Clams strips were heavy with frying oil .. Not great.. Onion rings were very tasty and hot dog was good but bun could have been toasted more.. Lady who took our order acted like she was really out out having to help us.

Stopped by for a quick bite on a Saturday evening and was delighted by the chowder. Creamy, very hot(!), and full of fish, this is great chowder! The ordering is a bit weird: order outside, get tray (with cup for chowder) outside, but then get your food inside (where they dish out the chowder). Also, the onion rings were made... More

Paid $48 for what I could have bought at Long John Silver's fast food restaurant. Paid $4 extra for salmon and the piece was 1" x 4" in size. Very disappointing.

If you're looking for huge portions of fried seafood, this is the place. The experience here is going to be average and everything is self service. You can sit out on the deck upstairs or in the dining area and listen for your number to be called. It can become a little annoying since it's over a loudspeaker and continuous... More

Group of 6 went to little jacks and wee all enjoyed our diner. One that was really good was the Haddock platter a lot of fish and good. Scallops also was a winner! Lobster roll was pritty good. Overall we enjoyed our meal and would recommend for a reasonable meal. Service was good and the place is clean.

Went for what we thought would be a lovely night sitting outside overlooking the water. The 15 minute wait took an hour and 20 minutes. Dinner was just fair - nothing special. They use too much garlic and much to much sauce on their dishes - it overpowers the fish.

I have eaten here in the past and the food was pretty good but not this time. I ordered a lobster and it came without anything to crack the shell. I had to ask for one and it took 5 minutes to locate a cracker. I still had difficulty cracking the extremely hard shell.They should crack them somewhat like many... More

Have not tried Little Jacks in many years. Window service, as they call your number and you get your meals. Very friendly order takers. We had a party of 5 including my grand daughter whom just loved the salmon. The onion rings were very good, but small serving for the price, and the steak tips were good. Fried clams were... More

A typical great Beachside seafood restaurant like we all know and love in New England, Little Jack's is the best on this beach, my wife and her gang have been coming here for decades. Order some clams or a lobster outdoors and come in to eat, get some onion rings and ask for tartar sauce which goes great but most... More
