Although my lobster special was delicious and worth the money, at $42.00 a dozen, the oysters were the smallest I've ever been served. Also, the waiter mixed up who got which oysters and only informed... us after half were eaten. His solution was to trade some with each other. Not very professional. We were a party of 9 and most of us enjoyed our food but all agreed that the rolls (you had to pay $1.00 each) were stale and not worth it. Had to ask for flatware a few times. Steamed clams were average. Service was pretty good, but the place was packed. Might return because of where it is and have a cocktail at the bar. See More

Having the best seat in the house (in my opinion) is the only way to enjoy a night out. That’s how our night started. Corner booth is always a crowd pleaser. My drinks were spot on, service was amazin...g but my lobster roll was just decent. Lobster was a bit chewy and the roll was huge so I found myself peeling off a lot of unwanted bread. I found myself still hungry after so I ordered another cocktail, and all was right with the world again. I’d definitely go back and recommend but I probably will try the skirt steak next time and avoid the roll. See More

Eaten here many times but whatever you do Do NOT order the Fried Chicken for 22.00. It an order of friend chicken finger like you serve kids !!! The sauce on top was not even BBQ. Why not just say y...ou are getting chicken fingers or strips that you feed to kids at 22.00 you should be embarrassed was the most disgusting meal I have eaten in delray for years !!! See More

Overall poor food and service and VERY over-priced.

We were there for dinner on Saturday, Dec 30th with a reservation for 4 at 6:00 pm. When we arrived we had to stand in front of the hostess stand f...or at least 5 minutes before she would even acknowledge us. She was arguing with another hostess about something but even a look up at us would have at least let us know that she knew, or cared, that we were there.

When we were finally seated, despite having a reservation and there were multiple open booths, we were placed at a table directly next to the service area of the bar. This meant all evening waiters were constantly in front of our table, getting ice, drinks, or other service items for their tables. Not sure why we were placed here, but it wasn't all that crowded and another table probably would have meant a much better experience.

But even both the hostess and the seating location could have probably been overlooked had the food been decent or priced fairly. The kid's pasta was $9 and literally came with so little pasta that we had to send it back because it wasn't enough. It didn't come with any sides or anything else so our kids left hungry and we had to feed them a second dinner after we left. We had been willing to pay for steamed vegetables or anything else they could eat with their meal but that wasn't 'available'. They charge for bread, which costs $3, and it was stale and dry. The oysters were advertised as a happy hour special, but that price didn't apparently apply to where we were sitting so we paid twice as much for them. The fish special was $32 for a tiny piece of fish and one side of vegetables (brussel sprouts) and both my wife and I found the food to be oily and greasy and lacked flavor. For a meal of this price, we expected much, much more.

I read in one article that Gary Rack likes to get both good feedback and bad feedback but I emailed the restaurant and never received even a courtesy response.

When I made the reservation I specified handicap accessible we were running a few minutes later I phoned to let the hostess know. When we arrived they offered a high top table, did they not notice my ...husband was in a transport chair.? I had to remind them Service was mediocre. We ordered the calamari with buffalo sauce on the side it was tossed and spicy the waiter Ryan kept rushing ourparty to order One person in the party requested tonic water and was served gingeralr when questioned he said oh , no he finally came back and said we ran out? Seriously? That is unacceptable perhaps offer something else but on a sat eve when anticipating a busy night do you really run out? Sorry to sound so negative but I am in the biz and am not too critical but I felt like I was thinking for the staff. Busseers were super polite Not so sure we will go back. See More

I gave 2 stars because I was in a good mood due to the company I was with. The food was so overpriced, and they didn’t include a salad nor did they give out any bread to the table. How the FUCK do y...ou not give out any bread when you are over charging for everything else. I’ll never eat here again and I’m hoping most people will read this review and will also not spend their money here. I’d rather eat at the Chicken & Fish place down the street in the ghetto then give this place my money ever again. See More

Service was excellent and having a hamburger with oysters on top was new and surprisingly good. My wife said the crab cakes were almost as good as Maryland crab cakes. That's high praise.

Food was tasteless and French fries soggy and very greasy. Bread hard as rock. All seems like very old stale food. Ugh. Never will go again.

Ate Dinner there about a week ago and the service was excellent and our food was good. Prices were a little high but price were high everywhere we ate in Delray Beach. It is a tourist town and you d...o expect that. We got the special Lobster Sushi Roll and it was fabulous and my seared diver scallops and risotta was spot on delicious. Our waiter was a great young gentleman who took great care of our table. And love the atmosphere of the place. See More

We recently have been eating in Downtown Delray at least once a day sometimes twice, and just visited racks for the 1st time.
The hostess wasn't very personable, the rest of the wait staff was nice a...nd friendly though. I had a lychee martini that was served in a stainless martini glass, the martini was heavier on the coconut than the lychee and I started to get a little freaked out about stainless having a reaction to the drink so I didn't enjoy it. I ordered a margarita after that that was absolutely AMAZING.
We ordered the crab cake dinner and seafood stew. Both were mediocre at best.
The crab cakes were bland and tasteless and the side dish was no lie, like 1 lb of coleslaw. Kind of unappetizing. I love cole slaw and it tasted good but come on now, I would consider two side dishes instead of that.
The seafood stew's tomato "sugo" (sauce) was horrible. It was extremely sweet and had hints of something (probably cinnamon) which neither of us cared for. The chef wouldn't disclose what ingredients were in the sauce thankfully neither of us had any food allergies is all I was thinking.
Long story short, food was meh, margaritas rocked. We probably won't be back, there are too many other places on or around the Ave.

If u want a seafood dinner, atmosphere and all around the most amazing service then you must eat at racks. Food is fresh pasta is made in house oysters are out of this world. It's a must.

The oysters were good, the food was good, but i find it a little too expensive for the type of food being served.

We were there for the $1.00 Happy Hour oysters but they showed up full price on the bill. We had a bit of a dispute but the gracious manager explained that "corporate" does the billing that way but in... total we were charged only $1.00 each as is on the menu. Unfortunate that they do it this way as at least two people an evening have a dispute over it and they have to take time out to explain. Other than that, food is wonderful and service is wonderful. I will definitely be going back. See More

Holy Moly! What a fabulous establishment. From soup to key lime pie, everything is a savory surprise. The sushi is smashing. The oysters were rocking! And did I mention the key lime pie? Oh, well, it'...s worth another mention. Our server, Anthony, couldn't be stumped- spot on! The ambience is superb and the chefs bar is enchanting. Don't miss it! See More
