“Great food and presentation.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

Everything at Rumfish is just a little bit extra flashy. From the view of the amazing aquarium (this is too big to just be considered a "fish tank"), to the back-lit menus even the way the food was served was fun. The Blue Crab Cake app put all others on our trip to shame. I had the Seafood Brochette which was served on a kabob hanging above my plate and for desert we had the Florida Key Lime Pie which was heaven with a Mai Tai. Our server was freindly, fast and helped us with choosing our dinner choices. Although a bit pricy, the food was very tasty and there was plenty to bring home to eat for lunch the next day. The outside bare, although we did not go personally, looked comfortable with nice live acoustic music playing nightly.

“Nice fish tank but not much else”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

Went to dinner on a Friday night and found the fish plates to be nothing more than average. The portions are small and the prices are high, but i respect the fact that they have to feed the fish in the tank. The worst part of the night was a family of four that just kept complaining that they couldn't sit right next to the fish tank for 20 minutes and had to take it up with the manager. To placate the rude family, the manager gives the family causing the distraction all free drinks. So i pay my full tab trying to enjoy my mediocre meal, while the rude and loud family causing the disruption get a bunch of freebies. Just a bad experience all around.

I'd like to thank you for giving our restaurant a try we really appreciate it. Opening a new restaurant is extremely difficult and also extremely fun. I would like to comment on the guests who were upset not sitting next to the tank. I personally bought them two drinks for two reasons in which I feel equally important. The first reason is so that they wouldn't further intrude on other guests dining experience. The second is that I wanted them to know I truly care about their dining experience. Now that being said I couldn't move them and the table that they were upset about was a close as I could get them. We try to honor all requests for tank seating however 5 tables touch the tank and as they are used the other tables are next. Outside of the table distracting from your dining experience you stated some things about our food in which I would love to talk to you about and use your feedback in future menu options. Please feel free to call me as you have time. Thank you again for your feedback.

We had excellent food, with quick service and a charming waitress. Michelle made sure everything went smoothly. She even entertained the young children while the mother ate!

“RumFish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

we based our whole vacation on dining at the RumFish grill. After seeing the tank being built on the show Tanked, our son begged to go see it! We stayed at the Guy Harvey Outpost and had dinner at RumFish to see the tank in person! Lovely tanks, good food and service!

“Backlit menus and a beautiful aquarium!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

This is a superb restaurant. The menus are backlit which I've never seen before! They have a huge aquarium that is wonderful to look at during your meal. The meal was amazing! Great crab cake appetizer, risotto to die for... And the key lime cheese cake was delicate and so flavorful! A must for visitors to the area! The staff was so friendly which was also so nice.
