Went there since I had been there before and enjoyed it. After a long walk there, come to find out, it is closed! So don't go trying to find it.

Rum Bar was great! The food was delicious -- having been to Puerto Rico, I had high expectations for the Mofongo. I had the shrimp mofongo & my boyfriend had the pork: yum! The drinks were awesome too. Pricey but very well made! To be honest, we had a deal through Living Social for $50 towards food. If we hadn't... More

They have over 200 rums on the menu, many you will not find at any bar in the surrounding states. The Muscles Martinique and the Cuban Style Calamari where some of the best of each dish that I have eaten anywhere. I highly recommend a night at Rum Bar.

If you like to try different flavored alcohol, this is the place to go. Cost may be above average but if you go for happy hour, there's usually a couple of specials. Food is average. Service is friendly but most certainly can improve.

I dont like pumpkin or carrot but they have soup down pack at Rum bar because after having the avacado soup I decided to try the pumpkin carrot soup and it was GREAT. I think they... More

Maybe we had a bad experience because it was resteraunt week. We went to the rum bar and were given regualr menus. We made choices off the app menu while we waited for drinks. The drinks were sublime. Then we tried to order and they only had a select menu cause of restaurant week. They never said this to us... More
