Where else can you have the BEST BURGERS EVER and listen to some awesome live music? My kids loved requesting songs and singing along. This is our favorite SanDestin place!!

Had a family dinner here in July 2016. It is located in Baytowne Wharf which is part of a bigger resort area called Sandestin. I had the blackened fresh fish of the day (Grouper) with mashed potatoes. The fish was really well prepared and had a great taste. The vegetables coming with it was ok, but felt that it could...

The food was good but for what we got, it was completely overpriced. Surprisingly small servings. 8 coconut shrimp $10, 2 crab cakes $12. Our lunch for family of 4 was $125!!! I understand that resort restaurants are naturally a little more but this was a little over the top.

We ate here during the day and I believe were the only people here. There was NOTHING on the menu for a vegetarian but that isn't unusual for ANY restaurant in Destin. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant if there is a vegetarian in your party.

We happened upon this bar and got a table in front of the duel. It was loud, the burgers were good and the beer was cold. There was a bachelorette party next to us which was as entertaining. At one point, a guy got up onto a chair and mooned the girls. They were taking selfies with his rear. A... More

When you eat on or near a resort property, it's not surprising that you pay a little more. That was the case at Rum Runners. I had the grilled Mahi Mahi which was very good. My father had the house special grouper with crab meat and a lemon beurre blanc. Our food was good and the service was good as... More

My husband, our son, his fiancé and myself went to Rum Runners for dinner. The food was excellent, especially for the price! The frozen drinks were also delicious, very smooth and almost creamy, no ice chunks. The entertainment was also very good. They played a variety of music and sang very well. The only complaint I would have is that... More

Having been a few times, I can give pretty good insight. 1. It's a fun place once the dueling pianos start. They are engaging and entertaining. A must do for groups looking to sit and have a few drinks. 2. The service has always been very good. 3. Indoor and outdoor seating...the outdoor seating is included to the open indoor... More

The food and atmosphere are just what you'd expect from an off-the-water restaurant and bar. Menu is primarily sandwiches, burgers, and fried seafood. It's on the pricey side for what you get, but given the location, that is to be expected. Staff is friendly and helpful. Can get loud later in the evening.

I enjoy listening to the piano when waiting to pick up my daughter in the evenings. Haven't tried the food or drink but I enjoy the atmosphere.
