Table was ready at reservation time. Server was gracious and helpful. Menu included a selection of vegan dishes in addition to a fine selection to suit anyone. A request to substitute a plated dish item was honored. When we requested a quiet table, the host tried to comply. Food was served hot, fresh and very good.
Ambiance was very good and noise level satisfactory for those of us who were hearing challenged.
If you're looking for a casual, warm and inviting local restaurant with good food and friendly staff, Jack's is your place. The food is consistently good, and the service always warm and friendly. Jack makes diners feel very welcome, as does the waitstaff. Entrees are good, especially the lobster ravioli and seafood dishes. Sides are also very good, in particular the braised carrots. There are better restaurants in south Orange County; certainly more expensive establishments; but it's pretty hard to beat Jack's for a pleasant overall dining experience.
Excelente aviente para tener una cena tranquila y relajada!! La comida muy rica!! Bonito lugar.
Food was great, service was great drinks were not that great at all. Moscow mule had really no ginger beer and my specialty cocktails was pretty bad too!
This is one of our favorite go-to restaurants. Always excellent...plus, the bartender makes the BEST dirty vodka martini around.

What's not to like here? Well, perhaps the decor is not modern & flashy, but the food makes up for this. The pour for a drink is full. The meat is grass-fed, & the restaurant uses lots of organic. The entree comes with a salad also. The service is friendly & attentive. This is a neighborhood gem with a parking lot also.
Jack's Dana Point is very consistent and never disappoints. The staff is friendly, cordial, and most have been there for years, adding to the "going home" vibe. The food is delicious, and Jack is one of the nicest people in the restaurant business. Jack's is my favorite restaurant, by far.
Really like the food and dining experience. Just a simple nice place with great food!
Great food and staff

Excellent service, great food. The eggplant parmesan is to die for.
Great food and friendly service.
The folks at Jack's always make diners feel very welcome, including Jack himself. Service is always first rate, and the food is excellent.
Arrived early for our 5:45 dinner reservation and were seated right away. The food and service were excellent. Our only complaint was that we arrived during happy hour but could not get the happy hour drink price even though our booth was adjacent to the bar area. In addition the same maître d’ who showed us to our table and told us that, showed another couple to a booth in our area carrying their drinks. Poor business acumen.
Great meal. Service slow.
As faithful customers for more than twenty years, we are admittedly biased. However, there is simply no better option in South County for quality food at a reasonable price. The fish specials are always outstanding. And if you are in the mood for a pasta dish (Saliccia) or salad (Greek or Spinach), Jack's offers many choices. Jacks is a family owned business, and never fails to exceed our dining expectations.
Best atmosphere and great people who work there.

The food is always delicious, the wait staff very friendly and helpful, the atmosphere welcoming and the noise level low!! We thoroughly enjoyed our time there.
We sometimes forget about this cozy local spot. Everything about it is great. Maybe a few more veggie options or some more creative specials. But overall love it.
A great local restaurant in Dana Point. Great choices of entrees as well as daily specials. Have been going there for years, and have never been disappointed.
I loved the neighborhood feel of Jack's. I could tell I was surrounded by "regulars". The food was very good. We started with sharing 2 small pizzas, one vegan and the other with shrimp and other goodies and an eggplant appetizer. Both pizzas were excellent, very thin crust and perfectly complimentary toppings. The eggplant was delicious as well, all 5 of us agreed on this review thus far. Everyone was very pleased with their entrees as well. I would definitely go back. The only negative was the service...slow.
Jacks is Always awesome!!! Exceptional food, great affordable prices & super friendly staff. This place is a hidden gem!!
Jack's is my absolutely favorite Dana Point restaurant: great food, cordial and attentive service, and the perfect ambience for dinner and conversation without having to shout. I wish it would go on forever.
This is one of the few spots near Dana Point harbor with veggie options. My mom is vegetarian, so I was happy we weren't limited to seafood. I, however, had the warm salmon salad, and the salmon was AMAZING--cooked and seasoned so well.
The food is always delicious and the service is excellent as well. It is our favorite local spot.
We've dined at Jack's many times and have always enjoyed the experience. Jack makes everyone feel welcome and the food is consistently good. The ambiance is cozy and inviting, the service is always good, and the food will not disappoint. Jack's has become one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants.
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.
Jacks is one of the best restaurants
Service , ambiance , and most importantly the food is phenomenal
Jack's is always a good neighbourhood choice when I am in town. The food quality is good, pricing is reasonable, and I have recommended it and brought family and friends here. They had a limited menu for Mother's Day, so it was difficult for me to accommodate my diet restrictions, but it was good. The rest of my party enjoyed their selections as well. We will be back.
Jack's is the best, pizza, pasta and you gotta try the eggplant parmesan, Grandma's recipe, the best in the west. Cheers!
What I like most about Jacks is the intimacy. It’s a neighborhood bar, delightful dining experience and never overwhelming. The people are very welcoming and the food is delicious. . One of my favorite meals is Chicken Picatta. Served with fresh vegetables and pasta and a salad. A wonderful meal. I dine at Jacks quite often because it’s a comfortable place to be. The food is always fresh and excellent.
Jack’s is always good and a hometown favorite! Food and service are reliably excellent.
Had a the duck salad that was on special for the evening/week and it was bar none one of the best salads I have ever had. Had a small pizza for my entree which was utter perfection. The crust was crisp throughout on the bottom yet had a delicate chew about it. Toppings were well chopped and placed throughout the pizza so every bite was total bliss!!
Local Italian restaurant; happy hour at the bar only, limited menu, felt like I was at my Italian aunts house in Connecticut.
Old decor, excellent server, overall would not go back with all the other choices in So Orange County.
Great local restaurant - great service and great food at reasonable prices - a rare find these days - it's our go to place for birthdays and anniversaries - and the bar food is ideal for an informal drink with good appetizers -
