We enjoyed our meal at Rum Fish. The food was good and the aquariums are fabulous. The best part of our meal were the food, drinks, hostess, shopping and atmosphere.
The only disappointing thing, was the waiter was a little short tempered. It didnt ruin our experience but it shock both my husband and I. Some may have been more put out by his attitude. He was nicer towards the end but his first impression remains.

Very often when a place opens with lost of buzz about the decor, the food is an after thought. Not so with Rumfish. Not only is the restaurant beautiful, but the food is fantastic also.
All of the aquariums that got famous from the TV show, "Tanked" surround the restaurant. The service is excellent with attentive waitstaff that provide you with enough attention without "hovering".
i started with the Ceviche appetizer which was ample chunks of fish and shrimp in a delicious marinade. For the main course I had the seafood ravioli in pesto cream sauce which was out of this world.
Compared to other places in the area, the prices are quite reasonable for what you get.
I can't wait to go back again !

Fantastic experience!!! Food and service were perfect. The atmosphere is the most unique and fun in all of Tampa Bay and maybe in Florida as a whole. The fish tanks are unbelievable and the entertainment was great. Love Aaron and Paul. Took my kids on a tour and explained all about the fish.

We had high hopes for this restaurant-- made a booking for twenty of us. However, it was actually our most disappointing meal-- mediocre at best. The guys did like their Grouper, and the crab bisque was delicious. But the bar drinks not as good as Postcard Inn-- something seemed off about their cocktail concoctions-- not the right mixing. Also, the iceburg salad was terrible-- our table got three of them that were inedible-- the blue cheese dressing was a vinegrette with blue cheese that was so bad. My daughter got the flatbread that came out ice cold. I asked the waitress to take it back, but she never did. At the end, she gave me a bad time about taking it off the bill because the guys ate part of it (mainly because it stayed on table and their meals came out thirty minutes late). I nicely told her that I still had to go find food for my daughter since the flatbread was awful and it wasn't my fault that it remained on the table.

Truly, fighting with me over a $14 charge when our table spent over $800 ruined my evening. I wish I could have taken back the gratuity that was automatically charged but I understand that waitresses work hard and her poor behavior at end does not negate the fact that she did serve us all evening (though food came out erratically and she didn't smile once).

We had much better luck at the local restaurants-- charming service at Skidders, 1200 chophouse and the Postcard Inn-- next time we will skip this restaurant all-together!

My experience at Guy Harvey RumFish Grill was great! The atmosphere was great and the food was terrific. I loved the salt water tank in the restaurant - well maintained and lots of colorful fish. I will definitely go back to this restaurant next time I am in town.
