Far away from already confirmed felted beach of Grand Turk, this shack offers you a more quiet beach experience. Munch cheaper then the other places, they even offer free beach chairs. Grilled food and cold beer completes this authentic caribbean place.

Recommended by locals and reviewers, Jack's Shack is the place to get the best Jerk Chicken at the beach in Grand Turks. It's really easy to get there, get off your cruise, start waking on the beach, enjoy the views of the white sands and clear water and after 3-5 minutes you'll see the sign for Jack's Shack, locals, tourist...

This was no our first time here however it was our first time having the conch and the jerk chicken! Initially we ordered a single jerk chicken, but after everyone in the group sampled it, we ordered 3 more. I have always wanted to try conch and decided a long time ago that when we were here I'd order it.... More

The location of this place can't be beat. It is right on the beach, down from the cruise centre. They have volleyball nets and lounge chairs. The servers here are really great - IF you are sitting at the bar. Otherwise, service is hit and miss. The food is good, but overpriced. This place tends to attract a louder, and... More

Glad you enjoyed your drink and the ambiance at Jack's Shack. Prices for alcoholic products are sky high on island as the government taxes it. We pour a healthy drink and are forced to pass these prices along to our customers. Jack More

Fantastic place with food and drinks just in the beach. Run by a friendly family with an even friendlier dog. The dog will even join you in the water. They even have a volleyball net and a ball if you're energetic

My husband and I were dropped off here at the end of our tour expecting to spend an hour. We stayed 3 hours. The restaurant is right on a beautiful beach and the grilled jerk chicken is to die for. Take a little stroll down the beach from the cruise port and have a great relaxing time on Grand Turk.

Based on reviews from other members, we visited Jack's Shack. All I can say is WOW. What a great place. Janet, one of the owners was wonderful. Very friendly, down to earth and immediately made us feel like we were part of family. Great food, drinks, staff and the beach is clean. Will definitely go back again.

We found this place a couple of years ago while searching for places online - we have now stopped here 3 times while cruising. The beach here is the best we've been on in the Caribbean, so clean and clear and beautiful. The food is great, the beers are nice and cold and the music is fun to listen to!... More
