business dinner venue, a nice family meal, or a pleasant date night dinner, seek out this restaurant... It's a winner.

“Highly recommend”

This was our third visit to Rum Fire Grill. We always order something new and we've loved everything so far. The service and atmosphere are great. This is definitely our new favorite place to dine.

“Mediocre meal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013 via mobile

We stopped in for dinner at 8:30 Thursday night and ordered the seafood mix grill special and their rum island pasta special of the day. The pasta was the clear winner but not by much. Although it is located next to the sea, the seafood was less than interesting, much of it was bland and the rice tasted funny, not in a good way. The shrimp was just ok, the crab cake was not flavourful and the fish was also flavourless. The part was the green beans. All that for $60 and just a passing grade. Shame.

“Excellent Both Times”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

Four of us ate there in the evening when we arrived in the area after a long drive. We wanted to eat light, and ended up ordering appetizers, wine and desserts. The wait person was very helpful in making suggestions from the appetizer list. We were all pleased with our selections. We enjoyed the experience so much we returned a few nights later for a "real" dinner. Each of us order a different fish entree, and we were all quite impressed. And we repeated some of the desserts from our first visit. As I recall the desserts are prepared by a relative of the owner. All inn all a nice restaurant and a pleasant experience.

“Good to the last bite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

Please note that this restuarant also did business as Rum Fire Grill; now renamed, but still the same owners. We had dined for lunch here a while ago, but this was our first dinner. Really nice atmosphere- upscale contemporary. Great service from hostess and wait staff. Food was delightful; all the side salads ( spinach, mixed greens and caesar),were tried and found to be very good. Entrees of grouper and salmon were fresh and very well prepared; delicious, of course. An appetizer of coconut shrimp was enormous (enough for an entree) and also quite tasty. Even though we were stuffed, we shared a bread pudding; a huge portion and really wonderful flavor and texture- all desserts are made on site. We will definitely go there again! Not cheap, not expensive but worth the money!
