“Great atmosphere and location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013

We enjoyed the food (particularly the killer shrimp appetizer), and our server was terrific. Nice views with active boat traffic and people watching.

“Been here more than once”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

Wonderful place to take visitors. Nice view of the channel to the gulf. Great sweet potato fries as well as hamburgers, fish, chef specialties and atmosphere. I wouldn't recommend sitting outside to the left as you walk in. It's a bit "common" and no view or atmosphere. It's more for "overload" I think. But try to get a table outside next to the channel, if it's not too hot. Inside in the dining room is still good and you have a view there too. Good staff, great food.

“Tasty food, excellent spot.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

Staying in Cape coral for a week in a rental with a boat, we stopped at Rumrunners for petrol (gas).
A waitress was very helpful even though it was not part of the restaurant, and we realised there was a bell to ring next to the pumps!
We went back for dinner on this Thursday evening without booking and were able to get a table by the water. What a beautiful setting and attractive restaurant. I had been concerned that the meal would be average, but it was wonderful. A little pricey but honestly good value considering the portions and great quality. We had duck confit and various steaks, but the salmon looked good too. It was our last evening before returning and we were all very glad to have made it an occasion here! Best meal in ages.

“Wonderful seafood and nice waterfront dining.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

This was our first time at the restaurant. Went with friends who had been there before. 3 of us had the black grouper special which was superb. The other person had the aged tornados which were also superb. It is not cheap but well worth it. Nice location on the water watching birds and fish jump.Only complaint was the extra charge of 1.75 for two blue cheese stuffed olives in my martini.

“Return visit and not disappointed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

We always make a point of visiting Rum Runners when we holiday in Cape Coral. Once again the food was fantastic, sitting outside alongside the Harbour is so relaxing. The shrimp starters were lovely, as were the main courses, we could not fault any of the food. The waitress could have been friendlier but they were very busy so maybe understandable. They automatically add a service charge so maybe they don't need to be friendly if they get the tip regardless of service!!
