Rum Bar has lost its Mojo

Years ago, Rum Bar was pretty edgy for an airport dining spot. I stopped in recently for an early dinner when I had extra time before my flight home. The specialty cocktails are just too sweet, and aren't as classic as RB would like to think they are. The menu items are over-described on the... read more

A large group had dinner here recently. Seated promptly, had drinks pretty prompt also. Food was good. Also have smaller portions which are great choice also. Can sit outside, however not with this night's weather.

Yeah, friendly staff towards me. Mostly hovered around the service bar chatting with each other. Not much else to do to be honest. No reason to go here unless you're stuck here.

I don't use trip advisor for on the run meals. But as I sit here, in said dining spot, I am compelled to write for the sake of anyone who might just look for a review to spare them this experience. I may just start using trip advisor as well for these 'on the run' choices if others pledge to... More

We had three hours between flights in Charlotte Douglas International Airport and were looking for a place to have a meal. After careful analysis of reviews available online, we agreed on Original Rum Bar and Grill in Concourse D. It was a good choice. We ended up sharing crab soup and one entrée per couple and it was enough food.... More

Missed our scheduledatabase flight. Stopped in for an unplanned dinner. Both the chicken monitor and the Palomino a steak salad were delicious! The waitress was pleasant and brought a free soda refill without beingetting asked. Give it a try.

Served us well on a recent trip connecting through from an early flight. food was fine: eggs, sausage, bacon, toast, coffee, juice, milk, you know, the usual breakfast type stuff which is hard to mess up anyway! I wouldn't bother reviewing it except we had a hard time finding breakfast in CLT and maybe this will help you if you're... More

Server refused to take my order 20 minutes before closing by making up excuses on food cooking times...then when I said I would wait she told me they were closed. Horrible...don't waste your money on such horrible service and rude workers.
