Description of Restaurant:

From the Baystar family of restaurants (Salt Rock Grill/Island Way) Rumba Island Bar and Grill is the Belleair Bluffs jewel with menu created by my friend Chef Tom, has become a constant. The main reason for this frenzy is their “Real Deal” menu @ $10 for a complete delicious meal starting with Caesar Salad or House Salad/choice from 12 entrees. The LAMB CHOP or CUBAN PORK seems to be what I always order, but I have had all 12 selections and each one a winner!! Followed by a mini desert – from three choices. Yes, all for $10.

There are also some other offerings each evening at reasonable prices.

The bar is always jammin’ because --

Well/house wines and some call brands 4 P.M.-6 P.M. @ $2. and 6 to 9 P.M. @ $3 and the Grey Goose Martini/skinny Cosmo/Appletinis are $5 every day all night.

But it gets better –

The bar/lounge area on Wednesday through Saturday evenings turns into the SWORDFISH LOUNGE and is open until 2 A.M. for a kickback relaxing atmosphere – the Bluff’s are rocking.

Boys and girls after you’ve tasted one of these “Real Deals”, you will be eating here very very often because it’s almost too good to be true! Enjoy.
