“CLOSED!”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

Rumrunner's was a pretty cool establishment until they quit showing restraint in their alcohol service and would not stop serving patrons that had obviously consumed too much. They ran afoul of the police and then the alcohol board and were finally shut down. The building has been bought by Hard Rock and is in the process of being remodeled.

“Dissapointing”
Reviewed 25 December 2013

Ate dinner here in July 2013 during a two week road trip though Alaska. This was by far the worst experience of the trip. Food quality was poor, overcooked, poor in appearance fish and mushy vegetables. The servers are slow and seemed uninterested. There are many selections of craft beer on tap but servers have no knowledge to make recommendations. When two different beers were finally delivered to the table the server could not tell us which was which. This establishment seems to cater to cruise ship passengers who will come once and never been seen again, the staff don't care about repeat business. This is a prime downtown location and could be so good. Come on guys, you can do better.

“Value meals - Good service”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

We had dinner here on 2 consecutive nights- The staff were friendly without being overly pushy - On night one we went as a couple and enjoyed our meal- On night 2 we went with a group of 7 others- We were able to split the bill and the staff were helpful :)

“Trouble and trashy”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

It really does not matter what type of day you come in, early afternoon or evening, this is a dumpy college bar. The food is terrible....On that note, if you are looking for a fight or rude bouncers, this is your place
