An nice neighborhood restaurant with a varied menu, casual atmosphere and good service. We've been to Jack's about 6 times over the past 4 months and it's been consistently good. The menu features a variety of healthy choices, including gluten-free, as well as very good sea food and pastas. It features a good wine list, a cozy and welcoming atmosphere, and given the quality of the food, price is very reasonable. Jack's is not fancy, but it does offer very good dining in a pleasant atmosphere with good service. You will not be disappointed.
Jacks is a warm friendly place where you can go for a special occasion or spur of the moment out to dinner night. Great fish, the halibut is delicious and done just right. Martinis are excellent and a very nice selection of wines. Best seafood around for a nice quiet pleasant dinner.
THIS WAS OUR FIRST VISIT TO JACK'S. OUR MAIN DISHES WERE BOTH SPECIAL.
MY HUSBAND HAD TROUT ALMADEDIN AND I HAD CHILIAN SEA BASS.
BOTH WERE EXCELLENT AND THE PORTIONS WERE LARGE. WE WERE TOO FULL
TO TRY THE DESSERT WHICH SOUNDED SO GOOD. WE WERE SEATED
IN THE SOUTH ROOM. CAREFUL WHERE YOUR SIT AS THE AIR-CONDITIONING
CAN BE ALITTLE UNCONFORTABLE. WE ALSO WOULD LIKE TO TRY THEIR LUNCH
MENU. OPEN TABLE DID IT AGAIN. NEXT TIME WE GO TO JACK'S WE PLAN TO GO
EARLY AND HAVE A DRINK AT THE BAR. WE PLAN TO EAT AT JACK AGAIN SOON.
This restaurant was a surprise. We had no expectations other than a reasonably nice and quiet meal. It fully met that expectation. But we were very impressed with the wide availability of gluten free selections. It is hard to dine out with such folks, but even the gluten free food was so good that it makes one think that going gluten free would not be so bad! This restaurant can make everyone happy.
The veal was the most tender I have had in some time. The white bread had a perfectly crispy thin crust and soft flavorful center. All the dishes were excellent.
If you order pizza, and it comes with garlic, and your server mentions that it comes with a lot of garlic, you may want to ask them to go lighter then normal. Of course, you can always pick off a few pieces if it really is more than you prefer. That is probably the best thing to do to preserve the full taste experience, while adjusting to taste at the table.
This was s nice relaxing upscale meal experience. You should certainly try it out.
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Jack's. It did not disappoint. The food was fresh and delicious (and I am very picky). In addition, the service was excellent. I have already recommended Jack's to several of my friends.
The food is consistently good, the drinks are great and the people are friendly. Our favorites dishes are the trout and the lamb.
The food and the ambience never disappoint. We enjoy bringing friends here whenever we are in town. Great attention to service and the food is well prepared with fresh ingredients.
Going there for a few years and found that the last two times there the Turner Sole was dry.
Waitress kind of abrupt & not very welcoming. Sloppy service - actually spilled wine while pouring from the bottle & didn't clean up, ditto with water service. Pasta was over cooked & marinara was very thick & tasteless. Comped us corkage when we gave them feedback on the pasta. Have been here twice now & both times came away disappointed - probably won't be back.
Enjoyed the lemon sole and Caesar salad. Very friendly staff, outstanding service. Casual spot, popular with the locals.
We have an early dinner there before catching a show at the Coach House. Perfect for that..we split the Seafood special which was Halibut and a Salmon salad. Both were good. Main dish took a little long to be served but we were talking in a hurry so it was fine. We had a window seat so lighting was fine, locals were there having fun, we struck up some conversation and had a good time. Good local restaurant! Would go back.
Located in Dana Point's newly developing walking downtown, this spot has great food and wonderful service. The staff were polite, upbeat, attentive and the food was tasty and fabulous. Easy parking. We will continue to dine at Jack's
Excellant food..7pm dinner was busy so dinner service was slow for food arrival...still go back...great for dinner conversation we were all able to hear each other which makes it a adult family or romantic place.
I was in the area and decided to try a 2nd visit to Jack's. There is construction outside, which made it difficult to access, but I am glad we did. Food was good, my friend and I both had fish (orange roughy and trout), and both were delicious. Love the background music, "Sinatra-style" classics. Will return again.
Okay, the street is a mess with all the re-design ... but it's worth the trouble to park and go in, relax, have a drink and a great dinner.
