We ate dinner around 4:30 and we were the only ones in the dining room. As such, we were well taken care of and our food arrived quickly. We shared the coconut shrimp appetizer, I had a fried shrimp sandwich, my mom had fried crawfish tails, and my grandma had a charbroiled tilapia sandwich. Everything there was excellent. The remoulade... More

I'm going to give this place 3 stars instead of 2 because there are dueling pianos that start up around 9pm or so. They were a blast and played some really fun songs. Other than that, the food was mediocre, and the kitchen was backed up. One thing that just irked me so bad was when I asked the hostesses... More

My friend and i were not let in at 9pm because we were in tank tops and board shorts. What kind of vacation experience were they trying to provide? And we are locals. I can't say good things about this place nor will ever give them a chance.

They don't skimp on the alcohol. Great music and a good location for dining or just drinks. Typical menu and prices. Staff are super sweet. One of the girls told my son (10) that he was so cute he could save his cup and come back for a free refill

Caribbean Egg Roll & Calamari were excellent. Surpassed my expectations! We will definitely be back next time we're in town.

Great fun! The dueling piano masters got the crowd involved and played great tunes! Definitely worth taking in a drink and a song!

AVOID this place unless you want to pay $15 plus tax for a glass of wine. Do yourself a favor and drink water or go somewhere else.

Had weekend business in the area and decided to stay in baytowne wharf for the convenience. Stumbled upon the first place I saw (rumrunners) that looked decent for a cold beer and bite to eat, which I am glad I decided to stop! Sat at the bar and had impeccable recommendations from the yankee bartender. I decided to go with... More

It's my second visit to Rum Runners; both have been for the same reason and I think that's why I like it there so much. We stopped twice. First was afternoon drinks on the patio outside where we enjoyed a beer and then went inside to hear the music and have another drink. A singer was strumming on his guitar... More

Been to many restaurants in Baytown Wharf but never tried Rum Runners. Awesome experience! Really great service, food and atmosphere! Had calamari and it was awesome for an appetizer. Very fresh and not tough with an awesome sauce. Followed by fresh fish of the day - grouper blackened. Not over cooked. Moist and extremely good. The key lime cheesecake was... More
