Reviewed October 30, 2012

Ate here as a family and found something for everyone, prices were high but not excessive and we all enjoyed the food. Well worth a visit.

“Beautiful View!”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

Wonderful selections of food and drinks! Great place for ladies night out or brunch. Fantastic service by all that work there. Very good bar tenders! They know how to make a good drink and have a great selection of wines and liquor.

“Good service, but way over priced”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

I just felt for the quality of the food it was over priced and the portion size was terrible. No real price specials except for 1 dollar shrimp and osters. The dollar shrimp were really big

“Unbeatable Atmosphere(s)”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Rumrunners is located on the waterfront in Cape Harbour, and the views are just lovely. You can dine in several different settings, which is why my title says 'atmosphere(s). There is an inside formal, an inside less formal, a very pretty bar, two outside decks, (one that allows dogs), and a sunny place just in front of the restaurant. We arrive by boat, (sometimes we bring the dog, so we appreciate the dog-friendly area), and it is very easy to tie up--lots of space. If you do arrive by boat, I recommend going through the lock and tying up inside the canal where it's not so busy.
The food is higher-end and there are different offerings every day. We love the wide array of tropical drinks--a real speciality here--and Rumrunners offers happy hours and drink and appetizer specials as well. I recommend the Bistro salad with blackened salmon for a light lunch or dinner.
The service is usually stellar, and we will go back.

“The best the Cape has to offer!”
Reviewed October 10, 2012 via mobile

We cruise here by boat every Friday night for drinks and dinner.

Excellent base menu and great specials. Some of the best service in Lee county. Don't leave without a bite of the mango cheesecake.

Pricey? I guess, but what are you comparing it too? Taco Bell? Quality, fresh ingredients are not cheap.

See you all next Friday...
