Racks Fish House and Oyster Bar Ratings and Reviews
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.
Had an 8pm reservation on a Friday night, and it was a good thing that we did as it appeared people were lined up down the street to get a table. Started with oysters which were incredibly fresh and delicious. We had one picky eater in our group and our waiter and the kitchen were very accommodating which was much appreciated. All of us scraped our plates clean. Key lime pie was far above standard and the best I can remember having in awhile. Would highly recommend to those looking for quality seafood.
Outstanding sushi...being from NY you have a certain expectation and Racks superceded. Excelent sushi, Jason...Jason....Jason best server. Personable, knowledgeable and made sure we were happy. BUT must say we witnessed the entire staff hustling for customer service. Will definitely come again and refer family and friends
We have eaten at Racks many times before but found the service to be seriously lacking. We waited 15 minutes to place a drink order and then found it ridiculous in trying to place a dinner order. Racks Oyster Bar had so so oysters at premium prices. We ordered on waiter recommendation. Mistake...We had to search for waiter at the end to get the check which we would not have minded paying close to $275 for 4(one did not have a main course and only one drink a piece). This was hardly worth it and we will not return.
A nice casual restaurant with outside seating. Our usual restaurant Rosa was closed btw lunch and dinner. Open table directed it here and thanks to your reviews, we found a hit right around the corner that was great. Thanks for taking the time to rate restaurants, we help each other that way.
We shared a kale salad & our entrees were blackened swordfish and fishermans platter. Food was good, we found the waiter a bit pushy in asking if we wouldn't rather have a fish platter with scallops. The hostess was a bit glum & I there seemed to be an undercurrent with the staff.
The good parts; great cocktails, good wine price, excellent kale salad, vegetables were very good, delish truffle fries.
Not good; main course (snapper) two orders, $29 for a small piece of fish and twice the pieces were under cooked. Would NOT recommend. Poor value and preparation.
Specifically asked for outside when reservation was made - no outside available due to happy hour hangovers! Wanted outside because guest had just flown in from frozen tundra of Chicago. 4-5th time we've eaten here, always recommended it. Not anymore. Trout special (which I have loved) was watery; asked for rolls got 4 tiny rolls for $3 - are you kidding me. Sent the white wine back and got a different one that was worse. Just kept it. Waiter never came back to ask if we needed anything like a coffee refill. Too many good restaurants on the avenue like 32 East, Tramonte's. I don't like to complain, I just don't recommend and will never go back.
