Menu is great, portions huge. I had the perch, would probably not get that again as it didn't taste as fresh as I like. Gyro salad is excellent, burgers great, granddaughter loved her pancakes. Will be eating leftovers for sure.

My bookclub met at Rumors over the weekend. Unfortunately, they don't take reservations on the weekends so I had to come in early as I was told there was a party of 50 coming in at the same time. Thankfully we found a corner that could accommodate us, because the place got packed!! The food was pretty good, but the... More

Nice place for a casual dinner. Servers are friendly and remember you and stop by the chat. Portions are huge and food is good. I just wish they served real butter with the pita bread, not spread. Salads are great, sandwiches yummy. Haven't ever tried an entree but I'm sure I would love them.

This is a great place to eat! The portions are enough for two people. The hummus is the best I've ever had. I had spinach pie, lovely flaky crust. Husband had a salad. There was so much chicken on his salad , he took some home and had another meal. Cocktails were very good, service was with a smile and... More

I love the food here, and continue to go back for years...The prices are good the portions are great! Don't dare complain about your food though the owner can be a real idiot, but his food is normally excellent. 1/2 price breakfast before 12 everyday and it's an awesome deal. If you go to this place and leave hungry you... More

We went for breakfast on a Monday morning around 9:30 am. There was one server taking care of the bar and the entire restaurant. She was very nice, but there was no way for one person to take care of that many customers. Our food took about 40 minutes to arrive. I had the Country Omelet which was huge. It... More

Once upon a time, Rumors was a good choice for decent Middle Eastern food at bargain prices. Over time, either my palate has been refined -- many, many other Middle Eastern choices in Toledo are far better -- or their quality has slid noticeabley. And their prices have climbed pretty high. Rumors is no longer the bargain option it was... More

We were happily surprised at the size of the servings at Rumors. We took home enough good for another meal for the two of us. The perch was delicious and not greasy. The steak was reasonably priced and cooked to perfection.Service was exceptional.Our server waited for us to sit and was right there to take our drink order. We will... More

The food here is great ! We both had the gyro platter and potato skins with cheese. The amount of food was over the top. We took a lot home even after having our fill at the restaurant. The service was a bit slow. The food came out quick but we waited quite awhile to get the check.Would definitely return.

The food here for Mid Eastern food has yet to be topped. It is a bar atmosphere but not loud. The service is very slow. We have made 6 or more visits here and the service has been slow even when there is not a full house. I can remember only one time we came here and actually got decent... More
