The Happy Hour (5 to 7pm) is a real catch! And the waiters are just unbearably friendly and happy. A great place to enjoy a sundowner with open air space right towards the sunset.

stopped at Rackam's after walking around downtown. On the plus side, a great spot for drinks and to watch the sunset. Very good service. We thought the food was very average. Chicken wrap was bland, with rubbery bacon and no sauce. the chicken was just...plain - not marinated. White flour wrap. Pulled pork sliders tasted pre-packaged. The tarpon and fish in the harbor begged to differ, they ate everything we threw and it was really fun watching them! Go for drinks and to watch the fish.More

Outdoor dining on the waterfront Happy hour from 5pm is one good reason to visit Rackhams, and another is to try out their new evening menu. Staff are really friendly and helpful, views down to Georgetown are wonderful, and a great choice of food and...wine. Many good appetisers including the best tuna spring rolls in Cayman. It’s not high class dining but a place that could so easily become your regular for sunset drinks and a snack.More

During our exploration of George Town, we stopped here for lunch. The wait staff was friendly and the food was good. We also had fun feeding the tarpon, who are clearly accustomed to sharing the visitors‘ meals.

We dine here each time we visit Grand Cayman. This is a casual restaurant just on the outskirts of Georgetown on the way in from Seven Mile Beach. We were originally seated at the far end of the restaurant, which is out over the water....We were waiting for another couple and it got late and the section we were seated in was closed, so we were asked to move to another part of the restaurant while waiting. My husband and I shared an appetizer of conch fritters and they were quite tasty. My husband had the fish and chips, while I had the shrimp and chips. For some reason we seem to order the same thing each trip. Both entrees were very good, as was the service. We had two rounds of Cayman lemonades which were well made, and on special. We were treated to a beautiful sunset while we enjoyed our dinner. Parking is available at the restaurant. There is both a bar and an area with tables and chairs. Each night the tarpons are fed right off the restaurant and it's quite a feeding frenzy! We'll be back on our next visit to Grand Cayman!More

After diving at a local shop nearby we were told to check this place out afterwards for food and drinks. Our server was incredibly friendly, even explaining to my wife how to eat her whole fish that she had ordered, how to debone it etc....The food was delicious (expensive but delicious), the drinks were spot on and you cannot beat the atmosphere. At the end of the meal they also encourage you to throw your fish scraps to the rather large fish that congregate near the “pier” you are eating on, which adds to the fun. The only downside is with a couple of drinks a meal for two could push you over 100usd. Ours was north of 130 after tip, so this definitely isn’t a “cheap” option while in Grand Cayman. It was, however, mostly worth it. I am sure they have cheaper options (I saw them) but most were appetizers or fish and chips type options. I can get that at home, so we went with more “island” inspired dishes. Regardless, great spot. Hope you enjoy.More

Great little spot close to the pier. We had a couple drinks, curry cheese fries and onion rings. Everything was delicious. Service was terrific!

Fish and chips here are the best on the island so we have been told and so having them proved right. Not too much batter. Fish excellent service the same.
