Fun place with lots of activity! Loved the happy hour (2 Corona's for $5) and loved the Bahama Mamas!

Had a few drinks at Rum Runners after the entertainment at Count Basie Square was finished. Stephan treated us like Royalty. Great time!

“Fun place that has stood the test of time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

Rum Runners has been serving in Port Lucaya since forever. We first spent time there about 25 years ago and it is one of the few places that remains (Fatmans Nephew next door was a favorite but is now Pizza Hut - sad). The bartenders are fast and on top of things. It is a great place to hang out, have fun, chat with people, people watch and drink. Check out all of the money on the walls and the signatures on the chairs/walls and almost every surface. Everyone wants to leave their mark and it is fun to go back years later to see if you can find them! Go - have fun...

Dear “Fun place that has stood the test of time!”,
Sounds like you have some history here on Grand Bahama island! You are absolutely correct! The place is fun and probably will always maintain that atmosphere!
See you next time at Rum Runners! Drink responsibly…..(Whatever THAT means!)

Cheap drinks and decent food! Right in the center of port lucaya and always has a crowd at it. Well worth a visit for a drink
