We stopped in here for a drink and snack on a warm afternoon. It's a nice place to sit and watch the harbour goings on while having a reasonably priced snack and cold drink. I'd recommend this spot.

My wife and I went to rackams as we were told by our friends that it is a nice place to have drinks and appetizers. We just had one drink because there were no service at all. We need to go and get drinks from the bar. The place is good to unwind and have drinks and to relax thou.

The restaurant serves its good food in a setting that is virtually in the water. From the deck you can go for a snorkel, or just watch the cruise ships in the harbour. The food we had was good, the service friendly, the beers and margaritas cold and the prices not exorbitant. Certainly worth a visit, but don't expect any... More

Nothing particularly exciting here other than a nice view of the cruise ships in the harbor. Somewhat of a waterfront sports bar without the big screen TV's. Service was Ok but nothing outstanding and beer choices are somewhat weak with mainly US brands and two local beers. Nothing on tap. Lobster Cake appetizer was Ok but beware of the very... More

This is one of the few restaurants that serves a whole snapper and its preparation did not disappoint. We made plans ahead and booked a reservation for 6:00pm with a specific request for fresh snapper. The chef (Barty) was very helpful and we enjoyed a wonderfully prepared whole snapper w/rice and beans. Out of several restaurants on the island we... More

We stopped here several times. Many of the locals we met frequent here and we could understand why. We had dinner here once and the food was good. We went back for drinks and had a really good time. This is a great hangout right on the water for good times and drinks. The feeding of the fish is great... More

Rackhams was one of the first places we visited on our 2 week stay in grand Cayman. It has a stunning view onto the ocean front where we were treated to the sunset and feeding of the tarpon. Overall the food and service was very good. We ordered the West Indian curry and Cayman-style mahi which were both delicious. We... More

We stopped by this place at the recommendation of a local. Right on the water, there were diners that were dressed up for a nice dinner out as well as others like us- worn out after a long day of touring around. We wanted a place to feel comfortable at while having dinner and drinks. There was a little mixup... More
