My wife and I have dined here on many occasions. The food is always very fresh and presented beautifully. The servers are pleasant and efficient. The view overlooking the canal and docks is lovely. Whenever I have out of town guests visiting this is my go to place

Had lunch with another couple at this lovely location. Boats on the canal seemed to be visible from all the tables, inside and out. Service was prompt and friendly. Prices were typical of the area for nice restaurants. Everyone enjoyed their meal and selection was adequate for two of us who had food allergies. There is, however, a parking problem.... More

Beautiful drive down to Rumrunners. The buildings themselves have a very Bahamian theme to them, colourful, open air type building. If you sit outside you get a great view of the canal and lock. Beautiful boats coming in and out very relaxing. Service in the restaurant was wonderful, courteous and a nice pace. Food was wonderful. Prices were exactly what... More

Our family recently enjoyed a delightful dinner at Rumrunners. We have dined there multiple times since it first opened and have never been disappointed! Whether we have had the seafood pot pie or Todd's meatloaf, the food has been of high quality! We appreciate that it is one of the few "nice" restaurants where we can go by boat with... More

My husband and I make sure to visit Rumrunners on each of our Florida visits. This year we were in Cape Coral for a month and had lunch at Rumrunners five times. On one visit we brought friends and they liked it so well they made a return visit. The food is great, the service is marvelous and the view... More

I have been here several times and always have good fish. Usually get the specials of the day. Service is good and has good outdoor dinning with views of the canal. Nice relaxing place, make a reservation.

This restaurant offers five dollar appetizers and cut rate drinks from 3:30 PM to 6:30 PM. Get two and call it dinner! Love the Bolognese, and the chicken! Will be visiting there next week again.

My husband & I avoided the Valentine's Day crowds by hitting Rumrunners mid-afternoon. We decided on drinks and small plates, and were pleased with all that we got. While it was not spectacular food, everything we had was tasty, especially the crab cakes. The table we had was right by the rail on one of their patios, overlooking the busy... More
