Food was great, drinks were also delicious. However, drinks are pricey and prices weren't on the menu.

Entertainment was PHENOMENAL. We are already planning another night to go back this trip!

I love Rum Runners. It is great for people watching, the drinks are strong, and the atmosphere is fun. It is my go to bar when I'm in Sandestin.

“A great dueling piano bar - but a great restaurant too”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

This place is so much fun between the dueling pianos and the guitar player. The Killer Colada is a must have for any Pina Colada lover, you will believe it is the best you have ever had. They did run out of a specific beer one night, and the taps were down too (a bit awkward for beer drinkers). The food is the surprise here. It is great. Have had several meals at Rum Runners and have not been disappointed in a single one, food is truly delicious and a great value.

“Best place for frozen drinks!”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

My children have such fond memories of going to Rum Runners and listening to the dueling pianos during our spring break visits in the past. We will visit every year.

“Wandered in for a beer and ended up closing the bar”
Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

Monday night we were walking by and heard live music. We went in, sat down and ended up closing the bar. They had great entertainment. They had a guy and his guitar. He was pretty good. Then when he took a break a couple guys went up and was dueling pianos. They were great. Playing everything we were throwing at them. From Sir mix a lot to Neil diamond. They also had great wait service.
