We recently have moved to Clearwater a month ago from Jacksonville, FL. We live about 2.5 miles from this place & we decided to check out it out.I didn’t get a picture of everything but we got:Firecracker Shrimp (appetizer)Fried Grouper Sandwhich w fries and coslawFried Shrimp with Fries & Parmesan Mashed Potatoes (pictured)2 Bahama Mama2 for 1 Rumba Island Signature Libation(pictured; I like fruity drinks & this was right up my alley AND the 2 for 1, couldnt beat that, at all!)I would like to say, the service was fast! We didn’t have to wait long for our appetizer & drinks. Our meals took a bit more time, which wasn’t a problem since the wait wasn’t even long. Even though my husband said no tomatoes & no coslaw, it wasn’t enough to make a fuss about it.Our food was cooked & sent out ASAP from how fresh & HOT the fries were, my shrimp wasn’t soggy or over cooked either you could they weren’t sitting under the heating lamp for long at all.I would definitely go back, just for the drinks alone! I highly recommend this place! We will definitely be back!


Great food, great service - nice, island atmosphere. Have never had to wait for a table, although it is always busy. A great place to take guests to the city.

Stumbled on Rumba via Google search driving through the area. SO GLAD WE DID! Friendly hostesses & wait staff. Ordered cocktail shrimp (the free mama's muffins were a huge hit by entire table), stuffed grouper w/ coconut rice DELICIOUS, jerk chicken was spicy (as expected) but juicy, pineapple chicken was great too. Portions are large and price was way better than the beach restaurants in Madeira area. Would have given 5 stars if not for long wait time for food to come out. We guessed its maybe like every other place during Covid, seemed a bit understaffed. Overall, Well worth the 15 min drive for us from our resort. Loved the old Florida vibe, had indoor & outdoor seating. Both are beautiful & relaxing. Dont miss out if in the area. It's been our fav dinner so far!


The food at Rumba was amazing! Our server, Savanna was wonderful! She took great care of us, very friendly and helpful. We'll definitely be back. The manager, Jordan was very informative and checked on us more than once. Will recommend to friends.


Have been to Rumbas for years. Place always has great food! From the apps to the entrees. Great flavors and creative dishes. Drinks are strong with cheap prices. Overall check average is great. Service tonight from Kimberly was on point and a very nice person. Pre bussing is one of my biggest pet peeves and she does it all! GREAT JOB!


We had a party of 16 - first thought is that it could be a disaster...boy was I very pleasantly surprised - it could not have been better! Our server, SAVANNA - was unbelievable. Everything was done correctly...the food was prepared perfectly and all with a smile and great personality. Going back (maybe not with a big croud - definitely ask for Savanna - the best! BTW - the food was great...Hogfish is their specialty!


Going here since we moved to FL, very popular. Music was outside & sounded good, we chose inside for a/c & padded booth. Dawn came over w/those excellent Mama Maria muffins w/cinnamon sugar. I had Rumba salad, 1 of their BEST, hubby had meatloaf sandwich w/add-on mashed sweet potatoes. Dessert was the superb coconut cake w/vanilla ice cream. Vibe is a bit noisy but fun, very bright & pretty & popular & packed parking!


Our last evening in Clearwater, my family and I (10 total) visited Rumba Island Bar & Grill. When we arrived, the place was packed, and we were told there would be a 45-minute wait. However, 22 minutes later we were being seated. We had a wide variety of drinks, appetizers and meals. We ordered everything from pastas to seafood. Everything was excellent! The meals were prepared and seasoned to perfection. Our experience was made even better by our waitress, Dawn, who managed to patiently and accurately take all our orders. We had been told prior to our visit here that they had great service. Dawn certainly proved that statement to be correct. We highly recommend this place. On our next visit to Clearwater, we will be back.


Glad We decided to try again!! I had the Collard Green Melt - stupendous absolutely stupendous!!! NEVER had anything like that before!!! Of course the buy one get one drinks helped too! Our waitress was Kayla- and she was great! Will definitely be back.
