Rumrunners in Cape Coral fits the bill if you’re looking for harborside dining with indoor and outdoor seating options and a hearty seafood menu. Some patrons arrive by boat. They also host a wide selection of tropical drinks like their Mint Lemonade and Key Lime Colada.

Southwest Florida is Growing

As you may know, the Southwest Florida population is booming with people arriving from all over the country. It’s a great time to make new friends and settle into the balmy sub-tropical weather with its beautiful scenery, birds, and crystal clear water of the Gulf of Mexico. Having arrived from New York, it was a delight to experience the dry, sunny weather of the winter months. It is truly a place for year-round outdoor fun. I haven’t met anyone yet who misses ice-covered roads, potholes, shoveling snow, and weeks of sub-freezing weather in the northern climes.



A Place for New Friends

With some friends new to the area, I recently went to Rumrunners for dinner. We chose the outdoor seating with the lovely marina view. It was also a great place to see the sunset as we dined.

Here are the seating options.

The salmon entree was cooked well-done and deliciously crispy. The dessert was refreshing and seemed perfect for the setting. Everyone in our group enjoyed their meal and plans to return!

Tonight was an entertaining concert by influential, gifted, and driven artists. We shall be hearing from them more and more as their sparkling careers continue to evolve. The band was solid, the sound balance was excellent, and the musicians seamlessly shifted through the demands and diverse styles of the songs.

We’ve entered a dreamscape created by the collective minds of Monty Python, Quentin Tarantino, Guy Ritchie, and Stanley Kubrick. In this virtual world, we laugh at violence, wait for punchlines, root for our heroes, and experience larger-than-life events that can only occur in fantasies.
