We had a good seafood meal at Rum Runners in early June 2015. We had eaten there before on other vacation trips to the area in past years. We sat overlooking the lagoon. The atmosphere was great and being able to watch people walking through Baytowne Wharf was added to it.

Rum Runners has a fun and festive atmosphere with some fun drinks. The entertainment with the dueling piano's is fun for all. When in Sandestin make sure you stop by.

I ordered the Shrimp Combo for $18.00. The Shrimp was chewy, the fries were soggy, and the hushpuppies could have been cooked longer. For what you get you are better off spending your money elsewhere. Very mediocore food and not worth the money.

We choose Rum Runners for the music and atmosphere. Also we didn't want to get into the horrible Destin traffic- we could walk from our room. We sat on the deck by the pond to watch the activity, and the music is a very loud inside. We had a drink and fish for dinner. We enjoyed our meal but would... More

We ate here our first night in Destin. They had delicious drinks but the food was nothing special. The menu was pretty boring and didn't have anything special I was eager to try. Although the Mahi Mahi I ate was cooked well. They had live music and a great atmosphere. Our waitress was also very friendly and attentive.
