Decent food with a nice view

I ate here recently while in port for the day. It was conveniently located close to the tenders back to the ship. What's not to like about sitting outside and enjoying a beer and some lunch? The food was good- nothing stands out as amazing but it was good. We had fish sandwiches and burgers... read more

The place is by far the best food we have had for lunch. They take pride in the food and way they cool it here. My wife had the hamburger and I had the fish and chips. Literally the best fish and chips I have ever had. AWESOME and I would love to have some now. They import fish for... More

We watched the cruise ships come in and unload. That was fun watching the bay so active. I had the lobster cakes for appetizer and they were great. I had a jerk chicken wrap for the meal and it was good as well. Wait staff was nice. The only issue was their website says they open at 10am. I got... More

Kind of an open air beach shack atmosphere. We had delicious food (curry chicken) and beer. Quick, friendly service. We were caught in a sudden shower, and staff worked quickly to move those getting rained upon, in good humor. VERY PLEASANT place to be.

The food and location at Rackhams is wonderful. Where else can you feed your leftovers to the tarpon? We typically go for happy hour/sunset. You can't beat the location in Cayman for a sunset.The curry fries are amazing. I also recommend the jerk chicken sandwich. It will set your mouth on fire; however it is nothing that a few Cay...

Stopped by after hitting some of the shops and did not know what ti expect. Good menu selections with a little bit of everything. Tables out over the water so you can enjoy the amazing Grand Cayman view while having a nice lunch

My boyfriend and I dined here while in port from our cruise ship. It was within easy walking distance of the cruise terminal and had seating all along the waterfront (which is what initially brought us in). We sat in the section closest to the water and could see there was plenty of seating available - even a lovely covered... More

We had lunch and dinner here several times. The conch chowder and fish and chips were the best we had on the island. They have great comfortable couches that face west. Which at sunset we usually had them to our selves. All the cruise ship people were gone by then. It just didn't get any better.

This is a great spot to go to watch the cruise ships leave. Go to the furthest spot at the waters edge and sit in these really comfortable couches under the canopy. Whatever you order make sure you get the curry fries - "to die for"! Head there for around 4 pm to watch the ships leave. Very entertaining and... More
