Our group of 20 was seated on the water. We chose this restaurant for the dueling piano's for entertainment after dinner. Our dinner was very good and we finished up just before the piano's started to play. We had so much fun singing along and dancing to the music that we all continued to talk about it the next day....

You definitely need to stop by at 8:00 p.m. every night for the "Dueling Pianos". It's a lot of fun.

Saturday night piano players are not my idea of a fun night out, so I was skeptical. Boy, was I wrong. Super talented two piano players played and played and sang and sang and played and sang some more with no breaks. Popular songs, audience-requested songs, songs to sing-a-long with. The place was empty at 6:30 am, almost full at... More

After a meal of oysters at Acme's Oyster House, we stopped by for the music. We were thoroughly entertained and recommend this for a good time!

Our large group came for the dueling pianos but enjoyed the food as well. We were entertained by two young musicians taking requests. They were extremely talented and funny. We had the opportunity to dance on the small dance floor. Will go back!

We stopped in for an hour for coconut shrimp and entertainment. The dueling pianos were talented and the 18 yo birthday party of 9 girls kept us I stitches. The audience was engaged even in this off season period. Don't miss rum runners if you come to Baytown Wharf! The music is good and the drinks are reasonable. I had... More

I can't say enough about Rum Runners. Today was a quick pickup order for lunch and I can tell you that they were quick preparing my order. I had their coconut shrimp which was os so good. Even though this was a to go order, the food presentation looked great in the box. I plan on going back for lunch.

We were very happy with our dinner there. We each had the fish of the day, one Sautéd and one orleans. Meals were both excellent. Nice portion of vegetables which was very nice after a lot of eating out on vacation. Service was also very good. We went back another night for a drink and dialing piano bar which was... More
