I met friends at Rum Runners for a late dinner and drinks. Live music was loud, so a bit hard to hear even people right next to you, but this was expected. I ordered blackened chicken and it was amazing! I am sure I'll be back when in the area.

A bunch of us stopped in here on our first night in Sandestin. The place is a lot of fun. They have dueling pianos every night beginning at 8:00 pm. I had a great time!

Ate lunch here on our first day of our vacation. I kid you not the fish on the sandwiches we ordered didn't even take up half of the bun. The waitress was embarrassed and said she asked about it and was told that is how they are cutting the fish now. We did not return during our ten day stay.... More

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!
