We had the Taco Tuesday special and the shrimp tacos were delicious. The salad was not very good. But the service and the indoor/outdoor atmosphere was fun!

Jerk Chicken will knock your socks off...SO full of flavor. Brisket and Calypso Beef tacos so good. And absolutely don’t forget to order the Rum Punch, but just one or you may be calling for an Uber.

The Rum House is a pleasant and needed distraction when my cohort and I need to get away from the books. The tacos are delicious and the sangria margarita is better than the rum punch! The inside is always chilly, the outside patio is perfect.

Almost identical to my last review. Damn Good Nachos were excellent and good enough for a meal. Mango guacamole was excellent. Frozen drinks were like having desert. Beer - ice cold drafts. Good service. I will return and recommend.

A young man on my flight recommended this place and it seemed appropriate to take a local's advice. I was wrong. I had three types of tacos and not one was good. I should have known walking in and seeing only one other patron that...More

You'd have to contact them directly but the inside space was large , maybe you can rent entire space for evening?

Don't know answer to that. But do your homework on finding the restaurant. Their street is not in Garmin's database.
