Having a captured audience on Palm Island (ferry off island is $55), this place is surprisingly economical and food is good and appropriate for the theme of Island living. Nice view from window side table. Friendly staff. Well worth a return visit.

Fabulous Thanksgiving Buffet! Was super busy and the staff handled it really well. Pumpkin soup was rich and delicious, loved the carrot salad. Turkey was moist and the ham was superb. Stuffing and gravy, spot on! For fish lovers - some salmon! Mashed potatoes with garlic - smooth and lovely. Dessert, all you could want. HERE'S MY GRIPE…. we are... More

Service was poor. Difficult to obtain Waitress attention. Our order was was wrong resulting in some people eating, some waiting. Food flavor was OK. Restroom could have been cleaner - but perhaps boaters are harder on facilities? Docking situation was good.

This is the third (and best) time I ate at Rum Bay. The food was very good (as usual) and reasonably priced. Dustin was an excellent, professional server and made this visit very enjoyable.

Even though the day was windy, the boat ride to the restaurant was fun. The view from inside is best if sitting windowside. The food, while not exceptional, is good. Depending on the server, your dining experience can be fun or boring. We were lucky to have a fun server. Need to try it at least once and make up... More

There are a lot of reviews about Rum Bay. Bottom line, it is the only restaurant on the Island, you either take the ferry or the water taxi over, so once you are there you have few options other than chill! We are regulars, we know what we like. It is not fine dining, but its pretty good. We love... More

Short water taxi ride brought us to a quaint restaurant nestled in mangroves. The scope of the menu was impressive and the service was excellent. The freshness and quality of the food is hard to beat! I would really recommend rum bay without reservation!

The first night we went this year, their pilot light was out and they could only make a few things on the menu, no seafood. So we decided to leave and come back the next night once it was fixed. The service was great. The food is average. Nothing exceptional with the exception of where it is. Everything is better... More
