“Good Food, Nice Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

My wife and I and our 9 year old had three lunches and one dinner here during our ten day stay on the island. It is a relaxed, child friendly place right on the waterfront of Christiansted with great food. It serves standard dishes like fish and chips and burgers which are all well cooked, and some more adventurous specials which change every day. The service and price are both good, which cannot be said for many of the restaurants on St Croix. It is a reliable choice if you want to visit the Danish Fort or go shopping in the town.

“The Place for Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Our party stayed on St. Croix for several days during which time we visited Christiansted. We found Rum Runners on the waterfront for lunch one day and enjoyed it thoroughly. A day or two later we snorkeled at the Buck Island Reef National Monument during the morning (also highly recommended). Upon returning to Christiansted, we couldn't pass up having lunch at Rum Runners once again. The return visit was well worth it. The menu is quite varied, something for everyone, and the prices are fair. Most importantly, the food is very enjoyable and the service correspondingly satisfactory. Although we are now several thousand miles removed from Rum Runners, every now and then we mention wanting to have lunch there once again, if only that were possible.

“Good Food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We ate at RumRunners several time. Very good food and great view. We enjoyed having lunch there after the Big Beard snorkel adventure. If you want to eat breakfast at the RumRunners get there before 10 am they actually close for an hour to prepare for lunch.

“Great local place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

There aren't a ton of spots to eat in downtown Christiansted; RumRummers seemed to be the most popular. Drinks were great and food was good. Great low-key local place.
