Enjoyed eating in the garden at Jack Tar. The food was very good and the server was friendly. The location is a nice walk from Harborside House

Inside, on the patio or in the bar ... perfect. Wife - hostess / Husband - chef. Reasonable prices ... nice selection of great menu items. $5 pizzas (5 - 7 pm). No rush dining. A little loud inside just because people are enjoying themselves....More

Good food with fun specialty drinks. Service always pleasant. Love the brick wall of the bar and outdoor seating in the summer. Can be loud in the winter.

I have eaten here for dinner a few times, but I love this place for apps. They have a $5 pizza menu from 5-7 daily which includes a "larger-than"personal pizza with a thin crust in your choice of cheese, veggie or bbq chicken. They also...More

It has been (too) a long time since we dined and we were reminded what Jack's has been around so long. The food is exceptional, yet "normal", American fare and the attentiveness of staff was commendable
