Diner Reviews
  • "Enjoyed a great dinner at this establishment once again. Started things off with a couple of well mixed drinks while waiting for food to be served. Beach roll was simply delicious and flatbread chicken special was equally tasty. Service was excellent and very quick. Check this place out and give it a try if you've never been here before."

  • "We love everything about this place. The servers are so friendly...food is amazing...nice atmosphere. We come here as often as we can!"

  • "Place is dirty. Walls, carpet, table, menu , and bathroom. My swordfish dinner was not edible. Fish must have been frozen twice. Also I thought spinach and quinoa sounded healthy but were drenched in butter. They didn't care that I couldn't eat it. Still charged me $26 for it. This is not a restaurant for anyone that appreciates good or fine dining."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "This is not the best quality for the food's price. Although the noise was minimal, and the service was semi fast, the food was not the best experience. With burnt meat, and pure fat meals, this is not the best choice considering its area. The spaghetti was filled with butter and oil, and had no flavor whatsoever."

  • "I went with my parents for Father's Day. Everyone was friendly and the food was absolutely delicious and reasonably priced. The Blue Long Island drink I requested was made perfectly, they didn't skimp on the alcohol. The only mild issue, perhaps it is their style to not be around too much so diners can enjoy time alone, but I would have preferred a bit more occasional presence of our waitress. Aside from that, my family and I plan to patronize this restaurant in the near future."

  • "Consistently better than good meals with service to match."

  • "We are big fans of Jack Halyards, and this visit included a special with roasted scallops and crab over pasta that my husband enjoyed immensely after his favorite local raw oysters. I had the tuna tataki appetizer, always delicious, and a double crunchy spicy tuna roll. From steak to sushi, Jack Halyards has it all!"

  • "Creative menu .... halibut with lobster risotto was outstanding!"
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "This restaurant gets better and better each time I come. My friend thinks they have one of the best burgers he has ever eaten...a real rave. The lobster mashed potatoes were OUTRAGEOUS! My chicken was cooked exactly the way I requested. Service is always professional and friendly."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "The food was very good. However we were very disappointed that the menu did not match what was on line. The whole "simply grilled" portion was eliminated that day per the waiter. I also feel the prices were too high with the lack of ambiance in this restaurant. However the food was very good. "

  • "Never even got out of my car. Pulled into the parking lot and was told I could not park in their lot because they were having an event for a local group. Not fond of being chased out of an establishment's parking lot when I had a reservation. No offer was given as to where I might park - just that I could not use their lot. Went to Angelina's in East Norwich and had an absolutely marvelous dinner and wonderful experience. Don't plan of even attempting Jack Halyards ever again."

  • "Jack halyards has an amazing chef! Good food is the best testament to a great restaurant and the most important. Ambiance is wonderful here- warm, inviting, friendly. All the staff is very competent and super nice to the customers! They make your visit memorable and have you coming back again and again. Weekend e endings are so nice-live entertainment is a definite asset to add to an already enjoyable visit. By far our favorite place to go!"

  • "This is truly one of the better restaurants on the north shore. The menu is diverse with many interesting dishes. The wait staff is well trained and very pleasant. We always enjoy dining at Jack's"

  • "If I had more than 2 thumbs I'd use them. Spinach avocado dip to savor. Ribs juicy tender and enough to bag ssome. Oyster Bay amber-2 fers what's not to like?=NOTHING, John the server was attentive but never hovering even tho single diners usually get rushed."
    Dined on 5/1/2014
  • "Very enjoyable dinner. We were glad to be seated away from the bar. The dining room we were in was quiet and relaxing. Closer to the bar with live music, it would have been far too loud for conversation and not nearly as pleasant. It really depends on what you are looking for and the mood you are in. We will definitely go to Jack Halyards again."

  • "We have been to Jack Halyards many times over the years and, as usual, Jack Halyards served two top quality fish dishes Friday night--halibut and swordfish. It just doesn't get any better."

  • "We decided to bring a group of friends to Jack Halyards for the Mardis Gras celebration we heard they were having and were not disapointed. The 8 of us had a great meal that was made up with the Cajun cuisine specials for the day. The baked oystes with a white truffle cream sauce as well as the andouille and cornmeal stuffing baked clams were delicious. The gumbo was full of amazing flavors. Dinner highlights were the crawfish etouffee and the BBQ white shrimp. Our server was very attentive and personable despite having several large tables at the same time. Nice balence between festive partiers in bar the dining area allowing chat amongst friends while still feeling a part of the celebration of the evening. We will be back!"

    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "This place is a new favorite! Small with quaint decor, but the food is outstanding and the people who work there are super friendly. This is the perfect place to go if you want a nice night out where you can actually have a conversation without yelling. We'll worth the drive!"
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "I have been here several times. Each time is better than the time before. The staff is so accommodating and friendly. The food is great, especially the SUSHI! I almost don't want to write a great review because I am afraid this restaurant is going to get too popular and I won't be able to get a table on a Saturday night!!!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Substituted red sauce for white on pasta. Informed us a bottle of wine was half price that day. Would not have known. Friendly service."

  • "This place was absolutely fantastic! If you happen to be in the beachside town of Oyster Bay, Jacks should be a spot to visit for a quality dinner."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Jack Halyards continues to be the best restaurant in Oyster Bay. Our two fish dishes were excellent; served efficiently and courteously by Eric and there was live music! It just doesn't get much better."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "We were very disappointed this time, since we had been here many times, because of the menu. They seemed to be between menus and had a very limited one this night. Many of the items that we enjoyed were not available, especially the sushi (a new sushi chef would supposedly be there the next night). We'll go back if the menu changes."

  • "A FEW GOOD FRIENDS ENJOYED A GREAT MEAL NEW YEARS EVE AT JACKS HALYARDS. THE FOOD CAME OUT HOT AND PLENTY TIME BETWEEN COURSES. WE WERE NOT RUSH OUT BY THE STAFF WHO WAS VERY ATTENTIVE TO OUR NEEDS."

  • "My family and I continue to visit this neighborhood gem often. We are always very pleased with the freshly prepared selections of yummy dishes. We each had different fish dishes which were both perfectly cooked and pleasantly presented."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Usually this restaurant is wonderful on all counts, but it fell short Sunday night; the rice was way too salty, and they pre-oiled the loaf bread which caused a sloppy mess when slicing. Plus, they were out of 2 dishes I usually order there."

  • "Great salads and small bites menu. seafood was very good!"

  • "Great food with good service. A little loud for my taste, but it provided lots of enthusiasm in the room. Well rounded menu with chefs in view of the public. These guys work like horses. They must sleep well at night. Give it a try, you won't be sorry."
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "The food at Halyards was OK but disappointing. I was a bit worried when our waiter said to us that there were so many specials he had a printed menu for us. Surely specials can't be that special if there are that many. The protions were generous."
