Jack's Shack has lots of options, but we cannot get past the cheesesteak. There are fantastic (won award for best in Stone Harbor) and personally I would extend that award to include Philly (and I have tried many there).

Stumbled upond this little place while wondering around. The place doesn't appear real big. I decided to have a Hamburger. The patty appears to be Gand made. I ordered it medium, as I was eating it the juices were dripping on my fries. A lot of places you get a burger cooked medium it's dry. Not here . The only... More

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

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.
