Amazing food and service

Not only is the staff friendly but the food is amazing. The portions are very generous. 15% typical for tipping.

The restaurant was recommended by our hotel and it was a great choice. You sit outside overlooking the downtown area and of course the water. The food was excellent and the fish and chips were to die for. My son has food allergies and they were very cautious and took care of his needs. They feed Tarpin at night and... More

We really enjoyed the casual atmosphere and beautiful view. The meal was excellent and reasonably priced for the island. Watching the tarpon feeding was fun. Would definitely go here again.

We stopped here after our shore excursion for drinks and a quick bite to eat. Conch Fritters were tasty, and the fish and chips were pretty good too. The view....well, that is one you could stare at all day. They have a ladder that leads down into some shallow water where you can get up close and personal with huge... More

Stopped here off a cruise last year and loved it. Had to return on this trip. Fish is fresh and service is good. Daily drink specials are good too. Iguanas run through the restaurant, tarpon fish are fed from the sides, and kids jump into the water from the restaurant. Lots to watch.

We stopped here on our way back from a trip to Stingray City - our kids were hungry and this place looked inviting with its shaded seating by the water. While it was a bit expensive ($35 US dollars for two milkshakes, a cocktail, a coke and a basket of sweet potato fries), we had the added bonus of being... More

Went to Rackam's twice for lunch between dives. Nice burgers, an outstanding fish'n'chips and good service for a very reasonable price. Specially recommended if you are diving with neighbor Divers Down.

Rackham's has it all. Perfect location, variety of comfortable seating, in the shade or in the sun, with a perfect view from every seat. Very good food and excellent service, a beautiful, no rush atmosphere. The schools of tarpon and watching the iguanas are added entertainment.

We stopped in for lunch here whole crazing the waterfront. While the food was fine the best part of this visit was the critters. The sat right up next to the marina where we found several iguanas anxious to share our fries. We got to watch a bird try to square off with one trying to get at the free... More
