    Ordered Mahi Mahi entree. The pineapple salsa was by far the most interesting part of the dish. The fish was cooked well and nicely seasoned, but it wasn't anything exceptional. The coconut rice was creamy, but a bit bland. More of the pineapple salsa would have brightened things up. The truffle mac and cheese was fine. Nice texture. Hummus Duo had delicious fresh naan bread. Service was nice, but not exceptional. Pricey for the level of food, but not terrible. Nice dinner, just not particularly memorable.

    Wife and I went with another couple, very friendly staff, and really nice ambience. Food was subpar, very enticing, descriptions in the menu. Had the black Angus ribeye, but it was tough and thin, almost no marbling. Ordered a lobster tail to accompany the steak, but it was late coming out, and when it did, was very undercooked, and had to send it back. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive, however. Would go back, but with lower expectations on food quality.

    Disappointed!! Was looking forward to the Lobster Mac&Cheese, but it was very disappointing. Way too Salty, Orange cheese, long, curly pasta— cheap cheese and pasta! The Ribeye steak was good, but again-way too much salt. Baked Oysters were mushy and bland, the Asparagus was almost raw. The key lime pie was very good!! The service was good, but I don’t think she took the Lobster Mac off the check. she just didn’t respond or appear to believe me that it wasn’t good. The giant fish tank was pretty and added to the ambience, but I won’t be back. There’s other nearby restaurants with far better food!

    We were in St. Pete beach in Florida, on a vacation to celebrate our anniversary. Since we were staying at Rum Fish Beach Resort, where else we would dine than the restaurant recommended to us in the parking lot, RumFish Grille. The food was okay, nothing that wowed us or made us want to give a rave review. It was only a good dinner. My entrée description said it has roasted cauliflower and I was disappointed to count only three tiny florets of cauliflower in the pile of bland lentils, so I was displeased with my entree just from the looks of it and the five scallops I received were very small and not very well seasoned. The server recognized it was our anniversary but nothing special nor a celebratory dessert/drink. The fish tank in the wall was really the highlight of the night as it had a giant stingray which put a big smile on my kids face and that made the night.

    I ate at RumFish a few times around five years ago. At that time the food was excellent, the atmosphere was vibrant and service was very professional. It was special when Guy Harvey was present and would chat with guests at the table and ensure everything was satisfying. The food was above and beyond back then. Unfortunately, it is now below average. The steak was tough, the lobster was not fresh. I would never return to this restaurant and would never recommend it.

    It has been several years since I last visited Rumfish and I was disappointed. The ambience is good but the quality of the food was not as good as expected and overpriced. The service however was excellent.

    We were seated prompty. Unfortunately there was a very, very large party that took the entire area by the fish tank. This party was very loud. Food was good. Service was good. Did not care for the farrow rosoto but it was prompty replaced with another item by the server.

    The reservation gave us a good table but I ordered a cocktail to have before dinner and it arrived after the 1st course. Waitress was great and replaced it with a glass of wine. Spicy blue crab bisque was very salty, calamari was good, salad just ok. Aquarium not as large as I expected from online photos

    The food and atmosphere were absolutely fantastic. Even though we were seated a row over from the fish, we could still see the amazing tank from our booth and got a chance to explore the three tanks they have while waiting for our food. I highly recommend the jalapeño oysters and the calamari--unlike other calamari I've had, this wasn't chewy at all but perfectly fried so each bite was nice and soft!

    Felt a little run down. The light on our table wasn’t working. My husband had to fix it to turn it on. Half our menus weren’t lighting up. Our waitress was lovely, but the whole service was slow. We had to send our soup back. The plates were warm, but the soup was cold. They brought new soup out that was the same temperature in a cold bowl. Not worth sending back again. Ambiance was so so. Won’t be coming back as it wasn’t worth the price.

    Brought my two grandkids in there very well behaved. They wanted to stick us in a corner where they couldn’t even see the fish tank. I requested anywhere out in the open. I understood I couldn’t get close. She said that was my reserve table but yet I’m told I can’t reserve . There is a booth right next to ours that would’ve been perfect. We still we’re OK where we were after we requested to speak to a manager not sit in the corner So then a couple were seated right there in the whole two hours we were there the table was empty probably after the first 30 minutes, which is right next to us but closer to the fish tank . so over all we been coming to you guys for years and I don’t know if I’ll be coming back, except for the fish tank not impressed anymore.

    The food was incredible. We all had a different fish (grouper, halibut, and tuna) and were blown away. The calamari was delectable and the oysters were perfect. Our waitress was amazing, patient and kind, and the bartender before dinner was helpful, funny, and so down to earth. We are so glad we took our mom here for Christmas dinner and will definitely be visiting again!

    Absolutely the worst meal. The 14 oz rib eye was the size of a hamburger, over cooked and pitiful for any price. The sauce for the cauliflower steak was terrible. It cost me $300.00 for the worst meal of the year.
