Jack's Shack is almost at the end of the bars/attractions along the beach from the pier but definitely walkable. (Cab is $4.00 each way if your not up for the walk.) Staff is always extra friendly. Small shop with restroom. Tip: Grab a Barfly shirt while you are there! Great shaded area at outside bar. Cool off in the ocean... More

We were here recently on a cruise. Short walk toward the sunken ship to the left when you are leaving the ship. Great service from man renting umbrellas, $10. Chairs were free. We loved the jerk chicken freshly made on a grill to the right of the bar. You pay at the bar and give your receipt to the griller... More

Stopped at Grand Turks from the CARNIVAL Cruise ship. Friend recommended Jack's Shack and a visit to Topher. It was high priced but so was everything else we saw. The staff was friendly and the beer was cold.

Went there while on a cruise and I had to leave early but my husband stayed behind. When he got back to the ship he showed me our bill and we were charged for 3 drinks and 2 beers that we did not drink. Our waitress was mediocre at best and apparently put other people's drinks on our tab. Because... More

My family and I went there because a guy on our cupruise highly recommend it. After waiting for over 20 mins for someone to take our order, we got up and went to the bar to place an order because we were tried of waiting. We ordered the jerk chicken which looked good but having dogs walking around the sitting... More

We have been to Jacks Shack a few times, once on a cruise and twice while staying on the Island. The atmosphere, food and location are great for a laid back tropical day! The water is amazing, clear and warm! Great seeing Topher, Jack, Janet and their growing family! Always a great time!!

Family of four visited after snorkeling. We feasted on finger licking good JERK chicken and fries. Great value for $10 a plate. Definitely recommend the cracked conch as well. Whole family trying to get the last piece!

This was our second visit to Grand Turk and second walk to Jack's Shack. The first time, it was a festive atmosphere. This time, on 10/24, it was a gloomy morning and I guess we were the only ship, so it was pretty dead. I don't think that Jack was even there. It was a challenge to even get a... More

Whether you are staying on the island or visiting on a cruise ship, a visit to Jack's Shack is a must. Great food, cold beer and great people. Jack's is only a short walk from the cruise ship terminal.

If you're looking for a super casual local restaurant with great seafood and drinks right on the beach, this is the place to go! It's about a 20 minute walk down the beach in Grand Turk but the drinks are very reasonably priced and yummy, with cracked conch and fish sandwiches to die for! Grab your food and drinks and...
