The right first-stop!

We arrived at 1pm and this was our first stop for quick lunch! We had an awesome view of the Caribbean Sea, big cruises, and we even fed the fishes... great first-impression of what the island would be for us on the West Side! ;-) Food is fine, we had sandwiches and my daughter that is very... read more

Stephanie was amazing, one of the best wait staff we have had in a very long time. Recommended some delicious food and some wonderful drinks. The Snapper fish sandwich and burgers were great. Must try the Blueberry Lemonade, refreshing after a long day of walking and shopping. Loved the waterfront dining amazing views and the living room style dining was... More

We stopped here before boarding our ship. We ordered drinks. They weren't bad but a bit pricey. The food was good. I ordered the fish and chips. It was a little too greasy for me. My 15-year-old son loved the hamburgers and my 12-year-old son gobbled down the chicken tenders. The cool thing was that you could use a ladder... More

We visited 7 mile beach on a day when there were no ships in port, so my review might be a bit different. At the end of the day we just happened to drive by this restaurant. We were tired and hungry. Parking is right by the outside seating. The setting is quite nice and without the crowds the service... More

We ate dinner at Rackam's twice during this year's annual trip to Grand Cayman. We have been coming here at least once each year for their "Deee-licious" fish & chips. The hefty portion of fish is fried just right and is accompanied with large group of hot fresh out of the fryer fries. Just a personal warning, focus on finishing... More

Went the other night after some snacks at another place and had late night drinks with friends. Great atmosphere from the staff, music and location and the drinks were good, cold and good value.

I would usually only go to Rackam's for happy hour but it was decided that we should go there for lunch. One of my friends had the curry chicken and liked it very much, the other had a sandwich and the last friend and I had the steak! The steak was awesome and was cooked perfectly how I liked it!...

The food itself was good, but nothing spectacular. The best part about Rackham's is the ocean view. Seeing the large tarpon swimming around the restaurant was a unique experience for me. I really enjoyed sitting on the ladder leading into the water, and just watching those big guys. I was curious about the local lagers, but did not find the... More

Rackam's was recommended to us by some of the staff at Diver's Supply. After our first trip we were hooked. The staff, food, view and atmosphere was great. The last night on the island, my wife and I chose Rackam's to celebrate our 11th anniversary.

We went to Rackams for the first time with friends who lives on the island. It has perfect views and sunset. The tarpans are fed each night. They ring a bell and everyone yells its time to feed the tarpan. We ordered a bunch of apps for the table including mussels, wings, conch fritters, homemade chips. We also ordered dinner... More
