Nice place for drinks at the end of the day with views over the sea. The food is good as well. The location is convenient and there are some parking spots however these can run out quickly on a popular night

Great food, delish drinks, and a place to go for sunset right on the water. The mistake I made was enjoying the drinks and not ordering enough food. Friendly service, lots of locals.

Sit on the deck over the ocean for a great view of the sunset during the free food (wings and things) happy hour. Stay for the tarpons and relaxing

Great place to sit and watch the sun go down with some decent food and drinks. We had a couple of drinks and some sweet potato fries.

We arrived on a Sunday evening and about the time we got there the weather turned and it started raining. Our waitress suggested we take cover which we did. As we stood under an umbrella at a high top table (not much cover) we noticed an off duty staff member sitting at the bar with a friend. They were not... More

Our group of four had dinner here and quite enjoyed it. We quite liked the tarpon fish feeding at 7:30 p.m. They ring the bell and everyone congregates at the balcony to watch the tarpon (big fish!) eat the meal that is thrown to them.

Rackham's isn't gourmet food, but it is a terrific waterside bar, with terrific views and huge tarpon gliding 'round the restaurant. Staff will give you food to feed the tarpon, and you can even snorkel right off the side of the restaurant. The drinks are terrific and the staff friendly and relaxed. Definitely worth a visit.

What I like about Rackams is that you don't feel like you have to dress up! You can go casual, watch the kids feed the Tarpon and with a great sunset. Our server was great. Last time I was there it was a bar and kinda run down. But they have really cleaned up the place and was quite relaxing... More

We ate there between dives with Divers Down, at their recommendation. (Which also gave us a 10% discount, which was an awesome surprise.) I had the Penne Alfredo, and it was delicious. My buddy had the lobster cakes, also good, and the curry fries, which he said were amazing, and a combination he never thought of. Our waitress did seem... More
