Went here for a Sunday brucnh, not a crazy one like some spots on the island, but has the choice you need for an a la carte yummy breakfast! Drinks are delicious! Gorgeous dock and outdoor eating options, could definitely picture a private party there on the water. Feed the giant hungry tarpon some leftovers off the dock - fun... More

I will never go back or send anyone else to this pit. Th staff have horrible attitudes and the food is way over priced. I lived on Cayman and know that it's more expensive than North America but this place goes out of it's way to jack up the menu prices. There are a couple of other options in the... More

We ate here our first night in Grand Cayman. Snapper sandwich was absolutely delicious, as were the conch fritters. Great relaxed atmosphere, good cocktails too. Don't miss the nightly tarpon feeding!

Was recommended to this place by a friend to grab a pre-dinner drink and watch the ships leave. It was a pleasant outdoor location, food and drink were average. Not a bad choice, but perhaps also not the best.

We have dined at Rackam's on several occasions over the past three years, and just recently had dinner. DO not order the fish and chips; some kind of greasy fish called swai so if you are expecting halibut or haddock or cod, think again. The pasta special was the best of the four dishes tried at our table and that... More

Visited Grand Cayman as a stop on a recent cruise. Walked for a little bit and found ourselves at Rackam's. Lovely view of the ships and the bay from the outdoors seating, so we sat and had a nice lunch. Ordered a few appetizers (Conch fritters and curry cheese fries), definitely enjoyed them. Our party of four ordered a burger,... More

Cool place except the food is not that good and the prices are high and the drinks were weak. You are only paying for atmosphere. If you wanna see some Tarpon (big fish) being fed, then stop by and have a few weak drinks and enjoy the show.

Delicious, fresh food right on the water! You can feed the huge Tarpon while dining in the sun. The coconut shrimp is the best I've ever had and the fish sandwich is worth coming back for. They seem understaffed so the service is slow, but everyone is very nice. Worth it for the delicious food and drinks!

The restaurant from the road looked closed....drove on past and saw all the lights out back. Turned around and parked and went in to eat. We have been on Grand Cayman for four nights and this is by far the best meal we have had. Three of us had the Cayman Style Mahi it was the best Mahi I have... More
