Expect a wait on weekends for a table. Bum Rogers is popular with the locals as well as visitors to the area. The seafood is fresh, the service is good and the atmosphere is fun.

Fast service, generous portions and high quality. The fried shrimp was perfectly prepared. A calamari platter came with a marinara and spicy asian style sauce.

Ate here with my family while on vacation. The food was so good! Although I don't eat seafood, all 12 members of my family said the seafood was outstanding. All the appetizers we got were also very good. For the main course I opted for the Chicken Milanese and it was phenomenal. Will definitely eat here again.
