Great music and nice food

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.

Really enjoyed the Baytowne Wharf area, so wanted to walk around. Rum Runners seemed to have a decent menu, so we decided to give it a shot. It was empty, which we thought was odd. Nonetheless, we stayed. Bad decisions. Service was okay, nothing special. Salad with mahi - HORRIBLE. Fish was gross, and the salad was hit-or-miss rotten. And... More

Great food and drinks. Lots of seating. Try the grouper and a Miami Vice. Friendly staff and great location. Great parking. Great for couples or families.

We enjoyed drinks at Rum Runners, where they have dueling pianos at night. Off the outside patio, there is an adjacent bandstand which also has live music.

Spent about $60 in this place, on drinks alone. Asked the bartender how to request a song. He told us to fill out the form and give them a few bucks. It was my husband's birthday. We requested his favorite bar song and gave the piano player "a few bucks." He proceeded to ridicule the amount given, even saying to... More

Nice fireworks display. Nice view. Clean restrooms. Live music...That's the problem. Those are the only positives. It took us an hour and a half to get our food. It was bland and cold. Oh, one more positive...the mashed potatoes were excellent. The waitress was super and actually told us that she had to fry some food to help out the... More

Ate there 3 times in 4 days. It was always a good experience. Food is fresh and the grouper was excellant. Service level was high. Very attentive wait staff. All orders were correct and served piping hot. The entertainer was really good with a large variety of music in the afternoons. The outside deck is very nice in the evenings.... More

We did not eat here. We went for drinks and the dueling pianos. It was fun. They had a singer guitar player perform before the pianos started and he was entertaining. The piano music and singing was good. It isn't as high energy as a Howl at the moon but it was a fun way to spend the evening. No... More
