We only had a couple small dishes, and we both regretted that choice! Everything they brought out was amazing. And for fun for the kids, at 730 they were doing a fish feeding for the tarpin, which is a pretty large fish! Casual dining outdoors, fine service. Good place for just a drink, too, as that is what our initial... More

Wonderful atmosphere and attentive service. The manager sat and chatted with us as if we were family. We brought our "fresh catch" fish from Slackem Charters fishing trip and the chef prepared our catch for dinner after discussing preparation options. A must for lunch or dinner!!

Beautiful location right on the waterfront. We went there for dinner one night when the storms over the sea were flashing lightening. Nice show and when it started to raIn, we all dashed under the tents. Really nice view with good food. I think we had appetizers for dinner that night - Caesar salad and lobster cakes. Very good. Great... More

We had a group of 3 families at this restaurant for dinner. The food was delicious and the ambience was casual and fun! It's not boutique or luxury but it's great for an alfresco dinner right on the ocean. There were these huge fish swimming right off the deck that entertained the kids & adults alike. We all loved the... More

Had my birthday dinner here. They have a great view and you can snorkel from their deck during the day. The fried whole snapper was tasty and my daughter declared they have one of the best hamburger she's ever had. And that's pretty heady praise. We missed it, but they feed the tarpon from the deck around 7:30 in the... More

We asked somebody at a local jewelry store about a good spot to eat for lunch and they recommended Rackhams. And what a good choice it was. You can eat in a covered area but it's basically an open-air bar restaurant. Bar types of food but excellent fresh fish. There's an area off to the side where you can actually... More

We stopped here for a quick lunch and sat on the deck. Noticed the huge tarpons swimming right by the deck. While eating delicious fish tacos saw a few swimmers go into the water and realized we could too! Got our snorkel gear and went in ourselves. Those fish were huge and so many! What a great afternoon.
