Racks Fish House and Oyster Bar Ratings and Reviews
My first time at Rack's Fish House was a success. Who doesn't love a nice pour and $1 oysters during happy hour? The meal was very good. We were allowed to substitute vegetables without an up-charge. One of our party is very particular in terms of ingredients. The staff was very patient on that issue as well. I will be back.
We ate at Racks for the first time and would definitely return. The waiter suggested the Coconut Shrimp which my hubby loved. I got the snapper with a curry sauce, risotto with mussels. It was just delicious. The service was great, the blackberry mojito was fabulous....overall a very nice experience.
Lovely little find in downtown Delray Beach. We shared the Oysters Rockefeller for an appetizer and it was deliciously creamy. I enjoyed the scallops and pork belly entree.Portions are nice size! Service was attentive and knowledgeable.
Limited dessert options.
OK for everyday dining. Lively atmosphere and very fresh oysters. My husband enjoyed the ribs. I tried the kale salad and found it very sweet...more appropriate for dessert. Service was very attentive, however the hostess who "greeted" us was smileless and made me feel she was doing us a favor to seat us.
This place used to be really really good. Seems like the food has gone downhill. Atmosphere is good. I've eaten here a few times over the last year or so. Service is good. Management seemed friendly. Issues were that Price was rediculously high. 3.50 for 1 oyster is a little much. $125 for 2 people w no drinks or major dinner items is a little much. Risotto was undercooked. Brussels sprouts used to be crispy and sweet but now just plain. Don't have the great lobster deviled eggs anymore either. Like I said, I used to love this place, service is always good, just food was a disappointment this time. Hope they get it fixed.
Overpriced and underwhelming. Worst lobster rolls on record. Nice people pleasant location but there is nothing worth recommending another visit unless you are desperate for a tasteless lobster roll that costs more than the best in Boston. Grilled fish is ok and crab cake is very good and a better choice. Save your money for a trip to Boston
No real complaints. Atmosphere was clean, neat and fun but definitely not for quiet dining. Food quality was very good but I thought on the expensive side. Also felt the menu was somewhat limited in terms of variety and preparation options on the seafood side. Two cocktails, two wines, shared dozen oysters, shared salad and two entrees came in at $110\plate including tip.
The food was great, but they ran out of specials and didn't tell us until well after we ordered. Half of us had to reorder, delaying our evening. The waiter was excellent, but the manager RONNY was rude and unprofessional when we asked for a complimentary round of cocktails for the delay.
Delray Beach was really hopping when we ate at Rack's Fish House. People were celebrating St Patrick's Day and the town was nearly out of control. Regardless, we had a very good meal. Food was inventive and tasty. Lobster rolls, chowder, crab cakes, and scallops were all excellent. We finished our dinner with Key Lime pie. Service was good but somewhat rushed and frenetic. Other than that, we had a very nice ime.
