I was very surpised, but in a very good way

The food was great. We ate lunch here during the week and it wasn't very crowded, but I was very pleased with my meal. They had a good variety to choose from. Looks like a great place for drinks in the evening.

Went out with some friends for drinks after our conference. The drinks were great and the entertainment of the dueling Pianos was lots of fun. Great way to end the day

We had a lot of fun here, only had drinks so don't know about the food. There was a guy with a guitar who could sing any request given to him. Later two guys played pianos. It was fun to watch people dancing.

My wife, 2 year old and 4 month old and I were looking for something quick with seting outside and noisy to drown any possible noise from our kids after a long day of travel and ended up going to Rum Runners. Having been to other Rum Runner locations before, our expectations weren't too high, however the food was actually... More

We went here knowing they do the dueling pianos, but got there early for some football and an early dinner. We didn't expect much out of the food because we just thought of it as bar food. Much to our surprise, the food (or at least mine) was pretty darn good! We got the tuna dip to start which was... More

Dualing pianos start at 8 p.m. music and very open at the wharf. A bit pricey for the food but very good and nice and hot. But you pay for entertainment and all is good vacation time.

Went for lunch with friends. We ordered a variety of apps and entrees. They all were ok but service slow and lackadaisical. Nothing special. If you like fried food with abit of a view you probably will like it here.

Live music was fun, but almost all of my party of 12's orders were wrong, food was bland, took way too long to get both drinks and food, and was never brought some things the table requested. The drinks were okay.
