“Best Island Bar Experience in Islamorada”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Been going here for years. You won't beat the views and overall island atmosphere. When you think of a Keys bar, this is it. They also have great live music on the weekends.

“It's all about the location”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Lookout towers at this bar really make the experience. There are separate staircases going to about 4 of these towers with somewhat private seating and great breezes and views. We did have to go back downstairs to buy drinks. I didn't see any service beyond the bar, but it really wasn't a problem for us.

“Don't expect much.”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

The famous rum runner is an icy, watered down Kool Aide tasting version for $9.00. They do have a happy hour - everyone seemed to be drinking beer. We left.

“Great Location”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Great location, you must go on the top floor. Great view of the Ocean and the Rum Runners are good. Had a great time resting for a long drive at Rum Runners enjoy my Captain and Coke and a few Rum Runners
