The distinctive harmonies of karaoke choirs pour out of Rum Runners until 3 a.m. every night, drowning out the din of a digital jukebox and the clinks of the bar's bowling pins and pool balls. Rum Runners lures in patrons with its devotion to late-night revelry: an elevated, tinsel-fringed karaoke stage houses a live DJ and flat-screen prompter with cues for air-guitar solos, and patrons weave past arcade games and poker tables on their way to the stocked bar. There, mixologists concoct the namesake rumrunner and dole out a dozen domestic and imported draft beers.
The Lucky Dill piles tables high and fills stomachs with mountainous signature sandwiches and an assortment of desserts prepared in its bakery. The menu proffers leaning towers of spiced and cured, hot, navel pastrami on a choice of bread including New York rye and sesame rolls ($9.29). The reuben stacks grilled rye bread with corned beef, sauerkraut, and swiss cheese ($9.99). Instead of a powdered wig and a dainty crown, the Queens burger sports a half-pound patty of freshly chopped sirloin topped with onion, mushrooms, and swiss cheese ($8.79). The on-site Brooklyn Bakery crafts an array of meal codas, including the big apple dumpling, which contains an entire apple baked within the loving embrace of pastry and topped with caramel sauce and whipped cream ($5.49).

Thirsty Marlin reels in fresh seafood to craft creative, flavorful dishes served in a festive and tropical atmosphere. Take in the toe-tapping notes of live music Thursday through Sunday nights at the Palm Harbor location, or on Thursday night at the Largo location. Peruse the vast menu. Succulent starters present an innovative take on comfort fare, such as the lobster quesadillas ($10.99) and the grouper nuggets, served fried or buffalo-style ($9.99). Ask the sauce-laden rumba's ribs for a dance ($18.79), or spear some sushi after 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays. The Thirsty Marlin roll ($10.95) quenches the sushi desires of gilled and ungilled beings alike with a medley of shrimp tempura, crab meat, and veggies in a savory eel sauce. Top off your meal pouch with homemade Marlin fried cheesecake ($6.99), refreshingly devoid of fish and bursting with a chocolate-covered Oreo crust.
