Ask the drink prices before you order. $12 for a regular sized Margarita. The prices were expensive, the band (which was good) was very loud. They had a nice outdoor patio. We had a great bartender, until she tipped herself with our credit card. The atmosphere was good, just not good enough for the money we didn't realize we were... More

The owner is HORRIBLE. Came here with a friend who's very tall, and reached up and touched a fan. The guy freaked out and kicked him out with NO WARNING. I could understand if he had been drunk or belligerent, we had been there for five minutes. Terrible.

Average place. Bar, music & pool. Thats pretty much it. We were a bachelorette party of late 20s & it seemed like we were the entertainment. So many older (40s/50s) guys kept coming up to us w/ some standard pick up lines. The crowd that was there seemed to be having a good time, but we just hung out in... More

Rum Runners is a great local , family owned for 30 years, bar & grill, w/ Live bands and Karaoke at nights. Step inside and get to know all the local Cape Codders. The food is excellent, I highly reccommend the Prime Rib , marinated steak tips and the stuffed Quahogs. They also have the best Bloody Marys and Sunday... More

place hasn't changed. I find it a rip off. Depending on what time you go in. Went in this month and yet nothing changed. Won't go back other places more welcoming.

Very friendly service, wide variety of beers and families have an area to sit in and still feel like it is a bar

I visited this bar twice over the Fourth of July weekend while vacationing on cape cod. The atmosphere was so great! Friday a band called the grab brothers played to well over a hundred people who sang and danced along. Sunday night I returned for one of the most fun karaoke nights I've been too in a long time! the... More

I actually like Rum Runners in the summer when they have a good band playing but it's really more bar than restaurant. Fun if you want to go dancing in a small hot crowded beach bar but not the place to pick if you are looking for a good family dining experience.
