Not a great experience. First time being here and brought a group of fish lovers. Service started slow and took almost 10 mins for somebody to greet our table. Server seemed to rush us but slowed down after the initial greeting. We asked about the catch if the day and were told every item on the menu was today’s catch.... strange guess there was no fish special today even though it said it on the menu. We waited over 30 mins for our food at which point we were told one they were out of snapper. They replaced it with grouper and food finally arrived after about 45mins+ total. They offered a couple drinks for the inconvenience but at that point things were pretty sour. We had fish tacos, sea bass, grouper, and a churrasco. The only person who liked the food was the steak order which isn’t expected at a fish restaurant. At this point t we won’t be coming back here.

We had the oysters to start. They were good but not a great selection and most of them had modest flavor and character. Our salmon was cooked perfectly and well seasoned. The fries were outstanding and our waiter was exceptional and pointed out Monday’s wine promotion which was fantastic. The manager came over to say hello and was gracious and checked on our experience. It was a terrific evening.

We eat here frequently and have never had a meal we did not like. Usually the noise level is very loud but we sat in the center section and it was not as loud as sitting in a booth against the wall. Racks is a little pricey but we really enjoy this restaurant.

The food was not bad but overpriced for what is was. The biggest problem is that there were flies trying to get to our meals.

I wish I could give a more upbeat commentary but Shellfish dish needs a lot of work at the price charged. Lobster should be a small tail not pieces and the oysters that were served with dish were sub-par. Again at that price Kumamoto oysters or that quality are more appropriate. Clams were also poor quality.

need more fresh fish selections for a Florida Seafood restaurant. I had the Grouper and it was OK...a bit over cooked. My girlfriend had the Sea Bass and it was much better.

My friend and I both had the trout almondine. It was not one bit fishy, and probably the best trout that I’ve ever tasted. My friend agreed, and has gotten it in the past, and said that it is consistently delicious.
The food is a bit pricey, but wonderful. The server was attentive.

The service was very friendly, and quick despite the crowd. The food unfortunately was very mediocre and not what we expected. It’s was pretty much glorified bar food. Fresh food is trending right now, so when I see braised red cabbage on the menu, I expect fresh braised red cabbage, not canned polish beet cabbage loaded with sugar. The drink I got was undrinkable also. We didn’t eat or drink barely any of it... we moved on quickly.

Service was fine. My snapper was just ok. Muscles app was great. Decor was very cool. Flies were an issue. Not sure why since we went to other outdoor places and didn’t have a problem. Not worth the price tag in my opinion unless just going back for apps and drinks and happy hour. Also they charge $3 for bread. Really?? Poor customer service.

A party of 5 enjoyed the food so much. Menu is so good that we got far too much but loved it all, both at Racks and later at home. I especially enjoyed my filet which was cooked perfectly. Their slaw is vinegar, not mayo, and excellent. Salads, shrimp and fish were all great. I do prefer Lemongrass for sushi.
All told it was a beautiful experience.
