Group of six. 5 of us were happy with our meal. Service was good, prices a bit on the high side, but then, you are in part paying for proximity to water. Recommend a reservation outside, there is an overhang in the event of inclement weather. Creme brulee was one of the best I've ever had - and I've had... More

I have been going to Rumrunners for 4 years now. My favorite used to be the seafood pot pie. A couple weeks ago I took friends there and recommended this entree. To my disappointment they had replaced the majority of seafood with diced potatoes. Not even close to previous dish. My friend also complained after I said something. We called... More

Had great drinks and a delicious lunch by the water. The canal view was nice, since much of Cape Coral feels landlocked and residential. The cost for lunch was a little pricey, but we thought the food and service was great.

Our Mother loves this place for reason unknown to us she's insists we take her there at least once while we are visiting. We used to live here but recently moved toTN to get away from Florida. The lobster tail was awful, cooked poached in butter. It was chewy and served with alleged butter that also had a strange taste... More

Call days ahead to reserve a table right on the canal! We had to eat inside, which was a bit disappointing, but at least we got a table right away and did not have to wait. My husband and I both had the Seafood Pasta, which was excellent. I had the Almond Joy Cheesecake for dessert, and that was heavenly.... More

Extremely popular and busy; food good somewhat pricey; just seems to try too hard to be creative with their recipes.

As expected the Rumrunner was packed, it is season!, but the hostess did her best to accommodate our group at two tables on the porch. Beautiful spot with a great view. Our Waitress Victoria was attentive and came back several times to take our order and check on our progress. She quickly provided separate checks with a smile. She was... More

After being out on the boat all day stopping at rumrunners was an excellent choice! Even though we didn't have a reservation they were easily accommodating in the dining room. we had excellent service and all four of us were very happy with our dinner. The seafood pot pie is filled with scallops prawns and other seafood with the light... More
