My mom and I came in around 1, was kind of busy. It was definitely short staffed, with one cook and maybe 2 waitresses. But it's a small place, so we didn't think much of it, Took about 5 minutes to get our drink orders...More

We came in for lunch at 11 on a weekday. We were nostalgic about Jack's, having eaten there years ago and having had delicious hamburgers previously. Unfortunately, it was mostly inedible. We both had hamburgers with fries. My "medium" hamburger was so bloody that the...More

Great diner feel. We wanted great, greasy, hangover food, and this is where we our paddle board instructor told us to go! It was exactly what we wanted. Yum!

We were staying nearby and Jack's was very convenient to stop by for a quick breakfast. It's nothing fancy, but the food was fine, the price was good, and the people were pleasant.

I have eaten breakfast here during several Spoleto visits. It never fails to provide exactly what I need - a good hearty breakfast. Not gourmet, not high end, not too pricey, friendly service, and decent eggs, bacon, potatoes and grits. Very satisfied.
