This is my favorite spot to watch people come and go. Has a great local flavor in terms to the clientele. Close to the cruise ships, but they don't tend to stop here often. Nothing better than a cold one, relax and sit back for the afternoon and watch the world go by. Over the years, I've met a lot... More

We went here with two small children and got a table just next to the water where they could see the fish (huge tarpon). The food was good and relatively cheap compared to everything else in Cayman Islands.

Whenever I'm in Grand Cayman I always go to Rackam's. Friendly staff, good food and cold beer with a solid view. Close to the cruise ship piers so it's easy to get to off a ship or know to avoid if your not. One of my favorite places to waste an afternoon.

This does have a great ocean view and they feed the tarpoon each evening, which is great for kids. Good food to add to the setting.

The staff is super friendly. The food is decent and less expensive than some other places on the island but still not cheap. The view is fantastic. And the atmosphere is great. We spent several hours here when we first arrived on the island while we were waiting for friends to get off from work and meet us. The staff... More

My husband and I had dinner here last night. Our serve was A.J and he was excellent. We had the conch fritters to start which were good and meaty (about 6 came to an order). For our main course, I had the fish & chips which they claim to have the best fish & chips on the island. Not being... More

Great place to eat, at dinner you can view the sunset and watch/feed the tarpon fish that hangout at the shore line. Located on the water with outside dinning. The service was great one waitress waited on 14 of us with no problem with separate checks and getting the drinks and food right. i recommend this dining place to everyone... More

The food here was awesome. Good location, nice atmosphere. The only thing I didn't like was the laid back attitude--I understand it is the Caribbean, but my cruise ship leaves at a particular time. I don't want to "waste" my shore time waiting on my check or a drink refill.

Looking to get our fish and chips fix and Rackam's provided it! Food was very good - we all had fish and chips. Downside was that outdoor seating was limited due to inclement weather.
