The Rum House Restaurant Review

: A corner restaurant can sometimes become the hottest spot in the neighborhood, which is what happened when The Rum House took over a busy intersection on Magazine Street. Industrial strength margaritas and mojitos complement a selection of more than a dozen combinations of tacos, everything from jerked chicken to fried oyster to pork mole. If tacos don't appeal on a given day, the kitchen turns out ribs, some quality steaks, and many small-plate items, too, such as conch-and-sweet potato fritters. Order the fried plantains or coconut mango rice on the side, and for dessert, target the mile-high Key lime meringue pie. If the crowds are inviting, get there for happy hour on weekdays from 3 p.m.-6:30 p.m. for $2 Red Stripes and $5 rum punches, but be prepared for a mob scene that spills out on to the street.
