We have been going to Racks for many years and always enjoyed it even though its not cheap.However it has deteriated recently and our last visit was the final straw. We were served by an over friendly server whose manner totally changed after we had complained about being served cold food not once but twice. When the manager came over and we explained the problems he was very condescending and plainly not interested in dealing with our complaint and the server was standing there glaring at us. As if this is not bad enough we have since the visit been trying to discuss this with their head office And have had no proper response do they really don't care about customer service. Expensive and Arrogant!

This restaurant is aways fabulous. It has a great bar area, very lively and very first class but very comfortable. But the key, is the great food, everytime. I have never had a bad meal there or been disappointed with the service. The crab cakes are the best in Florida. They are 95% all crab meat and are really tasty. The chopped salad is the best. I always like the chopped salad at Ruth's Chris but Racks is superior to that. The portion is very substantial and the taste with all the blue cheese is great. The grilled chicken is done to perfection, finished on the wood oven grill. Pre dinner you are greeted with pretzel bread that is warm, fresh and very good. Another must to share with the table is the lobster macaroni and cheese. This is a must!! And if that is not enough, the barbqued ribs are the best in Boca also. You will love this place and oh, by the way, order a dessert for the table---the pecan brownie ice cream sundae is incredible and comes in a bowl entirely mde of chocolate. Four persons can easily enjoy this incredible dessert. Enjoy!!

A lively atmosphere with great food and service! I always eat here when I'm in Boca. My favorite is the trout. Definitely one the better restaurants in Mizner Park.

We spend plenty of Thursday's at Racks last summer. Ladies drank free ... That was it! Yesterday, we were charged ... Never warned ... Just charged for our Chardonnay and Cabernet. Imagine the shock of the person who held the tab for what he thought was only going to be for his own drinks. A whopping $27.00 more shocking!

Apparently free has a disclaimer which is neither in their Facebook ad or their menu. Merlot and Pinot Grigio are free. But don't expect the only bartender for a packed bar to tell you ... She won't! And for that, we won't be back!
