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 sat outside and the kids fed the fish while waiting for our lunch. 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.

After a morning diving, I grabbed some fresh (not frozen) fish & chips here before getting back on my cruise ship...they were a 5-minute walk from the pier.

We stopped by for drinks and dessert after eating dinner at Casanova's. We had the mudslide and the keylime pie and they were both great!! I could have put away a few of each. The keylime pie is served frozen which was very refreshing on a hot night. The front bar area fills up with locals at night and the... More

All of us really enjoyed our meals. I had fried shrimp and I first I thought my selection might be boring, until I got it and it was really excellent fried shrimp. My husband had the curry which I sampled and thought was delicious and not too spicy for me, both my kids cleared their plates. A great oceanfront location... More

This restaurant has an excellent location in town. Unfortunately, it is all smoking so if you are having dinner, you might be affected by second hand smoke. We were really disappointed with that. Hubby had the daily catch which was mahi and I had a salad. Good place for couples though. You can watch the sunset here.

We were advised by a local to check this out, and it was good advice. Easy to find, right on the waterfront. Menu was varied and inventive. Many choices, and local flavor. Fed the Tarpon over the rail right from our own plates.

The drinks here are great. Good fish and chips, as well as terrific conch chowder. You can snorkel off their deck! I understand their is a underwater wreck nearby. Prompt friendly service. Very close to the cruise ship docks.

This place was a trip maker for sure. We went scuba diving at the Lobster Pot Diving School, and per recommendation of our tour guide, we went to Rackam's. We started off with some cool drinks, and appetiezers. The calamari was delicious, and it came with this Jerk Mayo. I could have taken a gallon of that stuff home with... More
