A Refined Restaurant With Florida Spirit
Savor St. Pete’s best drinks and dining at the extraordinary RumFish Grill®, the ultimate marine dining experience. The incredible space at RumFish Grill is the first thing you’ll notice upon arrival — our undersea-style atmosphere is dominated by a custom 33,500-gallon fish tank housing an entire ecosystem of local species. In fact, it’s so impressive, it was featured on the Discovery Channel’s “Tanked”! The menu is no less a jaw-dropper, offering an ever-rotating selection of forever-fresh catches du jour, expertly prepared using only local and seasonal ingredients. A wide range of pasta, meat, and poultry dishes round out the menu, with many gluten-free options available.

Touch Tank Experience
Hold sea urchins and other critters. Learn interesting marine trivia and gain an appreciation for sea life during this hands-on, kid-friendly exhibit. This experience is limited to two 1-hour sessions so our critters can rest. Open 11 a.m. - noon and 3 - 4 p.m. (Tuesday-Sunday). Located in the Outfitter Shop.
RumFish Grill's Tanked Aquarium
The crew on Animal Planet’s Tanked designed, built and installed the 33,500-gallon aquarium in 90 days on national television. The tank was the largest and most challenging the crew had ever built. On Mondays, you can still catch a lot of action as two divers scrub the tank from top to bottom. Did you know that 2,400 pounds of salt is mixed monthly to create this exhibit?
Predator Tank and Lionfish Invasion
In the RumFish Grill bar, the notorious 700-gallon Predator Tank showcases Lionfish. This non-Florida species, native to the Pacific region and the Red Sea, has begun to invade the area, consuming and displacing other species. Lionfish can be eaten, so this exhibit educates diners to request lionfish at seafood restaurants to create growing demand.
Juvenile & Middle School Tanks
Drop by the Juvenile Tank, a 700-gallon Florida aquarium at RumFish Grill. This tank is home to Florida species, some of which will graduate to the Tanked aquarium. The tank also emphasizes the importance of mangroves as nursery grounds for young fish.
Visit the Middle School Tank in the Outfitter shop inside the RumFish Beach Resort hotel. When these Floridian fish outgrow the Juvenille Tank, many are moved to this tank, preparing for their move to the large tank. This tank is 400 gallons and sits near the Touch Tank experience.
Educational Wall and Tank Viewing
As you explore the tanks, drop by the educational wall at RumFish Grill, lined with plaques offering information about the marine life inside the tanks. All of the tanks, with an exception of the Predator Tank, feature fish that are indigenous to Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.
