Jack's is an absolute gem. It's an unpretentious little bistro, with fresh, delicious seafood elevated through the execution of inventive and exciting recipes. The value is outstanding, with Manhattan quality meals at a suburban price point. We are longtime fans' and visit regularly. From pan seared scallops, the aptly titled Lobster Bomb, or a simple lobster grilled cheese, every dish brings out the best natural flavor of the ingredients. You will not be disappointed by a visit to Jack's!
Great quality! Awesome Service! The team at Jack's is always accommodating to dietary preferences and requests!
Great food, great service. Would definitely come back!
I have been craving a lobster roll for a long time. Finally decided to go and have one and be so very disappointed. The lobster meat was dry, the roll a bit doughy. I've had much better there. this was just eh. maybe another try?
Food was delicious, our waiter very helpful and friendly. We had crab, lobster fritters, pan seared shrimp, lobster tails and the sliders. We will definitely be back, highly recommend Jack’s.
Hi. Thank you for coming in. We appreciate the 5 star review. we're open for pickup and delivery. Please stay safe. Jack
All lobster dishes were poor quality lobster and overcooked. As we’re the steamers... small chewy and inedible. Corn made my daughters hand break out in a rash. Salad was lackluster and soggy.
The quality of the food is excellent.
Crab cakes are amazing. Service was prompt and friendly. Definitely will go back. BYOB
Hi. Thank you for coming in. We appreciate the 5 star review. See you again. Jack
Lobster dinner was great! Just enough portion. Lobster was cooked right, soft & delicious. Our server was attentive even though it was busy for Valentine’s celebration. The music fits the occasion and we can hear it well even if so many customers. Thank God for open table because we had no wait time. We’ll definitely return to this local restaurant, 7 minutes from our house!!!- Liza & Bob
Hi. Thank you for choosing us for VD. Glad that you enjoyed your experience. Hope to see you again soon. Jack
Business was brisk on Valentine's Day -- first time at this location. We both opted for the lobster special. The large bowl of lobster bisque was wonderful, best I have ever had in NJ. The lobster was good, accompanied by corn on the cob clearly cooked hours earlier and microwaved. I had to flag down the waitress to ask for butter and salt. Cole slaw was mediocre. We decided to split the special dessert, a red velvet whoopie pie, but should have skipped it as it was overcooked (hard crust) and bland. Not very impressed for all we spent on dinner out that evening...
Hi. Thank you for coming in. Upset that you didn't quite have a 5 star experience. Hope to see you again. Jack
So much fun. A Maine moment without the drive. Friendly service, cool guests, delicious lobster roll, succulent corn on the cob, relaxing environment!! Love this place!
Hi. Thank you so much for coming in and taking the time to write such a nice review. Hope to see you again. Jack
Yes. Have been to this location three other times. Consistently good seafood dishes and anything lobster related, including the lobster bisque soup.
Not a fan of the potato salad.
Hi. Thank you so much for revisiting our location. As I'm writing to you I contacted my Mgr. and Had her taste and fix any problems with the potato salad. As far as the cappucino machine, we have espresso and looking into cappucino. The next time you're in please ask for a taste of the potato salad before ordering to make sure it's to your liking. Hope to see you soon. Jack P.S sorry for the late response
This was my first time here and I was very happy with the service. The arugala salad was enough for 3 people and the fish tacos were excellent. I would definitely go back!

It was just ok. The fried oysters and fish and chips were not crunchy.

We were visiting from Philadelphia and luckily stumbled on this amazing restaurant. The seafood was so fresh and prepared perfectly. There’s a lovely liquor store directly across the street—it’s a BYOB. So delicious!
Hi. Thank you for coming in. We appreciate the nice review. Hope to see you again when you're up this way again. Jack
The restaurant is nice and clean. Service is very good. Ordered the signature dish, Lobster Roll. The sandwich was dry. The homemade potato chips were very good. Had the New England Clam Chowder in a bread bowl which was also very good.

Just what I've been looking for. A place where you can get a cold lobster roll or a hot lobster. BYOB makes it better. Waiter was attentive place is bright and fun.
