Rackam's has wonderful patio seating with excellent views. We were there in time to enjoy the sunset and witness the tarpon feeding which was fun. The wait staff was slow at first, but once our orders were placed our waitress was more attentive. I ordrered the pork sliders and they were really good, but the fish and chips that I... More

This was our second trip to Rackams and it was delicious. My husband loves to get "Cayman style" Mahi where ever we go on the island and he says, Rackams has the best! The jerk chicken sandwich is so tasty and spicy, my mouth is watering as I type. And we've ordered the fish and chips, served with malt vinegar... More

AJ was a great waiter. Very attentive and helpful with tons of information about snorkeling off their bar. He spent time with my children pointing out types of fish but the best was that he even pronounced our last name correctly when he presented the bill. No one pronounces our name correctly. A great place for snorkeling and for families.... More

We stopped her a couple of times on our trip. Had fun sitting at the bar. We were there when a couple of the parasailing boats came in. The place had lots of locals there, the prices were reasonable, and the bartenders were fun and conversational. Would definitely recommend stopping by.

The past couple of times we have been to Cayman, we have had lunch at Rackam's. Start out with a fun snorkel trip right off their deck and down the ladder. The water is beautiful and you can swim with the huge Tarpons. There is a ship wreck not too far out that you can see. Then afterwards, have a... More

We were referred to Rackams by Mark, owner of Moby Dick Tours. We were given 10% for our referral. We were not disappointed, they have an amazing location, perfect for sunsets. After searching for a more affordable restaurant that didn't overcharge for small portions, we found Rackams Very Good and affordable for what we were looking for. Calamari was delicious... More

Rackam's is a great place to go for dinner. I had the fish and chips which were very good, and it was fun watching them feed the tarpon at 7:30.

We had fish tacos, chicken wings(not the best), Shrimp and Chips, Penne Alfredo with chicken and The grouper special along with Lobster cakes appetizer. EVERYONE was happy except for the chicken wings...again, not the best. It was a great spot to eat lunch or grab a... More

Seared Tuna was great and so was the fired shrimp. The fish sandwich was just so so. The bar and service were great. Price was reasonable. I would go again.
