We loved hanging out in the ocean right in front of Jack's Shack. The beers were so expensive so that was a little disappointing, but really everything in Grand Turk is the same. We read the rave reviews about the Jerk Chicken and it was, just okay. Nothing to write home about. The beach on the other hand, the best!

Fun place just a 10 minute walk from the Cruise Pier. Spicy Conch Fritters were very good. Served on top of rice and beans with Jerk chicken made an excellent lunch. Jack came out with tubes of a Jello and vodka mixture. One person on one side, one on the other. You either suck or blow to deliver the tasty... More

Jack's Shack is a great place to eat, drink, and have fun. The jerk chicken was awesome, but I never did get my conch fritters. They said the would bring them to me. I went back up to the food prep area and it was so crowded I just gave up. I will say that it was very very busy... More

This place was recommended to us over Margaritaville. It's located as far as you can go to the left of the beach as you leave the pier. They did not charge for use of beach chairs, some places were. We did not get the use of an umbrella and I cannot tell you if they charged for them, I suspect... More

We are glad you enjoyed our beautiful beach. Grand Turk has to import almost all of its food and drinks. The government raises money by placing import duties on the imports, thus food and drinks are very expensive for us to purchase. For instance a case of 24,coronas cost us $72.00 to buy. We try to have fun with all... More

Great beach day from cruise ship. Nice beach and water but the best part is the food and drinks and of course Topher. Turks Head beer, cracked conch, conch fritters, jerk chicken. Not much more you could want in a beach bar!

Nice atmosphere away from Margaritaville. You can print the coupon for free rum from the website. It was quite busy when we went, and a bit hectic, but worth the stop. When you get off of the ship, go left and keep walking. If you're lucky, you may get to see Jack's dog.

Not really impressed - got the jerk chicken and fish sand and supposed to get fries. Three times we asked for them and we finally left. The chicken I would say was ok..but had better jerk chicken in Jamaica. Really overpriced.

The food was delicious.The jerked chicken was excellent, and the service was fast.It was located on the beach and very lively with music and people. It was awesome!
