Ribs were burned to a crisp and inedible. Waiter should have noticed before serving them. We sent back and got replacements and were charged twice and had to speak to manager about adjustment. No remorse about quality of food. Noise level inside was intensely high. Food and ambience not like it used to be.

Nice to sit outside. Not picturesque but fine. Food was outstanding. A bit noisy on sidewalk with passers by...but worth it. Great food and service.

Waiter was nonexistent. Apparently too busy. Food and drinks EXTREMELY OVERPRICED!!!! This is not Morton’s...in fact Racks prices were higher then Morton’s. Drinks were $16-18 on average. Won’t ever be back!!! Crazy prices!!!! Don’t eat here

The food was, as always, awesome. Not one thing to complain about. The later the evening went the louder it got. That was the only drawback. But we will be back, just a little earlier.

Food was excellent. Charred octopus appetizer was a hit. Oysters were very good albeit very pricey. Blacked grouper was superb, as was the grilled cobia. Overall, excellent food, average service. Would recommend.

good food and ambiance , i just regret that no social distance between tables or any restrictions applied . a table of 20 persons sat next to us and we felt oppressed and not in a 'covid friendly ' and safe environment . so we had to rush and leave for that reason . we might go back off season ... maybe .

Been here before and knew it was more of a tourist type establishment. Opted for some oysters and a few "Happy Hour" items. Half price wines by the glass was nice. The fried bananas were not good at all so left them in the plate but didn't complain. The fried oysters were not crisp and somewhat soggy. Oysters were fresh though and that was the main reason for going. It's a busy place and the service was good. Not really complaining here but wish the food was somewhat better as it's a busy place with a busy kitchen. We'd give the food a "3-star out of 10" rating if that's a way of describing it. Overall not bad, not good, just so-so.

Their oysters are very very good. Their slightly dirty gin martini on the rocks is first class. They know exactly how to produce juicy, perfectly cooked platinos. Rack’s is the kind of restaurant that people want when they go on vacation and crave excellent food and a wonderful memory.

Kitchen mixed up our order so we had to speak to the manager. Not only did they make it right they went above and beyond to make sure we were satisfied and taken care of. Really impressed with the food quality - steamed clams were outstanding, the day boat scallops were super tender and Boursin grits just delicious. Really appreciate a restaurant that works to make you feel valued and concerned about your experience. We will definitely be back next visit. Worth checking out.

I’ve been to Rack’s multiple times and I’ve always enjoyed my experiences there. This time was no different even though there were some hiccups along the way. We ordered the special which was a lobster tempura roll, but they had run out. The kitchen did jot communicate that to our server, Justin L, until 30 minutes later. Obviously, we were disappointed but the manager, Justin, came over, comped the replacement entree and made sure it came out quickly.

Everyone has the ability to make mistakes and I really appreciate that they took responsibility for the miscommunication between the kitchen and the wait staff by comping our entree. I’ll definitely be going back to Rack’s in the very near future.

I want to start and say the server was great. That being said, the food was mediocre at best. The appetizer crab cakes was one severely burned crab cake. Our meals arrived incorrectly. The quality of the food was more fast casual than a $200 dinner. Won’t be back

We were so disappointed in the oysters and clams. The manager gave us a few extra of each but they should never have been served. The sushi and other items were good. Our server James was excellent. Usually the raw bar is much better.
