If you want local flavor, this is the place. Our bartender Gary was the bomb! Pina Colada's in a coconut was the best drink I had while in Freeport! They chop of the top and made a fresh frozen pina colada right in front of us. Great Photo op of you sipping on a true coconut drink. Yes it's crowded... More

Since the hotels closed across from the market Rum Runners seems to attract the low lifes. Most visitors were avoiding the area all together. Unless the hotels reopen I'd avoid Rum Runners.

Crowded and uncomfortably poor seating and not enough room between people, seats, tables, etc. Needs a good cleaning, too.

It is our tradition to have Miami Vice's at Rum Runners when we are here. Best ones anywhere in the world in our opinion.

Hurricane Matthew visited Grand Bahama. Progress is being made to bring the area back . Rumrunners is lively and totally back to normal. Same bartender crew and restaurant staff. Food great, very reasonable and served fast. Great conversations with bartenders that are very interactive with clientele. A visit is a must on your bucket list.

Cannot praise them enough. From the quality of the Mojitos to the laid back attitude (I managed to walk off one night without paying my tab; next night they just produced it and all was well)
