Last minute decision to try Rumba's. Had heard it was good but had steered clear of it because of noise and crowded conditions. Surprisingly it wasn't busy and there was no loud music!!! Parking was a hassle as the front and back lots were packed. Had to park WAY OUT BACK and noticed many of the lights on the poles... More

I've been here many times & the food is always very good. The one complaint I have is the water is nasty. It tastes like chemicals. I was there once before & told the waitress & she gave me a soft drink but they never changed the water problem. I would think for being a nice restaurant they would serve... More

Went with some friends after a movie, this restaurant is consistently delicious, especially the grilled oysters, which is a favorite of mine. If you like fresh seafood with a Caribbean touch, this is the place to go. They also offer a great early bird menu if you order before 5:45pm. and nice happy hour specials. Great for an after work...

We stopped in on our way to my sisters house after flying in from philly. We were starving and our server immediately got to us and helped throw an app fried green tomatoes (best I've ever had btw) and got me everything I needed for my baby's dinner (bowl and hot water). Also My daughter never likes talking to waitresses... More

A group of us went for dinner and we thoroughly R joyed it'. Loved the island atmosphere and live music on Friday night. The fish tacos were very authentic with grated cabbage instead of lettuce like some restaurants do. Everyone was pleased with their meals and the server staff was genuinely friendly and helpful!

We go to Rumba at least once a month. We love the indoor-outdoor bar. The food is good. Love the chicken salad and coconut shrimp. Fish spread is good and it's a big portion. Kristy, the bartender is usually our server. She is very friendly and always has a smile on her face. Very attentive too.

As a lover of AC, I was not happy about the setup. The food was nothing special. It was definitely over-crowded. At least there was live music in the background.

Our group of 10 had an early dinner at 5pm. There were drinkers at the bar but no other dining patrons. Our waiter, Greg, was very efficient. From time of ordering till we received our food, it was about 40 minutes: a little long considering there were no other diners, and no one ordered anything exotic. Food was very good.... More
