After diving, my son and I ate a late lunch here and dined at the bar. The female bartender ( tattooed young lady ) was amazing and provided wonderful service! The food was amazing and the beer was cold! Will definitely visit again in May 2016!

Although the sea was whipping the night we went they still made a point to feed the tarpon for the guests which is one of the reasons we went there. Good was very good and service was as well.

We've been going to Cayman since 2003 and we go to Rackam's every year. They've made some changes over the years, but they usually always have a good Mahi dish. The service has always been good as well. We aren't really into the fancy dancy places so we enjoy it here where we can get the view with a more... More

Our family loves this place because they can accommodate large groups and still provide good service. The food is consistently fresh and nicely presented. This is a kid friendly place but still good for couples. Nice casual soft seating for drinks on the waterfront. Great place to watch sunset and good prices.

We loved coming here for food or just drinks over the water. Its a great location right in George Town and is litterally over the water. Watch the sunset from your table and enjoy the friendly staff. They have a fried egg roll tuna appetizer that was amazing!

Came here after our tour was cancelled due to the boat breaking down. Ordered the Fish and Chips and Pulled Pork and 2 drinks. Food was great! Beware the pricing is in Grand Cayman Dollars, 2 meals and 2 drinks came to a little over $50USD.
