I found this place to be extremely unprofessional from the servers to the kitchen staff. No one knew what they were doing. We sit down at a table we are no existent to the servers. It took a while to get our menus (yes I was able to forgive that) due to the inexperience of the wait staff and how... More

Absolutely amazing! Please do not listen to big Don H who wrote that bad review because he is wrong. I have been here many times and I really enjoy it. You will too.

Jack's underwent a complete transformation since our last visit last summer. The restaurant doubled in size and is much more inviting, both from an ambience and food preparation. We had take out and dine in meals throughout the week and were never disappointed in the quality of the food. The french fries were great and we ordered multiple orders of... More

And service! Lov!!! The jerk sauce is too spicy for us. While waiting, there is a baseball game playing on tv. Located inside the stone harbor square. Will go there again.

We stopped by today at 8:50pm with a party of 11 (5 adults and 6 teens) for dinner. The kitchen closes at 9, but they sat us and we ordered. The dinners all came out at different times, probably a 15 minute difference. It seems like the sandwiches & starters were a hit. I ordered the fish tacos - Not... More

I've read some reviews on here and they seem to be divided between the people who got lucky and got decent food and had nothing to complain about and people who got lousy food, complained and felt like the staff/management just didn't care and didn't seem interested in correcting the problem. The latter is 100% accurate and unfortunately my wife... More

As Shore eateries go, this is better than average mainly because there are more than a few non-traditional offerings, such as panini. The setup is more open and inviting than it used to be. The food is no more than you'd expect, but all-in-all, pretty good.

Just plain good "boardwalk fare" in an outdoor courtyard. Cheesesteaks, fries, onion rings, burgers-everything is good!

Found this one day while looking for a different place to eat lunch. I am working in the area for the last several months and get tired of the same food. Found Jack's Shack one day and now we go there at least twice a week. They have a Scallop BLT that is divine and many other specials to mention.
