There is a very nice raw bar. We have had a good variety of oysters. The main courses are well prepared. The service can be a little slow when the place is very busy.

We love this place! The highlights are the Shrimp Cocktail, the Fish Tacos, and the Crab Chowder, but our favorite is their definitely their Key Lime Pie, probably the best in Florida. Rack's has a terrific gourmet menu to choose from. Perfect vacation spot.

great food and service, but they apparently gave us old menus. When the check came, at least two of the items were priced higher than the menu The manager's response was that food costs more on holiday weekends
