I originally visited this place before it was called Jacks BBQ. In fact I don't think it even had a name back then. The original building, which is still part of the current one, consisted of a long plywood shed, with a plywood bar and outdoor bar stools for open air eating and drinking. Back then it was a beer...

Wanna see the local peeps? Wanna hang out in a real piece of Florida? Look no further. Reasonable drink prices. Pool tables and a swimming pool. Not for hypochondriacs! Good staff.(not infections, HA!) If your hungry, try the places across the street. I think the cook lives in the kitchen. This is the St.Auggie mainstay for locals since I was... More

This is a great locals place. They have a bar, a deck area, and a pool. Their food menu is small but covers the BBQ and burgers venue. The staff and owner are great people. The decor is a little dated but original. We enjoyed the food and the company.

We stopped by Jacks for an evening drink. It's a shame that the two mixed drinks we got were awful. How can you mess up a vodka & club soda?! So I suggest if you do find yourself at this dump only order what is already bottled. Also we sat outside and couldn't even hear each other at our table... More

My wife and I ate lunch here. It was pretty weak. We had a beer and a BBQ sandwich. My beef was dry and not that flavorful. There was no real selection of BBQ sauce. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Stopped by for drinks wished it would have been more upkept. Dirty coolers where they kept some spirits and ice. Looked like it needed a serious spray down but we stayed anyway cause the locals were cool. had some good conversations and slightly pricey drinks. Flip a coin on if we should try again or not.

Thank 2IrishFans

jacks bar be que is unique. We are the only local restaurant with a full service bar that also has a pool for our customers enjoyment. our recently added music venue has been a hit with locals and regional musicians alike. Jacks has been a locals favorite for decades,yet visitors always feel welcome. The only way to truly appreciate it is to come and spend a little time at a REAL locals restaurant.
