Steakhouse | Dana Point / Monarch Beach, South Orange County

What an amazingly great experience. Michael Mina is a great chef who has restaurants throughout the world. This Bourbon Steak (Mina has several) offers the highest quality, perfectly cooked food of every kind. And the service is uniformly great, from the maitre d’s and receptionists to the captains, waiters and busboys. Definitely worth going to. More

Our service was excellent, they were very attentive to our table. We had 4 guests with us that had not eaten at Jack’s before and they were all very happy with their meals. One guest, with dietary constraints, had special requests of what she wanted as part of the meal she ordered and they were happy to accommodate her without hesitation. Jack’s is an excellent restaurant. More

Seafood | Dana Point / Monarch Beach, South Orange County

Have been coming here for years and it never disappoints! While I typically choose one of several favorites such as the Japanese style marinated swordfish, the gumbo or the scallops, I was lured by the King Salmon special and it was fantastic! My husband had one of his usuals, the lobster (he loves the way it's cooked on the mesquite grill). Couldn't leave without our favorite dessert, the carrot cake. Best anywhere. More

Mother's day brunch. Food was great, so many choices we couldn't possibly get to trying them all. Great choice to please everyone. Was it worth $30/person? If you can put away 3 plates worth, I can't! More

Discover Dana Point

Few places in the United States have views like Southern California, and Dana Point is one of the most impressive among them. The beautiful weather and the open ocean waves draw some of the most exciting people and the most innovative chefs to the area. Pacific Coast seafood is beyond compare in this area, and many places serve it simply and with a straightforward approach. Just add salt, oil and lemon, and the ocean will flavor the rest. The morning catch is that day's lunch. Another great product of the California coast is the fantastic produce that is fresh and the choice of the season. While the wonderful ocean views draw your eyes, let the taste of the Pacific draw your stomach.
