Excellent waterfront views with tarpon visible from tables. Snorkelling great. Fish and chips great. Cayman iced tea cocktail was weak and meh. Waiter was drunk. Drunk. We own a home on island and I'd like to take guests here but the wait staff was not exactly friendly and with Cayman prices I am very hesitant to order another cocktail here... More

We ate here after snorkeling and really enjoyed the view of the ocean and fish along with visits from a couple of iguanas and a chicken wandering by for a snack. The food was good but the service was marginal. Recommend the conch fritters!

We stopped here for a few drinks and some grub. We heard that we could snorkel here and sure enough we did. They have huge Tarpon and many other fish plus there is a ship wreck about 100 yards off. Don't pass this one up.

The food was ok and service was slow but the view was great. You could even jump in and take a dip while waiting on your food.

One the bartender has a attitude problem toward the local and it was very unplesant, she just turned me away even to try order something off the menu she was very rude, for that I have to say I will spend my cash somewhere else

About your average oceanfront bar and grill. My family had the conch fritters to start, which were the worst we had on the island all week. Also our place settings weren't brought out until after the app arrived (maybe our waitress was having an off night; she was super apologetic about it) and the water came in dinky plastic cups...

We recently stopped in to grab a light lunch and were pleasantly surprised. There were four of us and two ordered the first and chips and two ordered the Jerk Chicken Sandwich. All of us remarked on how good the food was. You have a great view of the water and all the boats. The staff were super friendly. It... More

I recently have been frequenting Rackam's and continue to feel it's a comfy, welcoming waterfront bar/restaurant. The drinks are generous as is the food offering pub fare to lovely seafood meals. Happy Hours tend to be fun and draw a good crowd.

Rackams Waterfront in george town is a beautiful rustic open air waterfront property. featuring ocean views and spectacular sunsets.The restaurant is built on natural wood decking surrounded by lush greenery.We are just a two minute walk from the heart of George Town the capital Cayman islands.Rackams is a great place for snorkeling too! From our ladder swim with the tarpon or enjoy a short swim to the wreck of the Cail. Bring the kids they will love the tarpon feeding every night at 7:30pm.Rackams was named after the notorious flamboyant pirate Calico Jack Rackham who as legend has it was one of the first pirates set foot in the Cayman Islands See you soon ; )
